GREENWICH, CT, Jan. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. (NASDAQ:FSFR) (“FSFR”) announced today an estimated range of net investment income (“NII”) per share of $0.24 to $0.26 for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. This is the second consecutive quarter that NII has covered FSFR’s run rate quarterly dividend and compares with NII of $0.25 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. FSFR expects its net asset value (“NAV”) per share as of December 31, 2015 to be within an estimated range of $11.30 to $11.40, compared to its last reported NAV per share of $12.11 as of September 30, 2015.
