Hornbeck Offshore Announces New Senior Credit Facility

COVINGTON, La., July 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. (NYSE: HOS) ("the Company") announced today that on June 28, 2019, the Company entered into a new $100 million senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility (the "Senior Credit Facility"). The fully-funded Senior Credit Facility is secured by first priority liens on certain eligible receivables, certain restricted cash amounts and related assets.

The Senior Credit Facility enhances the Company's financial flexibility and is comprised of two tranches that will rebalance each month based on the variable eligible receivables-backed borrowing base. The unrestricted receivables-backed tranche will mature in 2022, and the restricted cash-backed tranche will mature in 2025. The receivables-backed tranche may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, including the repayment or refinancing of existing debt, subject to, among other things, compliance with certain requirements. The cash-backed tranche may, over time, rebalance to the receivables-backed tranche as eligible receivables increase and may be refinanced over time.

Loans under the Senior Credit Facility accrue interest at LIBOR plus a floating-rate spread of 5.00% for the life of the facility.

The Administrative and Collateral Agent of the Senior Credit Facility is CIT Northbridge Credit LLC. The Company's exclusive financial advisor in connection with the transaction and the sole lead arranger of the facility was Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. and the Company's legal advisors were Latham & Watkins LLP and Winstead PC.

The foregoing is only a summary, is not necessarily complete, and is qualified by the full text of the Senior Credit Agreement and the Guaranty and Security Agreement, which were filed as exhibits to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K related to this matter on Friday, July 5, 2019.

Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. is a leading provider of technologically advanced, new generation offshore service vessels primarily in the Gulf of Mexico and Latin America.
