HOUSTON, July 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CATM), the world's largest retail ATM owner, today announced the pricing of $250 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.125% senior notes due 2022 at par for sale to eligible purchasers in a private offering (the "Notes Offering"). The Notes Offering is expected to close on July 28, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.

Cardtronics intends to use the net proceeds from the Notes Offering to purchase all of its outstanding $179,442,000 aggregate principal amount of 8.250% senior subordinated notes due 2018 pursuant to its previously announced tender offer, to redeem any such notes not acquired in the tender offer and for general corporate purposes.

Accordingly, the notes are expected to be eligible for resale in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S. This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
