BOSTON, Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- THL Credit, Inc. (Nasdaq:TCRD) ("THL Credit"), a middle market capital specialist, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared its fiscal fourth quarter 2010 dividend of $0.15 per share, payable on Jan. 28, 2011, to stockholders of record as of Dec. 31, 2010. The dividend will be paid from taxable earnings and reported to shareholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.

"In the past two quarters, our dividend announcements coincided with the release of our quarterly earnings results. We have moved up the timing of this quarter's dividend declaration to minimize the potential excise tax THL Credit may be required to pay for 2010 on any undistributed taxable income. We believe this is the most favorable approach to take on behalf of shareholders," said Terrence W. Olson, Chief Operating and Chief Financial Officer of THL Credit.
