BURLINGTON, Mass., and FRISCO, Texas, USA – Following the Company’s successful deleveraging over the past three years, Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. (NASDAQ: KDP) announced today a strategic refinancing intended to further strengthen its balance sheet and enhance its liquidity profile.
The strategic refinancing includes the commencement of a public offering of senior notes and a concurrent series of tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) to purchase for cash certain of KDP’s outstanding series of senior unsecured notes.
