MADISON, N.J., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY) (the "Company") announced today that its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, Realogy Group LLC ("Realogy Group"), together with a co-issuer, priced $450 million aggregate principal amount of 4.500% senior notes due 2019 (the "Notes") in connection with their previously announced private offering exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The closing of the offering is expected to occur on April 7, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured senior basis by each of Realogy Group's domestic subsidiaries (other than the co-issuer of the Notes) that is a guarantor under its senior secured credit facility and its outstanding securities. The Notes will also be guaranteed by the Company on an unsecured senior subordinated basis. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of Realogy Group's existing and future senior secured debt, including its senior secured credit facility and its outstanding senior secured notes, to the extent of the value of the assets securing such debt.
The Company intends to use a portion of the $444 million of net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to repurchase approximately $354 million of the Company's 7.875% Senior Secured Notes due 2019, and to pay related premiums of $33 million as well as related fees and expenses, concurrent with the closing of the offering. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering of the Notes for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Company may also use such proceeds to repay existing secured notes from time to time, through either tender offers, redemptions, purchases in privately negotiated transactions, open market purchases, or a combination thereof, and to pay the fees and expenses related thereto.
The Notes and the related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes and the related guarantees will be offered in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act and outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities, nor shall there be any sales of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135(c) under the Securities Act.
