Helsinki - March 13, 2017. Paroc Group Oy (“Paroc”) announced that it is seeking to raise new senior credit facilities, comprising a €435 million term loan B facility and a €70 million revolving credit facility (the “New Senior Credit Facilities”). 

The proceeds of the New Senior Credit Facilities are intended to be used to redeem in full its existing €230,000,000 floating rate senior secured notes due 2020 (the “Floating Rate Notes”) and its €196,000,000 6¼% senior secured notes due 2020 (the “Fixed Rate Notes” and together with the Floating Rate Notes, the “Notes”) in accordance with the indenture governing such Notes, to make a distribution to shareholders and to pay related fees and expenses. The closing of the transaction, the initial funding of the New Senior Credit Facilities and the redemption of the Floating Rate Notes are expected to occur in March 2017. An additional borrowing of term loans and the redemption of the Fixed Rate Notes are expected to occur in May 2017.

The consummation and actual terms of the New Senior Credit Facilities are subject to a number of factors, including market conditions, negotiation and execution of definitive documents and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The terms of the New Senior Credit Facilities could materially differ from those outlined above and there can be no assurance that Paroc will enter into the New Senior Credit Facilities or will redeem the Notes. Any notices of redemption that Paroc submits with respect to the Notes will be conditional upon the drawing of the required amounts to fund the redemption of the Notes.
