Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), a direct subsidiary of Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) and global provider of Communications Infrastructure services, announced today the pricing of its offering of $800 million aggregate principal amount of 5.750% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “2027 Senior Notes”). The note offering is expected to close on or about January 27, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of various customary closing conditions.
As previously announced, Zayo intends to enter into a new seven-year, $2.5 billion incremental term loan facility (the “Incremental Term Loan”), which will be used to repay all outstanding indebtedness under Zayo’s existing term loan facility and, together with the net proceeds of the offering of the 2027 Senior Notes, will be used to fund the consideration to be paid in connection with Zayo’s acquisition of Electric Lightwave Parent, Inc. (the “Acquisition”). Any excess net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of other indebtedness, acquisitions, working capital and capital expenditures. The terms of the Incremental Term Loan have not been finalized and may include, among other things, one or more tranches with four-year or other shorter-dated maturities.
The 2027 Senior Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and are being offered and sold in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These include, but are not limited to, statements regarding Zayo’s plans, intentions and expectations. Such statements are inherently subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include, but are not limited to, market conditions and other factors that could affect Zayo’s ability to complete the proposed debt offering. A more extensive discussion of the risk factors that could impact these areas and Zayo’s overall business and financial performance can be found in Zayo’s reports and other filings filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Given these concerns, investors and analysts should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
