NEW YORK, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — WhiteHorse Finance, Inc. (“WhiteHorse Finance” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WHF) today provided an update on portfolio activity for the first quarter of 2022 and announced the date of its upcoming conference call to discuss the results of the quarter.
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company had gross deployments of approximately $86.1 million and sales and principal repayments of approximately $47.7 million prior to the effects of transferring investments to the WHF STRS Ohio Senior Loan Fund LLC joint venture (“STRS JV”). The gross deployments of $86.1 million were comprised of $69.5 million in six new portfolio companies and $16.6 million in various add-on investments.
