GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANGI Homeservices Inc. (NASDAQ:ANGI) today announced that it closed a $275 million secured Term Loan A facility.
ANGI Homeservices expects to use the proceeds of the loans under the term loan facility to repay certain indebtedness owed to IAC Group, LLC, a subsidiary of IAC/InterActiveCorp, and for general corporate purposes.
The term loan facility will mature in five years and will require quarterly amortization payments. Borrowings under the term loan facility currently bear interest at LIBOR plus 2.00%.
In addition, as previously announced, ANGI Homeservices will release its third quarter results after the close of market trading on Wednesday, November 8. In connection with the combination of HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List, which was consummated in late September, ANGI Homeservices expects to recognize approximately $26 million in transaction-related expenses in the quarter. These expenses, which will impact both reported operating income and Adjusted EBITDA, represent a portion of the previously disclosed transaction-related cash expenses that are expected to be recognized through the remainder of 2017 and in 2018. The aggregate amount of transaction-related expenses (including those previously recognized) are currently expected to be less than $75 million, down from previous estimates of approximately $100 million.
