Commenting on the formation of the JV with EIG, Michael Forman, Chairman and CEO of FS Investments, said:

"As a leading provider of institutional capital in the global energy industry, EIG is a perfect partner to jointly manage FSEP given the firm's sector expertise, global reach and scale. We look forward to working together to transition the FSEP portfolio with an eye toward enhancing returns, reducing risk, and creating a liquidity event for our investors through a public listing."

William Sonneborn, President of EIG, added:

"We are honored that after an extensive search, FS Investments and the board of FSEP chose EIG as their partner. We believe that as an integrated team we can improve the existing portfolio and its returns to FSEP investors."

Details of the FSIC-EIG JV

The scope of the FSIC-EIG JV is to create a platform to offer flexible financing solutions for companies in the energy sector. The JV platform will have the scale, flexibility, and energy industry expertise to be able to cater to financing needs of energy and infrastructure Companies across the capital structure. After the JV is formed both companies are expecting to generate fresh deals that will impact the investment portfolio positively and contribute by creating long term value for investors of FS Energy and Power Fund (FSEP).

As per the terms of the agreement, FSIC and EIG will provide investment advisory services to FSEP, subject to receiving approval from shareholders. Additionally, EIG has applied for new exemptive relief order which will allow FSEP to co-invest with EIG's other funds and accounts.

The board of trustees of FSEP has given their approval for this new investment advisory agreement with the FSIC-EIG JV. Later, in January 2018, FSEP plans to start soliciting shareholders' approval for this new investment advisory agreement. Till such time that FSEP is covered under the new investment advisory agreement with the FSIC-EIG JV, EIG will be providing non-advisory services to FSEP.

Due to its partnership with EIG, FSIC has ended its relationship with GSO Capital Partners ("GSO") and signed an agreement for the same. Following the termination of agreement with GSO will no longer be associated with any of FSIC's sponsored funds that are sub-advised by GSO. All parties involved, i.e. FSIC, GSO, and EIG, will ensure the smooth transition and will work in close cooperation to this end. Michael Forman thanked GSO for creating significant value for its investors and borrowers during their partnership with FSIC.
