    (Amounts provided are unaudited and subject to change)

                                            (in millions except per share data)

    Estimated Fair Value of Investments:    $1,309.9
    Cash and Cash Equivalents:              $298.3

    Net Asset Value per Share: (2)          $14.91

    As of the end of November 2012, the majority of the net assets of the 
company were
invested in the equity tranches of U.S. CLOs. Investments are also held in U.S.
secured loans, equity tranches of European CLOs, asset management businesses, 
real estate
funds, and CLO mezzanine tranches, with the remainder of the net assets held in
cash less
certain net liabilities.

    The geographical allocation of TFG's CLO equity, direct loan, and real 
estate fund
investments was weighted primarily towards the United States, at 90.4% of such 
assets as
of the end of November 2012. European exposure was approximately 9.4% and Asia 
approximately 0.2%. TFG's ownership of asset managers is excluded from the 
allocation above as such managers are global in nature.
