Avaya Inc. Announces Repricing of $2.918 Billion Senior Secured Term Loan

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Avaya Holdings announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Avaya Inc., has successfully repriced its $2.918 billion senior secured term loan.

“The repricing of this senior secured term loan reflects our improved credit profile and will save Avaya over $14 million in annual cash interest expense,” said Pat O’Malley, Avaya’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

The repricing of the term loan which matures in 2024 reduces the interest rate from LIBOR plus 4.75% to LIBOR plus 4.25% per annum and reduces the LIBOR floor from 1% to 0%. The repricing was led by J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs Bank USA as joint lead bookrunners and arrangers.
