     Considerations for Selling to Cox Capital Partners

1. Our Tender Offer Price is more favorable than the industry average 


According to the Jefferies 2024 Global Secondary Market Review, $112 billion of secondary transaction volume was traded at an average discount of 15% across asset classes. 

By contrast, Cox Capital's Offer Price represents a 7.6% (1) discount to publicly traded BDCs which had similar liquidity constraints prior to listing on national securities exchanges. 

2. Our Tender Offer Price is superior to other third-party tender offers

Cox Capital's Price is over 74% (2) higher than previous third party tender offers.

3. Our Tender Offer Price is in line with historical secondary market prices

Cox Capital's Offer is similar to secondary market transactions over the past four years (3). 

4. Franklin BSP Capital Corp has significant unmet liquidity demand

As of the most recently completed repurchase offer by the Fund, approximately $308 million in liquidity requests were left unmet. Shareholder requests were prorated at just 7.7% of submitted amounts (4).

5. Franklin BSP Capital Corp may dilute shareholders with discounted share offering 

Per a Definitive Proxy (DEF 14A) statement filed with the SEC on 4/19/24, the Fund is seeking approval to sell or otherwise issue up to 25% of outstanding shares at a discount to the Fund's net asset value. 

(1) Represents FBCC nontraded discount to unweighted average traded discount for CION and FSK. Publicly traded BDC data as reported by CEF Advisors as of 4/15/2024.

(2) Third party tender offers represent historical MacKenzie Capital Partners mini tender offer solicitations.
