TYSONS, May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
TYSONS, Va., May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. ("Park" or the "Company")
announced today that certain of its subsidiaries, Park Intermediate Holdings LLC (the "Operating Company"), PK Domestic Property LLC ("PK Domestic LLC") and PK Finance Co-Issuer Inc. (together with the Operating Company and PK Domestic LLC, the "Issuers"), completed the previously announced offering of $750 million aggregate principal amount of 4.875% senior secured notes due 2029 (the "Notes"). The Notes will pay interest semi-annually in arrears, at a rate of 4.875% per year, and will mature on May 15, 2029. The Notes are guaranteed by Park and certain subsidiaries of the Operating Company that guarantee the Company's senior credit facilities and existing senior secured notes due 2025 and 2028. The Notes are secured, subject to permitted liens, by a first priority security interest in all of the capital stock of certain wholly owned subsidiaries of certain of the guarantors and PK Domestic LLC, which collateral also secures the obligations under the Company's senior credit facilities and existing senior secured notes due 2025 and 2028 on a first priority basis.
In accordance with the terms of its revolving credit facility (the "Revolver") and term loan facility entered into in 2019 and maturing in August 2024 (the "Term Loan"), the Company intends to use approximately $564 million of the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to repay amounts outstanding under the Revolver and approximately $173 million to repay a portion of the Term Loan. Subsequent to these repayments, the outstanding balances for the Revolver and Term Loan will be approximately $13 million and approximately $497 million, respectively.
Thomas J. Baltimore, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am extremely pleased with the execution of this offering, our third corporate bond issuance in 12 months, which increases our liquidity position to over $1.9 billion and extends our weighted average maturities to over five years. This transaction, combined with our recent and announced asset sales and hotel re-openings, demonstrate continued progress against our 2021 goals, which include returning to profitability, re-imagining the hotel operating model and further strengthening the balance sheet."
The Notes and the related guarantees were not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws. The Notes were not offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be "qualified institutional buyers" in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain non-U.S. persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a sale of, the Notes or any other securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements related to Park's current expectations regarding the performance of its business, financial results, liquidity and capital resources, the effects of competition and the effects of future legislation or regulations, the expected completion of anticipated dispositions, the declaration and payment of future dividends, and other non-historical statements. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts, and in some cases, can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as the words "outlook," "believes," "expects," "potential," "continues," "may," "will," "should," "could," "seeks," "projects," "predicts," "intends," "plans," "estimates," "anticipates," "hopes" or the negative version of these words or other comparable words. You should not rely on forward-looking statements since they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond the Company's control and which could materially affect its results of operations, financial condition, cash flows, performance or future achievements or events. Currently, one of the most significant factors continues to be the adverse effect of COVID-19, including possible resurgences, on the Company's financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance, its hotel management companies and its hotels' tenants, and the global economy and financial markets. COVID-19 has significantly affected the Company's business, and the extent to which COVID-19 continues to affect the Company, its hotel managers, tenants and guests at the Company's hotels will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its effect, the emergence of virus variants, the efficacy, availability and deployment of vaccinations and other treatments to combat COVID-19, including public adoption rates of COVID-19 vaccines, additional closures that may be mandated or advisable even after the reopening of certain of the Company's hotels on a limited basis, whether due to an increased number of COVID-19 cases or otherwise, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others. Moreover, investors are cautioned to interpret many of the risks identified in the risk factors included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 as being heightened as a result of the ongoing and numerous adverse impacts of COVID-19.
Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and Park urges investors to carefully review the disclosures Park makes concerning risk and uncertainties in Item 1A: "Risk Factors" in Park's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as such factors may be updated from time to time in Park's filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov . Except as required by law, Park undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
