Scientific Games Announces Proposed Private Offering of an Additional $500 million of 5.000% Senior Secured Notes, €325 million of Senior Secured Notes and €250 million of Senior Unsecured Notes

LAS VEGASJan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the "Company") today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Scientific Games International, Inc. ("SGI"), intends, subject to market and other conditions, to offer an additional $500.0 million of its 5.000% senior secured notes due 2025 (the "New 5.000% Dollar Notes"), €325.0 million of senior secured notes due 2026 (the "Secured Euro Notes") and €250 million of senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the "Unsecured Euro Notes" and together with the New 5.000% Dollar Notes and the Secured Euro Notes, collectively, the "New Notes") in a private offering.

The New 5.000% Dollar Notes will be issued under the same indenture pursuant to which SGI previously issued $350 million of its 5.000% senior secured notes due 2025 (the "Existing Notes"). The New 5.000% Dollar Notes and the Existing Notes will be treated as a single series of debt securities for all purposes under the indenture, including, without limitation, waivers, amendments, redemptions and offers to purchase, will have terms identical to the Existing Notes, other than issue date and offering price and will have the same CUSIP and ISIN numbers as, and trade together with, the New 5.000% Dollar Notes, except that the New 5.000% Dollar Notes issued in offshore transactions under Regulation S shall be issued and maintained under a temporary CUSIP number during a 40-day distribution compliance period commencing on the issue date. 

Scientific Games intends to use the net proceeds of the New Notes offering, together with borrowings under the term loan B facility of its Credit Agreement, to redeem a portion of its outstanding 7.000% senior secured notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") and pay accrued and unpaid interest thereon plus any related premiums, fees and costs, and pay related fees and expenses of the New Notes offering and for general corporate purposes. The New Notes will be guaranteed on a senior basis by Scientific Games and certain of its subsidiaries. The New 5.000% Dollar Notes and the Secured Euro Notes will be secured by liens on the same collateral that secures indebtedness under Scientific Games' credit agreement.

The New Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 as amended (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 New 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.  The New Notes are not being offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area.

This press release does not and will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes, nor will there be any sale of the New 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.

Forward-Looking Statements
In this press release, Scientific Games makes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements describe future expectations, plans, results or strategies and can often be identified by the use of terminology such as "may," "will," "estimate," "intend," "plan," "continue," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "target," "should," "could," "potential," "opportunity," "goal," or similar terminology. These forward-looking statements include statements related to the terms, timing and completion of the offering of the New Notes; the treatment of the Existing Notes; the intended use of proceeds of the New Notes offering or borrowings under the term loan B facility of our Credit Agreement; and the completion of the partial redemption of the 2022 Notes. These statements are based upon management's current expectations, assumptions and estimates and are not guarantees of timing, future results or performance. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated in these statements due to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors, including, among other things: the inability to consummate the potential refinancing transactions on the terms described herein or at all; the inability to otherwise reduce or refinance our indebtedness; and the risk that we will not use the proceeds in the manner anticipated.

Additional information regarding risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in forward-looking statements is included from time to time in our filings with the SEC, including the Company's current reports on Form 8-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and its latest annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 3, 2017 (including under the headings "Forward Looking Statements" and "Risk Factors"). Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and, except for Scientific Games' ongoing obligations under the U.S. federal securities laws, Scientific Games undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
