NewStar Financial, Inc. Completes $496 Million Term Debt Securitization Known as NewStar Commercial Loan Funding 2015-1

NewStar Financial Inc. announced that it completed a $496 million term debt securitization known as NewStar Commercial Loan Funding 2015-1. All floating rate classes of notes were priced at par and the transaction size was increased from $400 million to $496 million to satisfy demand driven by broad participation among institutional investors. NewStar Commercial Loan Funding 2015-1 was NewStar's eleventh securitization since inception and part of a programmatic approach to the company's funding strategy. The notes were backed by a diversified portfolio of commercial loans originated by NewStar. The transaction was executed through a private offering via Rule 144A and Regulation S. Five classes of notes rated Aaa through Baa3 by Moody's and two classes rated AAA by Fitch totaling approximately $410 million were placed. NewStar retained the subordinated interests, which represented approximately 17% of the capital structure, or about $86 million. NewStar Financial will serve as collateral manager of the CLO, which has a 4.1 year reinvestment period. The notes were rated by Moody's Investors Service and the A-1 and A-2 classes were also rated by Fitch. All notes were priced to yield an initial weighted average of approximately LIBOR plus 2.40%.
