Fifth Street Finance Corp. and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. announced that they have co-invested, along with other Fifth Street investment vehicles, in a senior secured financing facility to support the refinancing of Idera, Inc. by TA Associates. Idera is a leading provider of infrastructure software focused on server and database management including performance monitoring, data protections, compliance and security. Fifth Street Management LLC, FSC's and FSFR's investment adviser, served as Administrative Agent for the transaction.

The Idera financing represents the Fifth Street platform's fifth transaction with TA Associates, one of the largest and most experienced global growth private equity firms. TA Associates leads buyouts and minority recapitalizations of profitable growth companies in the technology, financial services, business services, healthcare and consumer industries.

El-Nazer, a Director at TA Associates, adding, "The team was able to quickly commit to the structure we envisioned today, while intuitively grasping Idera's organic growth and acquisitions strategy for the future."

"We look forward to continuing to support TA Associates and Idera as they execute their growth strategy and identify opportunities to strengthen the company's position as an ongoing leader in the infrastructure software market," noted Ivelin M. Dimitrov, Chief Investment Officer of FSC and Chief Executive Officer of FSFR.
