TEXT-S&P: Nexeo Solutions ratings unchanged on loan facility proposal
Oct 5 - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said today that its 'B' issue-level and '5' recovery rating on The Woodlands, Texas-based chemicals and plastics distributor Nexeo Solutions LLC's term loan remains unchanged following the company's proposal to increase the term loan to $525 million from $325 million. All of our other ratings on Nexeo, including the 'B+' corporate credit rating, also remain unchanged. The outlook is stable. Nexeo will use the proceeds to repay outstanding borrowings under its asset-based revolving (ABL) credit facility and for general corporate purposes. The '5' recovery rating on Nexeo's term loan indicates our expectation of a modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment default. For the complete recovery analysis, see Standard & Poor's recovery report on Nexeo to be published later on RatingsDirect. For the latest complete corporate credit rating rationale, see Standard & Poor's summary analysis, "Nexeo Solutions LLC," published Sept. 13, 2012.
