LEXINGTON, Ky., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX) today announced that it completed its previously announced offering of $600 million aggregate principal amount of 5.500% senior notes due 2026 (the "Notes"), issued at par.
The Notes are general unsecured senior obligations of Tempur Sealy and are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by all of Tempur Sealy's existing and future domestic restricted subsidiaries that guarantee or are borrowers under its senior secured credit facilities. The Notes will pay interest semi-annually on June 15 and December 15 of each year beginning on December 15, 2016. The notes will mature on June 15, 2026.
Tempur Sealy also announced that it has called for redemption all $375 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.875% senior notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes") on June 23, 2016 (the "Redemption Date"). The 2020 Notes will be redeemed at a price equal to the principal amount thereof and the applicable "make-whole" premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest through the Redemption Date.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to redeem the 2020 Notes and for general corporate purposes, which may include repurchases of its common stock pursuant to existing authorizations and any future authorizations approved by its Board of Directors.
Scott L. Thompson, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer said: "We're delighted with this long term debt transaction. It allows us to refinance our senior notes due 2020 with new ten year debt that carries a lower fixed interest rate while providing the Company greater covenant flexibility. This debt transaction is consistent with our leverage target outlined last year."
The Notes were sold in a private offering only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to certain non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. 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 or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
