Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Senior Notes Offering

On May 26, 2020, Bausch Health Companies Inc. (the "Company") completed its previously announced offering of $1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.250% Senior Notes due 2029 (the "Notes").

The Notes were offered in the United States and sold to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

The proceeds of the Notes offering, along with cash on hand, will be used to (i) fund the Company's previously announced redemption of its existing 6.500% Senior Secured Notes due 2022, (ii) fund the prepayment of the mandatory amortization for 2022 under the Company's existing term loans and (iii) pay related fees, premiums and expenses.

The Notes Indenture

The Notes were issued pursuant to the indenture, dated as of May 26, 2020 (the "Indenture"), among the Company, the guarantors named therein and The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee.

Interest and Maturity

Pursuant to the Indenture, the Notes will mature on February 15, 2029. Interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on each February 15 and August 15, beginning on August 15, 2020.

Guarantees

The Notes will initially be jointly and severally guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by each of the Company's subsidiaries that is a guarantor under the Company's existing credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement"), the Company's existing senior secured notes (the "Existing Senior Secured Notes") and the Company's existing senior unsecured notes (together, the "Note Guarantors").

Ranking

The Notes and the guarantees related thereto will be:

     •  senior unsecured obligations of the Company and the Note Guarantors, as
        applicable;


     •  pari passu in right of payment with all existing and future unsubordinated
        indebtedness of the Company and the applicable Note Guarantor;


     •  senior in right of payment to all existing and future indebtedness of the
        Company and the applicable Note Guarantor that expressly provides for its
        subordination to the Notes or the applicable guarantee;


     •  structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and
        other liabilities of the Company's subsidiaries that do not guarantee the
        Notes to the extent of the value of such subsidiaries' assets; and


     •  effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured indebtedness
        of the Company or the applicable Note Guarantor, including the Credit
        Agreement and the Existing Senior Secured Notes, to the extent of the
        value of the assets securing such indebtedness.

Redemption

The Notes will be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at any time on or after February 15, 2024, at the redemption prices as set forth in the Indenture.

In addition, the Company may redeem some or all of the Notes prior to February 15, 2024 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof plus a "make-whole" premium. Prior to August 15, 2023, the Company may redeem up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes using the net cash proceeds of certain equity offerings at the redemption price set forth in the Indenture.

Upon the occurrence of a change of control (as defined in the Indenture), unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem all of the Notes, as described above, holders of the Notes may require the Company to repurchase such holder's Notes, in whole or in part, at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the purchase date applicable to the Notes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Certain Covenants

The Indenture contains covenants that limit the ability of the Company and any of its restricted subsidiaries (as such term is defined in the Indenture), to, among other things:

  • incur or guarantee additional indebtedness;


  • make certain investments and other restricted payments;


  • create liens;


  • enter into transactions with affiliates;


  • engage in mergers, consolidations or amalgamations; and


  • transfer and sell assets.

Events of Default

The Indenture also provides for customary events of default.

The foregoing summary of the Indenture is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full and complete text of the Indenture, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an

           Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
