Forward-Looking Statements

 

This communication contains “forward-looking” statements as that term is defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act, including statements regarding the proposed transactions between Crescent Capital BDC, Inc. (“Crescent Capital BDC”) and the Company pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated August 12, 2019 (as amended on September 27, 2019, the “Merger Agreement”), by and between the Company, Crescent Capital BDC, and the other parties thereto, pursuant to which Crescent Capital BDC (following its reincorporation by merger into the State of Maryland; such Maryland entity referred to as “Crescent Capital Maryland BDC”) will acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock in a stock and cash transaction through a series of mergers (the “Mergers”). All statements, other than historical facts, including statements regarding the expected timing of the closing of the proposed transaction; the ability of the parties to complete the proposed transaction considering the various closing conditions; the expected benefits of the proposed transaction such as improved operations, enhanced revenues and cash flow, growth potential, market profile and financial strength; the competitive ability and position of the combined company following completion of the proposed transaction; and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements concern future circumstances and results and other statements that are not historical facts and are sometimes identified by the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “endeavor,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “overestimate,” “underestimate,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” “continue,” “target” or other similar words or expressions. Forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates and expectations that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. The inclusion of such statements should not be regarded as a representation that such plans, estimates or expectations will be achieved. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such plans, estimates or expectations include, among others, (1) that one or more closing conditions to the proposed transaction, including certain regulatory approvals, may not be satisfied or waived, on a timely basis or otherwise, including that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay or refuse to grant approval for the consummation of the proposed transaction, may require conditions, limitations or restrictions in connection with such approvals or that the required approval by the stockholders of each of Crescent Capital BDC and the Company may not be obtained; (2) the risk that the Mergers or other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement may not be completed in the time frame expected by Crescent Capital BDC and the Company or at all; (3) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the proposed transaction; (4) uncertainty of the expected financial performance of the combined company following completion of the proposed transaction; (5) uncertainty with respect to the trading levels of shares of the combined company’s common stock on NASDAQ; (6) failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction, including as a result of delay in completing the proposed transaction or integrating the businesses of Crescent Capital BDC and the Company; (7) the ability of the combined company to implement its business strategy; (8) difficulties and delays in achieving synergies and cost savings of the combined company; (9) inability to retain and hire key personnel; (10) the occurrence of any event that could give rise to termination of the Merger Agreement; (11) the risk that stockholder litigation in connection with the proposed transaction may affect the timing or occurrence of the contemplated transactions or result in significant costs of defense, indemnification and liability; (12) evolving legal, regulatory and tax regimes; (13) changes in laws or regulations or interpretations of current laws and regulations that would impact Crescent Capital BDC’s classification as a business development company; and (14) changes in general economic and/or industry specific conditions. Some of these factors are enumerated in the filings Crescent Capital BDC and the Company have made with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and will be contained in the materials Crescent Capital BDC and the Company will file or cause to be filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed transactions under the Merger Agreement, including a Crescent Capital Maryland BDC registration statement on Form N-14 (the “Registration Statement”) initially filed on September 30, 2019 (File No: 333-233995), which will include Crescent Capital BDC’s and the Company’s joint definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A that also constitutes a prospectus of Crescent Capital BDC (the “Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus”).

 

 

 

 

The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation that any plans, estimates or expectations will be achieved. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this communication. Except as required by federal securities laws, neither Crescent Capital BDC nor the Company undertakes any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or development, future events or otherwise. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements.
