SIG Combibloc Group’s €1.90 billion refinancing

Fried Frank acted as lead counsel to Bank of America Merrill Lynch International, Credit Suisse International, and Goldman Sachs Bank USA as lead arrangers in connection with a €1.90 billion refinancing for SIG Combibloc Group

SIG Combibloc Group, a market-leading provider of aseptic carton packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry, which was taken public on the SIX Swiss Exchange by Onex Corporation in October 2018. Successfully priced at CHF11.25 per share, the IPO is a landmark event for the SIG Combibloc Group and the refinancing, which closed on October 2, 2018, was considered an important step to provide the necessary flexibility for the group’s continued growth.

William Reindel; corporate special counsel Andrew J. Klein; and corporate associates Samuel A. Borland, Ian L. Cohen, Graham Greenwood, Eliza Riffe Hollander, Madeline A.
