UGI Corporation (“UGI” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UGI) announced today that its indirect, wholly owned subsidiary, UGI International, LLC (“UGI International”), intends to offer €400,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”) to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain subsidiaries of UGI International that guarantee UGI International’s obligations under its existing €300,000,000 senior unsecured term loan facility and its existing €300,000,000 senior unsecured revolving credit facility, but will not be guaranteed by the Company. UGI International expects to use the net proceeds of the offering to redeem its €350,000,000 principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2025 in full and to pay fees and expenses in connection with the offering, and the remainder will be used for general corporate purposes and/or be distributed to the Company. The Notes offering is subject to market conditions.
The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
