Declaration of Regular Dividend for Second Quarter 2018

CCT's board of directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend
for the second quarter of $0.402 per share, which will be payable on
July 10, 2018 to stockholders of record as of the close of business of
June 29, 2018. As previously announced, a special dividend of $0.101 per
share will be payable on May 21, 2018 to stockholders of record as of
the close of business on May 14, 2018.

Share Repurchase Program

In March 2018, CCT's board of directors authorized a stock repurchase
program. Under the program, CCT may repurchase up to $50 million in the
aggregate of its outstanding common stock in the open market at prices
below the current net asset value per share. Between March 28, 2018 when
the repurchase program commenced, through May 11, 2018, CCT repurchased
and cancelled 990,288 shares for $16.6 million. The timing, manner,
price and amount of any future share repurchases will be determined by
CCT, in its discretion, based upon the evaluation of economic and market
conditions, CCT's stock price, applicable legal and regulatory
requirements and other factors. The program does not require CCT to
repurchase any specific number of shares and CCT cannot assure
stockholders that any additional shares will be repurchased under the
program. The program may be suspended, extended, modified or
discontinued at any time.

__________________________

1 All per share metrics are presented pro forma for the
1-for-2.25 reverse stock split which occurred on October 31, 2017.
Schedule may include balancing figures derived from the other
figures in the schedule and may differ slightly due to rounding
associated with the 2.25x stock split.
2 For comparison purposes to Q1 2018, 2017 management
fees adjusted to 1.5%, one time listing expenses added back, and
income incentive fee recalculated based on current advisor contract.
See full reconciliation above.
3 Originated Strategy Investments are defined as
investments where our Advisor negotiates the terms of the
transaction beyond just the price, which, for example, may include
negotiating financial covenants, maturity dates or interest rate
terms or where we participate in other originated investment where
there may be third parties involved, or a bank acting as an
intermediary, for a closely held club, or similar investment.
4 The weighted average annual yield for accruing debt
investments is computed as (i) the sum of (a) the stated annual
interest rate of each debt investment, multiplied by its par amount,
adjusted to U.S. dollars and for any partial income accrual when
necessary, as of the end of the applicable reporting period, plus
(b) the annual amortization of the purchase or original issue
discount or premium of each accreting debt investment; divided by
(ii) the total amortized cost of debt investments included in the
calculated group as of the end of the applicable reporting period.
Prior to Q3 2017 our weighted average annual yield did not adjust
for any non-accreting or partial accrual investments.
5 Q1 2018 Sales and Redemption includes $97 million of
investments sold to SCJV.
