ALLEGIANT TRAVEL COMPANY COMPLETES SENIOR SECURED DEBT REFINANCING

Published: Aug. 18, 2022 at 9:30 AM EDT

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Allegiant Travel Company (NASDAQ: ALGT) today closed its private offering and issued $550.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 7.250% Senior Secured Notes due 2027 (the "Notes").

(PRNewswire)

Each of the company's subsidiaries guaranteed the Notes, other than Dustland, LLC, Sunseeker Resorts, Inc. and its subsidiaries and certain other insignificant subsidiaries.  The Notes and the related guarantees are secured by security interests in substantially all the property and assets of the company and the guarantors of the Notes, excluding aircraft, aircraft engines, real property, and certain other assets.  The collateral that secures the Notes also secures the company's existing $150.0 million 8.500% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the "Existing Notes") and the company's new Revolving Credit Facility (defined below) on a pari passu basis. Combining the aggregate principal amount of the Notes with the aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes, the company has approximately $700 million of debt secured by such collateral.

The company used the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes to repay the company's Term Loan B, which had an outstanding principal amount of $533 million, and to pay costs and expenses of the transaction and will use the balance for general corporate purposes.

"This debt refinancing puts Allegiant in a strong position for the future, as it gives us the liquidity profile to execute on our growth strategy," said the company's President and CFO Gregory C. Anderson. "The call feature in this transaction provides valuable flexibility as we navigate through the current interest rate environment while ensuring a robust capital structure to support our business initiatives."

The company also entered into a credit agreement that provides a senior secured revolving loan facility of up to $75.0 million (the "Revolving Credit Facility"). The Company's obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility will be guaranteed by the same guarantors that guarantee the Notes and will be secured by the same collateral that secures the Notes. The Notes and Revolving Credit Facility together provide $625 million in liquidity secured by such collateral at a current blended rate of 6.4% while undrawn.

The new revolving credit facility from Barclays, along with existing revolving credit facilities from MUFG Bank and Credit Agricole, will give Allegiant over $1.4 billion in available liquidity.

The Notes and the related guarantees have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction. The Notes and the related guarantees were offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act ("Rule 144A") and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
