NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHorse Finance, Inc. ("WhiteHorse Finance" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:WHF) today issued the following statement regarding a recent block trade transaction by funds affiliated with H.I.G. Capital (the "Bayside Funds"):  

"On August 29, 2018, the Bayside Funds agreed to sell in a block trade an aggregate of 972,622 shares of common stock at a price of $13.88 per share to a large institutional investor.  WhiteHorse Finance expects the Bayside Funds, who collectively have held a majority position in WhiteHorse Finance since its IPO in 2012, to gradually reduce their ownership positions in the Company. Following the block trade, those positions comprise 52.5 percent of all shares outstanding in the Company.

Due to their control of the general partner of each of the Bayside Funds, Sami Mnaymneh and Anthony Tamer may each be deemed to be beneficial owners of common stock in WhiteHorse Finance. Messrs. Mnaymneh and Tamer disclaim beneficial ownership of shares of common stock held by the Bayside Funds (except to the extent of their pecuniary interest therein), and have not sold WHF common stock personally owned."
