Gogo Inc. Announces Pricing of $65 Million Senior Secured Notes Offering

CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ:GOGO) ("Gogo") announced the pricing of the previously announced private offering of additional 12.500% senior secured notes due 2022 (the "Additional Notes") to be issued by its direct wholly owned subsidiary, Gogo Intermediate Holdings LLC (the "Issuer"), and its indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Gogo Finance Co. Inc. (the "Co-Issuer" and, together with the Issuer, the "Issuers").  The principal amount of the Additional Notes is $65 million and the Additional Notes will be issued at a price equal to 108% of their face value, resulting in gross proceeds of $70.2 million.  The issue price for the Additional Notes will include accrued interest from January 1, 2017 to the closing date. The offering is expected to close on January 3, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.  The Additional Notes will be issued as additional notes under the indenture pursuant to which the Issuers previously issued $525 million aggregate principal amount of 12.500% Senior Secured Notes due 2022 (the "Initial Notes") on June 14, 2016. The Additional Notes and the Initial Notes will have substantially identical terms and will be treated as a single series for all purposes under the indenture and the security documents that govern the Initial Notes and that will govern the Additional Notes. The Additional Notes will be guaranteed on a senior secured basis by Gogo and all of the existing and future domestic restricted subsidiaries of the Issuer (other than the Co-Issuer), subject to certain exceptions (the "Guarantors").  The Additional Notes and the related guarantees will be secured by first priority liens on substantially all of the Issuers' and the Guarantors' assets, including pledged equity interests of the Issuers and the Guarantors (other than Gogo).

The Additional Notes and the guarantees will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
