KNOXVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Regal Entertainment Group (“Regal” or the “Company”) (RGC), announced today that it has priced its previously announced senior notes offering. A total of $250.0 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes, which will bear interest at a rate of 5.750% per year, will be issued. The notes will pay interest semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning December 15, 2013, and will mature on June 15, 2023. The Company anticipates that the offering will close on or around June 13, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.
Regal intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund its previously announced cash tender offers for its 9.125% senior notes due 2018 and the 8.625% senior notes due 2019 of Regal Cinemas Corporation, a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. In the event that there are remaining proceeds after funding the cash tender offers, Regal intends to use any such remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes and for the selective purchase of its outstanding debt. Such purchases may be in open market or privately negotiated transactions, through one or more additional tender or exchange offers, pursuant to redemption terms applicable to our debt, or otherwise.
