Carvana Co. ("Carvana") (NYSE: CVNA), a leading e-commerce platform for buying used cars, today announced that it has upsized and priced the private placement of $350.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.875% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”). The offering was upsized from the previously announced $300.0 million aggregate principal amount. An entity affiliated with Ernest Garcia, II, Carvana’s controlling shareholder, has agreed to purchase $25.0 million aggregate principal amount of Notes in the offering. The Notes will be issued under an indenture to be entered into upon the closing of the offering, which Carvana anticipates will take place on or about September 21, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions. Carvana intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to pay its fees and expenses related to the offering and for general corporate purposes.
The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 8.875% per year, payable semi-annually on April 1 and October 1 of each year, beginning on April 1, 2019. The Notes will mature on October 1, 2023, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased.
The Notes, which will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by Carvana's existing domestic subsidiaries, were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers” in reliance on the exemption from registration pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to persons outside of the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and the related guarantees have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities or blue sky laws and foreign securities laws.

No offer, solicitation, or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
