MAI Basic Four of Tustin said it has secured key financing commitments for its proposed hostile takeover of Prime Computer. MAI said Merrill Lynch & Co. has committed up to $325 million for MAI’s tender offer for Prime, or up to $337 million if the merger is completed. Toronto-based Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce has committed an additional $325 million. The remainder of the financing is supposed to come from high-yield “junk bonds” arranged by Drexel Burnham Lambert, but MAI is still negotiating a final agreement with the investment banking firm. MAI is trying to acquire Prime for $970 million.
