Realogy's Parent Company, Domus Holdings Corp., Files Registration Statement for Proposed Initial Public Offering
PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 8, 2012) - Domus Holdings Corp., the parent of Realogy Corporation, today announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") relating to a proposed primary initial public offering of shares of its Class A common stock. The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed $1 billion offering have not yet been determined. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay outstanding indebtedness.
If the offering is consummated, all of Realogy's Convertible Notes in the aggregate principal amount of approximately $2.1 billion would be converted into Class A common stock or redeemed at 90% of the principal amount thereof on or about the closing of the offering, and holders of approximately $2 billion aggregate principal amount of such Convertible Notes have indicated that they intend to so convert. If the offering is consummated with net proceeds of $1 billion and at least $2 billion aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes are converted into Class A common stock, the Company expects its overall indebtedness would be reduced by approximately $3 billion. Domus Holdings Corp. does not conduct any operations other than with respect to its ownership of Realogy.
A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC, but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
