TriplePoint Venture Growth BDC Corp. Investment Grade Rating of BBB Reaffirmed by DBRS, Inc.

Rating Highlights Strength of TriplePoint Platform and Earnings Power

TriplePoint Venture Growth BDC Corp. (NYSE: TPVG) (“TPVG” or the “Company”), the leading financing provider to venture growth stage companies backed by a select group of venture capital firms in technology and other high growth industries, today announced that DBRS, Inc. (“DBRS”) has reaffirmed the Company’s investment grade Long-Term Issuer Rating of BBB and Long-Term Senior Debt Rating of BBB. DBRS issued a statement announcing the reaffirmation of the rating and the stable trend on the rating, as well as DBRS’s underlying analysis.

“We believe DBRS’s reaffirmation of our BBB investment grade credit rating is a reflection of the strength of the TriplePoint franchise, our long track record and cycle-tested underwriting, our relationships and our earnings power,” said Christopher M. Mathieu, chief financial officer of TPVG. “Our investment grade rating supports our continued use of leverage to fund ongoing portfolio growth and our focus on delivering strong shareholder returns.”

The BBB rating from DBRS reflects, among other things, TPVG’s sound franchise strength, which benefits from access to TriplePoint Capital LLC’s (“TPC”) global venture lending platform. TPC’s strong reputation, long-standing relationships in the venture capital ecosystem and disciplined investment strategy and underwriting have been tested through several business and economic cycles. The DBRS rating also reflects, among other things, TPVG’s earnings generation capabilities, a well-laddered debt maturity profile, prudently managed leverage, an equity and warrant portfolio that has generated substantial gains over time, and exposure to venture capital-backed venture growth stage companies.
