    results. Core Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure. Core Earnings is the net increase (decrease) in stockholders' equity resulting from operations less professional fees and other costs related to the American Capital Acquisition, expense reimbursement from Ares Capital Management LLC (the "Ares Reimbursement"), net realized and unrealized gains and losses, any capital gains incentive fees attributable to such net realized and unrealized gains and losses and any income taxes related to such net realized gains and losses. Net increase (decrease) in stockholders' equity is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Ares Capital believes that Core Earnings provides useful information to investors regarding financial performance because it is one method Ares Capital uses to measure its financial condition and results of operations. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. See Note 16 to Ares Capital's consolidated financial statements included in the annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 for information regarding the American Capital Acquisition. See Note 13 to Ares Capital's consolidated financial statements included in the annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 for information regarding the Ares Reimbursement.

  20. The performance, awards/ratings noted herein relate only to selected funds/strategies and may not be representative of any given client's experience and should not be viewed as indicative of Ares' past performance or its funds' future performance. All investments involve risk, including loss of principal.
  21. ARCC received the 2021 All-America Executive Team Most Honored designation alongside 136 other companies. Various Ares personnel received first place awards

as part of the "Brokers, Asset Managers & Exchanges" category for: Investor Relations, CEO, CFO, Investor Day and Communication of Strategy and Risk Management amid COVID-19.

Any comparisons herein of the investment performance of ARCC to an index are qualified as follows: (i) the volatility of such index will likely be materially different from that of ARCC; (ii) such index will, in many cases, employ different investment guidelines and criteria than ARCC and, therefore, holdings in ARCC will differ significantly from holdings of the securities that comprise such index and ARCC may invest in different asset classes altogether from the illustrative index, which may materially impact the performance of ARCC relative to the index; and (iii) the performance of such index is disclosed solely to allow for comparison on ARCC's performance to that of a well known index.
