The Revolving Credit Facility is guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company in existence as of the closing date of the Revolving Credit Facility, and will be guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company that are formed or acquired by the Company in the future (collectively, the “Guarantors”). Proceeds of the Revolving Credit Facility may be used for general corporate purposes, including the funding of portfolio investments.
The maximum principal amount of the Revolving Credit Facility is $1.855 billion, subject to availability under the borrowing base, which is based on the Company’s portfolio investments and other outstanding indebtedness.

Unsecured Notes
2023 Notes
On December 21, 2017, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement governing the issuance of $150 million in aggregate principal amount of unsecured notes (the “2023 Notes”) to institutional investors in a private placement. The issuance of $138.5 million of the 2023 Notes occurred on December 21, 2017, and $11.5 million of the 2023 Notes were issued in January 2018. The 2023 Notes had a fixed interest rate of 4.75% and were due on June 21, 2023. Interest on the 2023 Notes was due and ranked semiannually. This interest rate was subject to increase (up to a maximum interest rate of 5.50%) in the event that, subject to certain exceptions, the 2023 Notes ceased to have an investment grade rating. The Company was obligated to offer to repay the 2023 Notes at par if certain change in control events occur. The 2023 Notes were general unsecured obligations of the Company and ranked pari passu with all outstanding and future unsecured unsubordinated indebtedness issued by the Company.
The Note Purchase Agreement for the 2023 Notes contained customary terms and conditions for unsecured notes issued in a private placement, including, without limitation, affirmative and negative covenants such as information reporting, maintenance of the Company’s status as a BDC within the meaning of the 1940 Act and a RIC under the Code, minimum shareholders equity, minimum asset coverage ratio and prohibitions on certain fundamental changes at the Company or any subsidiary guarantor, as well as customary events of default with customary cure and notice, including, without limitation, nonpayment, misrepresentation in a material respect, breach of covenant, cross-default under other indebtedness of the Company or certain significant subsidiaries, certain judgments and orders, and certain events of bankruptcy.
The 2023 Notes were offered in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
In connection with the offering of the 2023 Notes, on December 21, 2017 the Company entered into a centrally cleared interest rate swap. The notional amount of the interest rate swap was $150 million. The Company received fixed rate interest semi-annually at 4.75% and paid variable rate interest monthly based on 1-month LIBOR plus 2.545%. The interest rate swap matured on December 21, 2021, and therefore, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company did not make any periodic payments. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company made periodic payments of $1.0 million and $3.0 million, respectively. The interest expense related to the 2023 Notes is equally offset by the proceeds received from the interest rate swap. The swap adjusted interest expense is included as a component of interest expense on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations. Depending on the nature of the balance at period end, the fair value of the interest rate swap is either included as a component of accrued expenses and other liabilities or prepaid expenses and other assets on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Assets and Liabilities. The change in fair value of the interest rate swap is offset by the change in fair value of the 2023 Notes, with the remaining difference included as a component of interest expense on the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
On November 23, 2021, we caused notice to be issued to the holders of the 2023 Notes regarding our exercise of the option to redeem in full all $150 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2023 Notes at 100% of their principal amount, plus the accrued and unpaid interest thereon through, but excluding, the redemption date, December 23, 2021.
