Stocks in this article: SUNE TERP

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. and BELTSVILLE, Md., July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SunEdison, Inc. ("SunEdison") (NYSE: SUNE) and TerraForm Power, Inc. ("TerraForm Power") (NASDAQ: TERP) announced today that TerraForm Power, a subsidiary of SunEdison, has closed its previously announced initial public offering of 20,065,000 shares of its Class A common stock at a price to the public of $25.00 per share.  In addition, the underwriters exercised in full their option to purchase an additional 3,009,750 shares of Class A common stock at the initial public offering price. Concurrently with the closing of the initial public offering, TerraForm Power and its subsidiaries also closed (1) the two previously announced concurrent private placement transactions of $65.0 million in the aggregate at a price per share equal to the initial public offering price, (2) the acquisition of the Mt. Signal solar project and (3) a new $300 million term loan facility and $140 million revolving credit facility.

TerraForm Power received proceeds from the initial public offering, net of underwriting discounts and commissions and a structuring fee, of approximately $533.5 million.  TerraForm Power also received gross proceeds of $65.0 million from the sale of the Class A common stock in the private placement transactions. TerraForm Power used $436.2 million of the net proceeds from this offering and the private placements to acquire newly-issued Class A units of TerraForm Power, LLC ("Terra LLC") directly from Terra LLC, and used all remaining net proceeds to purchase Class B units (and Class B common stock) from SunEdison at a price equal to the price per share in this offering, less underwriting discounts and commissions and a pro rata portion of the structuring fee, which securities will be immediately cancelled contemporaneously with Terra LLC issuing additional Class A units to TerraForm Power.

Terra LLC used the net proceeds of $436.2 million, together with borrowings under its new term loan facility, to repay all outstanding indebtedness (including accrued interest) under its bridge facility, to pay fees and expenses related to the new term loan and revolving credit facility and to repay $47.0 million of project-level indebtedness. In addition, Terra LLC will use $86.0 million of the net proceeds to pay for the acquisition and related milestone payments of certain projects included in TerraForm Power's initial portfolio from SunEdison. The $194.4 million of net proceeds remaining with Terra LLC after the foregoing will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include future acquisitions of solar assets from SunEdison or from unaffiliated third parties.
