WESTLAKE, Texas, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solera Holdings, Inc. ("Solera" or the "Company") (NYSE: SLH) announced today that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Audatex North America, Inc. ("Audatex"), has closed a private offering of an additional $510 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.000% senior notes due 2021 (the "New 2021 Notes") and $340 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.125% senior notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes").  The New 2021 Notes were issued at an issue price of 101.75% of their principal amount, plus accrued interest from July 2, 2013, and the 2023 Notes were issued at par.  The New 2021 Notes were issued as additional notes under the indenture governing the outstanding $850 million in aggregate principal amount of the Issuer's 6.000% Senior Notes due 2021 that were issued on July 2, 2013. 

Audatex used the net proceeds from the offering, together with existing cash on hand, to make a deposit with the trustee of Audatex's 6.75% senior notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes") to fund the previously announced redemption of all of the outstanding $850 million aggregate principal amount of the 2018 Notes.  The closing of the offering of the New 2021 Notes and the 2023 Notes satisfied the financing condition in the notice of redemption, and, as a result, the 2018 Notes have become irrevocably due and payable on November 18, 2013, the redemption date specified in the notice of redemption.

The New 2021 Notes and the 2023 Notes were offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to certain persons outside of the U.S. pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.  Neither the New 2021 Notes, the 2023 Notes nor the related guarantees have been registered under the Securities Act or any state or other securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This press release is for information purposes only and is not an offer to buy, the solicitation or an offer to sell or a solicitation of consents with respect to, any of the 2018 Notes.  This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of 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.
