Total investment return-net asset value is a measure of the change in total value for shareholders who held CIC’s common stock at the beginning and end of the period, including distributions paid or payable during the period. Total investment return-net asset value is presented on a “net” basis and reflects management and incentive fees, offering, organizational and other costs, interest expense on borrowed funds and other related expenses that are borne by investors.

Total investment return-net asset value is based on (i) the beginning period net asset value per share on the first day of the period, (ii) the net asset value per share on the last day of the period of (A) one share plus (B) any fractional shares issued in connection with the reinvestment of monthly distributions, and (iii) the value of distributions payable, if any, on the last day of the period. The total investment return-net asset value calculation assumes that monthly cash distributions are reinvested in accordance with CIC’s distribution reinvestment plan then in effect. The total investment return-net asset value does not consider the effect of the sales charge from the sale of CIC’s common stock. The total investment return-net asset value includes the effect of the issuance of shares at a net offering price that is greater than net asset value per share, which causes an increase in net asset value per share. Total returns covering less than a full year are not annualized.
