Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us.

Also on the call today is Bilal Rashid, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OFS Capital; and Jeff Cerny, the Company's Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. Please note that we issued a press release this morning announcing our second quarter results. This press release was subsequently filed on Form 8-K with the SEC. Both documents can be obtained under the Investor Relations section of our website at ofscapital.com.

The uncertainties and other factors are in some way beyond management's control, including the risk factors described from time to time in our filings with the SEC. Although we believe these assumptions are reasonable, any of those assumptions could prove inaccurate, and as a result, the forward-looking statements based on those assumptions also could be incorrect.

In the second quarter, we had only one loan placed on non-accrual out of a portfolio of 73 investments. In fact, we are encouraged that in this environment some of our portfolio companies have identified opportunities for growth both organically and through acquisitions. We are prepared to support these companies as they pursue these opportunities.
