Three banks back Mill takeover
Bank of Ireland, GE Capital and Lloyds Banking Group provided leveraged loans to support Barclays Private Equity’s acquisition of The Mill, the visual effects company behind Nike’s 2010 world cup advert.
BPE bought The Mill for £119m from Carlyle. The size of the debt is unknown, but it is not expected to be large enough for a significant syndication process. RBS and Bank of Ireland provided around £40m of loans for Carlyles buy-out of the company in March 2007.
