New Look completes financial restructuring

Fashion retailer New Look has completed a financial restructuring that has reduced its long-term debt from around £1.35 billion to £350 million.

In addition, the transaction has delivered £150 million of new long-term capital in the form of new senior secured notes which has been used to repay New Look's £80 million bridge facility, settle transaction costs, and provide the business with additional liquidity to support its future development.

Alistair McGeorge, New Look executive chairman, said the completion represented a significant milestone in New Look’s turnaround process.

He added:  “With a materially deleveraged balance sheet and a more flexible capital structure, we now have a stable operating platform, which positions us well to respond to challenges and grasp new market opportunities.

“With a highly experienced management team and a stable operating platform in place, we are now positioned to deliver on our wider plans and attack our future.”
