LAS VEGAS, May 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) (the "Company") today announced that it has priced its previously announced offering of senior notes due 2031 (the "notes"). The aggregate principal amount of notes to be issued in the offering is $900 million. The size of the offering was increased from the previously announced $750 million aggregate principal amount. The notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.750% per annum, payable semi-annually on March 15 and September 15 of each year, commencing September 15, 2021. The notes will mature on June 15, 2031. The notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain of the Company's current and future domestic restricted subsidiaries. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on June 8, 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Company intends to use a portion of the proceeds from the offering to finance the redemption of all of its outstanding 6.375% senior notes due 2026. Concurrent with the offering, the Company also intends to redeem all of its outstanding 6.000% senior notes due 2026 using a combination of proceeds from the offering and cash on hand. The Company also plans to use a combination of proceeds from the offering and borrowings under its revolving credit facility to pay the redemption premiums, accrued and unpaid interest, fees (including the initial purchasers' fees), expenses and commissions related to this offering and the redemptions. Nothing in this press release should be construed as an offer to purchase, notice of redemption or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any of the outstanding 6.375% Notes and/or any of the 6.000% Notes, and the closing of this offering is not conditioned on the issuance of a redemption notice relating to, or the consummation of such redemptions of, the 6.375% Notes and/or the 6.000% Notes. However, the redemptions of the 6.375% Notes and the 6.000% Notes are expected to be conditioned on the consummation of this offering.

The notes being offered have not been registered under the Securities Act, or applicable state securities laws or blue sky laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or available exemptions from such registration requirements.
