Offering Extends the Maturity Profile of Sabre's Debt Financing

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Aug. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabre Corporation ("Sabre") (Nasdaq: SABR) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Sabre GLBL Inc. ("Sabre GLBL") upsized and priced an offering of $850,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 7.375% senior secured notes due 2025 (the "Secured Notes"), an upsize of $550,000,000 over the amount previously announced. The sale of the Secured Notes is expected to close on August 27, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

Sabre intends to use the net proceeds from this offering, after fees, discounts, commissions and other offering expenses, plus cash on hand, to (1) repay approximately $300 million principal amount of debt under its Term Loan A (scheduled to mature in July 2022), (2) redeem, repurchase or refinance all $530 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its outstanding 5.375% senior secured notes due 2023 (scheduled to mature in April, 2023) and (3) repay other secured indebtedness.  This news release does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to the April 2023 Notes.

The Secured Notes will pay interest semi-annually in arrears, at a rate of 7.375% per year, and will mature on September 1, 2025. The Secured Notes will be guaranteed by Sabre Holdings Corporation and each subsidiary that borrows under or guarantees Sabre GLBL's senior secured credit facility. The Secured Notes and the note guarantees will be secured, subject to permitted liens, by a first-priority security interest in substantially all present and hereafter acquired property and assets of Sabre GLBL and the guarantors (other than certain excluded assets).

The Secured Notes and the related note guarantees have been offered in a private offering 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 non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Secured Notes and the related note guarantees have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. The Secured Notes and the related note guarantees may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Secured Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
