- Net investment income of $5.5 million, or $0.19 per share;
- Net asset value per share as of September 30, 2017 of $9.97;
- Originated $108.7 million of new investment commitments and received $71.3 million in connection with full repayments and exits of investments; and
- On August 7, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.19 per share, payable on December 29, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 15, 2017.
- On October 17, 2017, Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. was appointed as the investment adviser of the Company and Edgar Lee was appointed Chief Executive Officer. Other members of the executive leadership team include Matt Pendo, Chief Operating Officer, Mel Carlisle, Chief Financial Officer, and Kim Larin, Chief Compliance Officer.
“We are very excited to be managing Oaktree Strategic Income,” said Edgar Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Oaktree Strategic Income. “The vast majority of the portfolio is invested in senior secured loans to established middle-market companies that are performing well. We have begun making new investments and over time, we intend to increase our exposure to larger, more liquid first lien loans in both the broadly syndicated and private placement markets. We believe the Oaktree platform and our ability to co-invest alongside other Oaktree funds positions us well to deliver stable income and attractive returns to our stockholders over time.”
Portfolio and Investment Activity
As of September 30, 2017, the fair value of the investment portfolio was $560.4 million and total assets were $608.7 million. The investment portfolio consisted of investments in 67 companies and also included the Company’s investment in FSFR Glick JV LLC ("Glick JV").
At fair value, 89.5% of the Company's portfolio as of September 30, 2017 consisted of senior secured floating-rate debt investments, including 84.9% of first lien loans and 4.6% of second lien loans; 10.3% consisted of a subordinated note in Glick JV; and 0.2% in equity investments in other portfolio companies.
As of September 30, 2017, Glick JV had $126.7 million in assets, including senior secured loans to 23 portfolio companies. The joint venture generated income of $1.2 million for Oaktree Strategic Income during the fourth quarter.
The weighted average yield on the Company's debt investments as of September 30, 2017, including the return on our subordinated note investment in Glick JV, was 7.5%, including 7.3% representing cash payments.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company originated $108.7 million of investment commitments in 10 new and seven existing portfolio companies and funded $108.4 million across new and existing portfolio companies.

Results of Operations
Total investment income for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $11.8 million, including $10.9 million of cash interest income from portfolio investments.
Net expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 were $6.3 million. Net expenses increased slightly from $6.2 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2017.
Net unrealized depreciation on the investment portfolio for the quarter was $20.0 million, which was primarily due to significant write-downs on a number of the Company's portfolio companies, including $10.3 million on one of the Company's investments.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2017, the Company had $43.0 million of cash and cash equivalents, total principal value of debt outstanding of $263.0 million, and $67.0 million of undrawn capacity on its credit facilities, subject to borrowing base and other limitations.

Dividends 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, 2017, there were three investments on which the Company had stopped accruing cash and/or PIK interest or original issue discount ("OID") income that, in the aggregate, represented 5.6% of the debt portfolio at cost and 1.1% at fair value.
