NEW YORK — Sixteen months after the biggest leveraged buyout in U.S. corporate history, RJR Nabisco Inc. is asking its four major bank lenders to help refinance part of the $25 billion spent to take the company private last year, the company said Wednesday.

Banking sources said the refinancing would total $5.3 billion and involve RJR's worst-performing junk bonds.

RJR Nabisco said it was in discussions with its major creditor banks to amend existing agreements to allow it to buy back a "significant amount" of its debt.
