Unisys Announces Pricing of $485 Million Private Offering of Senior Secured Notes; Net Proceeds to Be Used to Fund U.S. Pension Plans
BLUE BELL, Pa., October 22, 2020 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) ("Unisys") announced today the pricing of $485 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Secured Notes due 2027 (the "notes") through a private offering to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to certain persons outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S, each under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The offering of the notes is expected to close on October 29, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. Unisys intends to use all of the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to fund a portion of its underfunded U.S. pension liability.
The notes will be guaranteed on a senior secured basis by material domestic subsidiaries of Unisys (the "subsidiary guarantors") on the issue date and, in the future, will be guaranteed by each U.S. domestic subsidiary that guarantees the company's ABL credit facility and by each restricted subsidiary that guarantees or becomes obligated as a co-issuer or co-borrower of certain capital markets debt issued or borrowed by Unisys or any subsidiary guarantor. The notes and the guarantees will be secured by liens on substantially all assets of Unisys and the subsidiary guarantors, which liens will be subordinated to the liens on ABL collateral in favor of the ABL secured parties and, in the future, may be subordinated to certain permitted first lien debt, subject to certain limitations and permitted liens.
The notes will be issued at par and will bear interest at a rate of 6.875% per year until maturity, payable semiannually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, beginning on May 1, 2021.
The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction.
This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
