Explanation of Responses:
1. The purchase reported in Column 4 occurred in two transactions at the reported price. The reporting person undertakes to provide to Solar Capital Ltd.

In addition, the total includes 1,285,013 shares of the Issuer held by Solar Capital Investors, LLC ("Solar Capital I") and 715,000 shares of the Issuer held by Solar Capital Investors II, LLC ("Solar Capital II"), a portion of both of which may be deemed to be indirectly beneficially owned by Mr. Spohler, Mr. Gross and a grantor retained annuity trust setup by and for Mr. Gross by virtue of their collective ownership interest therein.
3. (Continued from Footnote 2) Mr. Spohler disclaims beneficial ownership of any of the Issuer's securities directly held by the SCP Plan, Solar Capital I or Solar Capital II, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein, and this report shall not be deemed an admission that Mr. Spohler is the beneficial owner of such securities for purposes of Section 16 or any other purpose.
