KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Health Services, Inc. (NYSE: UHS) today announced an offering of $800 million aggregate principal amount of 4.750% senior secured notes due 2022 ("New 2022 Notes") and senior secured notes due 2026 (the "2026 Notes" and, together with the New 2022 Notes, the "Notes"). The New 2022 Notes will be issued as additional notes under the indenture governing our existing $300 million aggregate principal amount of 4.750% Senior Secured Notes due 2022, issued on August 7, 2014 (the "Existing 2022 Notes"). The New 2022 Notes and the Existing 2022 Notes will have identical terms, other than the issue date, the issue price and the first interest payment date, and the New 2022 Notes will constitute part of the same series as the Existing 2022 Notes. The New 2022 Notes will have the same CUSIP numbers as the Existing 2022 Notes, except for the Notes sold pursuant to Regulation S which will, on the 40th day following the issue date of the Notes, have the same CUSIP numbers. The New Notes that have the same CUSIP numbers as the Existing 2022 Notes will be fungible with the Existing 2022. The 2026 Notes will be a new issuance under a separate indenture. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to refinance existing indebtedness.

The Notes will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act and outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This notice is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
