Lannett Announces Offering Of $350 Million Senior Secured Notes Due 2026
PHILADELPHIA, April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lannett Company, Inc. (NYSE: LCI) (the "Company") today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $350 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2026 (the "Notes") in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and outside the United States to persons other than U.S. persons in reliance upon Regulation S under the Securities Act.
The Notes are expected to bear interest that will be payable semiannually. The Notes will mature in April 2026, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms. The Notes will be secured by first priority liens on substantially all of the assets of the Company and the guarantors, other than working capital assets pledged to secure the Company's asset-backed credit facility, as to which the Notes will be secured on a second lien basis. The final terms of the Notes will be determined by market conditions and other factors and there is no guarantee that the Notes offering will be completed.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Notes offering, together with other borrowings under a separate anticipated junior lien credit facility and cash on hand, to repay its existing term loan indebtedness and to pay certain related fees and expenses.
This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The offering of the Notes is being made to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States to persons other than U.S. persons in reliance upon Regulation S under the Securities Act.
