GVC Holdings PLC
(“GVC” or the “Group”)
Debt Repricing and Allocation
GVC Holdings PLC (LSE:GVC), the global sports-betting and gaming group, has today announced the repricing and allocation of its existing $786m First Lien Term Loan B in USD. GVC has also taken this opportunity to simplify its debt structure and move the borrowing under GVC’s wholly owned subsidiary, GVC Holdings (Gibraltar) Limited, which is the existing borrower for the €1,125m First Lien Term Loan B issued in September 2019. This is a leverage neutral transaction.
The new USD Term Loan B’s pricing is USD LIBOR+225bps1 and was allocated at par, which represents a saving of 25bps versus the existing pricing.
GVC’s CFO, Rob Wood, commented:
“The repricing is another demonstration of the Group’s increasing standing in the international debt markets, and I would like to personally thank our lenders for their continued support.”
