Republic Services, Inc. announced today that it has notified the registered holders of its 7.875% Senior Notes due 2013 (the "Notes") that it will redeem all of the Notes outstanding on November 30, 2009 (the "Redemption Date"). The Notes will be redeemed at a price equal to 102.625% of the principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the Redemption Date. Payment of the redemption price will be made by U.S. Bank National Association, the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes, on the Redemption Date upon presentation and surrender of the Notes as set forth in the redemption notice. The company intends to use cash on hand and, if necessary, incremental borrowings under its revolving credit facility to fund the redemption. The company may also explore capital markets opportunities to fund the redemption if market conditions are favorable. The company expects to incur a charge upon extinguishment of the Notes of approximately $35 million. This charge will be reflected in its fourth quarter 2009 financial results.
