||limiting our ability to borrow additional amounts to fund working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, the execution of our growth strategy and other activities; |
||requiring us to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flow from operations to pay interest on our debt, which would reduce our cash flow available to fund working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions,
execution of our growth strategy and other activities; |
||making us more vulnerable to adverse changes in general economic conditions, our industry and government regulations and in our business by limiting our flexibility in planning for, and making it more difficult for us
to react quickly to, changing conditions; and |
||placing us at a competitive disadvantage compared with our competitors that have less debt. |
In addition, we may not be able to generate sufficient cash flow from our operations to repay our indebtedness when it becomes due and to meet
other cash needs. Our ability to service our debt will depend upon, among other things, our future financial and operating performance, which will be affected by prevailing economic conditions and financial, business, regulatory and other factors,
some of which are beyond our control. In addition, our ability to service our debt will depend on market interest rates, since we anticipate that the interest rates applicable to borrowings under our revolving credit facility will fluctuate. If we
are not able to pay our debts as they become due, we will be required to pursue one or more alternative strategies, such as selling assets, refinancing or restructuring our indebtedness or selling additional debt or equity securities. We may not be
able to refinance our debt or sell additional debt or equity securities or our assets on favorable terms, if at all, and if we must sell our assets, it may negatively affect our ability to generate revenues.
Despite our current level of indebtedness, the indenture governing the notes permit us and our subsidiaries to incur substantially more indebtedness.
This could further increase the risks associated with our substantial indebtedness.
We and our subsidiaries may be able to incur
substantial additional indebtedness in the future. The terms of the indenture governing the notes limit, but do not prohibit us or our subsidiaries from doing so. If we incur any additional indebtedness that ranks equally with the notes and the
guarantees, the holders of that indebtedness will be entitled to share ratably with the notes and the related guarantees in any proceeds distributed in connection with any insolvency, liquidation, reorganization, dissolution or other winding-up of us. This may have the effect of reducing the amount of any proceeds paid to you. If our current debt levels increase, the related risks that we and our subsidiaries now face could intensify.
The notes and the guarantees are unsecured and effectively subordinated to the Issuers and the guarantors existing and future secured
indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness.
The notes and the guarantees are general
unsecured obligations ranking effectively junior in right of payment to all of the Issuers and the guarantors existing and future secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness. Additionally, the
indenture governing the notes permit us to incur additional secured indebtedness in the future. As of March 31, 2016, after giving effect to the offering of the 2021 notes and the application of the net proceeds therefrom, the Acquisition and
related financing transactions, we would have had approximately $4.2 billion of debt outstanding, including $675.0 million of which would have been secured indebtedness under the revolving credit facility (excluding approximately $22.3 million of
letters of credit outstanding thereunder) and approximately $1.4 billion of which would have been secured indebtedness under the term loan facility. Additionally, we would have had approximately $802.7 million of remaining borrowing capacity under
our revolving credit facility. In the event that either of the Issuers or any guarantor is declared bankrupt, becomes insolvent or is liquidated or reorganized, any indebtedness that is senior in right to payment on the notes or the guarantees will
be entitled to be paid in full from the Issuers assets or the assets of the guarantor, as applicable, before any payment may be made with respect to the notes or the affected guarantees. Holders of the notes will participate ratably with all
holders of the Issuers and the guarantors
