May 22, 2014

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

The Information set forth in Item 2.03 of this Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

On May 19, 2014, Corporate Capital Trust, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an Omnibus Amendment (the "Amendment") to its existing Senior Secured Revolving Credit Agreement (the "Senior Secured Credit Facility") with certain lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent and its existing Guarantee and Security Agreement (the "Security Agreement") with the subsidiary guarantors party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent. On May 20, 2014, the Company entered into a new Senior Secured Term Loan Credit Facility (the "Term Loan Credit Facility" and, together with the Senior Secured Credit Facility, the "Credit Facilities") with certain lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent.

The Amendment revised the Senior Secured Credit Facility to (among other things): increase the maximum amount available for subsequent increases under its accordion feature from $600 million to $900 million; revise the limitations on the ability of the Company to incur other secured and unsecured indebtedness; and revise the requirements and powers of the Company and the Administrative Agent to retain third parties to value assets in the Company's investment portfolio. The Amendment revised the Security Agreement to (among other things) facilitate the incurrence of the Term Loan Credit Facility.

The Term Loan Credit Facility provides the Company with a $400 million senior secured term loan (the "Term Loan"). The Term Loan matures in May 2019, bears interest, at the election of the Company, at LIBOR plus 3.25% (with a LIBOR floor of 0.75%) or at an "alternate base rate" (which is the highest of a prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, or one month LIBOR plus 1.00%) plus 2.25% (with an alternate base rate floor of 1.75%) and has substantially similar terms to the Company's existing Senior Secured Credit Facility (as amended by the Amendment).

Each of the Senior Secured Credit Facility and the Term Loan Credit Facility includes an accordion feature permitting the Company to expand such facility if certain conditions are satisfied; provided, however, that the aggregate amount of the Senior Secured Credit Facility is capped at $900 million and the aggregate amount of the Term Loan Credit Facility is limited to the amount as determined from time to time which would not cause the covered debt amount (i.e., the Company's debt under the Credit Facilities, other permitted debt and certain other unsecured debt) to exceed the borrowing/collateral base.

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. serves as administrative agent under each of the Credit Facilities, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Mizuho Bank, Ltd., HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and Barclays Bank PLC served as co-syndication agents, joint bookrunners and joint lead arrangers under the Term Loan Credit Facility and Greensledge Capital Markets LLC served as co-syndication agent under the Term Loan Credit Facility.

Borrowings under the Credit Facilities are subject to, among other things, a minimum borrowing/collateral base. All portfolio investments directly held by the Company, certain equity interests owned by the Company, and certain accounts of the Company are pledged as collateral under the Credit Facilities. The Credit Facilities require the Company to, among other things (i) make representations and warranties regarding the collateral as well the Company's business and operations, (ii) agree to certain indemnification obligations, and (iii) agree to comply with various affirmative and negative covenants. The documents for each of the Credit Facilities also include default provisions such as (among others) (i) the failure to make timely payments under the Credit Facilities, (ii) the occurrence of a change in control, and (iii) the failure by the Company to materially perform under the operative agreements governing the Credit Facilities, which, if not complied with, could accelerate repayment under the Credit Facilities, thereby materially and adversely affecting the Company's liquidity, financial condition and results of operations.

The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

The foregoing description of the Term Loan Credit Facility and the Term Loan do not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Term Loan Credit Facility attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2.
