Southfield, Michigan, Jan. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Credit Acceptance Corporation ( NASDAQ: CACC) (referred to as the "Company", "Credit Acceptance", "we", "our", or "us") announced today the closing of the Company's previously announced offering of $300 million of its 6.125% senior notes due 2021 (the "notes") in a private offering exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with borrowings under our revolving credit facility, to redeem in full the $350.0 million outstanding principal amount of our 9.125% first priority senior secured notes due 2017 (the "2017 notes") in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the 2017 notes. Pending this application of the net proceeds from the offering, the net proceeds may be invested in short-term investments or applied to repay borrowings under our revolving credit facility without reducing the lenders' commitments thereunder.
The notes were offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, the notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to the 2017 notes or an obligation to issue any such notice of redemption.
