The Notes will mature on April 30, 2028, and may be redeemed in whole or in part at any time or from time to time at Fifth Street's option on or after April 30, 2018. The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 6.125% per year payable quarterly on January 30, April 30, July 30 and October 30, of each year, beginning April 30, 2013. Fifth Street has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $11.25 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes to cover over-allotments, if any.

The closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and the Notes are expected to be delivered on or about April 4, 2013. Fifth Street intends to apply to list the Notes on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the trading symbol "FSCFL," and if the application is approved, expects trading in the Notes to begin within 30 days from the original issue date.
