US$2.5 Billion Asset-Based Loan Facility for United Rentals
Our attorneys represented the administrative agent and a lender, as joint lead arranger and joint bookrunner, in a $2.5 billion senior secured asset-based loan facility extended to United Rentals Inc. and certain of its US and Canadian subsidiaries. At United Rentals’ option, the facility size may be increased by up to an additional $1.25 billion (or a greater amount under certain circumstances).
