Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 11, 2014, Regal Entertainment Group (the Company) issued $775 million aggregate principal amount of its 53/4% senior notes due 2022 (the Notes) under an Indenture (the Base Indenture), dated as of January 17, 2013, as supplemented by the Third Supplemental Indenture (the Third Supplemental Indenture, and collectively with the Base Indenture, the Indenture), dated as of March 11, 2014, with Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee. The offering was registered pursuant to the Companys effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-182383) (the Registration Statement) and the related base prospectus included in the Registration Statement, as supplemented by the final prospectus supplement dated February 25, 2014 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 26, 2014.
The Notes bear interest at a rate of 5.75% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning September 15, 2014. The Notes will mature on March 15, 2022. The Notes will be the Companys senior unsecured obligations and will rank equal in right of payment with all of the Companys existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and prior to all of the Companys future subordinated indebtedness. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of the Companys future secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the collateral securing that indebtedness and structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities of the Companys subsidiaries. None of the Companys subsidiaries will guarantee any of the Companys obligations with respect to the Notes.
Prior to March 15, 2017, the Company may redeem all or any part of the Notes at its option at 100% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date and a make-whole premium. The Company may redeem the Notes in whole or in part at any time on or after March 15, 2017 at the redemption prices specified in the Indenture. In addition, prior to March 15, 2017, the Company may redeem up to 35% of the original aggregate principal amount of the 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 date of purchase.
The Indenture contains covenants that limit the Companys (and its restricted subsidiaries) ability to, among other things: (i) incur additional indebtedness; (ii) make distributions or certain other restricted payments; (iii) enter into certain transactions with affiliates; (iv) grant liens securing indebtedness; (v) create dividend or other payment restrictions affecting its subsidiaries; and (vi) merge or consolidate with or into 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 Third Supplemental Indenture is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing description of the terms of the Third Supplemental Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 4.1.
The disclosure set forth above under Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
In connection with the offering of the Notes, the Company is filing as Exhibit 5.1 hereto an opinion of counsel addressing the validity of the Notes. Such opinion is incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement.
