Brown Gibbons Lang & Company Announces Completion of Diversified Industrial Holding Company $115 Million Bond Exchange Offer

February 07 2002

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company ("BGL") today announced that its client, a Midwest-based diversified industrial holding company has successfully completed a $115 million publicly traded bond exchange offer. BGL served as exclusive financial advisor, helping to structure and negotiate the transaction.

The privately held industrial holding company included a graphic arts business and an industrial distribution business. After BGL conducted the successful sale of the industrial distribution business, the holding company was left with a marginally profitable graphic arts business and insufficient cash to meet the obligations of its $115 million Series B Senior Notes. BGL approached its client to pursue a transaction with the Senior Note holders. BGL structured an exchange offer that resulted in a cash payment and an equity interest in the remaining operating business for the Series B Senior Notes.
