Item 2.04Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement


The information set forth below in Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K with respect to the Full Redemption of the 2025 secured notes (each as defined below) is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 8.01Other Events


On February 2, 2023, the Company issued a press release to announce the pricing of an offering of $2.60 billion aggregate principal amount of 10.50% senior secured notes due 2028 (the “New Notes”) by its subsidiaries, Uniti Group LP, Uniti Fiber Holdings Inc., Uniti Group Finance 2019 Inc. and CSL Capital, LLC (the “Issuers”), which is an increase of $850 million over the previously announced amount. The New Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the Company and on a senior secured basis by each of the Company’s subsidiaries (other than the Issuers) that guarantees indebtedness under the Company’s senior secured credit facilities and the Company’s existing secured notes (except initially those subsidiaries that require regulatory approval prior to guaranteeing the New Notes). The Issuers intend to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the New Notes to fund the redemption in full (the “Full Redemption”) of all outstanding aggregate principal amount of their 7.875% senior secured notes due 2025 (the “2025 secured notes”), including related premiums, fees and expenses in connection with the foregoing. In connection with the pricing of the New Notes, the Company issued a conditional notice of full redemption for the 2025 secured notes, which is conditioned upon completion of one or more debt financings in an aggregate principal amount of at least $2.60 billion. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to the 2025 secured notes. The Issuers intend to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering of the New Notes to repay outstanding borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The offering of the New Notes is expected to close on February 14, 2023.


The New Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act or any applicable state securities laws. The New Notes were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
