LAS VEGAS SANDS SEEKS TO EXTEND, PAY DOWN LOAN Reuters
Reuters sources said LVS seeks to amend its $5 billion credit facility by paying down $750 million of the outstanding $3.9 billion and extending ~$2.25 billion for 2.5 years. Thus, ~$900 million of the amount outstanding would not be extended. The paydown piece applies only to those who extend for 2.5 years. Lenders who extend would receive 75 more bps in coupon to 250 bps + Libor. Consenting lenders would also receive a 10 bps amendment fee. The amendment requires 50% approval from lenders to pass.
