The Wendy's Company Completes Refinancing

Paul, Weiss represented The Wendy's Company in connection with the refinancing of a portion of its 2015 whole business securitization. The company completed the sale of $450 million of its 3.573% fixed rate senior secured class A-2-I notes and $475 million of its 3.884% fixed rate senior secured class A-2-II notes, which were rated BBB by S&P. The company also issued $150 million of variable funding notes, allowing it to borrow amounts on a revolving basis. The refinancing extended the maturity of the company’s existing debt, improved the coupon and provided the opportunity to make certain amendments to the existing transaction documents.

The Paul, Weiss team included corporate partners Jordan Yarett, Robert Zochowski and John Kennedy; tax partner Jeffrey Samuels and counsel Alyssa Wolpin; intellectual property partner Claudine Meredith-Goujon; bankruptcy partners Alice Eaton, Alan Kornberg and Kyle Kimpler; and employee benefits counsel Uri Horowitz.
