Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") assigned a B3 rating to Builders FirstSource, Inc.'s ("BLDR") proposed 6.625% senior secured notes due 2027. The company announced an exchange offer for its existing $750 million ($675.9 million currently outstanding) 5.625% senior secured notes due 2024 for a like amount (or for up to $400 million) of the new 6.625% Notes due 2027. All other terms and conditions of proposed notes will be similar to BLDR's existing Notes due 2024, and will rank pari passu to the remaining amount of Notes due 2024 and to the company's senior secured term loan maturing in 2024, both of which are rated B3.
