SANDUSKY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (NYSE: FUN) (the “Company” or “Cedar Fair”) today announced that it, together with its wholly owned subsidiaries Magnum Management Corporation (“Magnum”), Canada’s Wonderland Company (“Cedar Canada”) and Millennium Operations LLC (“Millennium” and, together with the Company, the “Issuers”), has upsized and priced $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 5.500% senior secured notes due 2025 (the “Notes”), an upsize of $125.0 million over the amount previously announced. The Notes were priced at 100% of the aggregate principal amount of notes offered. Obligations under the Notes will be guaranteed by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries that guarantee its senior secured credit facilities (other than the Magnum, Cedar Canada and Millennium) (the “Credit Facilities”). The Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the offering to repay a portion of its term loan facility and the remaining amount for general corporate and working capital purposes, including fees and expenses related to the transaction. Completion of the offering is subject to, among other things, standard closing conditions and, in part, an amendment to its Credit Facilities.

The notes and the guarantees will be secured by first-priority liens on the Issuers’ and the guarantors’ assets that secure all the obligations under the Company’s Credit Facilities.

The Notes will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act. The issuance and sale of the Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and the Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws. 

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