LEXINGTON, Ky., April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX) announced today that it has successfully completed the closing of its new revolving and term loan senior secured credit facilities.
The new $1.1 billion senior secured credit facilities include a $500 million revolving credit facility, a $500 million term loan facility and $100 million delayed draw term loan facility. The proceeds of the revolving and term loan facilities will be used to refinance Tempur Sealy's existing credit facilities and the proceeds of the delayed draw term loan facility will be used to support the repayment of Tempur Sealy's 8% Sealy Notes due July 2016.
The Company also reported that, pursuant to its previously announced share repurchase program, during the first quarter of 2016 the company purchased 1.73 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $57.71 for a total cost of $100 million.
Tempur Sealy Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson commented, "We are pleased to announce this refinancing, which lowers our borrowing costs, extends debt maturities, and provides the company with increased flexibility to manage its capital structure. We appreciate the very strong support we received from the financial community with 14 different banks participating."
Additional details regarding the new credit facilities will be available in Tempur Sealy's Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
