Valeant Announces Closes USD 750m Notes Offering
22 November 2017 - - Canadian specialty pharmaceutical company Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (NYSE: VRX) (TSX: VRX) has closed an offering of USD 750m aggregate principal amount of its 5.500% senior secured notes due 2025, the company said.

The notes are additional notes and form part of the same series as Valeant's existing 5.500% senior secured notes due 2025.

Subsequent to the closing of the offering and the related prepayment, the company successfully completed the repricing of its Series F Tranche B Term Loans.

The amendment reduces the annual interest rate on the Series F Tranche B Term Loans by 1.25% and makes certain other changes.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of pharmaceutical products primarily in the areas of dermatology, gastrointestinal disorders, eye health, neurology and branded generics.
