WAUKESHA, WISCONSIN. May 7, 2013 – Safway Group Holding LLC (“Safway”) announced today the pricing of its offering of $560.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.000% senior secured second lien notes due 2018 (the “Notes”). The offering was increased from a previously announced size of $540.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes. The Notes will be co-issued by Safway’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Safway Finance Corp. The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior basis by Badger Holding LLC, Safway’s parent company (“Parent”), and by certain of Safway’s existing and future material domestic subsidiaries, and will be secured by a second-priority lien on substantially all of Safway’s and the guarantors’ assets, other than certain excluded assets. The offering is expected to close on May 14, 2013, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
Safway expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay in full the entire principal amount outstanding under its second lien senior secured term loan and a portion of the borrowings outstanding under its ABL credit facility, to make a distribution to Parent to enable Parent to pay a dividend to its equity holders, to pay related fees and expenses of the offering and for general corporate purposes.
The Notes and related guarantees are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or, outside the United States, to persons other than “U.S. persons” in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
