Prospect Capital Provides Incremental $37.5 Million Floating Rate Secured Loan to Capstone Logistics, a Jordan Company Investment

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2015) - Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC) ("Prospect") announced today that Prospect has provided Capstone Logistics, LLC ("Capstone"), an existing portfolio company of Prospect, with an incremental $37.5 million of floating rate secured term debt to support Capstone's acquisition of Pinnacle Workforce Logistics LLC ("Pinnacle"). Prospect holds Capstone's entire senior second lien facility, which totals approximately $100 million.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Capstone services over 50 customers at more than 240 facilities across 45 states. Capstone is an outsourced supply-chain-solutions provider offering freight handling services, supply-chain consulting, and management of distribution centers. Capstone's workforce solutions allow distribution center operators to outsource non-core labor-intensive elements of their supply chains. The Jordan Company, L.P. purchased Capstone in August 2014.

Pinnacle provides fully managed workforce solutions with a North American platform of over 80 client-owned sites across multiple end markets. Services include freight handling, order selection, warehouse maintenance, and co-packing and kitting. Capstone and Pinnacle together expect to share complementary end markets and services, offer a strengthened platform to better serve customers, and experience immediate cost synergies.

"Prospect is pleased to provide financing to support the combination of two supply chain logistics market leaders under the capable ownership of a strong financial sponsor," said Jason Wilson, a Managing Director of Prospect Capital Management.

Prospect has closed approximately $2.0 billion of new originations in the twelve months ended March 31, 2015.
