Apollo Credit Overview
Apollo Debt Solutions BDC
Apollo U.S. Private Credit

1. The Fund's distribution policy is to make quarterly distributions to shareholders. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. Please refer to the Fund's most recent Section 19(a) notice for an estimate of the composition of the Fund's most recent distribution, available at www.apollo.com, and the Fund's semi-annual or annual reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for additional information regarding the composition of distributions. The Fund's distributions may be affected by numerous factors, including but not limited to changes in Fund expenses including the amount of expenses waived by the Fund's Adviser, investment performance, realized and projected market returns, fluctuations in market interest rates, and other factors. There is no assurance that the Fund's distribution rate will be sustainable in the future nor are distributions guaranteed.

2.Apollo Diversified Credit Fund is an interval fund and designed for long-term investors. Unlike many closed-end investment companies, the Fund’s shares are not listed on any securities exchange and are not publicly traded. There currently is no secondary market for the shares and the Adviser does not expect that a secondary market will develop. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers for no less than 5% of the Fund’s shares outstanding at net asset value. There is no guarantee that shareholders will be able to sell all of the shares they desire in a quarterly repurchase offer.

3. The Fund offers multiple different classes of shares. An investment in any share class of the Fund represents an investment in the same assets of the Fund. However, the purchase restrictions, ongoing fees, expenses, and performance for each share class are different. For more information on the differences in share classes, refer to the applicable prospectus, which can be found at www.apollo.com.

4. Returns do not reflect maximum sales charges for Class A and Class L shares nor do returns reflect the contingent deferred sales charge for Class C shares. The maximum sales charge is 5.75% for Class A shares and 4.25% for Class L shares. Class C shareholders may be subject to a contingent deferred sales charge equal to 1.00% of the original purchase price of Class C shares redeemed during the first 365 days after their purchase. Investors may be eligible for a reduction in sales charge.

5. Represents the percentage increase/decrease in the net asset value from the prior trading day.

6. Inception date for Class A, Class C, and Class L is April 3, 2017; inception date for Class L is September 5, 2017.

This website is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation to purchase any security. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of Apollo Diversified Credit Fund (the “Fund”). This information and other important details about the Fund are contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by visiting www.apollo.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

This website must be read in conjunction with the Fund's prospectus in order to fully understand all the implications and risks of an investment in the Fund. This website is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy securities. An offering is made only by the prospectus which can be obtained by visiting gwms.apollo.com/. Prior to making an investment, investors should read the prospectus, including the “Risk Factors” section therein, which contain the risks and uncertainties that we believe are material to the Fund. The Fund offers multiple different classes of shares. An investment in any share class of the Fund represents an investment in the same assets of the Fund. However, the purchase restrictions, ongoing fees, expenses, and performance for each share class are different. For more information on the differences in share classes, refer to the applicable prospectus, which can be found at www.apollo.com.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than original cost when redeemed. Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. Performance includes reinvestment of distributions and reflects management fees and other expenses. Fund returns would have been lower had expenses not been waived during the period. Unless noted otherwise, the Fund return does not reflect the deduction of all fees, including any applicable Fund share class sales load, third-party brokerage commissions or third-party investment advisory fees paid by investors to a financial intermediary for brokerage services. If the deduction of such fees was reflected, the performance would be lower. Returns shown do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. Investing in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or all of your investment. The ability of the Fund to achieve its investment objective depends, in part, on the ability of the Adviser to allocate effectively the assets of the Fund among the various securities and investments in which the Fund invests. There can be no assurance that the actual allocations will be effective in achieving the Fund’s investment objective or delivering positive returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The most recent performance is available at www.apollo.com or by calling 888.926.2688.

The Fund is a closed-end management investment company that is operated as an interval fund. The shares have no history of public trading, nor is it intended that the shares will be listed on a public exchange at this time. No secondary market is expected to develop for the Fund's shares. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund's quarterly repurchase offers for no less than 5% and no more than 25% of the Fund's shares outstanding at net asset value. There is no guarantee that an investor will be able to sell all the shares that the investor desires to sell in the repurchase offer. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Due to these restrictions, an investor should consider an investment in the Fund to be of limited liquidity. The Fund is suitable only for investors who can bear the risks associated with the limited liquidity of the Fund and should be viewed as a long-term investment. Investing in the Fund is speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the risks associated with leverage and the risk of a substantial loss of investment. There is no guarantee that the investment strategies will work under all market conditions.

Investors in the Fund should understand that the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund will fluctuate, which may result in a loss of the principal amount invested. All investments contain risk and may lose value The Fund’s investments may be negatively affected by the broad investment environment and capital markets in which the Fund invests, including the debt market, real estate market, and/or the equity securities market. The value of the Fund’s investments will increase or decrease based on changes in the prices of the investments it holds. This will cause the value of the Fund’s shares to increase or decrease. The use of leverage by the Fund will magnify the Fund’s gains or losses. The Fund is “diversified” under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. Holdings are subject to change without notice. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program.

Investing in lower-rated securities involves special risks in addition to the risks associated with investments in investment grade securities, including a high degree of credit risk. Lower-rated securities may be regarded as predominately speculative with respect to the issuer’s continuing ability to meet principal and interest payments. Analysis of the creditworthiness of issuers/issues of lower-rated securities may be more complex than for issuers/issues of higher quality debt securities. Securities that are in the lowest rating category are considered to have extremely poor prospects of ever attaining any real investment standing, to have a current identifiable vulnerability to default and/or to be unlikely to have the capacity to pay interest and repay principal. There is a risk that issuers will not make payments, resulting in losses to the Fund. In addition, the credit quality of securities may be lowered if an issuer’s financial condition changes. Lower credit quality may lead to greater volatility in the price of a security and in shares of the Fund. Lower credit quality also may affect liquidity and make it difficult to sell the security. Default, or the market’s perception that an issuer is likely to default, could reduce the value and liquidity of securities, thereby reducing the value of your investment in Fund shares. The Adviser’s judgments about the attractiveness, value and potential appreciation of a particular sector and securities in which the Fund invests may prove to be incorrect and may not produce the desired results. Foreign investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuations and political uncertainty. The use of leverage by the Fund will magnify the Fund’s gains or losses. There is no guarantee that the Fund’s leverage strategy will be successful.

The Adviser and the Fund have entered into an expense limitation and reimbursement agreement with respect to Class F shares (the “Class F Expense Limitation Agreement”) and a separate agreement with respect to all other classes of shares (the “Multi-Class Expense Limitation Agreement” and together with the Class F Expense Limitation Agreement, the “Expense Limitation Agreements”). Pursuant to the Class F Expense Limitation Agreement, the Adviser has contractually agreed to waive its fees and/or to reimburse the Fund for expenses the Fund incurs to the extent necessary to maintain the Fund’s total annual operating expenses after fee waivers and/or reimbursements (including taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses, such as litigation or reorganization costs and organizational costs and offering costs) to the extent that they exceed, per annum, 1.50% of the Fund’s average daily net assets attributable to Class F shares. Pursuant to the Multi-Class Expense Limitation Agreement, the Adviser has contractually agreed to waive its fees and/or reimburse the Fund for expenses the Fund incurs, but only to the extent necessary to maintain the Fund’s total annual operating expenses after fee waivers and/or reimbursement (exclusive of any taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses, such as litigation or reorganization costs, but inclusive of organizational costs and offering costs) to the extent that such expenses exceed, per annum, 2.25% of Class A average daily net assets, 3.00% of Class C average daily net assets, 2.00% of Class I average daily net assets, 2.50% of Class L average daily net assets and 2.75% of Class M average daily net assets (the “Expense Limitations”). The Expense Limitation Agreements will remain in effect at least through April 30, 2024, unless and until the Fund’s Board approves its modification or termination. Per the Fund’s prospectus dated April 8, 2023, as amended August 31, 2023, the total annual expense ratio is 3.36% for Class A shares, 4.11% for Class C shares, 1.50% for Class F shares, 3.11% for Class I shares, 3.61% for Class L, and 3.86% for Class M shares. Prior to January 1, 2023, the Adviser voluntarily waived or absorbed certain of the operating expenses of the Fund since the commencement of the Fund’s operations.
