The notes will be treated together with the existing senior notes as a single series of debt securities, and will have the same terms as and be fungible with the existing senior notes.
The company says it intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay a portion of its senior secured term loan facility in connection with its proposed amendment of that facility. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, BofA Merrill Lynch and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
