Portfolio Update


Fair Oaks Income Limited (the "Company") is pleased to announce that FOMC II LP ("Master Fund II") has made two investments which will result in the C share proceeds being fully invested. A further announcement will be made shortly with details of the conversion of the C Shares into 2017 Shares.


Master Fund II has entered into binding contracts to acquire, in the primary market, $30 million notional of equity notes, representing 78% of the total equity of Elevation CLO 2017-6, a new CLO backed by a portfolio of US broadly syndicated, secured loans.


The manager of this CLO's portfolio is 325 Fillmore, an affiliate of ArrowMark Partners ("ArrowMark"). Arrowmark, formerly known as Arrowpoint, is a 100% employee owned investment manager focused on credit-oriented fixed income and selected equity strategies with over $12bn in assets under management. ArrowMark manages seven CLOs.


This CLO's current target portfolio has a principal value of $400 million across an expected 187 bank loan issuers, with an expected weighted average exposure per issuer of approximately 0.6%. The potential total return for this investment as estimated by the general partner of Master Fund II is between 15% and 17% per annum (see Note 1).


In addition, the Company is pleased to announce that Master Fund II has also entered into binding contracts to invest $17 million in a newly established co-investment vehicle which will acquire, in the secondary market, majority equity positions in three CLOs managed by Mariner Investment Group ("Mariner"). Mariner is a subsidiary of Orix Corporation, a global financial services firm with over $300 billion in assets under management. The potential total return for this investment as estimated by the general partner of Master Fund II is between 15% and 16% per annum (see Note 1).


The acquisition vehicle for the Mariner CLOs will be managed by the general partner of Master Fund II, without any additional fees being charged to Master Fund II. Income and principal received by the acquisition vehicle will be distributed to Master Fund II for distribution or reinvestment in accordance with its terms.


Both investments ‎will be funded by a final draw-down from the C Share pool, following which the C Shares will have an interest in Master Fund II and c.$2 million of cash. The Investment Adviser's strong access to primary and secondary opportunities has provided Master Fund II with a transaction pipeline which has resulted in an effective deployment of capital ahead of original expectations, and which the General Partner believes continues to offer attractive investment opportunities for the Master Fund.
