ELMSFORD, N.Y., Feb. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Party City Holdco Inc. (“the Company” or “Party City”) (NYSE: PRTY) today announced the proposed offering by its wholly-owned subsidiary Party City Holdings Inc. (“PCHI”) of $725 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). The Notes and the related Notes guarantees will be offered in a private offering 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 non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The precise timing, size and terms of the offering are subject to market conditions and other factors.
We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay all outstanding borrowings under our term loan facility maturing 2022, to pay related fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes, which may include debt repurchases.
The Notes will be guaranteed by each restricted subsidiary that guarantees PCHI’s senior credit facilities. The Notes and related guarantees will be secured by a first priority lien on substantially all assets of the issuer and the guarantors, except for the collateral that secures the senior credit facilities on a first lien basis, with respect to which the Notes and related guarantees will be secured by a second priority lien.
The Notes and the related Notes guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. The Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
