Transaction Benefits


Slide 2

Transaction Benefits 14 Expected NII Accretion Improved economies of scale Expected duplicative public company and administrative cost synergies Further diversification of liabilities with assumption of attractively priced, fixed rate unsecured debt Improved Portfolio Positioning Maintain first lien senior secured focus with a predominately sponsor-backed portfolio Increase in portfolio diversification with 200+ portfolio companies on a combined basis Joint venture concentration reduced to <3% Reduces pro forma concentration of top 10 holdings Ability to selectively rotate legacy FCRD portfolio into Crescent directly originated assets over time Enhanced Scale and Investment Capacity Approximately $758 million in pro forma net asset value and approximately ~$1.6 billion pro forma portfolio (at fair value)(1) Increased market presence / visibility to financial sponsors, management teams and intermediaries Potentially greater stock liquidity given strong positive correlation between market capitalization and average daily trading volume across the BDC sector Enhanced access to debt capital markets on improved terms Estimated pro forma net asset value after taking into account estimated transaction expenses and certain post-closing adjustments. CCAP believes the combination with FCRD provides immediate and long-term value for all stockholders Key Strategic Rationale


Slide 15

Combination is expected to provide immediate NII accretion as a result of greater scale and anticipated operational synergies and the elimination of duplicative expenses Further incremental earnings upside potential as: (i) Crescent seeks to favorably resolve non-performing loans and reinvest proceeds into directly originated transactions; and (ii) the combined portfolio benefits from the increase in rising base rates CCAP (6/30/22) PRO FORMA COMBINED EARNINGS (ESTIMATE)(1) Adjusted Net Investment Income Per Share = $0.41 Adjusted Net Investment Income Per Share = $0.44 $ in millions Accretive to CCAP’s Earnings Profile Based on CCAP’s and FCRD’s financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, adjusted for the removal of estimated duplicative expenses. Assumes FCRD’s Logan joint venture contributed $2.0 million to total revenue, which reflects income distributable to FCRD during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 adjusted for the removal of certain one-time financing costs.

No single obligor represents more than 1.8% of the combined portfolio Unsecured debt mix improves from approximately 28% of total debt on a standalone basis to 33% on a combined basis, improving CCAP’s funding profile flexibility CCAP (6/30/22) PRO FORMA Debt to Equity = 1.03x Debt to Equity = 1.17x $ in millions Enhanced Diversification & Flexibility Equity Second Lien First Lien Cash & Cash Equivalents Other Assets Equity Unsecured Debt Secured Debt Other Liabilities Equity Unsecured Debt Secured Debt Other Liabilities LLC/LP Interests Second Lien First Lien LLC/LP Interests Equity Cash & Cash Equivalents Other Assets
