“We are pleased to provide a DIP Facility to Namco that will offer the time-critical resources for the company necessary to thoroughly explore and evaluate all options under the supervision of the Court,” said Kyle C. Shonak, senior vice president, Special Opportunities at Salus Capital Partners. “It is our hope that the Namco DIP facility provides a mutually beneficial resolution or potential restructuring that maximizes value for all constituents involved.”
