Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE: TGI) (the “Company”) today announced that it has received and accepted the requisite consents with respect to the previously announced consent solicitation relating to the Company’s 4.875% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”).
The consent solicitation expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 17, 2016. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the consent solicitation set forth in the consent solicitation statement dated as of May 9, 2016, the Company will pay to each holder of Notes, a cash payment equal to $10.00 for each $1,000 aggregate principal amount of such holder’s Notes in respect of which the holder validly delivered (and did not validly revoke) a consent prior to the expiration time. The Company expects to pay the consent fees on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.
The purpose of the Consent Solicitation was to obtain Consents to amend the indenture relating to the Notes (the “Indenture”) to make such Indenture consistent with the Company’s indenture, dated as of June 3, 2014, relating to the Company’s 5.250% Senior Notes due 2022 in terms of (i) the maximum amount of debt that may be incurred and the maximum amount of liens that may be permitted under the Company’s credit facilities, with the amendment increasing both of such amounts from $1,175.0 million to $1,625.0 million, (ii) the maximum amount of capital lease obligations and purchase money debt, with the amendment increasing the permissible amount from $100.0 million to $150.0 million, and (iii) the maximum amount of debt which may be incurred pursuant to the general debt incurrence basket, with the amendment increasing the permissible amount from $25.0 million to $150.0 million.
The Company, the Guarantors, and the trustee expect to execute a supplemental indenture to the indenture to give effect to the amendments proposed by the consent solicitation, which will become operative upon the payment of the consent fee. The supplemental indenture will bind all holders of the Notes, including those that did not give their consent.
