Davis Polk is advising Neovia Logistics on the launch of its marketing for a first-lien financing as part of its efforts to complete a comprehensive recapitalization and refinancing. The first-lien financing is expected to consist of a $75 million super-senior revolver and a $325 million first-lien term loan. In addition to the first-lien financing, the recapitalization will include a $200 million second-lien term loan investment from Neovia’s existing unsecured note holders and a preferred equity investment of up to $165 million of new equity from Neovia’s existing sponsors, Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division and Rhône Capital.
