CommScope Holding Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: COMM) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CommScope, Inc. (the “Issuer”), priced its offering of USD 700 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.125% senior unsecured notes due 2028 (the “Notes”), the company said.
The Notes are being offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-US persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by each of the Issuer´s existing and future wholly owned domestic restricted subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions. The Issuer currently intends to use the net proceeds of the offering of the Notes, together with cash on hand, to (i) redeem and retire the USD 50 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 5.00% senior notes due 2021, (ii) redeem and retire the USD 650 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 5.50% senior notes due 2024 and (iii) pay fees and expenses related to the foregoing (collectively, the “Refinancing Transactions”). There can be no assurance that the issuance and sale of the Notes or the Refinancing Transactions will be consummated. The offering of the Notes is expected to close on July 1, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
