BOSTON, June 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- THL Credit Advisors LLC ("THL Credit" or the "Company") today announced that it has closed on a $511 million collateralized loan obligation ("CLO"), led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch ("BAML"). THL Credit has now closed twelve 2.0 CLOs totaling $6.5 billion in issuance since December 2012.

"Our CLO strategy continues to perform well and plays a critical role in our platform," said Sam Tillinghast, Co-CEO of THL Credit. "We're very proud of the work Jim Fellows and Brian Good have accomplished leading our Tradable Credit business, which has contributed significantly in our recent growth to approximately $10 billion of assets."
