COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TTM Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTMI) ("TTM") announced today that it intends to offer, subject to market and other customary conditions, $375 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes will be the senior unsecured obligations of TTM and will be guaranteed by TTM’s subsidiaries that guarantee its senior secured credit facilities, subject to certain exceptions.
TTM previously announced that it has begun to syndicate a $350 million senior secured term loan (the “New Term Loan”). TTM intends to use the net proceeds of the offering of the Notes, together with expected borrowings from its New Term Loan, to refinance the indebtedness outstanding under TTM’s existing term loan facility and repay a portion of the amounts outstanding under TTM’s U.S. senior secured revolving credit facility, as well as to pay related fees and expenses.
The Notes and related guarantees are being offered in a private placement, solely to persons believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act or outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and related guarantees 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 the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities or blue sky laws and foreign security laws.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any Notes, nor shall there be any sales of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This press release is being issued pursuant to, and in accordance with, Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
