Press Release - Fifth Street Finance Corp. (FSC-NYSE)

There are more opportunities for us today than ever before! There is a void in middle market private equity sponsor backed lending of at least $7 to $10 billion in size. I think that the void will increase as middle market Mergers and Acquisitions activities continue to accelerate into next year. We will gain substantial market share as we continue to ramp our origination effort... - Leonard M. Tannenbaum (FSC) (Interview published January 1, 2010)
