WINCHESTER, Va., Jan. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- American Woodmark Corporation (NASDAQ: AMWD) ("American Woodmark") today announced the pricing of its previously announced private offering of $350 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the "Notes"). The Notes will mature on March 15, 2026, and will bear an interest rate of 4.875%. The offering is expected to close on February 12, 2018, subject to certain closing conditions.
As previously announced, on January 25, 2018, RSI Home Products, Inc. ("RSI"), a wholly owned subsidiary of American Woodmark, gave notice that it had elected to conditionally redeem 20% (the "Conditional Redemption"), or $115 million in principal amount, of the $575 million outstanding principal amount of its 6½% senior secured second lien notes due 2023 (the "RSI Notes"). Also, as previously announced, on January 29, 2018, RSI commenced an offer to purchase for cash the RSI Notes not subject to the Conditional Redemption pursuant to a tender offer and consent solicitation (the "Tender Offer").
American Woodmark intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes, together with the proceeds from borrowings under its senior secured delayed draw term loan facility and cash on hand, to (i) pay the redemption price for the Conditional Redemption, (ii) finance the Tender Offer and the redemption of any RSI Notes not purchased in the Tender Offer, along with related fees and expenses, and (iii) repay amounts outstanding under American Woodmark's senior secured revolving credit facility.
The Notes are being offered solely to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to 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 law and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale of any securities in any jurisdiction in which, or to any person to whom, such an offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act. This press release contains information about pending transactions, and there can be no assurance that these transactions will be completed.
