Prospect Provides USG $48.5MM Facility

Prospect provided USG Intermediate with $48.5 million of first lien, floating-rate debt commitments comprised of term loans and a revolving credit facility.

Founded over a decade ago, USG is an entrepreneur-owned direct marketing company with an active base of longstanding customers. USG utilizes a variety of direct mail, print media, digital media, television direct response, and telemarketing channels to reach new and existing consumers interested in purchasing high-value collectible items.

“Prospect’s loan to USG exemplifies Prospect’s direct lending business that provides financing solutions to family-owned companies,” said David Moszer, managing director of Prospect Capital Management. “Prospect worked with USG to develop a loan package that provides USG with flexibility to expand its business operations without raising dilutive equity capital.”

Prospect closed nearly $3.2 billion of new originations during calendar year 2014.
