(Metals/Mining(excluding Steel)) and Brookstone Holdings Corp. PIK (Specialty Retail)) valued utilizing third party pricing information without adjustment. Such valuations are based on unobservable inputs. A significant change in third party information could result in a significantly lower or higher value of such Level 3 investments.
