Franchise Group, Inc. Announces Withdrawal of Proposed Offering of $650 Million Senior Secured Notes

11/04/2020 | 04:05pm EST

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franchise Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRG) (“Franchise Group” or the “Company”) today announced that it has decided not to proceed with its previously announced offering of $650 million of senior secured notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) at this time as a result of unfavorable market conditions.  

Brian Kahn, the Company’s CEO, said, “Last week, we launched an opportunistic bond offering into a strong bond market. As markets have weakened substantially and we have witnessed several other issuers price transactions wide of their intended targets, we are withdrawing our proposed offering now, but will continue to evaluate our options when market conditions warrant.”

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. Any offers of the Notes were being made only by means of a confidential preliminary offering memorandum.
