ClubCorp announces plan to reduce leverage

Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp CEO said, "We delivered our tenth quarter of consecutive revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth. Since going public we have grown revenue and adjusted EBITDA by over 30% by implementing a successful three pronged strategy focused on organic growth, reinvention and acquisitions. Part of this strategy anticipated reinvention of clubs we acquired in 2014 and 2015. Much of this planned investment is now complete. As a result, the Company is now prepared to de-lever its balance sheet below 4.0x. We plan to de-lever our balance sheet by continuing to grow adjusted EBITDA, reducing capital spend, including fewer planned same-store reinventions in 2017, and using excess cash to pay down debt." CFO Curt McClellan said, "Our leverage is currently 4.4x and we are initiating a strategy to de-lever the company below 4x over the next 12-18 months. We will continue to pursue value enhancing acquisitions including individually-owned and member-owned clubs, yet we do not anticipate any near term levering event for the company. Additionally, we have actively taken steps towards this objective by lowering future interest expense by refinancing certain of our mortgage debt and repricing our term loan facility this quarter."
