Revlon, Inc. (NYSE: REV) announced today that its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Revlon Consumer Products Corporation ("RCPC"), priced its previously-announced notes offering, setting the interest rate on $500 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the "Notes") at 5.75%. The Notes will be guaranteed by RCPC's domestic subsidiaries, which also currently guarantee RCPC's term loan and asset-based revolving credit facility. The transaction is expected to close on February 8, 2013, subject to a number of customary closing conditions.
RCPC intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to: (i) pay the tender offer consideration, including applicable consent payments, in connection with RCPC’s previously-announced cash tender offer to purchase any and all of the $330 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 9.75% Senior Secured Notes due November 2015 (the "9.75% Senior Secured Notes"); (ii) pay the applicable premium and accrued interest, along with related fees and expenses, on the 9.75% Senior Secured Notes that are subsequently redeemed by RCPC following the tender offer; (iii) pay applicable fees and expenses incurred in connection with the offering, the tender offer and any redemption; and (iv) use the remaining balance available for general corporate purposes, including debt reduction transactions such as repaying a portion of its 2011 Term Loan Facility due November 2017 and repaying the contributed loan portion of its Amended and Restated Senior Subordinated Term Loan at maturity in October 2013.
The Notes and the related guarantees are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and the related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
