Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains certain financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). FSKR uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing financial results and believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends and in comparing FSKR’s financial results with other BDCs.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with FSKR’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures(1)


Three Months Ended


March 31, 2021

December 31, 2020

GAAP net investment income per share

$0.57

$0.59

Plus capital gains incentive fees per share

Plus excise taxes per share

0.00

Plus one-time expenses per share(8)

0.02

Adjusted net investment income per share(2)

$0.57

$0.61



1)

Per share data was derived by using the weighted average shares of FSKR’s common stock outstanding during the applicable period. Per share numbers may not sum due to rounding. Share and per share amounts have been adjusted on a retroactive basis to reflect FSKR’s 4 to 1 reverse split of its shares of common stock (the Reverse Stock Split), which became effective on June 10, 2020.



2)

Adjusted net investment income is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted net investment income is presented for all periods as GAAP net investment income excluding (i) the accrual for the capital gains incentive fee for realized and unrealized gains; (ii) excise taxes; and (iii) certain non-recurring operating expenses that are one-time in nature and are not representative of ongoing operating expenses incurred during FSKR’s normal course of business (referred to herein as one-time expenses). FSKR uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing financial results and believes that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other business development companies. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP net investment income to adjusted net investment income can be found above.



3)

Net debt to equity ratio is debt outstanding, net of cash and foreign currency and net payable/receivable for investments purchased/sold and repaid, divided by net assets.



4)

The per share data for distributions reflects the amount of distributions paid per share of our common stock to stockholders of record during each applicable period.



5)

See FSKR’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 for important information, including information related to the calculation and definition of weighted average annual yield on accruing debt investments, weighted average annual yield on all debt investments, variable rate debt investments, fixed rate debt investments, other income producing investments and non-income producing investments.



6)

Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. See FSKR’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 for a description of FSKR’s revenue recognition policy.



7)

Does not include investments on non-accrual status.



8)

FSKR’s one-time expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2020 were approximately $3 million resulting from banker’s fees in connection with the proposed merger with FSK.
