NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Revlon, Inc. (NYSE:REV) (“Revlon”) today announced that Revlon Escrow Corporation (the “Escrow Issuer”) priced its previously announced notes offering of senior unsecured notes due 2024 (the “Notes”), setting the annual interest rate at 6.25% and increasing the aggregate principal amount of Notes offered from $400 million to $450 million. The Escrow Issuer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Revlon Consumer Products Corporation, Revlon’s wholly owned subsidiary (“RCPC” and, together with Revlon, the Escrow Issuer and their subsidiaries, the “Company”). The Notes are being issued to finance, in part, the Company’s pending acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of Elizabeth Arden, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDEN and “Elizabeth Arden”) and certain related refinancing transactions that were previously disclosed in Revlon’s and RCPC’s respective Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 17, 2016. The amount of cash on hand the Company plans to use to finance the Acquisition will be reduced by the net proceeds from the additional $50 million aggregate principal amount of Notes issued, with any remaining proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes. The Acquisition is expected to close by the end of 2016. The net proceeds of the Notes will be held in escrow until the satisfaction of various customary conditions precedent, including completion of the Acquisition, RCPC’s assumption of the Notes from the Escrow Issuer, and the guarantee of the Notes by RCPC’s wholly owned domestic subsidiaries, including, upon consummation of the Acquisition, Elizabeth Arden and its domestic subsidiaries, subject to limited exceptions.
The Notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities mentioned in this press release in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
