Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On August 10, 2010, Regal Entertainment Group (the "Company") entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Barclays Capital Inc., Banc of America Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as the representatives of the underwriters named on Schedule A thereto (the "Underwriters"), with respect to the Company's issuance and sale of $275.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company's 9.125% senior notes due 2018 (the "Notes"). The Underwriting Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities.
The Notes will be issued under an Indenture (the "Indenture") to be entered into by and between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee.
The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 9.125% per year, payable semiannually in arrears in cash on February 15 and August 15 of each year. The Notes mature on August 15, 2018. The Notes will be the Company's senior unsecured obligations. They will rank on parity with all of the Company's existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and prior to all of the Company's subordinated indebtedness. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of the Company's future secured indebtedness to the extent of the assets securing that indebtedness and to any indebtedness and other liabilities of the Company's subsidiaries. None of the Company's subsidiaries will initially guarantee any of the Company's obligations with respect to the Notes.
Prior to August 15, 2014, the Company may redeem all or any part of the Notes at its option at 100% of the principal amount plus a make-whole premium. The Company may redeem the Notes in whole or in part at any time on or after August 15, 2014 at the redemption prices specified in the Indenture. In addition, prior to August 15, 2013, the Company may redeem up to 35% of the original aggregate principal amount of Notes from the net proceeds of certain equity offerings at the redemption price specified in the Indenture.
If the Company undergoes a change of control (as defined in the Indenture), holders may require the Company to repurchase all or a portion of their Notes at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes being repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the repurchase date.
The Indenture will contain covenants that limit the Company's (and its restricted subsidiaries') ability to, among other things: (i) incur additional indebtedness; (ii) pay dividends on or make other distributions in respect of its capital stock, purchase or redeem capital stock, or purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire or retire certain subordinated obligations; (iii) enter into certain transactions with affiliates; (iv) permit, directly or indirectly, it to create, incur, or suffer to exist any lien, except in certain circumstances; (v) create or permit encumbrances or restrictions on its ability to pay dividends or make distributions on its capital stock, make loans or advances to its subsidiaries (or the Company), or transfer any properties or assets to its subsidiaries (or the Company); and (vi) merge or consolidate with other companies or transfer all or substantially all of its assets. These covenants are, however, subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions. The Indenture contains other customary terms, including, but not limited to, events of default, which, if any of them occurs, would permit or require the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the then outstanding Notes to be due and payable immediately.
