SBM Offshore prices US$850 million senior secured notes transaction
February 9, 2021
SBM Offshore is pleased to announce the successful pricing of an US$850 million non-recourse senior secured notes transaction in a 144A/Reg S offering by a subsidiary company. The issuer of the notes is Guara Norte S.à r.l. (Guara Norte), which owns the FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela. SBM Offshore owns 75% of the equity in Guara Norte and the remaining 25% equity is held by Mitsubishi Corporation. The transaction is expected to close on February 11, 2021 at which date the notes will be issued and settlement will occur.
The notes are rated Ba1 (Moody’s) and BB+ (Fitch) and were priced at 99.995% of par value with a 5.198% fixed coupon which is paid semi-annually. The notes are fully amortizing over the 13.5 years tenor. The notes will trade at the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX). The deal was significantly oversubscribed.
This is SBM Offfshore’s first issuance of a 144A/Reg S bond and as such this offering further diversifies its sourcing for project debt. Proceeds will be used to repay existing bank debt (approximately US$535 million, with a remaining tenor of approximately 4 years), unwind the existing hedge arrangements and pay for transaction related expenses (combined approximately US$35 million). The remaining cash (approximately US$280 million) will be distributed to Guara Norte’s shareholders.
The notes are being sold to qualified institutional buyers in the United States in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
