We are excited to announce transformative merger agreements with two funds managed by Apollo which, if both mergers successfully close, will grow MFIC’s net assets by over 40% and will enhance economics for our shareholders. We closed our first CLO transaction which priced favorably compared to other recent middle market CLO’s, a reflection of the strong quality of our corporate lending assets.” Mr. Powell continued, “We also reported a good quarter including strong net investment income, an increase in net asset value, and continued stable credit quality. It is clear from these results that we are reaping the rewards of our multi-year focus on investing in true first lien middle market loans sourced by MidCap Financial, a leading middle market lender managed by Apollo.”

Mr. Gregory W. Hunt, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, said, “We are pleased to announce MFIC’s first CLO transaction which closed in early November which enhances our liquidity position with long-term financing and diversifies our sources of funding at an attractive all-in cost.
