Signode is a global manufacturer of industrial packaging, tools and equipment.  Based in Glenview, Illinois, the 100-year-old company has 88 manufacturing locations globally, which allows it to reach customers in over 60 countries.

Milbank’s deal team was led by Milbank securities partners Rod Miller and Stuart Morrissy, leveraged finance partner Lauren Hanrahan and tax partner Andrew Walker along with associates JonathanBrown, Jessica Cunningham, Susan Yanes, Max WeissandErika Hauser.

“The high-yield sector has been one of the hottest parts of the securities market and a major contributor to the strong pace of private equity deals this year,” Mr. Miller said.  “We’re extremely pleased to have played a key role in helping finance Carlyle’s acquisition of a crown jewel manufacturer such as Signode, which is certain to continue growing globally as a stand-alone company.”
