Team, Inc. Announces Commitment for Refinancing of Capital Structure
Upon Completion, Transactions Will Provide Financial Flexibility and Extend Maturities
SUGAR LAND, Texas, May 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (NYSE: TISI) (“TEAM” or the “Company”), a global, leading provider of specialty industrial services offering clients access to a full suite of conventional, specialized, and proprietary mechanical, heat-treating, and inspection services, today announced that it has secured committed financing from two of its largest current stakeholders for a series of transactions that, once completed, are expected to significantly improve its capital structure and extend maturities.
TEAM entered into a commitment letter (the “Corre Commitment Letter”) with Corre Management Partners, LLC (“Corre”) for a new $57.5 million, 12% senior secured first lien term loan maturing in December 2026 and comprised of a $37.5 million term loan tranche and a $20 million delayed draw term loan tranche (the “Corre Secured Term Loan”), subject to certain closing conditions. The Corre Commitment Letter also provides that Corre’s existing subordinated term loan will become secured on a pari passu basis to the Corre Secured Term Loan. TEAM expects to use the proceeds from the Corre Secured Term Loan to repay in full TEAM’s remaining $41 million of Convertible Notes due August 2023 and for general corporate purposes.
TEAM also entered into a commitment letter with Eclipse Business Capital LLC (the “Eclipse Commitment Letter”) for a new $27.4 million term loan secured by certain real estate and machinery and equipment of the Company (the “Eclipse Term Loan”), subject to certain closing conditions, and with a maturity date coterminous with the Company’s existing revolving credit facility. The Eclipse Commitment Letter also provides for an amendment to the existing revolving credit facility to extend the maturity date of the revolving credit facility (and therefore the proposed Eclipse Term Loan) to August 2025, and to increase availability under the revolving credit facility by an additional $2.5 million. TEAM expects to use the proceeds from the Eclipse Term Loan, together with advances under the Company’s revolving credit facility to repay in full the Company’s existing senior secured term loan with Atlantic Park Strategic Capital Fund, L.P.
The closing of the term loan facilities and related amendments to existing credit facilities is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2023 and is subject to the negotiation of definitive documentation and the satisfaction of customary conditions prior to closing.
“Addressing our capital structure has been one of our top priorities in our ongoing program to improve liquidity and strengthen TEAM’s balance sheet,” said Keith D. Tucker, TEAM’s Chief Executive Officer. “A key step in that process was securing a refinancing solution for our $41 million of convertible notes maturing in August of 2023. We are very pleased to announce committed financing that provides $87.4 million in funding, allowing for the payoff of our convertible notes and our existing $36 million senior secured term loan, while also extending our next debt maturity to August 2025. Once completed, we believe these transactions should remediate the conditions that led to the going concern disclosure in our 2022 fiscal year end annual report and our most recent quarterly report and provide the runway to continue successfully implementing our turnaround plan designed to further lower our cost structure and improve profitability and cash flow.”
Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Evercore Partners Inc. are advising TEAM in connection with these transactions.
