The Funds declare a set of monthly distributions each quarter, the amounts of which are closely related to the recent average monthly net income of the respective Fund. Accordingly, monthly distribution amounts for the Funds generally vary from quarter to quarter, and shareholders of a Fund should not expect that Fund to continue to pay distributions in the same amounts shown. above. The dynamic distribution strategy offers Credit Blackstone with greater flexibility to maintain the credit quality of the portfolio in varying market conditions. In addition, the dynamic distribution strategy reduces the need to retain reserves from net investment income to support stable future distributions.

A portion of each distribution may be considered to arise from sources other than net investment income, including but not limited to short-term capital gain, long-term capital gain, or return of capital . The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of such distributions will depend on each Fund’s investment experience during its fiscal year and will be made after the end of the Fund’s fiscal year. Each Fund will send investors a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year which will set out how to report such distributions for federal income tax purposes.
