We advised the initial purchasers on the secured high-yield debt offering and the lead arrangers on the new credit agreement

We advised the initial purchasers in a Rule 144A / Regulation S offering of $415 million aggregate principal amount of 5.375% senior secured notes due 2026 by MoneyGram International, Inc (“MoneyGram”). We simultaneously advised the joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners, in connection with a new $432.5 million senior secured credit facility for MoneyGram, which consists of a $400 million term loan facility and a $32.5 million revolving facility. The proceeds of the notes offering and the term loan facility were used to prepay the full amount of first lien and second lien indebtedness under MoneyGram’s existing senior secured credit facilities, and to pay related accrued interest, fees and expenses.
