BELOIT, Wis.--()--American Builders & Contractors Supply Co., Inc. ("ABC" or the "Company") announced yesterday the pricing of a private offering of $700 million aggregate principal amount of 4.000% senior secured notes due 2028 (the "Notes”).

Concurrently with the closing of the offering of the Notes, the Company intends to amend and restate its existing Term Loan Facility (the “Amended and Restated Term Loan Facility”), pursuant to which, among other things, repay its existing Term Loan Facility with a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes and the borrowings under the Amended and Restated Term Loan Facility, extend the maturity date of its Existing Term Loan Facility to January 15, 2027 and replace Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch with Bank of America, N.A. as administrative agent and collateral agent.

Any offers of the Notes will be made only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes being offered have not been approved or disapproved by any regulatory authority, nor has any such authority passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the applicable private offering memorandum.
