NEW YORK, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- J.Crew Group, Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to announce the results relating to the approval of the Company's Term Loan Amendment, which was originally announced on June 16, 2017. After giving effect to the tabulation of consents received, lenders holding approximately 88% of the outstanding principal amount of loans under the Company's term loan agreement have consented to the Term Loan Amendment.
The Term Loan Amendment was announced in connection with the offer to exchange any or all of the outstanding $566.5 million aggregate principal amount of 7.75%/8.50% Senior PIK Toggle Notes due 2019 issued by Chinos Intermediate Holdings, A, Inc., an indirect parent company of the Company.
As previously announced, the Company views these transactions as strategically important to its overall effort in positioning the company for long-term success. Addressing the nearest-term maturity removes an overhang in a challenging market environment and provides the company a clear and more confident path to execute its business plan.
