MACAU, Jan. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Resorts Finance Limited (“Melco Resorts Finance”) announces that it has priced its international offering of 5.375% senior notes due 2029 (the “Additional Notes”). Melco Resorts Finance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (“Melco”).
The offering consists of US$250 million aggregate principal amount of Additional Notes, priced at 103.25% of the principal amount plus accrued interest from December 4, 2020 to, but not including, the issue date of the Additional Notes. Melco Resorts Finance intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand if applicable, for repayment of the principal amount drawn under the revolving credit facility under the senior facilities agreement entered into by MCO Nominee One Limited, a subsidiary of Melco Resorts Finance, on April 29, 2020, together with accrued interest and associated costs, and any remaining balance for general corporate purposes.
The Additional Notes are proposed to be senior obligations of Melco Resorts Finance, ranking equally with all of Melco Resorts Finance’s existing and future senior indebtedness and will constitute additional notes under the indenture, dated December 4, 2019 pursuant to which Melco Resorts Finance issued US$900 million aggregate principal amount of 5.375% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “Original Notes”) on December 4, 2019. The Additional Notes will be consolidated and form a single series with the Original Notes. Melco will not be a guarantor of the Additional Notes.
The Additional Notes are being offered and sold in the United States to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside of the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Additional Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or under the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state laws. Melco Resorts Finance does not intend to register any portion of the offering of the proposed Additional Notes in the United States.
