transmission, storage and retrieval systems or destroy data. Our ability to effectively conduct our business could be severely compromised.
The financial markets we operate in are dependent upon third-party data systems to link buyers and sellers and provide pricing information.
depend heavily upon computer systems to perform necessary business functions. Our computer systems could be subject to cyber-attacks and
unauthorized access, such as physical and electronic break-ins or unauthorized tampering. Like other companies, we expect to experience
threats to our data and systems, including malware and computer virus attacks, unauthorized access, system failures and disruptions. These
failures and disruptions may be more likely to occur as a result of employees working remotely. If one or more of these events occurs,
it could potentially jeopardize the confidential, proprietary and other information processed and stored in, and transmitted through,
our computer systems and networks, or otherwise cause interruptions or malfunctions in our operations, which could result in damage to
our reputation, financial losses, litigation, increased costs, regulatory penalties and/or customer dissatisfaction or loss, respectively.
attacks, acts of war, natural disasters or an epidemic or pandemic may affect the market for our securities, impact the businesses in
which we invest and harm our business, operating results and financial condition.
acts, acts of war, natural disasters or an epidemic or pandemic may disrupt our operations, as well as the operations of the businesses
in which we invest. Such acts, including, for example, Russia’s February 2022 invasion of Ukraine, have created, and continue to
create, economic and political uncertainties and have contributed to global economic instability. Additionally, a public health epidemic
or pandemic, including, for example, COVID-19, poses the risk that we, GECM, our portfolio companies or other business partners may be
prevented from conducting business activities for an indefinite period of time, including due to shutdowns that may be requested or mandated
by governmental authorities. While it is not possible at this time to estimate the impact that any such event could have on our business,
the continued occurrence thereof and the measures taken by the governments of countries affected in response thereto could disrupt the
supply chain and the manufacture or shipment of products and adversely impact our business, financial condition or results of operations.
terrorist activities, military or security operations, or natural disasters could further weaken the domestic/global economies and create
additional uncertainties, which may negatively impact the businesses in which we invest directly or indirectly and, in turn, could have
a material adverse impact on our business, operating results and financial condition. Losses from terrorist attacks and natural disasters
are generally uninsurable.

of our executive officers and directors, and members of the investment committee of GECM, serve or may serve as officers, directors or
principals of other entities, including ICAM or funds managed by ICAM, and affiliates of GECM and investment funds managed by our affiliates.
Accordingly, they may have obligations to investors in those entities, the fulfillment of which might not be in our or our stockholders’
best interests or that may require them to devote time to services for other entities, which could interfere with the time available to
provide services to us. For example, Matt Kaplan, our President and Chief Executive Officer, is a portfolio manager at GECM and a member
of its investment committee.
funds managed by GECM may have different primary investment objectives than we do, they may from time to time invest in asset classes
similar to those targeted by us. GECM is not restricted from raising an investment fund with investment objectives similar to ours. Any
such funds may also, from time to time, invest in asset classes similar to those targeted by us. It is possible that we may not be given
the opportunity to participate in certain investments made by investment funds managed by investment managers affiliated with GECM. GECC’s
participation in any negotiated co-investment opportunities (other than those in which the only term negotiated is price) with investment
funds managed by investment managers under common control with GECM is subject to compliance with the SEC order dated May 12, 2020
(Release No. 33864).
will pay management and incentive fees to GECM and will reimburse GECM for certain expenses it incurs. In addition, investors in our common
stock will invest on a gross basis and receive distributions on a net basis after expenses, resulting in, among other things, a lower
rate of return than one might achieve through direct investments.
