St. Cloud, Minnesota – August 4, 2021 – Jefferson Capital Holdings LLC (“Jefferson Capital” or the “Company”), a leading purchaser and servicer of consumer charged off and bankruptcy receivables, today announced the closing of a private offering (the “Private Offering”) of $300 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Notes”).
Jefferson Capital intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay borrowings under its existing Revolving Credit Facility and borrowings under its Second Lien Term Loan, to fund a distribution to the Company’s shareholders and the remainder, if any, for general corporate purposes.
The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior unsecured basis by certain wholly owned restricted subsidiaries of the Company.
The Notes and the guarantees were offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws. The notes and the guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws and foreign securities laws.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes and related guarantees, nor shall there be any sales of the Notes in any state or other 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.
