PHILADELPHIA, April 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lannett Company, Inc. (NYSE: LCI) (the "Company" or "Lannett") today announced the pricing of the $350 million aggregate principal amount of 7.75% senior secured notes due 2026 (the "Notes") in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and outside the United States to persons other than U.S. persons in reliance upon Regulation S under the Securities Act. The sale of the Notes to the initial purchasers is expected to settle on April 22, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will pay interest only semi-annually in arrears on April 15 and October 15 of each year, beginning on October 15, 2021, at a rate of 7.75% per annum in cash. The Notes will mature on April 15, 2026, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms. The Notes will be secured by first priority liens on substantially all of the assets of the Company and the guarantors, other than working capital assets pledged to secure the Company's asset-based credit facility, as to which the Notes will be secured on a second lien basis.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Notes offering, together with other anticipated borrowings under the separately disclosed junior lien credit facility due in July 2026 and cash on hand, to repay its existing Term B Loans, eliminating the associated interest and amortization payments, and to pay certain related fees and expenses.
