Rhea-AI Summary

Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. reported strong financial results for the first quarter of 2024, with net investment income per share of $0.55 and adjusted net investment income per share of $0.54. Earnings per share were $0.39, and the net asset value per share decreased slightly to $14.55. The company's investment portfolio comprised mainly of senior secured debt, with total investments at fair value and commitments amounting to $3,954.8 million. The Company also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.45 per share and closed a public offering of $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of unsecured notes due 2027. Despite some investments on non-accrual status, the Company's financial position remains strong.

Positive
  • Strong net investment income per share of $0.55 and adjusted net investment income per share of $0.54 for the quarter.

  • Declaring a quarterly dividend of $0.45 per share to shareholders of record.

  • Closing a public offering of $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of unsecured notes due 2027.

  • Ending net debt to equity leverage ratio improved slightly to 1.10x compared to the previous quarter.

Negative
  • Net asset value per share decreased slightly to $14.55 from $14.62 as of December 31, 2023.

  • Some investments on non-accrual status, representing 1.6% and 3.3% of the total investment portfolio at fair value and amortized cost, respectively.

The figures reported by Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. (GSBD) for the first quarter ending March 31, 2024, indicate a consistent performance in terms of net investment income (NII) and a slight decrease in earnings per share (EPS). The NII per share of $0.55, adjusted to $0.54 after excluding purchase discount amortization, demonstrates a stable yield generation capability. The annualized net investment income yield on book value stands at 14.8%, which is a robust indicator of the company's profitability from its investment portfolio.

The net asset value (NAV) per share showed a marginal decline from $14.62 to $14.55. This indicates a slight erosion in asset value, however, the impact is minimal. Total investments at fair value slightly increased, which is positive as it reflects a modest growth in the company's investment portfolio. However, net realized and unrealized losses widened, which could be a point of concern for investors as it reflects non-cash valuation adjustments and actual losses from investments.

The company's leverage, indicated by the ending net debt to equity ratio of 1.10x, provides insight into its capital structure. The slight reduction from 1.11x at the end of the previous quarter suggests a prudent approach to managing debt levels. Furthermore, the mix of secured and unsecured debt positions the company to potentially navigate interest rate fluctuations and credit market conditions effectively.

The dividend announcement of $0.45 per share indicates a commitment to returning value to shareholders and provides an attractive yield proposition. This, combined with the public offering of unsecured notes and at-the-market equity offerings, signifies active capital management strategies aimed at optimizing the balance sheet and funding new investment opportunities.

An in-depth analysis of GSBD's portfolio composition reveals a heavy weighting towards senior secured debt, specifically 96.5% in first lien investments. This high concentration in senior debt is indicative of a conservative risk profile, which prioritizes capital preservation and positions the company well during economic downturns due to their higher claim on assets.

Another key metric, the weighted average yield on debt and income-producing investments, stands at 12.7% at amortized cost and 14.1% at fair value. These yields are impressive and well above the typical corporate bond yields, reflecting both the risk and the strategic positioning of GSBD's portfolio within the market. Coupled with a vast majority of the portfolio bearing a floating interest rate (99.4% of performing debt), the company is positioned to benefit from interest rate increases.

The credit quality in the portfolio is shown by the movement of two portfolio companies from non-accrual to accrual status, hinting at improved financial conditions of the underlying investments. However, the portfolio's weighted average leverage ratio of 6.1x and interest coverage ratio of 1.5x, while stable, should be monitored as they can signify potential stress in the portfolio companies' ability to service debt in adverse conditions.

Total investment income for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 was $111.5 million and $115.4 million, respectively. The decrease in total investment income was primarily driven by a decrease in accelerated accretion of upfront loan origination fees and unamortized discounts.

Net expenses before taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 were $49.6 million and $51.9 million, respectively. Net expenses decreased by $2.3 million primarily as a result of a decrease in the incentive fee.

ENDNOTES

1)

On October 12, 2020, we completed our merger (the “Merger”) with Goldman Sachs Middle Market Lending Corp. (“MMLC”). The Merger was accounted for as an asset acquisition in accordance with ASC 805-50, Business Combinations — Related Issues. The consideration paid to MMLC’s stockholders was less than the aggregate fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, which resulted in a purchase discount (the “purchase discount”). The purchase discount was allocated to the cost of MMLC investments acquired by us on a pro-rata basis based on their relative fair values as of the closing date. Immediately following the Merger with MMLC, we marked the investments to their respective fair values and, as a result, the purchase discount allocated to the cost basis of the investments acquired was immediately recognized as unrealized appreciation on our Consolidated Statement of Operations. The purchase discount allocated to the loan investments acquired will amortize over the life of each respective loan through interest income, with a corresponding adjustment recorded as unrealized appreciation on such loan acquired through its ultimate disposition. The purchase discount allocated to equity investments acquired will not amortize over the life of such investments through interest income and, assuming no subsequent change to the fair value of the equity investments acquired and disposition of such equity investments at fair value, we will recognize a realized gain with a corresponding reversal of the unrealized appreciation on disposition of such equity investments acquired.

 

 

As a supplement to our financial results reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we have provided, as detailed below, certain non-GAAP financial measures to our operating results that exclude the aforementioned purchase discount and the ongoing amortization thereof, as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures include i) Adjusted net investment income per share; ii) Adjusted net investment income after taxes; and iii) Adjusted net realized and unrealized gains (losses). We believe that the adjustment to exclude the full effect of the purchase discount is meaningful because it is a measure that we and investors use to assess our financial condition and results of operations. Although these non-GAAP financial measures are intended to enhance investors’ understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP. The aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

 

2)

The discussion of the investment portfolio excludes the investment, if any, in a money market fund managed by an affiliate of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. As of March 31, 2024, the Company had an investment of $0.5 million in the money market fund.

 

3)

The $0.45 per share dividend is payable on July 26, 2024, to stockholders of record as of June 28, 2024.

 

4)

Total debt outstanding excludes netting of debt issuance costs of $13.0 million and $5.4 million, respectively, as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

 

5)

The fixed versus floating composition has been calculated as a percentage of performing debt investments measured on a fair value basis, including income producing preferred stock investments and excludes investments, if any, placed on non-accrual.

 

6)

Computed based on the (a) annual actual interest rate or yield earned plus amortization of fees and discounts on the performing debt and other income producing investments as of the reporting date, divided by (b) the total performing debt and other income producing investments (excluding investments on non-accrual) at amortized cost or fair value, respectively. This calculation excludes exit fees that are receivable upon repayment of the investment. Excludes the purchase discount and amortization related to the Merger.

 

7)

For a particular portfolio company, we calculate the level of contractual indebtedness net of cash (“net debt”) owed by the portfolio company and compare that amount to measures of cash flow available to service the net debt. To calculate net debt, we include debt that is both senior and pari passu to the tranche of debt owned by us but exclude debt that is legally and contractually subordinated in ranking to the debt owned by us. We believe this calculation method assists in describing the risk of our portfolio investments, as it takes into consideration contractual rights of repayment of the tranche of debt owned by us relative to other senior and junior creditors of a portfolio company. We typically calculate cash flow available for debt service at a portfolio company by taking net income before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) for the trailing twelve month period. Weighted average net debt to EBITDA is weighted based on the fair value of our debt investments and excludes investments where net debt to EBITDA may not be the appropriate measure of credit risk, such as cash collateralized loans and investments that are underwritten and covenanted based on recurring revenue.

 

 

For a particular portfolio company, we also compare that amount of EBITDA to the portfolio company’s contractual interest expense (“interest coverage ratio”). We believe this calculation method assists in describing the risk of our portfolio investments, as it takes into consideration contractual interest obligations of the portfolio company. Weighted average interest coverage is weighted based on the fair value of our performing debt investments and excludes investments where interest coverage may not be the appropriate measure of credit risk, such as cash collateralized loans and investments that are underwritten and covenanted based on recurring revenue.

 

 

Median EBITDA is based on our debt investments and excludes investments where net debt to EBITDA may not be the appropriate measure of credit risk, such as cash collateralized loans and investments that are underwritten and covenanted based on recurring revenue.

 

 

Portfolio company statistics are derived from the financial statements most recently provided to us of each portfolio company as of the reported end date. Statistics of the portfolio companies have not been independently verified by us and may reflect a normalized or adjusted amount. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, investments where net debt to EBITDA may not be the appropriate measure of credit risk represented 39.9% and 42.9%, respectively, of total debt investments at fair value.

 

8)

The Company’s Revolving Credit Facility has debt outstanding denominated in currencies other than U.S. Dollars (“USD”). These balances have been converted to USD using applicable foreign currency exchange rates as of March 31, 2024. As a result, the Revolving Credit Facility’s outstanding borrowings and the available debt amounts may not sum to the total debt commitment amount.

 

9)

The ending net debt to equity leverage ratio is calculated by using the total borrowings net of cash and cash equivalents divided by equity as of March 31, 2024 and excludes unfunded commitments.
