|Item 8.01|| |
On October 2, 2018, Intelsat S.A. (Intelsat) issued a press release announcing that Intelsat Jackson Holdings S.A. (Intelsat Jackson), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Intelsat, intends to offer an additional $700 million aggregate principal amount of 8.500% senior notes due 2024 (the Notes) in a new private offering. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein. The Notes will be issued pursuant to an indenture dated September 19, 2018, among Intelsat Jackson, as issuer, the guarantors party thereto, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the Indenture). Intelsat Jackson had previously issued $2,250 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.500% senior notes due 2024 under the Indenture (the Existing Notes). The Notes constitute a further issuance of, and will be fungible with, the Existing Notes (except for any Notes sold pursuant to Regulation S for a period of 40 days after the issue date) and will be treated as a single series of securities for all purposes under the Indenture.
In connection with the offering of the Notes, Intelsat Jackson expects to issue a conditional notice of redemption to holders of its outstanding 7.500% senior notes due 2021.
Intelsat Safe Harbor Statement
Statements in this Report on Form 6-K constitute forward-looking statements that do not directly or exclusively relate to historical facts. When used in this document, the words may, will, might, should, expect, plan, anticipate, project, believe, estimate, predict, intend, potential, outlook, and continue, and the negative of these terms, and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements and information.
The forward-looking statements reflect Intelsats intentions, plans, expectations, anticipations, projections, estimations, predictions, assumptions and beliefs about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of Intelsats control. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements include known and unknown risks. Known risks include, among others, market conditions, potential judicial decisions regarding our compliance with our debt agreements and the risks described in Intelsats annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2017, and its other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Because actual results could differ materially from Intelsats intentions, plans, expectations, anticipations, projections, estimations, predictions, assumptions and beliefs about the future, you are urged to view all forward-looking statements with caution. Intelsat does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
The Notes referred to above will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), and to persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act and applicable exemptions from registration, prospectus or like requirements under the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions outside the United States. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes referred to above will also not be registered in any jurisdiction outside of the United States and no action or steps will be taken to permit the offer of the Notes in any such jurisdiction where any registration or other action or steps would be required to permit an offer of the Notes.
The Notes may therefore not be offered or sold in any such jurisdiction except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the relevant requirements of laws and regulations of such jurisdictions.
No prospectus as required by the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the implementing laws and regulations in the relevant member states) has been filed with respect to the Notes and therefore no offers of Notes may be made in any Member States of the European Economic Area unless made pursuant to an exemption under the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the implementing laws and regulations in the relevant Member States).
