Antares Capital served as administrative agent and lead arranger on a $735 million senior secured credit facility to support the acquisition of TricorBraun Holdings by AEA Investors.

TricorBraun is a global supplier of plastic and glass containers, closures, dispensers and tubes from over 40 locations throughout North America and internationally.

“We are pleased to have Antares lead the financing for our investment in TricorBraun,” said Thomas Pryma, partner with AEA Investors. “Given our longstanding relationship with Antares, their knowledge of TricorBraun and their capital markets expertise, we were confident the team could execute with speed and flexibility.”

“We are very pleased to continue our 20-year relationship with TricorBraun as they work with AEA to execute their growth strategy,” said Chet Zara, senior managing director for Antares. “Given TricorBraun’s successful track record, combined with the non-discretionary nature of their end products and the stable demand drivers within the packaging sector, we are excited to see what this new partnership brings to bear for the company.”

AEA Investors was founded in 1968 by the Rockefeller, Mellon and Harriman family interests and S.G. Warburg as a private investment vehicle for a select group of industrial family offices with substantial assets.
