PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) today announced the pricing of $500 million in aggregate principal amount of 4.50% senior notes due 2029 (the «senior notes»), an increase of $100 million from the previously announced amount, in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the «Securities Act»).
The senior notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis, jointly and severally, by all of Dycom’s domestic subsidiaries that guarantee its senior credit facility. The senior notes will bear interest at 4.50% per annum payable semi-annually in arrears and will mature on April 15, 2029, unless repurchased or redeemed in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Dycom expects to close the offering on or about April 1, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The senior notes are being offered and sold only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The senior notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any applicable state or foreign securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
Dycom intends to use $66.3 million of the net proceeds of the senior notes offering for the repayment of amounts outstanding under the term loan portion of the Company’s existing senior credit facility, $105.0 million for the repayment of outstanding borrowings under the revolving portion of the existing senior credit facility, $58.3 million for the repayment in full of its outstanding 0.75% convertible senior notes due 2021 at maturity in September 2021 and any remaining net proceeds for working capital and general corporate purposes.
Concurrently with the senior notes offering, Dycom has received commitments to amend its existing senior credit facility to, among other things, provide for a five year, senior credit facility, consisting of a $650.0 million revolving credit facility and a $350.0 million term loan. Dycom expects the senior notes offering and the amendment to its senior credit facility to close concurrently on April 1, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions and necessary approvals.
