Corporate Capital Trust II Expands Investment Opportunities with Exemptive Relief Order

The SEC order will allow the company to co-invest in originated transactions alongside other KKR Credit accounts

(ORLANDO, Fla.) June 21, 2017 – The Securities and Exchange Commission issued an order granting exemptive relief to Corporate Capital Trust II, a business development company that offers individuals the unique opportunity to invest in the debt of privately owned American companies.

The order permits Corporate Capital Trust II to participate in directly negotiated investments alongside other pools of capital managed by its advisors and their affiliates, including Corporate Capital Trust and other investment funds managed by sub-advisor KKR. This will provide Corporate Capital Trust II’s shareholders access to additional investment opportunities.

In addition to the ability to invest alongside KKR, the order also allows Corporate Capital Trust II to invest in transactions where KKR has greater control over the structure and terms of deals. This provides Corporate Capital Trust II an opportunity to create more value for its shareholders through proprietary sourcing, credit selection, underwriting and ongoing monitoring.

“With exemptive relief, Corporate Capital Trust II will now have the ability to diversify and expand its investment opportunities more than ever before,” said Thomas K. Sittema, CEO of Corporate Capital Trust II. “We believe this will provide a broader range of opportunities and better enable us to deliver quality, risk-adjusted earnings to our shareholders.”
