Refinancing 2005 Transactions
On June 4, 2002, the Company issued $850.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 11.0% mortgage notes due 2010 (the Mortgage Notes) and on August 20, 2004, LVSI and Venetian entered into a $1.010 billion Senior Secured Credit Facility (the Prior Senior Secured Credit Facility).
On February 1, 2005, the Company closed the exercise of an equity claw back under the Mortgage Notes indenture pursuant to which the Company retired $291.1 million of the Mortgage Notes and paid $32.0 million of redemption premiums with the proceeds from its initial public offering.
On February 10, 2005, the Company sold in a private placement transaction $250.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.375% Senior Notes due 2015 (the Senior Notes) with an original issue discount of $2.3 million. Net proceeds after offering costs and original issue discount were $244.8 million.
On February 22, 2005, LVSI and Venetian amended and restated their $1.010 billion Prior Senior Secured Credit Facility. The amended Senior Secured Credit Facility consists of a $970.0 million funded term loan, a $200.0 million Term B Delayed Draw Facility available until August 20, 2005 and a $450.0 million revolving credit facility.
On February 22, 2005, LVSI and Venetian retired $542.3 million in aggregate principal amount of their Mortgage Notes pursuant to a tender offer plus a make-whole premium and accrued interest of $90.3 million, with proceeds from the Senior Notes offering, initial public offering cash on hand and proceeds from the amended Senior Secured Credit Facility. On March 24, 2005, LVSI and Venetian redeemed the remaining $10.2 million aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 11% Mortgage Notes plus a make-whole premium and accrued interest of $1.7 million with cash on hand.
The Company incurred a charge of $132.8 million for loss on early retirement of indebtedness during the first quarter of 2005 as a result of retiring the 11% Mortgage Notes.
On May 13, 2005, we called the Venetian Macao Senior Secured Notes for redemption at 100% of their principle amount plus accrued but unpaid interest to their redemption on May 23, 2005.
