CHICAGO - Investment banks interested in securing a spot on Wisconsin's long-anticipated restructuring of its $1.4 billion of outstanding tobacco bonds - one of the largest deals slated to come out of the Midwest this year - have until Sept. 18 to submit their qualifications as the state seeks to revamp its current team to adapt to significant industry changes.

While the electronic deadline for submissions is Sept. 18, bankers are asked to submit additional paper copies of their proposals to the capital finance office by Sept. 19. Wisconsin is currently reviewing the submissions of financial advisers who participated in a recent request for qualifications process and the firm or firms selected will help the state put together the revised banking team.
