Outerwall Inc. Announces Amended And Extended Senior Credit Facility As Part Of Capital Structure Strategy

BELLEVUE, Wash., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Outerwall Inc. (NASDAQ: OUTR) today announced that it entered into a new credit facility arrangement consisting of a senior secured $600 million revolving line of credit that, under certain conditions, may be increased up to an additional $200 million in aggregate, and a senior secured $150 million amortizing term loan. The maturity of the credit facility is extended until June 24, 2019. This follows the $300 million high-yield notes offering that closed on June 9, 2014.

Under the new credit facility, Outerwall borrowed $150 million under the term loan on the closing date and had $185 million outstanding under the revolving line of credit as of such date.

"As part of our capital structure strategy, we were able to lock in historically low interest rates and extend the maturity of our debt by issuing high-yield notes earlier this month and amending and extending our credit facility today," said Galen C. Smith, Outerwall's chief financial officer.  "Our capital structure is now better aligned with our targeted net leverage ratio of 1.75x to 2.25x net debt-to-core adjusted EBITDA.  In addition, we continue to have financial flexibility for future opportunities."

The new agreement, which closed on June 24, 2014, amends and restates in its entirety the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of November 20, 2007 and amended and restated as of April 29, 2009 and as of July 15, 2011 and all amendments and restatements thereto. The new agreement generally extends the maturity date of the new credit facility until June 24, 2019, when all borrowings then outstanding become due. In addition, the new credit facility decreases the aggregate amount of the previous term loan facility and provides Outerwall with greater flexibility than the prior agreement in certain matters, including in the incurrence of indebtedness, particularly foreign currencies.

The new credit facility is expected to be used for working capital, capital expenditures, permitted acquisitions, stock repurchases and other payments, and other corporate purposes.
