BRP Group, Inc. Announces Upsize and Successful Repricing of Senior Secured Term Loan Facility
TAMPA, Fla., May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BRP Group, Inc. (“BRP Group” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BRP) today announced that its subsidiary Baldwin Risk Partners, LLC (“BRP LLC”) priced a loan syndication for an upsized, new $500 million senior secured first lien term loan facility maturing in 2027 (the “New Term Loan B”), which represents a $100 million increase in the aggregate principal amount of its existing senior secured first lien term loan facility (the “Existing Term Loan B”).
The New Term Loan B will bear interest at LIBOR plus 350 basis points (“bps”), which is an improvement of 50 bps from BRP LLC’s Existing Term Loan B, and is subject to a LIBOR floor of 50 bps (25 bps lower than the LIBOR floor for the Existing Term Loan B).
“This execution provides us incremental capacity to help fund our strong partnership pipeline and meaningfully reduces our cost of capital,” said Brad Hale, Chief Financial Officer of BRP Group. “We believe the outcome reflects the strong performance of the business and our increased scale and capabilities since our initial Term Loan execution last October.”
BRP LLC intends to use the net proceeds of the New Term Loan B to refinance BRP LLC’s Existing Term Loan B and for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions and investments permitted under the New Term Loan B.
BRP LLC expects the New Term Loan B to close on or about June 2, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. The commitments in respect of the New Term Loan B and the terms and conditions thereof remain subject to the finalization and execution of definitive documentation.
