("J&J" or the "Company) upon the sale of the Company to a strategic acquiror.

Over the course of Main Street's investment, J&J invested heavily in its fleet assets to further strengthen the Company's best-in-class service reputation and leading market share position within the rapidly growing Nashville and Middle Tennessee markets. On a cumulative basis since Main Street's investment in J&J in October 2019, Main Street realized an annual internal rate of return of 59.2% and a 2.5x times money invested return on its equity investment and an annual internal rate of return of 31.6% and a 1.6x times money invested return including both Main Street's debt and equity investments.
