Proposed term loan refinancing


Micro Focus International plc ("Micro Focus" or the "Company") today announces the launch of a $1,435m-equivalent Senior Secured Term Loan B refinancing and extension of the existing $500m Revolving Credit Facility ("RCF") (the "Transaction").

The proceeds of the offering will be used to refinance its existing Senior Secured Term Loan B due November 2021 and pay fees and expenses in connection with the Transaction. Upon completion, the Transaction will replace the existing Senior Secured Term Loan B facility due November 2021 with a new 7-year Senior Secured Term Loan B facility and extend the existing $500m "RCF" due September 2022 to June 2024.

The Company will raise a combination of Euro and US dollar dominated Term Loans with a minimum intended tranche size of €500m in Euros and $500m in US dollars. The initial price talk for the new facilities is anticipated to be between 3.25% - 3.50% above  EURIBOR at an original issue discount of 0.5% on the Euro Tranche and between 3.75%-4.0% above LIBOR at an original issue discount of 1.0% on US Dollar denominated tranche.

An update will follow in due course.
