Enhancing Balance Sheet Flexibility to Support Future Growth
NEW YORK, July 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Focus Financial Partners Inc. (FOCS) (“Focus”), a leading partnership of independent, fiduciary wealth management firms, today announced that it is launching a transaction to increase the facility size of its First Lien Term Loan by $300.0 million, but will otherwise maintain the existing terms. Focus expects to close this transaction in July 2019 and use the proceeds to repay $300.0 million of outstandings under its $650.0 million First Lien Revolver (“Revolver”). There will be no change to the existing terms of the Revolver as a result of this reduction in borrowings.
“We are taking advantage of the positive credit environment to increase the borrowing capacity under our Revolver as we continue to prudently manage our credit and leverage profile,” said Jim Shanahan, Chief Financial Officer of Focus. “We see significant opportunities that will drive our 2019 growth in excess of our 20% annual targets for revenue and adjusted net income per share, demonstrating the power of our business model. Our pipeline remains robust, particularly as an increasing number of our partner firms seek to accelerate their growth through merger opportunities. This transaction will increase our flexibility to capitalize on the secular tailwinds shaping the RIA industry and position our business for future growth.”
