Allegiant Travel 5.5% bonds yield 4.879%

Allegiant Travel has issued an additional $150 million of its 5.5% notes due 2019.

The notes were issued at a price of 101.5% of the principal amount, plus accrued interest from July 15, 2016. The total aggregate principal amount outstanding following the offering will be $450 million.

The notes will be consolidated, form a single series, and be fully fungible with the outstanding 5.50% senior notes due 2019 issued on June 25, 2014 and will be general unsecured senior obligations of the company, guaranteed by all of the company’s wholly owned domestic subsidiaries, and will rank equal in right of payment with all existing or future senior unsecured indebtedness of the company and each guarantor.

Allegiant intends to use the net proceeds for general corporate purposes. Goldman Sachs is the sole book-running manager for the offering of the notes.

Allegiant originally printed $300 million of the notes in June 2014. Last month, the issuer attempted to place $300 million of new seven-year (non-call three) bonds, but pulled the offering, citing “adverse market conditions”.
