Avaya Inc. Announces Repricing of $2.918 Billion Senior Secured Term Loan

Avaya Holdings announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Avaya
Inc., has successfully repriced its $2.918 billion senior secured term
loan.

“The repricing of this senior secured term loan reflects our improved
credit profile and will save Avaya over $14 million in annual cash
interest expense,” said Pat O’Malley, Avaya’s Senior Vice President and
Chief Financial Officer.

The repricing of the term loan which matures in 2024 reduces the
interest rate from LIBOR plus 4.75% to LIBOR plus 4.25% per annum and
reduces the LIBOR floor from 1% to 0%. The repricing was led by J.P.
Morgan and Goldman Sachs Bank USA as joint lead bookrunners and
arrangers.
