DUBLIN, June 24, 2015 /CNW/ -- Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL) ("Endo") today announced that Endo Limited, Endo Finance LLC and Endo Finco Inc. (collectively, the "Issuers"), its wholly-owned subsidiaries, priced $1.635 billion aggregate principal amount of 6.00% senior notes due July 2023 at an issue price of $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount in connection with their previously announced private offering. The notes will be unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of Endo Limited, Endo Finance LLC and Endo Finco Inc. and will be guaranteed by certain of Endo Limited's direct and indirect subsidiaries.
Endo intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with $3.8 billion of new senior secured credit facilities and cash on hand, to (i) fund the purchase price of the previously announced acquisition of Par Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. ("Par"), as well as for repayments of indebtedness of Par and certain transaction expenses, (ii) refinance Endo's existing Term Loan B Facility and (iii) redeem (a) all $481,894,000 aggregate principal amount outstanding of the 7.00% Senior Notes due 2019 of Endo Finance LLC and Endo Finco Inc., and (b) all $17,981,000 aggregate principal amount outstanding of the 7.00% Senior Notes due 2019 of Endo Health Solutions Inc. (collectively, the "Redemption"). Endo intends to use any remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions and debt repayments.
Endo has upsized the offering of notes and its new senior secured credit facilities by a total of $500 million and expects to use those additional net proceeds, together with cash on hand, to consummate the Redemption.
The notes and the related guarantees have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any applicable state or foreign securities laws, and will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A, and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
