Basic Energy Services Prices Offering Of Senior Secured Notes

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic" or the "Company") today announced that the Company has priced its previously announced offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 10.75% senior secured notes due 2023 (the "notes"), at a price of 99.042% of par to yield 11.00%. The offering is expected to close on October 2, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.

The notes will mature on October 15, 2023 and will be secured, senior obligations of the Company. Interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears.

Basic intends to use the net proceeds of the proposed offering to repay Basic's existing indebtedness under its term loan, to repay Basic's outstanding borrowings under its asset-based secured revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.

Neither the notes nor the related guarantees have been, nor will be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements. The notes were offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to certain non-U.S. persons outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S, each under the Act.
