On December 15, 2014, DI Purchaser Inc., Crossroads C&I Distributors Inc. and DI Intermediate Inc. and certain of their subsidiaries (collectively the “DI Group”), entered into a senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility in the principal amount of US$ 80 mn. The facility is agented by Bank of America, N.A, as Administrative Agent who also acted as Joint Lead Arranger and Bookrunner.

The DI Group is North America’s largest distributor of mechanical insulation serving industrial, commercial, marine, and railcar end-markets. DI Group supplies 42,000 products to over 9,500 customers through 64 branches in the US and Canada.
