Issuance of Senior Notes due 2029
On April 30, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), Primo Water Holdings Inc. (the “Issuer”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Primo Water Corporation (the “Company”), issued $750 million in aggregate principal amount of 4.375% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “New Notes”). The offering and sale of the New Notes were made only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or, outside the United States, to persons other than “U.S. persons” in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. In Canada, the New Notes were offered and sold on a private placement basis in certain provinces to accredited investors in reliance on available exemptions from the prospectus requirement of applicable Canadian securities laws.
The net proceeds from the offering of the New Notes, together with cash on hand, will be used to redeem all of the Company’s 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”) outstanding on May 2, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”) at a redemption price equal to 102.750% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Notes redeemed, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount being redeemed to, but excluding, the Redemption Date, and to pay the related premium, fees and expenses.
On the Closing Date, the Issuer entered into an indenture (the “Indenture”) with the guarantors party thereto (the “Guarantors”), BNY Trust Company of Canada, as Canadian trustee and The Bank of New York Mellon, as U.S. trustee, paying agent, registrar, transfer agent and authenticating agent. Interest is payable on the New Notes on each April 30 and October 31, commencing on October 31, 2021. On or after April 30, 2024, the New Notes will be subject to redemption at any time and from time to time at the option of the Issuer, in whole or in part, at the redemption prices (expressed as percentages of principal amount) set forth below plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the applicable redemption date, if redeemed during the twelve-month period beginning on April 30 of the years indicated below:
2026 and thereafter
In addition, at any time prior to April 30, 2024, the Issuer may redeem all or a portion of the New Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof plus a “make-whole” premium, using a discount rate equal to UST plus 50 basis points.
The terms of the Indenture, among other things, limit the ability of the Issuer and the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to incur additional debt and issue preferred stock; pay dividends or make other restricted payments; make certain investments; create liens; allow restrictions on the ability of certain of the Company’s subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other payments to it; sell assets; merge or consolidate with other entities; and enter into transactions with affiliates, subject to certain thresholds and exceptions. The Indenture provides for customary events of default which include (subject in certain cases to customary grace and cure periods), among others, nonpayment of principal or interest; breach of other covenants or agreements in the Indenture; failure to pay certain other indebtedness; failure to pay certain final judgments; failure of certain guarantees to be enforceable; and certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency.
The foregoing summary description of the Indenture is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Indenture, which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
