|FelCor Announces Proposed Senior Notes Offering|
IRVING, Texas, Apr 26, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated (NYSE: FCH) and its subsidiary FelCor Lodging Limited Partnership ("FelCor LP"), today announced that FelCor LP's wholly-owned subsidiary intends to offer, subject to market conditions, $500 million of senior secured notes. The senior secured notes will be offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to persons outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act. The pricing and terms are to be determined. The proceeds of the offering will be placed in escrow pending FelCor LP's acquisition of Royalton and Morgans, at which time the notes will be assumed by FelCor LP and the proceeds will be released from escrow. If the notes are not assumed by FelCor LP within 60 days following the closing, the issuer will redeem the notes at par, plus accrued and unpaid interest.
FelCor intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the pending acquisition of Royalton and Morgans in midtown Manhattan and otherwise for general corporate purposes (including, among other things, repaying existing indebtedness and funding future hotel acquisitions). Pending application of the net proceeds, they may be invested in short-term, interest bearing investments.
The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase these securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
