Symphony Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund Completes Treasury Offering

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Symphony Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund (TSX:SSF.UN) is pleased to announce the completion of its treasury offering of approximately 12.5 million Class A and Class U units for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $130.6 million. The Class A units will continue to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the existing symbol SSF.UN. The Class U units are convertible into Class A units. The Class A and Class U units were offered at a price of $10.45 and US$10.45, respectively. The offering price of the units was determined so as to be non-dilutive to existing unitholders as of the pricing date.

The Fund's investment objectives are to (i) provide monthly tax-advantaged distributions consisting primarily of returns of capital; and (ii) preserve capital, in each case, through exposure, pursuant to a forward agreement, to an actively managed, diversified portfolio consisting primarily of floating rate senior corporate debt instruments, including senior secured loans and other senior debt obligations of North American non-investment grade corporate borrowers. The Fund's distribution target is $0.05833 per Class A unit per month and US$0.05833 per Class U unit per month, consisting primarily of tax-efficient returns of capital. The Manager hedges substantially all of the value of the portfolio attributable to the Class A units to the Canadian dollar. The value of the portfolio attributable to the Class U units is unhedged.

Symphony Asset Management LLC acts as sub-advisor for SSF Trust in connection with the selection, purchase and sale of senior loans and other assets of the portfolio. Backed by an institutional-calibre integrated credit platform and supported by a 19-member team of experienced credit investment professionals, Symphony manages approximately US$8.5 billion in senior loans and has approximately US$11.8 billion in total assets under management, as at December 31, 2012. Funds sub-advised by Symphony have achieved the top one, three, five and ten-year performance rankings by Lipper as at November 30, 2012 for the senior loan asset class.

Symphony is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nuveen Investments Inc. As at September 30, 2012, Nuveen and its affiliates had a total of approximately US$220 billion of assets under management, and Nuveen was the leading sponsor of US-listed closed-end funds according to Morningstar Fundamental Data, as measured by the number of funds (more than 115) and the amount of fund assets under management (approximately US$55 billion).
