THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Talen Energy Supply, LLC (the "Company" or "Talen Energy Supply") announced today that it has priced an offering of $470 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2028 (the "Notes"). The offering is expected to close on July 8, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes will be guaranteed by certain of Talen Energy Supply's subsidiaries that guarantee its existing indebtedness.

Talen Energy Supply intends to use the net proceeds from this offering, together with cash on hand and proceeds from a new seven-year $500 million Term Loan B facility that it began syndicating today and expects to close concurrently with the closing of the Notes (the "New Term Loan B"), to repay in full its existing Term Loan B-1 and Term Loan B-2 and to pay transaction fees and expenses.
