PLANO, Texas, Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At Home Group Inc. (HOME) (the "Company"), the home décor superstore, today announced that it has initiated discussions with potential lenders to refinance its existing senior secured term loan facility as part of a broader strategy to lower the Company's overall cost of borrowing. The new $425 million senior secured term loan facility would mature seven years after the closing date and replace the Company's existing $300 million term loan facility maturing in June 2022. Proceeds from the new term loan are expected to be used to repay the remaining balance on the existing term loan, reduce outstanding borrowings under the Company's asset-based revolving credit facility, and pay fees and expenses associated with the transaction. The proposed refinancing, if completed, is expected to provide additional liquidity for the Company and provide for an extended maturity of the senior secured term loan facility.
Lee Bird, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The proposed refinancing of our term loan facility is an opportunity to improve our capital structure and increase our financial flexibility as we focus on the continued achievement of our long-term growth potential."
The consummation of the refinancing is subject to market and other conditions, including the completion of definitive agreements and customary closing conditions. There can be no assurance that the refinancing will occur, or, if it does, as to the terms of the refinancing.
