Neovia Logistics recapitalization
We advised Neovia Logistics in connection with its recapitalization
Davis Polk advised Neovia Logistics Holdings Limited and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, “Neovia” or the “Company”) in connection with a comprehensive business recapitalization that substantially deleveraged the Company’s balance sheet, provided an infusion of new capital and will allow Neovia to invest in growing its business and provide greater value to its customers.
On November 1, 2022, Neovia entered into a master transaction agreement with its sponsors and lenders to implement the recapitalization and related transactions. The agreement provided for the equitization of approximately $420 million of debt and approximately $60 million in new-money financing commitments.
Based in Irving, Texas, Neovia is a global leader in third-party logistics, operating more than 100 facilities in 20 countries across four continents. For over 30 years, Neovia has combined an OEM mindset with real-world innovation to partner with, and solve complex logistics challenges for, leading companies in the automotive, industrial, aerospace and consumer products sectors.
