BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SBA Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:SBAC) (“SBA”) announced today that it has priced an offering of $1.1 billion of senior notes due 2024 (the “Notes”), which was upsized from the previously announced $800 million. SBA expects the closing of the Notes to occur on August 15, 2016. The Notes will have an interest coupon of 4.875% and will be issued at a price of 99.178% of their face value for an effective yield of 5.0%.
SBA intends to use the net proceeds from the offering and cash on hand to redeem $800 million, the aggregate principal amount outstanding, of SBA Telecommunications, LLC’s 5.75% senior notes due 2020 and $250 million of SBA’s 5.625% senior notes due 2019 and pay the associated call premiums.
The Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, 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 applicable state securities laws. SBA has agreed to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to which SBA will either offer to exchange the Notes for substantially similar registered notes or register the resale of the Notes. This press release does not and will not constitute an offer to sell any of the Notes or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
