NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA OR JAPAN, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.
Grünenthal GmbH (the “Company”) today announced the pricing of €300 million aggregate principal amount of 6.75% senior secured notes due 2030 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be issued at 100%. The Notes were offered outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In the United States, the Notes were offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act.
The Notes were rated ‘BB+’, ‘BB-‘ and ‘B1’ by the three major independent credit rating agencies Fitch Ratings, Standard & Poor's and Moody’s Investors Service respectively.
This new financing will enhance Grünenthal’s capital structure and its maturity profile. The Notes will provide additional flexibility for the company’s strategy implementation and growth plans. The Company will use the proceeds from the Notes mainly to refinance its €200 million loan facility established in 2022 to partially fund the Nebido™ acquisition, as well as to refinance its €75 million promissory notes.
This Notes issue follows on from Grünenthal successfully extending the maturities of its €500 million revolving credit facility earlier this year. The offering of the Notes is expected to close on 25 April 2023.
These materials are not an offer for sale of securities. The offering is being made by means of an offering memorandum. This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
The Notes and the related guarantees have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States, and may not be offered or sold within the United States, or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons, except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state or local securities laws. Accordingly, the Notes and the related guarantees are being offered and sold (i) in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and (ii) in “offshore transactions” to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This communication is only being distributed to and is only directed at (i) persons who are outside the United Kingdom, (ii) persons who are investment professionals falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005, as amended (the “Order”), (iii) are persons falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) (high net worth companies, unincorporated associations, etc.) of the Order, or (iv) any persons to whom an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity (within the meaning of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000) in connection with the issue or sale of any securities may otherwise lawfully be communicated or cause to be communicated (all such persons together being referred to as “relevant persons”).
