Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 4, 2011, Regal Entertainment Group (the Company) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the Underwriting Agreement), dated January 4, 2011, between the Company and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, as underwriter (the Underwriter), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell $150.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Companys 9.125% senior notes due 2018 (the New Notes). The Underwriting Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Underwriter against certain liabilities.
The New Notes will be issued under the Indenture (the Indenture) entered into by and between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the Trustee), dated August 16, 2010, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture (the Supplemental Indenture), entered into by and between the Company and the Trustee, dated January 7, 2011. The New Notes will constitute additional securities under the Indenture and will be treated as a single series with, and will have the same terms as, and will be fungible with, the $275.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Companys 9.125% senior notes due 2018 previously issued under the Indenture on August 16, 2010 (the Existing Notes, and together with the New Notes, the Notes).
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 Companys senior unsecured obligations. They will rank on parity with all of the Companys existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and prior to all of the Companys subordinated indebtedness. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of the Companys future secured indebtedness to the extent of the assets securing that indebtedness and to any indebtedness and other liabilities of the Companys subsidiaries. None of the Companys subsidiaries will initially guarantee any of the Companys 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 contains covenants that limit the Companys (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.
A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and is incorporated by reference herein. A copy of the Indenture was attached as Exhibit 4.1 to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 18, 2010 and is incorporated by reference herein. A copy of the Supplemental Indenture is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.2 and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing descriptions of the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Indenture and the Supplemental Indenture are qualified in their entirety by reference to these exhibits.
