"We are pleased with our fourth quarter investment activity," said James K. Hunt, chief executive officer of THL Credit. "While prepayment activity with associated premiums was higher than expected, our originations remained strong amid an increasingly competitive environment in the middle market. During 2012, we completed 19 new investment transactions and made seven follow-on investments totaling $277 million in debt and equity capital, excluding the broadly syndicated investments noted above. We have an active pipeline today that includes an increasing number of unsponsored opportunities. While we continue to maintain our cautious view on the economy, we are optimistic that a gradually improving economic backdrop will continue to lead to an increasingly active first half of 2013."
