TORONTO, April 18, 2016 /CNW/ - GFL Environmental Inc. ("GFL") announced today that it has completed its previously announced private offering of US$200 million in aggregate principal amount of 9.875% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes"), with an issue price of 103.25%, plus accrued interest. The Notes form a single series with, and have the same terms as, the US$300 million aggregate principal amount of 9.875% Senior Notes due 2021 that were issued on February 1, 2016 by GFL Escrow Corporation, a predecessor by amalgamation to GFL.
GFL intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay its outstanding borrowings under its senior secured revolving credit facility, to pay fees and expenses in connection with the offering and for general corporate purposes, including financing future acquisitions and organic growth initiatives.
The Notes have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The Notes were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in the United States under Rule 144A and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act. In Canada, the Notes were offered and sold on a private placement basis in certain provinces of Canada pursuant to exemptions from the prospectus requirements under Canadian securities laws.
This release does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
