The Offer will expire Aug. 26, 2015, at 5 p.m. Central Time, unless extended.

On July 28, 2015, the Company's board of directors declared distribution rates of $0.015483 per share for nine weekly record dates beginning on Aug. 4, 2015, through and including Sept. 29, 2015. With the new offering price, the annualized distribution yield will increase from 7.32 percent to 7.49 percent.

On Aug. 10, 2015, the Company's board of directors decreased the offering price of the Company's common stock from $11.00 per share to $10.75 per share. The offering price decrease was effective for subscriptions accepted after Aug. 4, 2015.

As a result of the change in the public offering price, the maximum sales load and the net proceeds per share will correspondingly decrease from $1.10 to $1.075 and from $9.90 to $9.675, respectively.

(1) Corporate Capital Trust's net asset value per share was $9.00 and $9.67 on June 17, 2011, and June 30, 2015, respectively. After considering (i) the overall changes in net asset value per share, (ii) all paid distributions from inception through June 30, 2015, and (iii) the assumed reinvestment of those distributions at 90 percent of the prevailing offering price per share, then the total investment return was 47.7 percent for shareholders who held Corporate Capital Trust shares from June 17, 2011(inception), through June 30, 2015. This cumulative return does not take into account any sales load that was paid by the Company's shareholders. When taking into account the payment of a full sales load of 10 percent, the total investment return for those shareholders becomes 33.0 percent.

This calculation does not take into account any sales load that was paid by the Company's shareholders.
