MONTGOMERY, Texas, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Kodiak Gas Services, Inc. (NYSE: KGS) ("Kodiak", "we" or the "Company") today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kodiak Gas Services, LLC (the "Issuer"), priced its previously announced private offering (the "Offering") of $750 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.250% senior unsecured notes due 2029 (the "Notes"). The Notes will have a maturity date of February 15, 2029. The Offering is expected to close on February 2, 2024, subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes will be issued at par and will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the Company, its existing subsidiaries and certain of its future U.S. subsidiaries that guarantee the Issuer's revolving asset-based loan credit facility (the "ABL Facility").
The Issuer intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to repay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under the ABL Facility and to pay related fees, costs, premiums and expenses in connection therewith and with the closing of the Company's previously announced acquisition of CSI Compressco LP (the "CSI Acquisition"). In connection with closing of the CSI Acquisition, the Company intends, using proceeds from additional draws on the ABL Facility, to repay, terminate and/or redeem all of CSI's existing long-term indebtedness.
The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or under any state or other securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States, or to or for the account or benefit of any U.S. person, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The Notes are being offered only to persons who are either reasonably believed to be "qualified institutional buyers" under Rule 144A or who are non-"U.S. persons" under Regulation S as defined under applicable securities laws.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. This news release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
