Overall debt has been reduced and cash flow is improved.

York Label, Omaha, NE, USA, has announced that its private equity sponsor, Diamond Castle Holdings, and the company’s management team have acquired $32 million of York Label senior and subordinated debt, and have renegotiated favorable new terms and conditions with its banking partners.
