Nordic Capital Said to Hire Banks for Unifeeder LBO Financing

Nordic Capital, a Swedish buyout firm, hired banks to arrange leveraged loans to back its acquisition of Unifeeder AS, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

Danske Bank A/S and UniCredit SpA are arranging debt of more than 200 million euros ($260 million), said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deal is private.

Katarina Janerud, a spokeswoman for Nordic Capital, declined to comment on the financing.

Nordic Capital said on April 5 it agreed to buy Aarhus, Denmark-based Unifeeder from Montagu Private Equity LLP. Unifeeder transports containers from large hubs to regional ports across Europe, Russia and Northern Africa.
