Darling International Inc. Announces Proposed Private Offering Of $500 Million Of Unsecured Senior Notes

IRVING, Texas, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Darling International Inc. (NYSE: DAR), today announced that it intends, subject to market and other conditions, to launch an offering of $500 million in aggregate principal amount of its unsecured senior notes (the "Notes") in the near future.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Notes offering to satisfy, discharge and redeem the Company's 8.5% Senior Notes due 2018, to finance a portion of the Company's previously announced acquisition of the Vion Ingredients division of Vion Holding N.V., to pay certain fees and expenses in connection with the Vion Ingredients acquisition and the financing thereof, and for general corporate purposes.

The Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to non-U.S. Persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

The Notes initially will be issued by a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  If the Vion Ingredients acquisition is not consummated, the Notes will be mandatorily redeemed and, therefore, the Company's 8.5% Senior Notes due 2018 will not be satisfied and discharged or redeemed with the proceeds thereof.  If the Vion Ingredients acquisition is consummated, the Notes will be assumed by the Company and guaranteed by various domestic subsidiaries of the Company.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes, in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.
