Global Cash Access Holdings, Inc. Announces Proposed Private Offering of $350.0 Million of Senior Secured Notes and $350.0 Million of Senior Unsecured Notes


LAS VEGAS, Dec. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Cash Access Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:GCA) ("GCA") announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Global Cash Access, Inc. (the "Company"), intends, subject to market and other conditions, to offer $350.0 million of senior secured notes due 2021 (the "Secured Notes") and $350.0 million of senior unsecured notes due 2022 (the "Unsecured Notes," and together with the Secured Notes, the "Notes") in a private offering.

GCA intends to use the net proceeds of the Notes offering, together with borrowings under a new $60.0 million, five-year senior secured revolving credit facility and a $500.0 million, six-year senior secured term loan, and cash on hand to finance its acquisition (the "Multimedia Games Acquisition") of Multimedia Games Holding Company, Inc. (Nasdaq:MGAM) ("Multimedia Games"), including the repayment of certain indebtedness of GCA and Multimedia Games and to pay related fees and expenses. The Notes are initially expected to be issued by the Company's subsidiary, Movie Escrow, Inc.

Upon consummation of the Multimedia Games Acquisition, the Notes will be assumed by the Company and guaranteed on a senior basis by GCA and certain of its subsidiaries. The Secured Notes will be secured by liens on the same collateral that secures indebtedness under the revolving credit facility and the term loan.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act") or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A and to non-U.S. Persons under Regulation S under the Securities Act.

This press release does not and will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor will there be any sale of the Notes in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
