Coveris Holdings S.A. Launches Incremental Term Loan and Proposed Amendments to its Existing Senior Secured Term Loan Facility

CHICAGO--()--Coveris Holdings S.A. (the “Company” and together with its direct parent company and its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Group”), a portfolio company of funds advised by Sun Capital Partners, Inc., announced today the launch of certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to its existing senior secured term loan (the “Term Loan” and the Term Loan as amended by the Proposed Amendments, the “Amended Term Loan”). The Term Loan currently consists of a $342.2 million U.S. dollar-denominated senior secured tranche, which is currently priced at LIBOR plus 3.50% (with a LIBOR floor of 1.00%), and a €244.7 million euro-denominated tranche, which is currently priced at EURIBOR plus 3.50% (with a EURIBOR floor of 1.00%).

In connection with the Proposed Amendments, the Company intends to upsize the existing tranches by way of a proposed incremental term loan (the “Incremental Term Loan”) in the aggregate amount of $350.0 million (equivalent). The Incremental Term Loan, which is expected to comprise both a U.S. dollar-denominated tranche and a euro-denominated tranche, will mature on May 8, 2019, the same date as the existing Term Loan.

The Group intends to use the proceeds from the Incremental Term Loan to redeem (the “Redemption”) all of Coveris Holding Corp.’s (formerly, Exopack Holding Corp.) outstanding 10.00% senior notes due 2018, to repay (the “Repayment”) a portion of the amounts outstanding under the North American and United Kingdom asset-backed revolving credit facilities to which certain members of the Group are party, and to pay any fees, premiums and expenses related to the Redemption and the Repayment. The occurrence of the Redemption and Repayment are conditioned upon the closing of the Incremental Term Loan and the Proposed Amendments.

Additionally, in connection with the Proposed Amendments, the negative covenants in the Term Loan will be amended to provide the Company with additional capacity for, among other things, additional indebtedness, restricted payments, dispositions, investments and acquisitions.

The Incremental Term Loan and the Proposed Amendments to the Term Loan are expected to close in August 2016. Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Credit Suisse International and J.P. Morgan Limited are the joint lead arrangers for the Proposed Amendments and the Incremental Term Loan.

A conference call will be held for investors on July 20, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. (London time) (Dial-in numbers: 08009531289 in the U.K., +1 8668692321 in the U.S., and +44 (0) 203 0095710 for all other international locations; Conference passcode: 51448338).
