FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Crestline Specialty Lending ("CSL"), a part of the opportunistic investment group of Crestline Investors, Inc.

"CSL was a great partner throughout the transaction process and their flexible credit facility will help Ntiva continue to capitalize on near-term growth opportunities."
