Pep Boys Closes $200 Million Term Loan - Reduces Long-Term Debt by $95 Million

 

PHILADELPHIA (October 12, 2012 ) -- The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: PBY), the nation’s leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain, today announced that it had closed on its amended and restated term loan facility.


The amended and restated facility is in the principal amount of $200,000,000, bears interest at LIBOR (with a floor of 1.25%) plus 3.75%, matures on October 11, 2018 and is secured by the real estate underlying 142 of the Company’s owned stores. In connection with the facility, the Company entered into interest rate swaps that convert the variable LIBOR portion of the interest payments due on $100,000,000 of the facility to a fixed rate of 1.855%.


Proceeds from the increase in the size of the facility (approximately $53,000,000) together with cash on hand were used to satisfy and discharge all of the Company's outstanding 7.5% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (approximately $148,000,000) and to settle the Company's outstanding interest rate swap (approximately $8,000,000).


Pro forma for the transaction, the Company has reduced its long-term debt by approximately $100,000,000 and reduced its annual interest expense by approximately $11,000,000.


Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and BofA Merrill Lynch served as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Book Runners on the transaction.
