omega protein corp (OME) Key Developments

Omega Reviews Strategic Alternatives

Omega Protein Corporation (NYSE:OME) announced that its Board of Directors is in the process of a review of strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value, including a possible share repurchase program, sale, merger, spin-off or other separation of a selected business or other form of business combination or strategic transaction. J.P. Morgan Securities, LLC is serving as financial advisor in connection with this review. Omega Protein's Board of Directors has set no timetable for the strategic review process. Further, the Board of Directors has not made a decision to pursue any particular transaction. There can be no assurance that the process described above will result in the consummation of any transaction or, if a transaction is undertaken, as to its terms, structure or timing. Omega Protein does not intend to disclose or comment on further developments regarding the review of strategic alternatives unless and until the Board of Directors approves a specific action or otherwise concludes its review. "We are confident in our strategic plan and are encouraged by the progress that we have made in expanding our nutritional proteins and oils platform beyond menhaden," Gary Goodwin, Chairman of the Board, said. "At the same time, the Board of Directors and management team is committed to acting in the best interests of all of our shareholders and are actively seeking additional means to enhance shareholder value. We have determined that it is appropriate to conduct a strategic review with the assistance of our financial advisor that evaluates Omega Protein's long-term business plan against a broad range of alternatives that may have the potential to enhance shareholder value."

Omega Protein Enters into New $125 Million Revolving Credit Facility

Omega Protein Corporation announced that it has entered into a new $125 million revolving credit agreement, which matures in August 2020. This new credit facility replaces both the Company's $70 million credit facility and Bioriginal Canada's $20 million Canadian dollar facility, and is expected to lower aggregate revolving credit facility costs. The Company also announced that it has prepaid $8.4 million of Title XI loans, with coupons ranging from 6.5% to 7.0% and maturity dates occurring through 2020, using borrowings from the new facility. The Company expects that these actions will result in interest expense savings of approximately $0.4 million to $0.6 million over the next twelve months (excluding the impact of writing off approximately $0.1 million of deferred financing costs associated with the retired Title XI debt).
