NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHorse Finance, Inc. ("WhiteHorse Finance" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: WHF) today announced that it has amended its existing credit facility with JP Morgan Chase ("JP Morgan"). The amendment allows for an increased advance rate, a temporary reduction in the minimum funding amount, and a decrease in the concentration of second lien loans.

The Company believes this amendment positions the Company to achieve its long-term leverage target and portfolio composition goals.
