Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") today assigned a Caa2 rating to U.S. Renal Care, Inc.'s (NEW) ("U.S. Renal") new senior unsecured notes. There is no change to the company's existing ratings, including the B3 Corporate Family Rating, B3-PD Probability of Default Rating, and B2 ratings on the company's new senior secured revolving credit facility and term loan. Moody's expects that the proceeds from these notes, along with the company's proposed credit facility and equity, will be used to finance the $2.7 billion leveraged buyout of the company by a consortium of private equity investors led by Bain Capital and Summit Partners.
When a Californian company founded by a U.S. veteran wounded in Afghanistan sought to register a new medical device this year, it turned to Europe before the United States. "Now it has flipped," said Bill Colone, CEO of San Clemente-based Spinal Singularity, which hopes to launch a 'smart' catheter for men with spinal injuries or disease early next year after squeezing in its application under the old European rules. Colone is part of a chorus of industry voices warning that a switch to stricter European rules governing medical devices, due to come into force a year from now, will slow or even halt the release of products in Europe that could transform patients' lives.
The rating agency also assigned a B2 rating to the company's new senior secured revolving credit facility and term loan. Moody's expects that the proceeds from the proposed credit facility, along with the issuance of junior debt capital and equity, will be used to finance the $2.7 billion leveraged buyout of the company by a consortium of private equity investors led by Bain Capital and Summit Partners.
