USA: GE Capital Becomes Co Agent on Cash Flow Credit Facility for Vigor Industrial


GE Capital, Corporate Finance today announced it is co-administrative agent on a $145 million cash flow-based credit facility for Vigor Industrial LLC, a ship building and repair company. The loan is being used to support the acquisition of Todd Shipyards Corporation, a ship repair and maintenance company. GE Capital Markets served as co-lead arranger.

Based in Portland, OR, Vigor Industrial provides ship construction, repair and conversion, barge building, industrial coating, machining, industrial real estate, and fabrication services.
