Hamilton Sundstrand Said to Lower Rate on $1.68 Billion Loan

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Hamilton Sundstrand Industrial is seeking to lower the rate it pays on a $1.68 billion covenant-lite term loan, according to a person with knowledge of the transaction.

The interest rate on the debt will be reduced to 3 percentage points more than the London interbank offered rate and will be sold at par, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Libor, a rate banks say they can borrow in dollars from each other, will have a 1.25 percent floor.

Deutsche Bank AG is arranging the transaction and investors have until Jan. 30 to let the bank know if they will participate in the deal, according to the person.

The company’s existing term loan pays interest at 3.75 percentage points more than Libor, with a 1.25 percent floor, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The debt was sold to investors at 99 cents on the dollar and was quoted at 102 cents today, the data show.

BC Partners Ltd. and Carlyle Group purchased the provider of industrial solutions and aftermarket parts and services from Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp. for $3.46 billion, Bloomberg data show.
