MADISON, N.J., May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY) (the "Company") announced today that its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, Realogy Group LLC ("Realogy Group"), together with a co-issuer, priced $500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.875% senior notes due 2023 (the "Notes") at the initial offering price of 99.269% of the principal amount in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The closing of the offering is expected to occur on June 1, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured senior basis by each of Realogy Group’s domestic subsidiaries (other than the co-issuer of the Notes) that is a guarantor under its senior secured credit facilities and its outstanding securities. The Notes will also be guaranteed by the Company on an unsecured senior subordinated basis. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of Realogy Group’s existing and future senior secured debt, including its senior secured credit facilities, to the extent of the value of the assets securing such debt.
The Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from this offering to reduce outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility and the remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include additional debt transactions. The Company continues to evaluate a potential debt transaction in which the Company would extend the maturity date on its Term Loan B facility and reduce the outstanding principal amount under such facility. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to complete any such transaction on acceptable terms or at all, and its ability to do so will depend upon numerous factors such as market conditions, many of which are outside the Company’s control.
The Notes and the related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes and the related guarantees will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act and outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities, nor shall there be any sales of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135(c) under the Securities Act.
