TriplePoint Venture Growth BDC Corp. Closes Public Offering and Expects to Close Concurrent Private Placement of Common Stock

Share:

TriplePoint Venture Growth BDC Corp. (NYSE:TPVG) (the "Company") today
announced that it has completed an underwritten offering of 6,000,000
shares of its common stock (the "Public Offering") resulting in net
proceeds exclusive of offering expenses to the Company of approximately
$82.2 million, or $13.70 per share. The Company's investment adviser
agreed to bear all of the sales load and to pay to the underwriters an
additional supplemental payment of approximately $0.04 per share (the
"Supplemental Payment"), which reflects the difference between the
public offering price of $13.66 per share (the "Public Offering Price")
and the proceeds per share received by the Company in this offering. In
connection with the Public Offering, the Company has granted the
underwriters for the offering an option to purchase up to an additional
900,000 shares of the Company's common stock.

Concurrently with the Public Offering, the Company agreed to sell
200,000 shares of common stock at the Public Offering Price through a
private placement to certain managed investment vehicles of Colony
Capital, Inc. (the "Colony Private Placement"). Additionally, certain
accounts managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. are required to
purchase 200,000 shares of common stock at the Public Offering Price
pursuant to a prior agreement with the Company (such purchase, together
with the Colony Private Placement, the "Private Placements"). The
Company's investment adviser agreed to pay to the Company the per share
Supplemental Payment in connection with the Private Placements. The
Private Placements are expected to close no later than August 14, 2018.
The Private Placements are exempt from the registration requirements of
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), pursuant
to Section 4(a)(2) thereof.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the Public Offering and
Private Placements to make new investments in accordance with its
investment objective and strategies and for general working capital
purposes.
