MACAU, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Studio City Finance Limited (“Studio City Finance”) announces that it has priced its international offering of 5.000% senior notes due 2029 (the “Additional Notes”). Studio City Finance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Studio City International Holdings Limited (“SCIHL”).
The offering consists of US$350 million aggregate principal amount of Additional Notes, priced at 101.50% of the principal amount plus accrued interest from January 14, 2021 to, but not including, the issue date of the Additional Notes. Studio City Finance intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to partially fund the capital expenditures of the remaining project for Studio City and for general corporate purposes.
The Additional Notes are proposed to be senior obligations of Studio City Finance, ranking equally with all of Studio City Finance’s existing and future senior indebtedness and will constitute additional notes under the indenture, dated January 14, 2021 pursuant to which Studio City Finance issued US$750 million aggregate principal amount of 5.000% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “Original Notes”) on January 14, 2021. The Additional Notes will be issued on the same terms and conditions (other than the issue date and issue price) as the Original Notes and will be consolidated and form a single series with the Original Notes. The Additional Notes are proposed to be guaranteed by all of Studio City Finance’s existing restricted subsidiaries on a senior basis (the “Note Guarantees”). SCIHL will not be a guarantor of the Additional Notes.
The Additional Notes and the Note Guarantees 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 Additional Notes and the Note Guarantees have not been and 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. Studio City Finance does not intend to register any portion of the offering of the proposed Additional Notes and the Note Guarantees in the United States.
