Bausch Health Announces It Is Seeking To Refinance Its Existing Credit Agreement And Conditional Redemption Of Existing Notes - These Steps Will Enable Bausch + Lomb IPO And Facilitate Full Separation

- Bausch Health Companies Inc. (NYSETSX: BHC) ("Bausch Health" or the "Company") announced today that it is seeking to refinance its existing credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement" and such refinancing, the "Credit Agreement Refinancing"). The refinanced Credit Agreement is expected to consist of approximately $2.5 billion of term B loans (the "New Term B Loans") and a $975 million revolving credit facility. The Credit Agreement Refinancing is expected to occur only upon completion of the initial public offering (IPO) of Bausch + Lomb Corporation ("Bausch + Lomb" and such offering, the "Bausch + Lomb IPO") and a related debt financing by Bausch + Lomb (the "Bausch + Lomb Debt Financing"). At the time of the Bausch + Lomb IPO, Bausch + Lomb will initially remain a "restricted" subsidiary subject to the terms of the Credit Agreement covenants, but the Credit Agreement Refinancing is expected to permit Bausch Health to designate Bausch + Lomb as an "unrestricted" subsidiary outside the terms of the Credit Agreement covenants upon achievement of a 7.6x pro forma "Total Leverage Ratio." The Credit Agreement Refinancing is designed to facilitate the separation and distribution of Bausch + Lomb.

The Company also intends, subject to market conditions, to issue approximately $1.0 billion of secured debt securities (the "New Debt Securities"). The proceeds of the New Term B Loans and the offering of the New Debt Securities, along with proceeds from the Bausch + Lomb IPO and from the repayment of an intercompany note owed by Bausch + Lomb (which is expected to be funded by the Bausch + Lomb Debt Financing), are expected to be used to fund the redemption in full of our outstanding 6.125% Senior Notes due 2025 (the "6.125% Notes due 2025"), refinance all of the existing Term B Loans, fund a partial redemption of our outstanding 9.000% Senior Notes due 2025 (the "9.000% Notes due 2025" and, collectively with the 9.000% Notes due 2025, the "Existing Notes") and to pay related fees, premiums and expenses.
