Item 8.01 Other Events.
On August 30, 2017, NCL Corporation Ltd. (“NCLC”), a subsidiary of Norwegian Cruise Lines Holdings Ltd., delivered a conditional notice of redemption (the “Conditional Redemption Notice”) to the holders of its 4.625% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”). The Conditional Redemption Notice provides for NCLC’s redemption, pursuant to the terms of the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”), of all $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes on September 29, 2017 (the “Redemption Date”) subject to the Redemption Condition (as defined below). If the Redemption Condition is satisfied, the redemption price will be equal to 100.000% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed plus the Applicable Premium (as defined in the Indenture) as of the Redemption Date plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes so redeemed to, but excluding, the Redemption Date. As of the date of the Conditional Redemption Notice, the redemption price equals $1,043.95 per $1,000 of outstanding principal amount of Notes so redeemed, provided that such actual amount shall be recalculated prior to the Redemption Date pursuant to the terms of the Indenture and may differ from the amount calculated as of the date of the Conditional Redemption Notice. The redemption of the Notes is conditioned upon the completion by NCLC, on or prior to the Redemption Date, of a debt financing transaction on terms and subject to conditions satisfactory to NCLC (the “Redemption Condition”). If the Redemption Condition is satisfied, no Notes will remain outstanding following the Redemption Date. In NCLC’s discretion, the Redemption Date may be delayed until such time as the Redemption Condition shall be satisfied. In NCLC’s discretion, if the Redemption Condition is not satisfied on or prior to the Redemption Date (or by the Redemption Date as so delayed), the Conditional Redemption Notice may be rescinded and shall be of no effect.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
