Intelsat announced that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Intelsat Jackson Holdings S.A. (“Intelsat Jackson”), intends to offer $300 million aggregate principal amount of its 9.750% senior notes due 2025 (the “Notes”). The offering would constitute an offering of additional notes having the same terms as Intelsat Jackson’s existing 9.750% Senior Notes due 2025 (other than issue price).
Intelsat Jackson’s obligations under the Notes will be guaranteed by certain of Intelsat Jackson’s subsidiaries that guarantee its obligations under its senior secured credit facilities. In addition, Intelsat, Intelsat Investment Holdings S.à r.l., Intelsat Holdings S.A., Intelsat Investments S.A., Intelsat (Luxembourg) S.A. and Intelsat Connect Finance S.A., which are direct or indirect parent companies of Intelsat Jackson, will guarantee the Notes as of their issue date.
The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes are expected to be used by Intelsat Jackson for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, the funding of capital expenditures, future strategic transactions and repayment of our existing indebtedness.
The Notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act and applicable exemptions from registration, prospectus or like requirements under the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions outside the United States. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes will also not be registered in any jurisdiction outside of the United States and no action or steps will be taken to permit the offer of the Notes in any such jurisdiction where any registration or other action or steps would be required to permit an offer of the Notes.
The Notes may therefore not be offered or sold in any such jurisdiction except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the relevant requirements of laws and regulations of such jurisdictions.
No prospectus as required by the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the implementing laws and regulations in the relevant member states) has been filed with respect to the Notes and therefore no offers of Notes may be made in any Member States of the European Economic Area unless made pursuant to an exemption under the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the implementing laws and regulations in the relevant Member States).
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities of Intelsat, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.―BCS Bureau
