RCS Capital Corporation Receives B2 Rating From Moody's, B+ From S&P

Stocks in this article: RCAP

NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  RCS Capital Corporation (NYSE: RCAP) ("RCAP") announced today that it had received a B2 corporate rating from Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") and a B+ rating from Standard & Poor's ("S&P").  In addition, RCAP's proposed $575 million senior secured first lien facilities received a B2 rating from Moody's and a B+ rating from S&P.  RCAP's proposed $150 million senior secured second lien term loan received a Caa1 rating from Moody's and a B- rating from S&P.  The debt is expected to be issued in conjunction with RCAP's previously announced pending acquisition of Cetera Financial Holdings, Inc. and is being arranged by Barclays Bank PLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Incorporated as Joint Lead Arrangers and Bookrunners.  These ratings assume that RCAP will complete all of its previously announced acquisitions.

RCS Capital Corporation, Inc.

William M. Kahane, Chief Executive Officer of RCAP, commented, "We view the ratings issued by Moody's and S&P for our new credit facilities as a strong endorsement of the Cetera acquisition and of our acquisition plan under which we expect to become the second-largest network of financial advisors in the United States."
