Experience

  • Advising Tuckamore Capital Management Inc. and its subsidiaries in connection with the assignment of all of the rights and obligations of the senior lenders under their senior secured credit facility totaling approximately $96 million to a syndicate of lenders led by Bank of Montreal, followed by an amendment and restatement of the credit facility on significantly better terms. This transaction marked an important step in a complex financial restructuring plan that was developed with the advice of Norton Rose Canada's special situations team for Tuckamore in the fall of 2010. The initial phase of this plan was implemented in December 2010 with the refinancing of its then senior credit facility. The second phase involved the exchange of Tuckamore's publicly traded debentures, unsecured debt and accrued interest aggregating approximately $202.7 million for a combination of second lien debentures ($176.2 million) and unsecured debentures ($26.5 million) in March 2011, which effectively took the company out of forbearance vis-à-vis their senior lenders.
