The deal is said to comprise at least 75% leveraged loans and is underwritten by Lehman Brothers. The remaining bucket is for high-yield bonds, according to a source. Thomas Libassi, a managing director at GSC, and Mark Zusy, a managing director at Lehman did not return calls. There is an AMBAC Asset Assurancewrap on the senior notes, a source said.
