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). FSK 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 FSK'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 FSK'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 FSK'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 FSK's normal course of business (referred to herein as one-time expenses). FSK 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 FSK's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2019 for a description of FSK's investment
strategies, including its definition of "direct originations."



5)

See FSK's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2019 for important information, including
information related to the calculation and definition of weighted average annual yield on accruing debt investments, weighted
average annual yield on all debt investments, variable rate debt investments, fixed rate debt investments, other income producing
investments and non-income producing investments.



6)

Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. See FSK's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30,
2019 for a description of FSK's revenue recognition policy.



7)

Does not include investments on non-accrual status.



8)
