MACAU, May 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Resorts Finance Limited, formerly known as MCE Finance Limited (“Melco Resorts Finance”), announces that it has priced its international offering of senior notes due 2025 (the “New Notes”). Melco Resorts Finance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (“Melco”).
The offering consists of US$650 million aggregate principal amount of 4.875% senior notes due 2025. The New Notes were priced at 100%. Melco Resorts Finance intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with proceeds in the amount of US$350 million from a drawdown of the revolving credit facility under the amended and restated credit facilities entered into by Melco Crown (Macau) Limited in 2015 and cash on hand, to fund the redemption of all of its outstanding 5.00% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Existing Notes”).
The New 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. Melco will not be a guarantor of the New Notes.
The New 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 New 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 New Notes in the United States.
Nothing in this press release constitutes an offer to buy, or a solicitation of an offer to sell, securities in the United States or any other jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation would be unlawful.
