ATSG completes acquisition of Omni Air
November 13, 2018: Air Transport Services Group recently announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Omni Air International LLC (Omni Air), a passenger ACMI and charter services provider, along with related entities, for $845 million, subject to customary adjustments.
Joe Hete, president and chief executive officer of ATSG, said, "Completing this Omni acquisition is a milestone achievement for ATSG. It increases both our revenue and our Adjusted EBITDA expectations for 2019 by more than 40 percent, brings increased revenue diversification, and adds both passenger service and Boeing 777 capabilities to our range of services. We are eager to work with Omni’s management to pursue the many opportunities our combined assets and talented associates can address.”
In contemplation of the Omni purchase, ATSG agreed to amend its senior credit facility with a consortium of banks led by SunTrust Bank, previously dated May 31, 2016. The new amended agreement has an aggregate principal amount of $1.28 billion, consisting of the continuing secured revolving credit facility of $545 million, a continuing secured term loan with a current balance of $60 million, and a new $675 million secured term loan. The maturity date of these loans is May 30, 2023.
The company in a press release said that the amended facility includes an accordion feature that would allow the total amount of borrowings under the facility to increase by up to $400 million, assuming certain conditions and with bank consent. The total amount of additional debt ATSG and its subsidiaries may incur outside of the amended facility increases from $300 million to $500 million. Credit terms are consistent with the existing facility, including with respect to provisions limiting ATSG’s ability to declare or pay dividends or repurchase shares, and requires ATSG to maintain specified financial ratios and minimum collateral values, and meet other financial condition tests. The facility is secured by substantially all of ATSG’s Boeing 777, 767 and 757 aircraft.
