Arcapita Bank BSC, owners of Irish power utility Viridian Group Plc, hired NM Rothschild & Sons Ltd., KPMG and Linklaters LLP to advise on a $1.1 billion loan repayment due in March, said two people familiar with the plans.
Royal Bank of Scotland Plc is chairing a coordinating committee of lenders, one of the people said. They declined to be identified because the matter is private.
A spokesmen for Arcapita declined to comment. Nicole Hayde, a spokeswoman for RBS in Dubai, didn’t have a comment when contacted today. The Financial Times reported the appointment earlier today.
