FSIC III Stockholder Returns

*The net investment amount is the institutional offering price excluding estimated offering expenses of 1.5%.

**The annualized distribution rate is expressed as a percentage equal to the projected annualized distribution amount per share (which is calculated by annualizing the regular weekly cash distribution per share as of the date indicated, without compounding), divided by the net investment amount per share as of the date indicated. The annualized distribution rate shown may be rounded. For the quarter ended March 31, 2016, 100% of FSIC III’s distributions were funded through net investment income. The determination of the tax attributes of FSIC III’s distributions is made annually at the end of FSIC III’s fiscal year and a determination made on an interim basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of FSIC III’s distributions for a full year. The actual tax characteristics of distributions to stockholders are reported to stockholders annually on Form 1099-DIV. No portion of FSIC III’s distributions during the quarter ended March 31, 2016, was funded through an expense reimbursement from the fund’s sponsor. The payment of future distributions on FSIC III’s shares of common stock is subject to the discretion of FSIC III’s board of directors and applicable legal restrictions and, therefore, there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future distributions. The distribution rate is not guaranteed, and may change or be discontinued at any time.
