The Notes are expected to be issued on October 7, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. Each of the Company’s subsidiaries will guarantee the Notes, other than Sunseeker Resorts, Inc., its subsidiaries and certain other insignificant subsidiaries. The Notes and the related guarantees will be secured by security interests in substantially all of the property and assets of the Company and the guarantors of the Notes, excluding aircraft, aircraft engines and certain other assets.

The Notes and the related guarantees will rank pari passu with the Term Loan, which has an outstanding principal amount of $543 million. Combining the Notes with the balance on the Term Loan which bears a floating interest rate, we will have approximately $693 million of debt secured by this collateral with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.5% at the current time. The Company will use the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes for general corporate purposes.
Previously, the Company applied to the loan program under the CARES Act for funding in the principal amount of up to $276 million through September 30, 2020. The Company has decided not to pursue any loans from the U.S. Treasury.
