FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic" or the "Company") today announced that the Company intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $300 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2023 (the "notes") through a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to certain persons outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S, each under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").
The notes will be secured, senior obligations of the Company, and interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears. The notes will be guaranteed on a senior secured basis by Basic's existing material subsidiaries (excluding certain finance-related subsidiaries). The notes will initially be secured by a first-priority lien on substantially all of the assets of the Company and the subsidiary guarantors other than accounts receivable, inventory and certain related assets.
Basic intends to use the net proceeds of the proposed offering to repay Basic's existing indebtedness under its existing Second Amended and Restated Term Loan Agreement, to repay Basic's outstanding borrowings under its asset-based secured revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.
Neither the notes nor the related guarantees have been, nor will be, registered under the Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
