United States > Finance > Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Highly regarded as ‘a leader in the Midwest market’, Ohio-headquartered Jones Day fields a deep national practice, which benefits from strong teams across the country. The issuer-dominated group handles offerings across a wide range of industry sectors, with energy and technology companies among its largest repeat-issuer clients. Among the names to note, Cleveland-based Kimberly Pustulka brings to bear an impressive track record in high-yield debt deals and recently advised MPLX, a subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum, on its $5.5bn offering of senior notes. Sprint Corporation is another key client, which turned to the firm for assistance with its issuance, by three wholly-owned subsidiaries, of $3.9bn worth of wireless spectrum-backed notes — New York-based Eric Maki and Houston-based Kelly Turner led that deal. Other key contacts include Chicago-based Edward Winslow and Cleveland’s Michael Solecki.
