ClubCorp plans to raise about $252 million from initial public offering of 18 million shares

Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) -- ClubCorp Holdings hopes to raise about $252 million from an initial public offering of 18 million shares.

The operator of private golf and country clubs, sports and alumni clubs, said that the IPO priced at $14 per share. That's below the projected range of $16 to $18 per share, according to a regulatory filing.

ClubCorp is offering 13.2 million shares, while a selling stockholder affiliated with KSL Capital Partners LLC is offering 4.8 million shares. In the regulatory filing, ClubCorp initially said that it would offer 10.9 million shares and the selling stockholder would offer 7.1 million shares.

The selling stockholder is giving the underwriters a 30-day option to buy up to an additional 2.7 million shares.

ClubCorp anticipates net proceeds of about $168.8 million, after underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses. It won't receive any proceeds from shares sold by the selling stockholder. The company plans to use part of its proceeds to redeem $142.3 million senior notes due 2018. It also expects to use part of the proceeds and available cash to make a one-time payment of $5 million to a KSL Capital affiliate in connection with the ending of a management agreement.

The offering is expected to close on Wednesday.

Shares of ClubCorp Holdings Inc. are expected to start trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday under the "MYCC" ticker symbol.

  • Exxon may delay spending after 2017 if down market persists

    Exxon Mobil Corp, the world's largest publicly traded oil company, said on Wednesday its output would rise slowly through 2017 and it may delay some investments thereafter if crude prices stay low. Oil prices have halved since June, and major oil companies have been trimming budgets for projects to bring expensive and hard-to-find new discoveries online. "The oil and gas business is cyclical and we've been here before," Rex Tillerson, Exxon's chief executive officer told a meeting of Wall Street analysts. Still, Tillerson expects the downturn to persist for some time because of the resilience of North American shale oil supplies, and because some supplies crimped by political instability could come back online at any moment.

  • U.S. private sector adds jobs in February, but growth slows: ADP

    U.S. private employers added fewer jobs than expected last month, with the gains declining as well from January's revised level as growth slowed in some sectors, a payrolls processor report showed on Wednesday. The ADP National Employment Report, jointly developed with Moody's Analytics, showed a gain of 212,000 private-sector jobs. Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP to show a gain of 220,000 jobs. For instance, service-providing employment rose by 181,000 jobs in February, compared with growth of 206,000 in the sector in January.

  • Fraud Starts to Take a Bite Out of Apple Pay

    It didn’t take long for fraud to find its way to Apple Pay. Some banks are witnessing a growing incidence of fraud on Apple Inc.’s mobile-payment service as criminals exploit vulnerabilities in the verification process banks follow when users add a credit card to the service, according to people familiar with the matter. The problem was brought to light in late February in a blog post by Cherian Abraham, a payments expert who works with banks and retailers on mobile-payment strategies. Mr. Abraham said it isn’t “an anomaly” for fraud to account for about 6% of Apple Pay transactions, compared with about 0.1% on transactions that involve swiping a credit card.

  • US mutual funds cut expenses by shifting billions to trusts

    Mutual fund companies, including No. 2 Fidelity Investments, have slashed fees on their most popular funds by shifting billions of dollars into collective trusts not regulated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The growing shift to collective trusts could prove a weapon for actively managed mutual funds losing out to low cost passive investment products such as the exchange-traded funds offered by rivals such as Vanguard Group, the biggest mutual fund company. "CITs are more opaque to the outside world because reporting requirements are not as stringent," said Michael Rawson, manager of research at Morningstar Inc. Retirement plans sponsored by Delta Air Lines Inc cut fees by 23 percent last year when they shifted an estimated $1 billion in assets managed by Fidelity's Contrafund into a collective investment trust (CIT).
