SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) (the "Company") announced today that it priced an offering (the "Offering") of $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 7.750% Senior Notes due 2028 (the "Notes"). The issuance and sale of the Notes is expected to be completed on February 17, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of the Company's wholly-owned existing and future domestic subsidiaries. The Notes (i) will rank pari passu in right of payment with all existing and future senior indebtedness of the Company, (ii) will be senior in right of payment to all of the future subordinated indebtedness of the Company and the guarantors; (iii) will be effectively subordinated to all of the Company's existing and future indebtedness secured by a lien, to the extent of the value of such collateral and (iv) will be structurally subordinated to any existing and future obligations of any existing or future subsidiaries of the Company that do not guarantee the Notes, including all of the Company's foreign subsidiaries.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Notes, together with cash on hand, to (i) cause Clear Channel Worldwide Holdings, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company ("CCWH"), to redeem (the "Redemption") $940,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 9.25% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Existing Senior Notes") and (ii) pay related transaction fees and expenses. As previously announced, on January 28, 2021, CCWH directed U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee of the Existing Senior Notes, to deliver a conditional notice of redemption to redeem up to $940,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Existing Senior Notes for payment on March 4, 2021. The Redemption is conditioned on the closing of the Offering and the receipt of net proceeds therefrom in an amount sufficient to pay the redemption price. The conditional notice of redemption may be rescinded or amended if necessary.
The Notes and related guarantees are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be "qualified institutional buyers" in reliance on the exemption from registration pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to persons outside of the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. 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 in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from the Securities Act and applicable state securities and foreign securities laws.
