Onex Credit Partners Files Final Prospectus for OCP Senior Credit Fund

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2010) -


All amounts in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Onex Credit Partners, LLC ("OCP") announces the filing of the final prospectus for the initial public offering of units (the "Units") of OCP Senior Credit Fund (the "Fund") for a total offering size of up to $300 million. The offering is scheduled to close on November 19, 2010. The Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has conditionally approved the listing of the Units under the symbol OSL.UN subject to the fulfillment of the TSX requirements.

The Fund will be managed by OCP, the exclusive credit investing platform of Onex Corporation (TSX:OCX), a leading Canadian investment firm with a long established track record and a disciplined, value-oriented approach to investing.

The Fund will seek to achieve the following objectives: (i) provide holders of units with attractive, quarterly, tax-advantaged distributions, initially targeted to be $0.125 per quarter representing an annual yield of 5% based on the original issue price of $10.00 per Unit; (ii) preserve capital; and (iii) generate enhanced returns through increasing cash flow to the portfolio as interest rates rise. It is expected that quarterly distributions received by Unitholders will consist primarily of returns of capital for tax purposes.
