Capital One announced today that it served as administrative agent and lead arranger for an amended and restated credit facility totaling approximately $960 million for Covis Group S.á.r.l. This includes a $485 million upsize to its existing facility in support of the company’s acquisition of AMAG Pharmaceuticals.
