The $35 million commitment comes from a new lender, bringing the total number of lenders to 17. The facility has an investment grade Moody’s rating of Aa3.

“The addition of the new lender demonstrates a continued broad interest in the Facility within the lender community,” said Brian Oswald, chief financial officer of Prospect. “We continue to identify potential new participants for the facility and look forward to increasing the commitments to our $650 million target.”
