The Notes will be guaranteed by Holdings and, subject to certain exceptions, by the Company’s existing and any future U.S. subsidiaries. The Notes will be secured, subject to certain exceptions and permitted liens, on a first priority basis by the assets (other than inventory and accounts receivables and related assets, which assets secure the Company’s senior asset-based credit facility on a first priority basis) of Holdings and each of the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries and on a second priority basis by the assets that secures the Company’s asset-based credit facility on a first priority basis.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of Notes to (i) redeem and repay in full its outstanding 9.50% senior secured notes due 2016 (the “2016 Notes”), and (ii) pay fees and expenses related to the offering and related transactions. Any remaining proceeds will be available for general corporate purposes. Completion of the offering of Notes is conditioned upon customary closing conditions. In addition, the completion of the offering of Notes is conditioned upon the Company entering into an amendment to its existing senior unsecured loan facility in the aggregate principal amount of $125.0 million (the “Senior Unsecured Loan Facility”).
On July 23, 2015, the Company and the lenders (the “Lenders”) under the Senior Unsecured Loan Facility entered into an agreement (the “Support Agreement”) in which the Lenders have agreed to support an amendment to the Senior Unsecured Loan Facility with terms including an extension of the maturity of the Senior Unsecured Loan Facility to 5.5 years after the closing date of the amendment, certain increases in the interest rate payable on amounts outstanding thereunder, and that not more than 2% interest may be paid in cash and the remainder shall be paid-in-kind until the Company meets certain financial tests. The obligations of the Lenders under the Support Agreement are subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including the completion of the offering of Notes.
