NRG Yield Operating LLC, an indirect subsidiary of NRG Yield, Inc., intends to commence an offering of $400.0 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2024. The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Yield Operating and will be guaranteed by NRG Yield LLC, Yield Operating’s parent company, and by each of Yield Operating’s wholly owned current and future subsidiaries that guarantees indebtedness under its credit agreement.
Yield Operating intends to use the proceeds of the offering to fund, in whole or in part, renewable energy projects. Specifically, Yield Operating intends to use the proceeds from the green bond offering, together with cash on hand, including the net proceeds from the issuance of Class A common stock by NRG Yield, which proceeds will be contributed to Yield Operating, to fund the aggregate $870 million cash purchase price of the previously announced acquisition of the Alta Wind Facility. However, this offering is not conditioned upon the completion of the Alta Acquisition and, to the extent the Alta Acquisition is not completed, Yield Operating expects that the net proceeds from this offering will be allocated by it to the financing of future acquisitions of Eligible Green Projects.
The Notes and related guarantees are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or outside the United States to persons other than “U.S. persons” in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This notice is issued pursuant to Rule 135c of the Securities Act, and does not constitute an offer to sell, nor a solicitation for an offer to purchase the Notes.
