BOSTON, April 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- THL Credit Senior Loan Strategies LLC ("THL Credit SLS") today announced that it has closed on a $467 million collateralized loan obligation ("CLO") led by Citi.

(Nasdaq:TCRD).

"We are delighted with the continued growth of our business and the synergies being realized across our credit platform," said James K.

"We are pleased that Citi recognizes the strength of our CLO capabilities and track record," said Michael A. Herzig, Managing Director of THL Credit SLS. "They have been an exceptional partner throughout this process and we look forward to working with them again in the future."

Fellows, Brian W. Good, Robert J. Hickey and Michael A. Herzig, has worked together for more than 20 years.
