CARMEL, Ind., May 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- IAA Spinco Inc. (to be renamed IAA, Inc.) ("IAA") announced today that it has priced its previously announced offering of 5.500% senior notes due 2027 (the "notes"), in connection with the previously announced spin-off of IAA from KAR Auction Services, Inc. (KAR) ("KAR"). The size of the offering has been increased from $400 million to $500 million.
IAA intends to use the net proceeds from the notes offering, together with expected borrowings of $800 million under senior secured credit facilities into which IAA anticipates entering into, to pay a special dividend to KAR and to pay fees and expenses related to the spin-off. The proceeds of the notes offering will be held in escrow until satisfaction of the conditions precedent to the spin-off and certain other escrow release conditions.
The notes will be issued at an issue price of 100% and, if the escrow release conditions are satisfied, will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis on and after the escrow release date by the Company's existing and future domestic subsidiaries that will guarantee its proposed senior secured credit facilities.
The notes offering is expected to close on June 6, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.
The notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), any state securities laws or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration. Accordingly, the notes are being offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
