Simpson Thacher Represents MDC Partners in Two Transactions


Simpson Thacher represented MDC Partners and certain of its subsidiaries in connection with the entry into an amended and restated $225 million senior secured revolving credit facility.

Simpson Thacher also represented MDC in connection with a Rule 144A/Regulation S offering of $550 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.75% senior notes due in 2020, fully and unconditionally guaranteed by all of its existing and future subsidiaries that guarantee its senior secured credit facility.

Any remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including funding of deferred acquisition consideration.
