United Rentals to raise $471 million

By Patrick Hill03 June 2009

United Rentals is raising net funds of $471.2 million by selling $500 million in senior notes. This is an increase on the $300 million issue previously announced, which was oversubscribed.

United said it will use the funds to remove other senior indebtedness; to pay down its senior secured asset-backed revolving credit facility; and for other general corporate purposes.

The notes will carry an interest rate of 10.875% and are due in 2016. The money is being raised by United Rentals (North America), Inc, with its parent company, United Rentals Inc, guaranteeing the debt.
