BOSTON, July 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Eagle Senior Loan Fund (the “Fund”) (formerly NYSE: FSLF) today announced its initial liquidating distribution to its shareholders.

On or about July 16, 2021, the Fund will distribute $83,315,253, or $11.23 per share, in a cash liquidating distribution to shareholders entitled to such distribution. This represents a return to shareholders of 71.3% of the Fund’s net asset value per share as of June 30, 2021.
