We advised Moran Foods on the refinancing

Davis Polk advised Moran Foods, LLC (d/b/a Save A Lot) in connection with the amendment and extension and refinancing of its term loan and ABL credit facilities, consisting of a $175 million first-lien term loan facility and an incremental $75 million first-lien second-out term loan facility, a $149 million second-lien term loan facility and a $15 million supersenior delayed-draw term loan facility and a $180 million asset-based revolving credit facility and a $20 million asset-based first-in-last-out term loan facility provided by a group of commercial banks. The refinancing of the term facilities served to restructure Moran Foods’ capital structure pursuant to a cashless exchange of approximately $75 million of second-lien term loans for incremental first-lien second-out term loans and decrease overall debt service under the capital structure as a whole.

Founded in 1977, Save A Lot is one of the largest discount grocery store chains in the United States, with more than 850 stores in 32 states.
