KKR Financial Holdings LLC Announces Second Upsize Of KKR Financial CLO 2011-1, Ltd.

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KKR Financial Holdings LLC (NYSE:KFN) (the "Company") today announced that it has added $300 million to the total facility size of KKR Financial CLO 2011-1, Ltd. ("CLO 2011-1").  The increase results from an amendment to the transaction whereby CLO 2011-1 may now borrow up to an incremental $225 million to purchase senior secured corporate loans.  In connection with the upsize, the Company increased its residual interest in the transaction through the acquisition of an additional $75 million of subordinated notes issued by CLO 2011-1.

The cost of the financing remains three-month LIBOR plus 1.35%.

CLO 2011-1 initially closed on March 31, 2011 as a privately negotiated financing transaction between the Company and a third-party senior lender. The transaction was previously upsized on July 6, 2011.

"This transaction represents the continuation of a creative and successful partnership," said Craig J. Farr, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "It provides us with a highly attractive source of financing for loan collateral in an opportunistic structure that has generated approximately 15% annualized cash returns for KFN's shareholders over the last two years."
