Fifth Street Finance Corp. (Nasdaq: FSC) has amended and expanded its credit facility in a move that chief executive Leonard Tannenbaum says will keep the company levered and generate returns for its shareholders. The increased facility will give the specialty-finance company the money it needs to keep lending as its loan volume increases and the company grows.

"We have more loans to make and needed to borrow more money to do it," says Tannenbaum. Fifth Street is a specialty-finance company that invests in middle-market companies primarily in connection with private equity firms.
