LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) (the “Company”) today announced that it priced $750 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2032 (the “Notes”) to be sold in a private offering to individuals reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers” pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The offering is expected to close on or about November 16, 2021 (such actual closing date, the “Settlement Date”), subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Notes will not be guaranteed by any of the Company’s subsidiaries at the time of issuance. The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 3.875% per year. Interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, commencing May 15, 2022, and will accrue from the Settlement Date. The Notes will mature on May 15, 2032.
The Company estimates that after deducting fees and expenses payable by the Company, the net proceeds from the issuance and sale of the Notes will be approximately $741 million (the “Net Proceeds”). The Company intends to use approximately $725 million of the Net Proceeds to redeem the entire $700 million outstanding principal amount of its 5.375% senior notes due 2022. The Company intends to use the remaining Net Proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of indebtedness, share repurchases, funding for acquisitions, capital expenditures, additions to working capital and capital contributions to the Company’s health plan subsidiaries to meet statutory requirements in new or existing states.
The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the benefit of, a U.S. person (as defined in Regulation S) except in transactions exempt from, or not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the Notes and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation or sale is prohibited.
