Harbinger Group Inc. Announces Early Results Of Exchange Offer

Stocks in this article: HRG

Harbinger Group Inc. (“HGI”; NYSE:HRG) today announced the early tender results of its previously announced offer (the “Offer”) to exchange a portion of its outstanding 7.875% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) for up to $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount (the “Tender Cap”) of new 7.750% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “Additional Unsecured Notes”).

As of the early tender time of 5:00 pm, New York City time, on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 (the “Early Tender Time”), $407,299,000 in aggregate principal amount, or approximately 44 percent, of the outstanding Senior Secured Notes have been validly tendered and not withdrawn. As the Offer is oversubscribed, HGI has accepted for exchange tendered Senior Secured Notes on a prorated basis in the manner described in HGI’s offering memorandum, dated May 14, 2014, and the related letter of transmittal (together, the “Offer Documents”). The approximate proration factor was approximately 78.73%.

Settlement for the Senior Secured Notes accepted for exchange is expected to be made on Friday, May 30, 2014. On May 30, 2014, participating holders will receive $1,091.71 principal amount of Additional Unsecured Notes for each $1,000 principal amount of Senior Secured Notes accepted by HGI, subject to the Tender Cap, the required proration discussed above and rounding to accommodate minimum denominations as set forth in the Offer Documents. Following settlement on May 30, 2014, HGI is expected to have approximately $604.4 million in aggregate principal amount of the Senior Secured Notes outstanding and approximately $550.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 7.750% Senior Notes due 2022 outstanding.

“We are extremely pleased to report such a strong participation to this Offer, which, in conjunction with the consent solicitation, provides HGI with increased flexibility to execute the previously announced $100 million common stock repurchase program,” said Philip Falcone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HGI. “These transactions, as well as the recently completed conversion of HGI preferred stock into common stock, materially strengthen HGI’s balance sheet, simplify our capital structure and extend our debt maturity profile.”
