Encore Capital Group, Inc. Announces Proposed Senior Secured Floating Rate Notes Offering

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encore Capital Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECPG) (the “Company”) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, €100.0 million aggregate principal amount of its senior secured floating rate notes due 2028 (the “notes”) in a private offering 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 (within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act).

The notes will be issued as "additional notes" under the Company's existing notes indenture dated December 21, 2020, and will have the same terms as the Company's currently outstanding senior secured floating rate notes due 2028. The Notes will bear interest at a rate equal to the sum of (i) three-month EURIBOR (subject to a 0% floor) plus (ii) 4.250% per annum, reset quarterly. The Issuer will pay interest on the Notes quarterly in arrears on January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing on January 15, 2024. The Notes will mature on January 15, 2028. The notes will be senior secured obligations of the Company, and will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior secured basis by substantially all material subsidiaries of the Company. The obligations of the Company and the guarantors will be secured, together with the Company’s other senior secured indebtedness, by substantially all of the assets of the Company and the guarantors. The issue price of the notes will be determined at the pricing of the offering.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from this offering to repay drawings under its revolving credit facility, and to pay certain transaction fees and expenses incurred in connection with the offering of the notes.

The offer and sale of the notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act, and the notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, the notes nor will there be any sale of the notes in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful. Any offer of the securities will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum.

On a year-to-date basis through August 31, 2023 the Company's global cash collections performance compared to its reported December 31, 2022 ERC forecast was generally in line with the first half of the year. As of August 31, 2023, the Company's leverage remained 2.8x.1
