PERFORMANCE AND RISK DISCLOSURES

Fund Performance: This presentation is intended for Capitala’s SBIC investment strategy. As such, performance presented in this presentation is limited to Capitala’s Legacy SBIC Funds.

Performance of other non-SBIC vehicles can be made available upon request.


Investment Return Calculations: References herein to the “Asset-Level Return” or “Asset-Level IRR” is calculated as the internal rate of return for the applicable investment, calculated on an aggregate, combined or pooled basis as of a specific date and expressed as a percentage of the aggregate amount invested in such investments. References herein to “Asset-Level MOIC” are to the gross multiple of capital invested for the applicable investment, calculated on a gross, aggregate, combined or pooled basis as of a specific date and expressed as a multiple capital invested. Asset-Level IRR and Asset-Level MOIC include the recognized benefit from, and unamortized impact of all placement fees received by Capitala at the close of each investment.


All Asset-Level IRR calculations are made only with respect to the specific investments referenced herein and do not measure actual returns realized by investors in the Legacy SBIC Fund. Accordingly, the Asset-Level IRR calculations do not take into account management fees, interest and other expenses associated with leverage used by the Legacy SBIC Funds, carried interest or other performance compensation payable to the Legacy SBIC Funds’ general partners and managers and any other costs and expenses to be borne by investors in the Legacy SBIC Funds, all of which will reduce returns realized by investors and in the aggregate are expected to be substantial. Please see Section IV – Summary Fund Terms and the Partnership Agreement for a description of such fees, carried interest and expenses expected to be charged to the Fund. In the case of portfolios of realized and unrealized investments, the “Asset-Level IRRs” are based on realizations and internal valuations of Capitala as of the applicable date.


Gross Return Calculations for Legacy SBIC Funds: References herein to the “Gross IRR” of a Legacy SBIC Fund are to the internal rate of return for capital contributed to the Legacy SBIC Fund by its investors (inclusive of the general partner), distributions made by the Legacy SBIC to its investors, and the Legacy SBIC Fund’s net asset value, calculated as of a specific date and expressed as a percentage return on capital invested in the Legacy SBIC Fund. For purposes of calculating Gross IRR, carried interest payments have been added back to the return in the quarter incurred and any accrued unpaid carried interest has been included in the period-end net asset value. No other expenses, including management fees and interest expense incurred by the Legacy SBIC Fund, have been added back for purposes of calculating Gross IRR. Such gross calculations include all capital invested, including capital provided by investors in the Legacy SBIC Funds, leverage used by the Legacy SBIC Funds, and permitted reinvestments by the Legacy SBIC Funds of realized investment proceeds.


Net Return Calculations for Legacy SBIC Funds: References herein to Net IRR for a Legacy SBIC Fund are to the net internal rate of return for capital contributed to the Legacy SBIC Fund by its limited partners and distributions made by the Legacy SBIC to its limited partners and the limited partners allocated share of net asset value, calculated as of a specific date and expressed as a percentage return on capital invested in the Legacy SBIC Fund. References herein to Net MOIC for a Legacy SBIC Fund are to the sum of the distributions made by the Legacy SBIC Fund to its limited partners and the limited partners allocated share of net asset value, calculated as of a specific date and expressed as a multiple of capital contributed to the Legacy SBIC Fund by its investors.


All net return calculations for the Legacy SBIC Funds are made as of a specific date net of and after deduction for the payment of management fees required to be paid by the Legacy SBIC Fund as of such date (other than any management fees irrevocably waived by the Legacy SBIC Fund), interest and other expense incurred by the Legacy SBIC Fund in its audited financial statements, carried interest distributions made as of such date to the Legacy SBIC Fund’s general partner, unpaid carried interest accrued as of such date, and transaction costs and other expenses incurred by the Legacy SBIC Fund in its audited financial statements. The net return calculations for the Legacy SBIC Funds’ investments do not include any deduction for the irrevocable waiver of $11 million of management fees by the Legacy SBIC Funds between 2007 and 2011, which had the effect of increasing the Net IRR and the Net MOIC for each of the Legacy SBIC Funds. Capitala does not expect to waive or defer any management fees for the Fund. Additionally, all net return calculations for the Legacy SBIC Fund’s investments are net of interest and other expenses associated with leverage obtained by the Legacy SBIC Fund. Some of the Legacy SBIC Funds have had access to, and have obtained, leverage under the SBIC program to finance at least some of their investments.


At the time of Capitala Finance Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CPTA) Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) on September 30, 2013, the partners of SBIC Fund II and SBIC Fund III exchanged their respective interests, based on the fair market value of the assets at the time of transfer, for shares of CPTA. Net IRR and Net MOIC for SBIC Fund II and SBIC Fund III are calculated from the inception of each fund through the exchange of partnership interests for CPTA stock on September 30, 2013. As part of the IPO, SBIC Fund I sold its assets at fair market value in exchange for shares of CPTA. Net IRR and Net MOIC for SBIC Fund I is calculated from the inception of the fund through the asset sale for CPTA stock on September 30, 2013.


Return Calculations – Timing Factors: Gross and Net IRR calculations take into account the timing of cash flows and the dollar amount invested at any given time. Gross IRR calculations for each of the Legacy SBIC Funds are based upon the actual dates of such cash flows, with net asset value, management fees and carried interest assumed to be incurred at the end of each quarter. Net IRR calculations for each of the Legacy SBIC Funds are made using the actual dates of contributions made by and distributions made to the limited partners in such Legacy SBIC Fund. Net MOIC calculations do not take into account such timing factors.


Return Calculations - Treatment of Unrealized Portion of Investments: The Asset-Level IRR, Gross IRR, Net IRR and Net MOIC calculations for each Legacy SBIC Fund and its investors include an estimated valuation of the unrealized portion of such Legacy SBIC Fund’s investments as of the measurement date. Amounts ultimately realized or paid by a Legacy SBIC Fund and its investors at a future time with respect to the unrealized portion of its investments in each case and in the aggregate may differ materially and substantially from its estimated valuations made from time to time. For purposes of calculating Asset-Level IRR, Gross IRR, Net IRR and Net MOIC for the Legacy SBIC Funds, Capitala has valued such unrealized portions of investments at the fair values determined by it in its most recent valuation of that Legacy SBIC Fund’s investments. The fair values of each Legacy SBIC Fund’s investments are determined by Capitala in accordance with GAAP and a methodology that is consistent with the valuation method of the Fund described in the Partnership Agreement.


At the time of Capitala Finance Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CPTA) Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) on September 30, 2013, the partners of SBIC Fund II and SBIC Fund III exchanged their respective interests, based on the fair market value of the assets at the time of transfer, for shares of CPTA. Net IRR and Net MOIC for SBIC Fund II and SBIC Fund III are calculated from the inception of each fund through the exchange of partnership interests for CPTA stock on September 30, 2013. As part of the IPO, SBIC Fund I sold its assets at fair market value in exchange for shares of CPTA. Net IRR and Net MOIC for SBIC Fund I is calculated from the inception of SBIC Fund I through the asset sale for CPTA stock on September 30, 2013.


Specific Calculations May Be Further Qualified: Specific references herein to Gross IRR, Gross MOIC, Net IRR and Net MOIC calculations may be further qualified as to the manner in which they are calculated as may be specifically noted herein. “Investment Information” in Section X – Risk Factors explains further various risks associated with the manner in which investment results and returns are calculated and presented.
