Owl Rock Capital Corporation’s ORCC second-quarter 2020 earnings per share of 34 cents missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 8.1%. Moreover, the bottom line declined 19% year over year.
This downside was mainly due to the COVID-19-led turmoil in the financial markets.
Quarter in Detail
In the quarter, total investment income was $190.2 million, up 8% year over year. This upside can be attributed to a strengthened investment portfolio. However, the same was partly offset by a decline in portfolio yield.
New investment commitments were $342.7 million, down 53.1% year over year.
The company concluded the second quarter with investments in 102 portfolio companies with an aggregate fair value of $9.2 billion.
Net operating expenses of $101 million rose 79.2% year over year due to higher management fees, performance-based incentive fees and professional fees.
