CIT Group Inc, a leading global commercial finance company, announced that it has provided a $90 million revolving line of credit and term loan to Como Fred David Group, a women's apparel company.

As part of the transaction Como Fred David's principals retained a significant ownership stake in the new company.

“Gordon Brothers has an extensive portfolio of middle market apparel and consumer companies. We are delighted to provide financing to a company that has a strong track record and experience in the industry,” said John F. Daly, President of CIT Commercial Services.

Matthew Kahn, Principal of GM Merchant Partners, said, “CIT did a great job in getting this deal closed in a very difficult credit environment.
