MORRISVILLE, N.C., Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Parent, Inc. (the “Issuer” or the “Company”) and Syneos Health, Inc. (“Syneos Health”), announced today that, subject to market conditions and other factors, the Issuer intends to offer $1,700,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Senior Secured Notes due 2030 (the “Notes”). The Issuer intends to use the proceeds from the offering together with other financing sources to fund the previously announced acquisition of Syneos Health (the “Acquisition”) by the Issuer and certain of its affiliated entities (such affiliates, together with the Issuer, the “Purchasing Entities”) and related refinancings. The Purchasing Entities were newly-formed entities established by a consortium of private investment funds led by Elliott Investment Management L.P. and its affiliates, Patient Square Capital, LP and its affiliates and Veritas Capital Fund Management, L.L.C. and its affiliates. If the sale of the Notes is not completed concurrently with the closing of the Acquisition, then the proceeds from the sale of the Notes will be placed into escrow until the closing of the Acquisition.
The Notes will be offered and sold in a private placement to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes will not be registered under 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 or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes. No offer, solicitation or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. Any offers of the Notes will be made only by means of a private offering circular. This announcement does not constitute an offer to purchase with respect to any of Syneos Health’s existing securities or a notice of redemption with respect to any of Syneos Health’s existing securities.
