(1) Corporate Capital Trust’s net asset value per share was $9.00 and $8.97 on June 17, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2016, respectively. After considering (i) the overall changes in net asset value per share, (ii) all paid distributions from inception through Sept. 30, 2016, and (iii) the assumed reinvestment of those distributions at 90 percent of the prevailing offering price per share, then the total investment return was 53.0 percent for shareholders who held Corporate Capital Trust shares from June 17, 2011 (inception), through Sept. 30, 2016. This cumulative return does not take into account any sales load that was paid by the Company’s shareholders.
