NewStar Financial Inc., GSO Capital Partners and Franklin Square Capital Partners Form Strategic Relationship

NewStar Financial Inc., GSO Capital Partners (GSO) and Franklin Square Capital Partners announced that they have formed a strategic relationship to help expand the company’s lower middle market lending and asset management activities. The relationship includes an investment of long-term capital from funds managed by Franklin Square Capital Partners (which are sub-advised by GSO) to help fund the company’s growth strategy and expand the scale of its lower middle market lending activity. Under the terms of the investment, funds managed by Franklin Square have committed to purchase $300 million of 10-year subordinated notes and warrants exercisable into 12 million shares of common stock at an exercise price of $12.62. NewStar expects to use the proceeds from the transaction to enhance its ability to originate and lead transactions across all of its business lines and, as a result, significantly increase origination volume and facilitate asset growth. The strategic relationship between the firms is anticipated to contribute materially to NewStar’s growth, while extending GSO and Franklin Square’s access to the lower middle market. It also allows Franklin Square’s funds and GSO to offer their portfolio companies other financing solutions such as equipment leases and asset-based loans from a market leader. In addition to the investment, the scope of the relationship is expected to result in cross-referral and co-lending opportunities, which are anticipated to provide NewStar with access to new channels of origination, while enabling the Company to provide larger capital commitments and a more complete set of financing options to its clients through its relationship with GSO and Franklin Square.
