McMillan acts as Canadian counsel for the Agent, JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A. and JPMorgan Chase Bank (Toronto Brand), in connection with the extension by the lending group of debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing and exit ABL financing to Tailored Brand’s Inc., in connection with its cross-border US Chapter 11 and Canadian recognition proceedings.

The Company filed for protection on August 2, 2020 and emerged from bankruptcy at the end of the 2020 after successful implementation of a plan of arrangement. McMillan was transactional counsel for the Agent in respect of both the DIP financing and the exit financing and represented the DIP Agent in the Canadian recognition proceedings, which involved working towards the resolution of objections from Canadian landlords to the approval of DIP financing in the Canadian proceedings.

Tailored Brands is the owner of, among other business lines, Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank and Moore’s The Suit People.

Tailored Brands now operates with a strengthened capital structure, consisting of a $430 million ABL facility, a $365 million exit term loan and $75 million of cash from a new debt facility. The Company expects that this exit financing will support ongoing operations and enable the Company to execute on its strategic initiatives.

The McMillan team was led by Tushara Weerasooriya and included Jeffrey Rogers, Stephen Brown-Okruhlik and Benjamin Pan.
