NEW YORK – Global investment firm The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) today announced that its Global Credit platform served as joint lead arranger and bookrunner for $925 million in senior secured credit facilities, including committing to and anchoring a $200 million second lien term loan, to support Kohlberg & Co.’s acquisition of Parts Authority Inc.

Headquartered in Lake Success, New York, Parts Authority is the leading distributor of automotive and truck parts to the automotive aftermarket industry in the U.S. The Company has rapidly grown its footprint to over 200 locations and distributes nearly 500,000 SKUs, primarily serving customers in the do-it-for-me segment, including independent installers, national fleets chains, jobbers, and e-tailers.

Carlyle’s $53 billion Global Credit platform made the investment with capital from its Credit Opportunities Fund, a $2.4 billion fund that closed last year, and its middle market lending platform, Carlyle Direct Lending.  

Carlyle’s credit opportunities team focuses on investments in privately negotiated capital solutions primarily for upper middle market borrowers, including both private equity sponsored and family or entrepreneur-owned companies. 

Carlyle’s direct lending team focuses on making investments across the capital structure, primarily in private equity sponsor-backed companies, including senior secured loans, unitranche loans and junior debt. 

Both strategies seek to benefit from proprietary investment opportunities originating from within Carlyle and the firm’s global resources and operating expertise.
