Enerpac Tool Group Announces Early, Voluntary Redemption of Its Outstanding Senior Notes Due 2022
MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Enerpac Tool Group Corp. (NYSE:EPAC) today announced it is providing notice to bond holders calling for redemption of all its outstanding 5.625% Senior Notes due 2022 (CUSIP: 00508XAF1; ISIN: US00508XAF15) (the “Notes”) in accordance with the Indenture dated April 16, 2012 (as amended and supplemented, the “Indenture”) governing the Notes. The aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes is $287,559,000. This voluntary, early redemption of the Notes will occur on June 15, 2020 (“Redemption Date”) at a redemption price equal to 100% (expressed as a percentage of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed) plus accrued and unpaid interest up to but not including the Redemption Date.
Enerpac Tool Group intends to fully fund the redemption of the Notes by drawing on its previously undrawn $400 million revolving credit facility, which currently carries an interest rate of LIBOR + 137.5 bps for drawn amounts. The early redemption is expected to reduce annual interest expense by as much as $10 million at current interest rates while continuing to preserve financial flexibility for the Company.
This press release is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a notice of redemption of, or an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase, the Notes. The formal notice of redemption is being provided separately in accordance with the terms of the Indenture.
