Veritas' $750 Million Notes Offering
The offering consisted of $750 million of 7.5% Senior Secured Notes due 2025 issued by Veritas US Inc. and Veritas Bermuda Ltd. (collectively, “Veritas”). The notes were issued under the same indenture as the $1 billion aggregate principal amount of 7.5% Senior Notes due 2025 by Veritas which were issued on August 20, 2020 and constitute part of the same series as such notes.
The net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, were used to satisfy and discharge Veritas’s obligations under its existing secured indenture by depositing with the applicable agents under the existing secured indenture sufficient funds to redeem Veritas’s existing 2023 secured notes on February 1, 2021. The offering of the Senior Secured Notes was upsized from the previously announced size of $500 million.
