Boscov’s Inc. appeared to clear the final hurdle in its battle to emerge from Chapter 11 in family hands Tuesday night when freeholders in Atlantic County, N.J., voted 7 to 2 in favor of guaranteeing $1 million under the federal government’s Section 108 loan program.
Boscov’s needed Atlantic County to cap the $300 million package of government loans and private equity required to seal emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. That was backed since December by a combined $200 million credit line from Bank of America, Wells Fargo, GE Finance and CIT. It also includes $53 million from the Boscov and Lakin families and $35 million from the state of Pennsylvania, where Boscov employs 5,000 out of a total of about 9,000.
