NEW YORK, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Rock Capital Corporation (NYSE: ORCC, or the "Company") today reported net investment income of $122.4 million, or $0.31 per share, and net income of $44.0 million, or $0.11 per share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Reported net asset value per share was $14.88 at March 31, 2022 as compared to $15.08 at December 31, 2021.

Craig W. Packer, Chief Executive Officer of Owl Rock Capital Corporation commented, "We are very pleased with our performance this quarter and how our portfolio is positioned for the evolving economic environment. Our credit performance remains exceptional with one of the lowest levels of non-accruals in the BDC sector and our defensive positioning is designed to generate healthy returns through the entire market cycle. Further, with almost all of our portfolio held in floating rate assets, we expect to see upside in the second half of the year from a rising interest rate environment."

The Company's Board of Directors has declared a second quarter 2022 dividend of $0.31 per share for stockholders of record as of June 30, 2022, payable on or before August 15, 2022.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2022

Investment Income
Investment income increased to $264.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $221.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. In addition to the growth in the portfolio, the incremental increase in investment income was primarily due to an increase in dividend income. Included in interest income are other fees such as prepayment fees and accelerated amortization of upfront fees from unscheduled paydowns. Period over period, income generated from these fees slightly decreased. Other income increased period-over-period due to an increase in incremental fee income, which are fees that are generally available to us as a result of closing investments and generally paid at the time of closing. We expect that investment income will vary based on a variety of factors including the pace of our originations and repayments.

Expenses
Total expenses increased to $141.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $117.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, which was primarily due to an increase in interest expense and management and incentive fees. The increase in interest expense was primarily driven by an increase in the average daily borrowings partially offset by a decrease in the average interest rate. Management and incentive fees increased primarily due to an increase in our investment portfolio.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2022, we had $0.3 billion in cash and restricted cash, $7.2 billion in total principal value of debt outstanding, and $1.4 billion of undrawn capacity on our credit facilities. The Company's weighted average interest rate on debt outstanding remained at 2.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. Ending net debt to equity was 1.17x and 1.13x as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
