Restructured Gala Coral launches £1.55bn refinancing with generous margins
Gala Coral, the UK gambling company that finalised the restructuring of its £2.5bn debt in June 2010, launched a £1.55bn refinancing on Thursday following a bank meeting. The debt comprises £900m of leveraged loans and £650m of high yield bonds.

The remainder of the loan is a six year revolving credit for £100m that will pay 400bp
