Toronto Dominion is said to be leading a $200 million credit backing Spectrum Equity's $345 million acquisition of Broadwing's Cincinnati Bell Directory business. Bankers at TD did not return calls and timing and pricing could not be determined. The company being formed by Spectrum for the directory business is called CBD Media. Calls to Randy Henderson, cfo of Spectrum in California, were not returned. Spectrum is the latest phone directories business dialing up the loan market, following the Yell Group's acquisition of McLeod USA's telephone directories business last month. CIBC World Markets is set to launch syndication of that credit (LMW, 1/21).
