Ares Capital acquires diversified middle market loan portfolio for USD319m

Ares Capital has acquired a diversified middle-market corporate loan portfolio managed by a global banking institution for approximately USD319m.

The portfolio is primarily comprised of first lien senior loans, and to a lesser extent, second lien loans and small equity co-investments.
 
The portfolio is comprised of 32 investments in 23 portfolio companies in industries that are generally similar to those in Ares Capital’s portfolio.
 
“As the banking industry faces increasing regulatory restrictions, we are seeing more opportunities such as this to purchase high-quality, middle-market loan portfolios from financial institutions where we see potential to create value,” says Michael Arougheti, chief executive officer of Ares Capital. “We were already familiar with many of the companies represented in this portfolio and, in addition to the financial merits of the transaction, we believe we can develop mutually beneficial long-term relationships with many of these companies and their sponsors.”
