  • Total investment income was $101.9 million ($1.32 per share) and $379.3 million ($5.26 per share) for the fourth fiscal quarter and full year, as compared with $101.9 million ($1.32 per share) and $262.5 million ($4.32 per share) for the third fiscal quarter of 2023 and the full year of 2022.

The increase for the quarter was primarily driven by higher original issue discount (“OID”) acceleration from investment repayments, partially offset by lower fee income. The increase for the full year was primarily driven by the impact of higher base rates on the Company’s floating rate debt portfolio and the growth of the investment portfolio from the assets acquired in the merger with Oaktree Strategic Income II, Inc. (“OSI2”) (the “OSI2 Merger”).
