LifePoint Hospitals, Inc. Announces Pricing of Add-on Offering of $400 Million of 5.5% Senior Notes Due 2021

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--

LifePoint Hospitals, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPNT) announced today the pricing of a private offering of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of its 5.5% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes"). The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company and will be guaranteed by certain of the Company's existing and future domestic subsidiaries.

The Notes will be issued as additional notes under the indenture dated as of December 6, 2013, pursuant to which the Company has previously issued $700 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.5% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Initial Notes"). The Notes will be treated as a single series with, and will have the same terms as, the Initial Notes (other than the issue date and offering price). The Notes are expected to have the same CUSIP and ISIN numbers as, and will be fungible for trading purposes with, the Initial Notes.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund, in part, the payment of its outstanding 3.5% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (the "Convertible Notes") at maturity and the cash-settled portion of the conversion of the Convertible Notes. The closing of the sale of the Notes is expected to occur on May 12, 2014, and is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Notes and related subsidiary guarantees are being offered in the United States to qualiied institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and the related subsidiary guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.


This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of Notes and related subsidiary guarantees in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.
