TAMPA, Fla. – Jan. 4, 2018 — Syniverse Holdings, Inc. (“Syniverse”) today announced that on Dec. 29, 2017, the company voluntarily redeemed $40 million aggregate principal amount of its 9.125% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “Notes”).
“This voluntary note redemption is part of Syniverse’s ongoing efforts to address the Company’s debt maturities and continue to reduce its outstanding debt,” said Bob Reich, Chief Financial Officer, Syniverse. “When combined with debt extinguishments we made earlier in the year, Syniverse reduced its outstanding debt by a total of $65.6 million in 2017.”
Pursuant to the indenture governing the Notes, the Notes were redeemed at 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of redemption. Following the completion of the redemption, $41.7 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes remains outstanding.
As a result of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes being less than $50 million, pursuant to the credit agreement governing the Company’s revolving credit facility and term loan facilities, the “springing maturity date” is no longer applicable, meaning that (1) the scheduled maturity date of the revolving credit commitments will be the earlier of (x) January 15, 2019, and (y) the date of termination in whole of the revolving credit commitments, the letter of credit sublimit, and the swing line facility, and (2) the Company’s term loan facilities will mature on April 23, 2019, unless earlier repaid or refinanced.
