Orbitz Completes Repricing of Term Loan Facilities

Orbitz Worldwide announced it has successfully completed the repricing of its $450 million senior secured term loan facilities. The amendment reduces annual interest rates by 2.50% on the tranche B term loans and 2.00% on the tranche C term loans (or, to the extent that the LIBOR floor is applicable, 2.75% on the tranche B term loans and 2.25% on the tranche C term loans) and reduces the LIBOR floor from 1.25% to 1.00%. The tranche B and tranche C term loans now bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 3.50% and LIBOR plus 4.75%, respectively (in each case subject to the LIBOR floor).

“The strong and accelerating performance that we indicated on our last earnings call coupled with favorable market conditions allowed us to reprice our debt agreement on significantly better terms,” said Mike Randolfi, CFO of Orbitz Worldwide. “This will provide meaningful cash savings over the coming years.”

Alongside the repricing, Orbitz Worldwide reduced the tranche B term loan maturing in September 2017 from $150 million to $100 million and increased the tranche C term loan maturing in March 2019 from $300 million to $350 million.
