International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), a wholly owned subsidiary of American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG), announced today that it has closed a new senior secured term loan of $900 million. The loan will bear interest at LIBOR plus 400 basis points with a 1% LIBOR floor, and is priced at 99% of par value. The collateral used to support the transaction has an initial weighted average age of 13.4 years.
ILFC plans to use the proceeds to repay a portion of the company’s outstanding debt, to pay related fees and expenses for the transaction, and for general corporate purposes. A portion of the proceeds will be used to prepay in full all amounts outstanding under ILFC’s secured revolving credit facility, and as a result ILFC no longer has any debt agreements with a change of ownership limitation.
ILFC Chief Executive Officer Henri Courpron commented, “This financing is significant as it demonstrates continued progress in improving ILFC’s overall capital structure.”
