Here are five new credit updates published by the BDC Credit Reporter in just the last two days which involve public BDCs.
Four different public BDCs are involved and the aggregate amount of exposure is over $60mn at cost.
Unfortunately, the news in every case is negative and is likely to get worse in the future.
