Conyers Dill & Pearman advised Credit Suisse, as lead arranger for a consortium of financial institutions, in connection with the provision of acquisition financing to Reynolds Group Holdings Limited, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of consumer food and beverage packaging and storage products, for its acquisition of Pactiv Corporation.

The financing package comprised debt facilities of approximately US$2 billion together with an offering, by way of private placement, of US$3 billion senior notes to be issued by various subsidiaries of Reynolds Group Holdings Limited.
