RICHMOND, Va., June 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brink’s Company (BCO), today announced that it has closed its previously announced 5-year senior unsecured notes offering in an aggregate principal amount of $400 million. The notes were priced at par with an annual interest rate of 5.5% and will mature in July 2025.
Proceeds from the notes are expected to be used in part to repay certain existing indebtedness incurred in connection with the acquisition of the G4S Cash businesses, finance the remaining acquisitions of the G4S Cash businesses and pay certain fees and expenses related to the transactions. Remaining net proceeds are expected to be used for working capital needs, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.
