FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Metals USA, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Metals USA Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MUSA) ("Metals USA"), today announced that it has entered into a new seven year senior secured term loan in the amount of $225 million and has redeemed all $226.3 million of its outstanding 11 1/8% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 (the "Notes").  The new term loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 5.0%, and includes a 1.25% LIBOR floor and 1% of original issue discount.  The interest rate is 6.25% at the closing of the term loan compared to an interest rate of 11 1/8% on the Notes.  Metals USA projects the refinancing will reduce annual cash interest expense by approximately $10 million, which is expected to generate positive impacts to both free cash flow and annual pro forma earnings per share.
