Wachovia Leads Euramax Refi
Euramax International, a Norcross, Ga.-based manufacturer of aluminum, steel, vinyl and fiberglass, is refinancing its $110 million credit facility. A bank meeting for a new $145 million credit is scheduled for this Wednesday. Wachovia Securities is leading the deal, which includes a $110 million revolver priced at LIBOR plus 21/2%, down 25 basis points from the previous credit. A $35 million term loan "A" is also priced at LIBOR plus 21/2%. Scott Vansant, Euramax's cfo, declined to comment.
BNP Paribas is the lead arranger on the existing credit, with Wachovia acting as collateral agent. Other lenders in the previous syndicate include Fleet National Bank, LaSalle Bank, PNC Bank and SunTrust Bank. It could not be determined by press time if BNP Paribas will be involved in the refinancing. Wachovia and BNP Paribas bankers did not return calls.
