The Senior Secured Loan Program (SSLP), jointly managed by an affiliate of Ares Capital Corporation and an affiliate of GE Capital, announced today that it closed five financing commitments totaling $625 million, including two refinancing transactions of existing portfolio companies, during the third quarter of 2012.
