Jillian has played a role on a number of teams advising:
- Healogics, Inc., the nation’s leading wound-care center operations provider, on a comprehensive restructuring of over $860 million in funded debt through an out-of-court debt-for-equity exchange, resulting in a $450m deleveraging that obtained 100% participation from its lenders and provided Healogics with $240 million in new equity financing. As part of the transaction, the Company also secured a new $30M revolving credit facility, in addition to a new $370 million first lien term loan.
- VIVUS, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company with three approved therapies and one product candidate in clinical development, and its debtor-affiliates in their chapter 11 restructuring addressing more than $230 million of funded debt. VIVUS’ restructuring involves, among other things, an innovative go-forward royalty structure between the reorganized company and pre-reorganization shareholders to address the highly speculative nature of value inherent to developmental drugs.
- Eagle Hospitality Trust, in connection with the representation of Monarch Alternative Capital as the new-money DIP lender to the Eagle Hospitality debtors and purchaser for 10 hotels in the portfolio of Eagle Hospitality, a real estate investment trust holding diverse hotel properties in the United States.
