WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HanesBrands (NYSE: HBI) announced today that it is planning to offer $500 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2025 in a private offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), subject to market and other customary conditions. The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of HanesBrands and will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of HanesBrands’ domestic subsidiaries that guarantee its credit facilities or certain other indebtedness.
HanesBrands currently intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay the outstanding borrowings under its revolving loan facility, to pay related fees and expenses, and, the remainder, for general corporate purposes.
The notes and the related guarantees will be offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The offer and sale of the notes and the related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and any applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any of the notes, nor shall there be any sale of the notes in any state or 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 135(c) under the Securities Act.
