HOUSTON, Dec. 14, 2020
HOUSTON, Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Talos Energy Inc. ("Talos Energy") (NYSE: TALO) today announced that Talos Production Inc. (the "Company"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Talos Energy, has commenced an offering (the "Offering") of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of new Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2026 (the "New Notes"). The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to (i) fund the redemption (the "Redemption") of all of the outstanding 11.00% Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2022 issued by the Company and Talos Production Finance Inc. (the "2022 Notes") and (ii) pay any premiums, fees and expenses related to the Redemption and the issuance of the New Notes. The Company intends to use any remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment of a portion of the outstanding borrowings under its reserves-based lending facility.
It is expected that the New Notes will be guaranteed on a senior basis by Talos Energy and certain of the Company's subsidiaries and initially be secured on a second-priority basis by substantially the same collateral as the Company's existing first-priority obligations under its senior reserve-based revolving credit facility.
The New Notes are being offered in the United States only 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 to persons outside the United States only in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security, nor shall there be any sale of the New Notes or any other security of the Company, in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption under the optional redemption provisions of the indenture governing the 2022 Notes.
