Twin River secures $275 million of additional financing

30 April 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. announced today that it had successfully syndicated an expansion to the term loan facility in its existing bank credit agreement by $275 million. Funding, which is expected to occur on 11 May 2020, is subject to final documentation and customary conditions.

Borrowings under the expanded term loan facility will bear interest at LIBOR + 8.00% per annum through the 2026 maturity date. The loan will be issued with an original issue discount of 97 and will be non-callable for 18 months. After 18 months the loan is callable at a price of 104.5% of par, and after 30 months the loan is callable at par.

The financing is expected to satisfy the financing contingency under Twin River's previously announced agreement to acquire the Eldorado Resort Casino - Shreveport and the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa. As the regulatory approval process for those transactions will take some time, Twin River intends to repay $250 million of revolving credit borrowings under the bank credit facility, which will be available for future borrowings in accordance with the credit agreement.

Giving effect to the additional term loan and revolver repayment, Twin River had in excess of $385 million in cash on hand at 31 March 2020 and $250 million of revolving credit borrowing capacity, and no substantial maturities before 2024. The additional liquidity provided by the expanded term loan facility will nearly double Twin River's liquidity profile in the form of excess cash and revolver availability.

"While we remain optimistic about reopening, this additional financing ensures we have the financial resources necessary to continue funding operations, servicing our obligations, and pursing organic and strategic growth opportunities through the COVID-19 crisis," said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to further enhancing our financial profile and expanding our geographic presence."
