Steris Corp. Enters into Note Purchase Agreement

On May 15, 2015, STERIS Corporation entered into a note purchase agreement with various institutional investors, providing for the private issuance and sale on the same date by the company of $350 million in aggregate principal amount of the company’s series A senior notes (the senior notes). The company’s obligations under the note purchase agreement and the senior notes are unsecured but guaranteed by certain of the company’s domestic subsidiaries pursuant to an affiliate guaranty. The net proceeds of the sales will be used to repay debt and for other corporate purposes. On May 15, 2015, the company repaid all outstanding debt under its bank credit facility. A total of $690 million of fixed rate debt of the company was outstanding after giving effect to the sale of the senior notes. The weighted average maturity and interest rates of the senior notes are approximately 12.1 years and 3.56% respectively. The senior notes are payable in full together with accrued and unpaid interest at their specified maturities or are payable in whole or in part on such earlier dates as may be required or permitted by the terms of the note purchase agreement. Interest on the senior notes accrues from May 15, 2015 and is payable in arrears, beginning in November, 2015 and every 6 months thereafter. Depending on the circumstances, a prepayment penalty may be payable for prepayments made prior to stated maturity. The note purchase agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants, including restrictions on liens, limitations on dispositions, leverage limitations and interest coverage requirements. The note purchase agreement also contains customary events of default, which include payment and other covenant defaults, breaches of representations and warranties, certain defaults in respect of other material indebtedness and certain ERISA defaults or failures to pay money judgments. Upon the occurrence of any of these events the company’s payment obligations under the senior notes could be accelerated. As a result of the execution of the note purchase agreement and issuance of the senior notes, under the terms of the amended and Restated 364-Day Bridge credit agreement dated March 31, 2015 of the company and New STERIS Limited with Bank of America, N.A. as administrative agent and the lenders party thereto, the commitments of the Bridge Agreement lenders were reduced by $297.45 million. This resulted in new Bridge Agreement commitments of $232.55 million and $340 million.
