RICHMOND, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE:OMI) (the “Company”) announced today the upsize and pricing of its private offering (the “Offering”) of $600 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.625% senior notes due 2030 (the “Notes”), representing an increase of $100 million aggregate principal amount from the previously announced offering size. The Offering is expected to close on March 29, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes will bear interest at the rate of 6.625% per year. The Notes will mature on March 31, 2030. The Notes were offered at a price of 100% of their principal amount.
Unless the Acquisition (as defined below) is consummated concurrently with or promptly following the closing of the Offering, the Company will deposit the gross proceeds from the Offering into a segregated escrow account until the date that certain escrow release conditions, including the consummation of the Acquisition, have been satisfied. The consummation of the Acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including the adoption of the Acquisition agreement by the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Apria common stock.
Upon the closing of the Offering or, if applicable, upon satisfaction of the escrow conditions, the Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering, together with cash on hand and proceeds from expected borrowings under one or more new term loans, to finance the consummation of the previously announced acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of Apria, Inc. (“Apria”) and the other transactions contemplated by the Acquisition agreement, to repay Apria debt, and to pay related fees and expenses. Any remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.
The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), any state securities laws or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States, or for the benefit of U.S. persons, except pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities or blue sky laws. Accordingly, the Notes were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers,” as that term is defined under Rule 144A of the Securities Act, or outside the United States to non-“U.S. persons” in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
A confidential offering memorandum for the Offering has been made available to such eligible persons. The Offering is being conducted in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in such confidential offering memorandum.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities. No offer, solicitation, purchase or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. Any offer, or solicitation to buy, if at all, will be made only by means of a confidential offering memorandum. The Offering is not conditioned on the consummation of the Acquisition, which, if consummated, may occur subsequent to the closing of the Offering. This press release does not constitute a notice of repayment of outstanding indebtedness of Apria. The terms and conditions of the new term loans have not been finalized and are therefore subject to change. The completion of the Offering is not conditioned upon our entering into the new term loans, and our entering into the new term loans is not conditioned upon completion of the Offering.
