Cygnus Business Media lines up $220 million in financing

Norwalk, Conn.—GE Commercial Finance Global Media & Communications announced it has arranged a $220 million senior debt facility for Westport, Conn.-based Cygnus Business Media.

GE Commercial Finance committed to and underwrote two-thirds of the facility, with Union Bank of California underwriting the remainder.
