Macquarie announces offering of $325M of convertible senior notes
Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation announced an underwritten public offering of $325.0M of convertible senior notes due 2023. In addition, MIC expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to $48.75M of additional convertible notes solely to cover over-allotments. The offering will be made under the company's existing shelf registration statement filed with the SEC on April 5. The company expects to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including, but not limited to, the closing of the proposed acquisition of the aviation facility at Stewart Airport in New York; the expansion of the company's Bayonne Energy Center by 130 megawatts; the closing of the proposed acquisition of the 80 megawatt Utah Red Hills solar power facility; the repayment of the outstanding balance on the company's senior secured revolving credit facility; and, if the refinancing of the existing senior secured credit agreement of the company's Atlantic Aviation business is completed, the company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering, in part, to repay a portion of the drawn revolving loan balance under the new Atlantic Aviation senior secured credit agreement. J.P. Morgan and Barclays are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
