Revision To Chart 1 In My Article - OXLC - A Return To Normalcy?

|Includes: Oxford Lane Capital (OXLC)

Please see my revised Chart 1 from my recent article on OXLC In the revised chart I included the issuance of common shares and the repurchase of preferred shares in my calculations. I am revising my chart for two reason (NYSE:X) to show the impact on OXLC's FV NAV and Intrinsic Value NAV of their issuance of new common shares (I purposely did not include in my original article because I did not have enough color into their transaction) and (NYSE:Y) to include the impact of the announced repurchase of preferred shares will have on their asset coverage test (quite frankly I was so focused on their portfolio matrices, I simply forgot about the announced repurchase).

As the reader can see the issuance of common shares improved OXLC's FV NAV by $0.18 and ther repuchase of the preferred shares (at par) increased the asset coverage ratio to 2.53x, which is significantly better than my original projection of 2.1x.

I am not assuming any changes to my projected NII simply because I don't know when the common stock was sold and the preferred shares were repurchased. I did include roughly $20 million of new investments during the quarter, which may be a little aggressive so my new guess would be between $0.30 - $0.35 but it really depends on their investment activity in the quarter.

While the issuance of shares was accretive to OXLC's FV NAV, it destroys $0.45 of Intrinsic Value NAV since the shares were issued below $12.08. I hope this revised chart helps my readers to understand the impact that OXLC's decision to include ROC in their dividend has on its NAV.
