JPMorgan Chase Arranges $350MM Credit Facility for Lantheus Holdings

Lantheus Holdings, Inc., parent company of Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc., announced the closing of a new $275 million term loan facility and a new $75 million five-year cash-flow revolver facility.

Net proceeds from the new term loan, together with approximately $15 million of cash on hand, were used to retire the remaining outstanding principal balance on the Company’s previous $365 million term loan facility and pay accrued interest and related fees and expenses attributable to the transaction.

The new term loan has an interest rate of LIBOR + 4.50% and retains the prior term loan’s maturity date of June 2022 as well as its 1% mandatory amortization per year, adjusted to reflect the new principal amount. The new term loan was issued at an original issue discount of 99.75%.

The CFR is priced at LIBOR + 3.50% and replaces the $50 million asset backed loan (“ABL”) facility, which was undrawn at the time of closing of the refinancing. The CFR carries the same 0.375% unused line fee as the ABL and has an extended maturity date of March 2022. Funds available under the CFR may be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

“We remain committed to enhancing the Company’s capital structure,” commented Jack Crowley, Chief Financial Officer of Lantheus. “This transaction improves our credit profile, provides additional liquidity and gives the flexibility needed to effectively capitalize upon our strategic initiatives. As of closing, our leverage ratio continues to improve, and we believe the reduction in interest rate and amortization payments will provide a positive impact on cash flow of approximately $5 million per year over the life of the facility.”

The transaction was led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., with Citizens Bank, N.A. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acting as joint lead arrangers.
