(NYSE: NSM) (“Nationstar”), a leading residential mortgage services company, today announced the pricing of $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 6.500% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”) offered by its wholly-owned subsidiaries Nationstar Mortgage LLC (the “Company”) and Nationstar Capital Corporation (together with the Company, the “Issuers”). The Notes will be issued in a private placement and carry a coupon of 6.500% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears, beginning July 1, 2013. The offering is expected to close on February 7, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes will be unsecured and will be guaranteed on a senior basis by Nationstar, Nationstar Sub1 LLC, Nationstar Sub2 LLC and certain of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries.
The Issuers will use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include future acquisitions and transfers of servicing portfolios, including, but not limited to, the acquisition of certain residential mortgage servicing assets from Bank of America, National Association, and/or related businesses from third parties, including, but not limited to, from one or more affiliates of the initial purchasers in this offering.
The Notes and related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws. Accordingly, the Notes are being offered and sold only to “qualified institutional buyers” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act) and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in offshore transactions in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. Therefore, the Notes will be subject to restrictions on transferability and resale, and may not be transferred or resold absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements of the Securities Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to purchase with respect to the Notes or other securities, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or purchase would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
