SAN FRANCISCO, July 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KKR Financial Holdings LLC (NYSE: KFN) ("KFN" or the "Company") today announced that it has upsized KKR Financial CLO 2011-1, Ltd. ("CLO 2011-1") to $600 million from $400 million. The increase in the transaction size is a result of an amendment to the transaction whereby CLO 2011-1 is now able to borrow up to $450 million representing an increase of $150 million from what was previously available under the securitization. In addition, the Company increased its residual interest in the transaction from $100 million to $150 million through the acquisition of an additional $50 million of subordinated notes issued by CLO 2011-1. The cost of the financing remains three-month LIBOR plus 1.35%.

Concurrent with the amendment to increase the size of CLO 2011-1, the transaction was amended to reduce the par value ratio test (failure of which would cause up to 50% of all interest collections otherwise payable to the Company to be diverted until this test was brought into compliance) for CLO 2011-1 from 133.33% to 120%.

CLO 2011-1 initially closed on March 31, 2011 as a privately negotiated financing transaction between the Company and a third-party senior lender.

The Company's Chief Executive Officer, William C. Sonneborn, stated, "We are very pleased that we were able to upsize CLO 2011-1 as it represents a uniquely structured financing transaction through which we can continue to grow our senior secured loan portfolio at attractive terms with a partner."
