Owl Rock Wins LPL Financial 2017
Innovator of the Year Award
1Pursuant to the terms of the ORCC II prospectus, the share price is subject to change based on fluctuations in NAV (Net Asset Value). Please refer to the current ORCC II prospectus as amended and supplemented for disclosures relating to the share price (referred to as the “public offering price” in the prospectus).
3The distribution rate shown is calculated by annualizing the weekly declared distributions per share and dividing by the most recently published public offering price as of September 30, 2017. The annualized
distribution rate shown may be rounded. The payment of future distributions is subject to the discretion of ORCC II’s board of directors and applicable legal restrictions, therefore there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future distributions. Distributions are not guaranteed. Distributions have been funded and may continue to be funded by the reimbursement of certain expenses that are subject
to repayment to the Adviser of ORCC II. Such waivers and reimbursements by the Adviser may not continue in the future. If the Adviser had not agreed to reimburse certain expenses for ORCC II, 100% of the distributions paid thus far would have come from offering proceeds. The repayment of amounts owed to the Adviser will reduce the future distributions to which investors would otherwise be entitled.
Owl Rock Capital Corporation II (“ORCC II”) is a private credit strategy structured as a non-traded business development company (BDC)1 that offers the potential to generate income by originating loans to, and making debt investments in, U.S. middle market companies. ORCC II seeks to leverage Owl Rock’s significant institutional backing and deep relationships in the private equity market to generate investment opportunities that have attractive risk-adjusted return potential.
Generate current income, and to a lesser extent, capital appreciation by targeting investment opportunities with favorable risk-adjusted returns.
There is no guarantee that these investment objectives will be achieved.
ORCC II’s investment strategy focuses primarily on originating and making loans to, and making debt and equity investments in, U.S. middle market companies. Capital will be used by portfolio companies to support growth, acquisitions, market or product expansion, refinancings and/or recapitalizations.
- ORCC II will invest in senior secured or unsecured loans, subordinated loans or mezzanine loans and, to a lesser extent, equity-related securities and warrants.
- ORCC II uses the term “middle market companies” to generally mean companies with earnings before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, or “EBITDA,” between $10 million and $250 million annually and/or annual revenue of $50 million to $2.5 billion at the time of investment.
- ORCC II may on occasion invest in smaller or larger companies if an attractive opportunity presents itself, especially when there are dislocations in the capital markets, including the high yield and large syndicated loan markets. Its target credit investments will typically have maturities between three and ten years.
Once ORCC II raises sufficient capital, they expect that investments will typically range in size between $10 million and $125 million, although the investment size will vary with the size of their capital base. Prior to raising sufficient capital, ORCC II may make a greater number of investments in syndicated loan opportunities than they otherwise would expect to in the future.

Business development companies (BDCs) were created by Congress in 1980 to encourage the flow of capital to small- and medium-size American companies to help them grow. They provide investors with exposure to investments in predominantly private companies, which are typically difficult to access.
The payment of future distributions is subject to the discretion of ORCC II’s board of directors and applicable legal restrictions, therefore there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future distributions. Distributions are not guaranteed. Distributions have been funded and may continue to be funded by the reimbursement of certain expenses that are subject to repayment to the Adviser of ORCC II. Such waivers and reimbursements by the Adviser may not continue in the future. If the Adviser had not agreed to reimburse certain expenses for ORCC II, 100% of the distributions paid thus far would have come from offering proceeds. The repayment of amounts owed to the Adviser will reduce the future distributions to which investors would otherwise be entitled.

Risk Factors and Other Important Information:
An investment in Owl Rock Capital Corporation II (“ORCC II” or “our”, “we” or “us”) is speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the risk of a substantial loss of investment. The following are some of the risks involved in an investment in our common shares; however, an investor should carefully consider the information found in the “Risk Factors” section of our prospectus before deciding to invest:
- You should not expect to be able to sell your shares regardless of how we perform.
- We may offer to repurchase a limited number of shares, but if we do, it is likely you will receive less than your initial purchase price. While ORCC II intends to implement a share repurchase program and conduct quarterly tender offers, any such share repurchase program may be amended, suspended or terminated at any time in the discretion of our board of directors. Any repurchases will be limited to the lesser of (a) 2.5% of the weighted average number of shares of our common stock outstanding in the prior 12-month period and (b) the number of shares we can repurchase with the proceeds we receive from the sale of shares of our common stock under our distribution reinvestment plan.
- We do not intend to list our shares on any securities exchange for what may be a significant time and we do not expect a secondary market in the shares to develop.
- You should consider that you may not have access to the money you invest for an indefinite period of time.
- Because you will be unable to sell your shares, you will be unable to reduce your exposure in any market downturn.
- An investment in our shares is not suitable for you if you need access to the money you invest.
- The payment of fees and expenses will reduce the funds available for investment, the net income generated, the funds available for distribution and the book value of the common shares. Please see ORCC II’s prospectus for details on its fees and expenses.
- We may fund distributions from sources other than earnings, including unlimited amounts of offering proceeds and borrowings, which may affect future distributions, constitute a return of capital and reduce the amount of capital available to us for investment. Any capital returned to stockholders through distributions will be distributed after payment of fees and expenses. We have not established any limit on the extent to which we may use offering proceeds to fund distributions.
- Our distributions to stockholders may be funded in significant part from the reimbursement of certain expenses, including through the waiver of certain investment advisory fees, that will be subject to repayment to Owl Rock Capital Advisors LLC (the “Adviser”). Significant portions of these distributions may not be based on our investment performance and such waivers and reimbursements may not continue in the future. The repayment of any amounts owed will reduce the future distributions to which you would otherwise be entitled.
- The Adviser and its affiliates face a number of conflicts with respect to us. Currently, the Adviser and its affiliates manage other investment entities, including Owl Rock Capital Corporation, and are not prohibited from raising money for and managing future investment entities that make the same types of investments as those we target. As a result, the time and resources that the Adviser devotes to us may be diverted. In addition, we may compete with any such investment entity also managed by the Adviser for the same investors and investment opportunities. Furthermore, the Adviser may face conflicts of interest with respect to services it may perform for companies in which we invest as it may receive fees in connection with such services that may not be shared with us.
- The incentive fee payable by us to the Adviser may create an incentive for the Adviser to make investments on our behalf that are risky or more speculative than would be the case in the absence of such compensation arrangements. We may be obligated to pay the Adviser incentive fees even if we incur a net loss due to a decline in the value of our portfolio and even if our earned interest income is not payable in cash.
- ORCC II intends to invest in securities that are rated below investment grade by rating agencies or that would be rated below investment grade if they were rated.
- Investing in privately held middle market companies presents certain challenges, including the lack of available information about these companies.
