Specialized direct lending and credit management capabilities for middle market companies and investors in the credit markets

NewStar Financial, Inc. is an internally-managed commercial finance company with more than $6 billion of assets managed across two complementary business lines — middle market direct lending and asset management. The Company's direct lending activities are focused on meeting the complex financing needs of companies and private investors in the middle markets through three specialized lending groups that offer a range of flexible debt financing options to fund working capital, growth strategies, acquisitions and recapitalizations, as well as, equipment purchases. Credit investments are originated directly though teams of experienced, senior bankers and marketing officers organized around key industry and market segments. NewStar also has a strategic relationship with Blackstone's GSO Capital, which includes a long-term investment in the Company from funds managed by GSO, as well as direct investment in managed funds and co-lending in transactions originated by both firms.

Through its asset management platforms, NewStar offers a range of investment products employing credit-oriented strategies focused on both middle market loans and liquid, tradeable credit. The Company manages approximately $1 billion of assets in a series of private credit funds that co-invest in middle market loans originated through its established leveraged finance lending platform and its relationship with GSO Capital. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, NewStar Capital, the Company also has more than $2 billion of assets managed across a series of CLOs that invest primarily in broadly syndicated loans, as well as other sponsored funds and managed accounts that invest across various asset classes, including broadly syndicated loans, high yield bonds and stressed/distressed credit.
