BofA, BMO, SunTrust Arrange Financing for Heartland Buy

Heartland Payment Systems announced it has completed the acquisition of TouchNet Information Systems, an integrated commerce solutions provider to higher-education institutions.

Under the terms of the agreement, Heartland paid a purchase price of $375 million in cash. The purchase was funded primarily with a new 5-year, $375 million secured term loan, which comprised a portion of a new credit facility that closed simultaneously with the acquisition. The new credit facility also includes a secured $400 million revolving credit line. Lead arrangers for the new credit facility were Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BMO Capital Markets and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.
