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"). FSIC 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 FSIC'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 FSIC'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.

1)

Per share data was derived by using the weighted average shares of FSIC's common stock outstanding during the applicable period. Per share numbers may not sum due to rounding.



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 FSIC's normal course of business (referred to herein as one-time expenses). FSIC 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)

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.



4)

See FSIC's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2018 for a description of FSIC's investment strategies.



5)

Gross portfolio yield represents the expected annualized yield of FSIC's investment portfolio based on the composition of the portfolio as of the applicable date. FSIC's estimated gross portfolio yield may be higher than an investor's yield on an investment in shares of FSIC's common stock because it does not reflect sales commissions or charges that may be incurred in connection with the purchase or sale of such shares, or operating expenses that may be incurred by FSIC. FSIC's estimated gross portfolio yield does not represent an actual investment return to stockholders, is subject to change and, in the future, may be greater or less than the rates set forth herein.



6)

Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. See FSIC's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2018 for a description of FSIC's revenue recognition policy.
