(1) Distributable net investment income is calculated as net investment income as determined in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or U.S. GAAP, excluding the impact of share-based compensation expense which is non-cash in nature.  Main Street believes presenting distributable net investment income per share is useful and appropriate supplemental disclosure for analyzing its financial performance since share-based compensation does not require settlement in cash.  However, distributable net investment income is a non-U.S. GAAP measure and should not be considered as a replacement for net investment income and other earnings measures presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Instead, distributable net investment income should be reviewed only in connection with such U.S. GAAP measures in analyzing Main Street's financial performance.  In order to reconcile estimated distributable net investment income per share to estimated net investment income per share in accordance with U.S. GAAP, $0.04 per share of estimated share-based compensation expense is added back to calculate estimated distributable net investment income per share.

(2)  The estimated net debt to equity leverage ratio is calculated as the total debt to equity leverage ratio as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, except that total debt is reduced by cash and cash equivalents.  The estimated regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio is calculated in the same manner as the net debt to equity leverage ratio, except that outstanding SBIC debentures are excluded from the net debt pursuant to an exemptive order Main Street received from the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Main Street believes presenting the net debt to equity leverage ratio is useful and appropriate supplemental disclosure for analyzing its financial position and leverage. Main Street believes presenting the regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio is useful and appropriate supplemental disclosure because Main Street, a business development company, is permitted to exclude such borrowings from its regulatory asset coverage ratio calculation pursuant to an exemptive order received from the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, the estimated net debt to equity leverage ratio and the estimated regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio are non-U.S. GAAP measures and should not be considered as replacements for the total debt to equity leverage ratio and other financial measures presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Instead, the net debt to equity leverage ratio and the regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio should be reviewed only in connection with such U.S. GAAP measures in analyzing Main Street's financial position.  In order to reconcile the estimated net debt to equity leverage ratio to the estimated total debt to equity leverage ratio in accordance with U.S. GAAP, $70 million of estimated cash and cash equivalents are subtracted from total debt to calculate the net debt to equity leverage ratio.  In order to reconcile the estimated regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio to the estimated total debt to equity leverage ratio, $70 million of estimated cash and cash equivalents and $315 million of estimated SBIC debentures outstanding are subtracted from total debt to calculate the regulatory based net debt to equity leverage ratio.
