Matson, Inc. to Issue $75 Million of 30-Year Senior Unsecured Notes and Amends its Existing Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

Matson, Inc. announced that it has entered into a private placement agreement pursuant to which Matson expects to issue $75 million of 30-year senior unsecured notes. The notes will have a weighted average life of approximately 13 years and will bear interest at a rate of 3.92%, payable semi-annually. The notes are expected to be issued in September 2015, subject to satisfying customary closing conditions, and the proceeds are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include paying down the company's revolving credit facility. The notes have financial and other covenants that are substantially the same as the covenants in the company's existing outstanding senior unsecured notes. The notes will begin to amortize in 2017, with annual principal payments of approximately $1.8 million through 2019. During the years 2020 to 2026, the annual principal payments will range between approximately $1.3 million and approximately $8.0 million. Starting in 2027, and in each year thereafter, annual principal payments will be approximately $1.5 million. Matson announced that it has entered into amendments to its existing unsecured revolving credit facility and long-term private debt note agreements. The company's existing $375 million unsecured revolving credit facility with a syndicate of banks was increased to $400 million and extended for a new five-year term, maturing July 2020. In addition, the new facility includes a number of amended terms, including modifications to certain definitions and covenants and an improvement in the consolidated leverage ratio used for pricing purposes to incorporate a net debt (rather than total debt) standard. Bank of America, N. A remains as Administrative Agent, and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and First Hawaiian Bank continue to serve as joint lead arrangers for the amended and extended revolving credit facility. Matson entered into a number of amendments to its existing note purchase agreements, including modifications to certain definitions and covenants. Outstanding borrowings under these agreements are currently $200.4 million and $100 million, respectively. Interest rates and other substantive terms remain unchanged.
