The Senior Secured Loan Fund, jointly managed by affiliates of GE Capital and Ares Capital Corporation, announced today the closing of a $53 million senior secured loan during the first quarter to support RLJ Equity Partners’ acquisition of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company, Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of industrial vinegar in North America. GE Capital and Ares Capital Corporation served as administrative agents, joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners. In addition, GE Capital, through GE Antares, provided a $5 million revolving credit facility in support of the transaction.

This facility represents the first Senior Secured Loan Fund transaction completed with Ares Capital Corporation as a partner. The Fund provided RLJ Equity Partners with a single debt tranche solution, which aided in negotiations and allowed the transaction to meet an aggressive timeline to closing.

“The unique characteristics of the Senior Secured Loan Fund product, as well as the executives who facilitated the transaction, were instrumental in expeditiously closing our acquisition of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company,” Daphne Dufresne, Managing Director of RLJ Equity Partners stated. “We look forward to working with them and using this product in future transactions.”

“GE Capital has been a long-standing supporter of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company under previous private equity ownerships. Their continued role, along with Ares Capital Corporation, as our lender reinforces the rich history and stability of the Fleischmann’s Vinegar franchise,” says Kenneth Simril, CEO of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company.

Headquartered in Cerritos, CA, Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company, Inc. offers a full line of standard, specialty vinegars, and cooking wines for industrial use as well as retail lines.
