TWINSBURG, Ohio, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Revco D.S., Inc. (NYSE: RXR) announced today that its Board of Directors has established terms for its previously announced rights offering, which comprises one of three parts of the company's recapitalization plan. Under the recapitalization plan, Revco intends to refinance its existing working capital credit agreement and redeem its three outstanding public debt issues with proceeds from the sale of common stock pursuant to the rights offering to stockholders, a new public issue of senior notes and new credit facilities. In today's actions, the Board of Directors established a subscription price of $8.00 per share and a record date of the close of business on Dec. 28, 1992.
Each stockholder will receive 0.384 transferable right for each share of Revco common stock held as of the record date. The number of rights distributed by the company to each holder of common stock will be rounded up to the nearest whole number. Rights holders are entitled to purchase at the $8.00 subscription price one share of common stock for each right held.
Rights holders who exercise their rights in full will also have the opportunity, subject to certain limitations, to subscribe for additional shares of common stock which are not otherwise purchased by rights holders. Rights to purchase approximately 13,750,000 shares of common stock will be distributed. As a result, proceeds from the sale of common stock pursuant to the rights offering will be approximately $110 million.
