IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. ("Sabra") (Nasdaq:SBRA) today announced that certain subsidiaries of Sabra (the "Issuers") have priced and entered into an agreement to issue and sell, subject to certain conditions, $350 million aggregate principal amount of 5.5% senior notes due 2021 (the "Notes") pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on May 20, 2013 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Sabra expects to close the offering on January 23, 2014, subject to the satisfaction of customary market and other closing conditions.
The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior unsecured basis, by Sabra and certain of Sabra's other existing and, subject to certain exceptions, future subsidiaries. Sabra intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to fund the pending tender offer of the Issuers to purchase any and all of their outstanding 8.125% senior notes due 2018 (the "Existing 2018 Notes") and related consent solicitation. In the event that all of the Existing 2018 Notes are not tendered in the tender offer or the Issuers do not consummate the tender offer, Sabra currently intends (but is not obligated) to use the net proceeds from the offering to redeem any and all Existing 2018 Notes that remain outstanding. Sabra intends to apply the remainder of the net proceeds of the offering to repay a portion of its borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility.
