TTM expects to utilize a new $1.3 billion senior secured credit facility to finance the cash portion of the purchase price, refinance certain debt at each company, and provide liquidity for working capital and general corporate purposes. TTM has received a fully-underwritten financing commitment from J.P. Morgan and Barclays to finance the transaction. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and approval by the shareholders of Viasystems. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2015. J.P. Morgan acted as financial advisor for TTM, and Stifel acted as financial advisor for Viasystems.
