Ares Capital Corporation Highlights Select Financing Commitments Closed During The Second Quarter

Ares Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: ARCC) announced today that it is providing additional details on three of its financing commitments closed during the second quarter of 2013, which were included in this morning’s previously released earnings announcement. Financing commitments by Ares Capital in the second quarter totaled more than $1.2 billion.

“During the second quarter, we found more compelling investment opportunities as market activity rebounded from depressed first quarter levels,” said Kipp deVeer, President of Ares Capital. “We continue to benefit from our deep relationships within the financial sponsor community as well as our incumbent relationships and the growth capital needs within our own portfolio.”

Below is a description of three select transactions closed during the second quarter.

Ares Capital served as administrative agent, collateral agent and lead arranger in a $175 million senior secured credit facility to support the acquisition of nCircle Network Security Inc. by Tripwire, Inc., a portfolio company of Thoma Bravo, LLC. Through this transaction, Ares Capital increased its commitment to Tripwire by $85 million. Tripwire is a leading provider of IT compliance and security software and nCircle is a leading provider of IT vulnerability assessment software solutions.
