CNL Strategic Capital 

Risk Factors

An investment in CNL Strategic Capital, LLC is considered speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the loss of all or a substantial amount of investment. CNL Strategic Capital is not a short-term investment and investors are expected to meet the minimum financial suitability standards which include, $250,000 net worth or $70,000 net worth and $70,000 annual gross income (excluding home furnishings and personal automobiles). Some states and broker-dealers may have additional standards. See the Suitability Standards section of the prospectus for complete details. 

CNL Strategic Capital is a recently formed entity that has limited operating history. It may be unable to successfully implement its business and acquisition strategies or meet its investment objectives. This will initially be a blind pool offering, and investors will not have the opportunity to evaluate businesses prior to acquisition.

Investors should not rely on the past performance of the managers and their respective affiliates as an indication of future success. CNL Strategic Capital is a different investment vehicle with fees and risks dissimilar to the managers other funds.

CNL Strategic Capital’s managers, and their respective affiliates, face conflicts of interest, including those that result from compensation arrangements and allocations of business opportunities.

This is a “best efforts” offering and there is no assurance that CNL Strategic Capital will raise substantial funds. If CNL Strategic Capital is unable to raise substantial funds, it will be limited in the number of businesses it acquires, which reduces diversification and increases the potential for volatility. 

Co-investing with other investment groups may increase the risk that third parties may make decisions with which CNL Strategic Capital does not fully agree. In certain cases, CNL Strategic Capital will invest alongside the sub-manager’s affiliates or other clients. CNL Strategic Capital will not purchase these businesses unless a majority of the independent directors determines the transaction is fair and reasonable.

Distributions are at the discretion of the board of directors and are not guaranteed in frequency or amount. Initially, distributions will be paid from net investment income, fee waivers or deferrals, offering proceeds, borrowings or expense support. CNL Strategic Capital is obligated to repay expense support over several years, which will reduce future cash available for distributions and be dilutive to future shareholders. 

Subject to certain exceptions, CNL Strategic Capital may use leverage in an amount not to exceed 50 percent of its gross assets, subjecting it to inflation and interest rate risk. Leverage can magnify the potential for loss or gain, which can impact an investment’s volatility and returns.

Asset valuations will be estimates of fair value and do not represent the amount an investor would receive now or at any time in the future. CNL Strategic Capital’s valuation is inherently subjective, and the NAV may not accurately reflect the actual price at which its assets could be liquidated. The realized value of shares will be dependent upon market conditions that are beyond anyone’s ability to control or predict.

An investment in CNL Strategic Capital is illiquid and no secondary market is expected to develop. Shares sold in this offering will not be listed on an exchange or quoted through a quotation system for the foreseeable future, if ever. If investors are able to sell their shares, they will likely receive less than their purchase price.

Beginning no later than March 2019, and at the discretion of the board of directors, CNL Strategic Capital intends to commence a quarterly share repurchase program. If implemented, there will be numerous restrictions that limit an investor’s ability to sell their shares. The share repurchase program may be suspended, modified or terminated by the board of directors at any time.

An investment in CNL Strategic Capital does not provide investors with a direct ownership interest in the underlying businesses.
