Borders Group “Close to Arranging Financing” as April Deadline Looms

borderslogo23.pngTomorrow Borders Group will face a deadline on a $42.5-million loan from Pershing Square Capital Management. Despite speculation about bankruptcy earlier this week, an unidentified source has said the company “is close” to reaching a financing solution.

Business Week reports that the bookseller “is close to arranging financing that would allow it to repay a loan due this week, two people with knowledge of the matter said.” Nevertheless, Standard & Poor’s analyst Michael Souers noted in the article: “Their long-term viability is still up in the air.”
