Cahill represented Bank of America as administrative agent and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith and Barclays Captial as joint lead arrangers in connection with the $1,200,000,000 credit facility comprised of a $1,075,000,000 Term B loan and a $125,000,000 revolving credit facility for Sophia L.P.
