Guggenheim Partners Announces Closing of $1 Billion Collateralized Loan Obligation Transaction

Placed by Citigroup, "5180 CLO" is the Largest Collateralized Loan Obligation Issued to Date During 2011

NEW YORK – Guggenheim Partners, LLC ("Guggenheim"), a diversified financial services firm, announced the closing of a $1,043,000,000 collateralized loan obligation transaction ("5180 CLO" or the "transaction").

The CLO, named "5180 CLO LP", will invest in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of senior secured bank loans. It is the largest CLO issued in 2011 year-to-date and one of the largest arbitrage CLOs issued since the inception of the market. The transaction comes at a time when yield spreads on many of the underlying securities are near the widest levels since December 2009*.

"We believed this was an opportune time to acquire collateral and we had strong support from the investor community,” said Todd Boehly, president of Guggenheim Partners. “The 5180 CLO transaction exemplifies our commitment to utilizing innovative solutions to unlock value for investors.  We are pleased to have partnered with Citigroup and our clients on this transaction."

5180 CLO will be managed by Guggenheim Investment Management, LLC ("GIM"), an affiliate of Guggenheim Partners. Prior to this transaction, Guggenheim Partners, on behalf of GIM, was awarded "2011 CLO Manager of the Year" in the United States by Creditflux.
