GC Investment Management has the ability to enter into trading plans to satisfy the reinvestment guidelines, however, only one trading plan may be entered into at a time and each trading plan may not account for more than 5% of the portfolio's collateral amount, according to S&P. Additionally, GC will be restricted from entering into any future trading plans if there have been two previously unsuccessful trading plans.

S&P also noted during the reinvestment period, the collateral manager may direct excess interest proceeds to be transferred to the supplemental reserve account to deposit into the collection account and utilize as principal proceeds, repurchase the notes of any class, or pay refinancing-related expenses.

GC Investment Management currently manages 11 other CLOs.
