February 23, 2021

NEW YORK, Feb. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Rock Capital Corporation (NYSE: ORCC, or the "Company") today reported net investment income of $114.6 million, or $0.29 per share, and net income of $180.7 million, or $0.46 per share, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020. Reported net asset value per share was $14.74 at December 31, 2020 as compared to $14.67 at September 30, 2020. The fee waiver put in place in conjunction with the Company's IPO expired on October 18, 2020 and as a result, the fourth quarter results reflect the impact of the full fee structure for the majority of the quarter.

Craig W. Packer, Chief Executive Officer of Owl Rock Capital Corporation commented, "We are very pleased with our origination activity this quarter, which allowed us to make significant progress towards our target leverage and a fully scaled portfolio. We believe our investment strategy of building a senior-oriented portfolio across a diversified set of high-quality, middle-market companies has borne strong results, with our third consecutive quarter of NAV growth and healthy credit performance over the course of a very challenging year."

The Company's Board of Directors has declared a first quarter 2021 dividend of $0.31 per share for stockholders of record as of March 31, 2021, payable on or before May 14, 2021.

The fourth quarter 2020 special dividend of $0.08 per share paid to shareholders of record as of December 31, 2020 was the final of six special dividends declared in conjunction with the Company's IPO in July 2019.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE FULL YEAR AND QUARTER ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2020

Investment Income
Investment income increased to $803.3 million for the full year ended December 31, 2020 from $718.0 million for the full year ended December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to an increase in our investment portfolio, partially offset by a decrease in our portfolio's weighted average yield period over period.

Investment income increased to $221.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $202.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to an increase in our investment portfolio, partially offset by a decrease in our portfolio's weighted average yield period over period.

Expenses
Total expenses increased to $283.8 million for the full year ended December 31, 2020 from $217.1 million for the full year ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in interest expense and increase in gross management fees and incentive fees, coupled with the expiration of the management fee and incentive fee waivers. The increase in interest expense was primarily driven by an increase in average daily borrowings, partially offset by a decrease in the average interest rate period over period.

Total expenses increased to $106.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $56.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in interest expense and increase in gross management fees and incentive fees, coupled with the expiration of the management fee and incentive fee waivers. The increase in interest expense was primarily driven by an increase in average daily borrowings, partially offset by a decrease in the average interest rate period over period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of December 31, 2020, we had $5.4 billion in total principal value of debt outstanding and $2.1 billion of liquidity, including upsizes to our credit facilities subsequent to quarter-end. The Company's weighted average interest rate on debt outstanding was 3.2% and 4.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Ending debt to equity was 0.87x and 0.46x for the periods ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

COVID-19 Developments
Through the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company's operating results were impacted by the economic and financial market conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
