SALT LAKE CITY, October 1, 2020 – Varex Imaging Corporation (Nasdaq: VREX) today announced it has closed its private offering (the “Offering”) of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 7.875% senior secured notes due 2027 (the “notes”) at an offering price of 100% of the principal amount thereof. Simultaneously, Varex entered into a senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility (the “ABL Credit Facility”) in an initial aggregate principal amount of up to $100 million.
“We are pleased to have successfully closed the notes offering and the new credit facility. Using net proceeds from the notes transaction, we have fully paid-off our previous credit facility. Accordingly, the specific factors associated with our prior credit facility that led to a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern have now been resolved,” said Sunny Sanyal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Varex Imaging Corporation. “The remaining net proceeds from the notes offering have been added to our cash balance and are expected to be used for general corporate purposes,” added Sanyal.
Additional information concerning the notes and ABL Credit Facility are disclosed in Varex’s Form 8-K filed today, September 30, 2020.
