JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE: BKFS) ("Black Knight") today announced that its indirect subsidiaries, Black Knight InfoServ, LLC and Black Knight Lending Solutions, Inc. (together, the "Issuers") have delivered a conditional notice of redemption to holders of their outstanding 5.75% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "Notes") subject to the satisfaction of the Condition (as defined below). The redemption of the Notes is expected to occur on April 26, 2017 (the "Redemption Date").
Subject to the satisfaction of the Condition, the Issuers intend to redeem the Notes at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed, plus the Applicable Premium (as defined below), plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the Redemption Date (the "Redemption Price"). The aggregate principal amount outstanding of the Notes is $390.0 million. The "Applicable Premium" will be the greater of (1) 1.0% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed on the Redemption Date, and (2) the excess, if any, of (i) the present value at the Redemption Date of (a) the redemption price of 102.875% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed on the Redemption Date, plus (b) all required remaining scheduled interest payments due on such Notes through October 15, 2017 (excluding accrued but unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Redemption Date), computed using a discount rate equal to the Treasury Rate as of such Redemption Date, plus 50 basis points, over (ii) the principal amount of the Notes redeemed on the Redemption Date. The redemption of the Notes is subject to and conditioned upon the Issuers' ability to secure third-party financing sufficient to make the payment of the Redemption Price (the "Condition").
From the Redemption Date forward, the Notes will no longer be deemed outstanding, interest will no longer accrue and holders will have no rights other than the right to receive the Redemption Price, without additional accrued interest, upon surrender of the Notes. Payment of the Redemption Price will be made only upon presentation and surrender of the Notes to U.S. Bank National Association as trustee and paying agent, at the address specified in the Conditional Notice of Redemption.
