Management Commentary

Edgar Lee, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation said, “OCSI finished the year strong, highlighted by solid earnings growth and excellent credit quality. Since we began managing OCSI a year ago, we have made significant progress towards optimizing the portfolio as core investments now represent over 88 percent of our portfolio, up from 41 percent as of September 30, 2017. Given our meaningful progress to date, we believe we are well positioned to further enhance our return on equity to our shareholders in 2019.”

Portfolio and Investment Activity

As of September 30, 2018, the fair value of the Company's investment portfolio was $556.8 million and was comprised of investments in 75 companies, including the Company's investments in OCSI Glick JV LLC ("OCSI Glick JV").

At fair value, 89.1% of the Company's portfolio as of September 30, 2018 consisted of senior secured floating-rate debt investments, including 85.0% of first lien loans and 4.1% of second lien loans; 10.5% consisted of a subordinated note investment in the OCSI Glick JV; and 0.4% consisted of equity investments in other portfolio companies.

As of September 30, 2018, the OCSI Glick JV had $166.2 million in assets, including senior secured loans to 31 portfolio companies.  The joint venture generated income of $1.5 million for Oaktree Strategic Income during the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

The weighted average yield on the Company's debt investments as of September 30, 2018, including the return on the Company's subordinated note investment in OCSI Glick JV, was 7.7%.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, the Company originated $91.8 million of new investment commitments in 13 new portfolio companies and two existing portfolio company and funded $91.0 million of investments across new and existing portfolio companies.

During the quarter, the Company received $101.7 million of proceeds from various prepayments, exits, other paydowns and sales and exited nine investments.

Results of Operations

Total investment income for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $14.7 million, including $13.4 million of cash interest income, $0.5 million of payment-in-kind ("PIK") interest income and $0.8 million of fee income from portfolio investments. PIK interest income, net of PIK collected in cash, represented 3.6% of total investment income for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. Total investment income increased $3.1 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2018, which was primarily attributable to the acceleration of interest income and prepayments fees earned in connection with the exit of a certain investment.

Net expenses for the quarter were $9.2 million, a $2.6 million increase from $6.6 million in the prior quarter. The increase was primarily due to a $2.2 million increase in interest expense, which was mainly attributable to a $2.0 million write-off of previously unamortized financing costs in connection with the redemption of the $309.0 million debt securitization.

Net realized and unrealized gain on the Company's investment portfolio for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $2.8 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2018, the Company had $16.4 million of cash and cash equivalents (including restricted cash), total principal value of debt outstanding of $275.1 million, and $179.9 million of undrawn capacity on its credit facilities, subject to borrowing base and other limitations. The weighted average interest rate on debt outstanding was 4.3% as of September 30, 2018.

As of September 30, 2018, the Company’s total leverage ratio was 0.93x debt-to-equity.

Distribution Declaration

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.155 per share, payable on December 28, 2018 to stockholders of record on December 17, 2018.

Distributions are paid primarily from distributable (taxable) income. To the extent taxable earnings for a fiscal taxable year fall below the total amount of distributions for that fiscal year, a portion of those distributions may be deemed a return of capital to the Company’s stockholders.

Portfolio Asset Quality

As of September 30, 2018, there was one investment on which the Company had stopped accruing cash and/or PIK interest or original issue discount ("OID") income that, in the aggregate, represented 0.14% of the debt portfolio at cost and 0.01% at fair value.
