Agreement with Bondholders and Lenders Provides $250 Million to Drive Growth as Aerospace Industry Recovers
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Incora announced today it has completed a comprehensive recapitalization that will provide the company with ample liquidity to maintain and expand the business as the aerospace industry rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The recapitalization, which includes an immediate liquidity infusion of $250 million, was supported by majorities across all of the company’s funded debt including bondholders and bank lenders.
“This is a resounding vote of confidence from our financing partners and a great day for Incora and its employees, customers, vendors and business partners,” said David Coleal, Incora’s chief executive officer. “This transaction provides a combination of fresh liquidity, maturity relief and debt service reduction, allowing Incora the financial stability to continue delivering innovative, first-in-class service to our existing customers, and to seize new business opportunities as the defense industry signals increased growth and the commercial aerospace industry rebounds.”
Coleal continued, “I want to thank our customers and our supplier partners, I want to thank our bondholders for their partnership with Incora, and I also want to thank our employees for their hard work and unwavering commitment as we faced unprecedented industry headwinds together. Our success through the COVID-19 pandemic would not have been possible without your dedication and teamwork.”
Participating bondholders, including Silver Point Finance, provided the additional long-term liquidity support to Incora and exchanged their existing secured and unsecured notes for new secured notes, extending the term of a portion of the secured notes and significantly reducing the amount of annual cash interest.
Key terms of the transaction include:
- Incora received $250 million of new money
- Supporting lenders exchanged existing secured and unsecured bonds for new bonds due in November 2026 and November 2027, respectively, extending the maturity on over $450 million of bonds that would have been due in 2024
