Lowers Interest Rates on Current Debt to Provide Approximately $6.8 Million in Annual Interest Savings

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Maravai LifeSciences Holdings, Inc. (Maravai) (NASDAQ: MRVI), a global provider of life science reagents and services to researchers and biotech innovators, today announced that it had successfully completed the repricing of its existing credit facilities.

“We are pleased to announce the completion of our debt repricing that further strengthens Maravai’s financial foundation and flexibility going forward,” said Kevin Herde, Maravai Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Our outstanding operating performance, strong cash flows, and recent rating agency upgrades allowed us to reprice our current debt level at a meaningfully lower rate structure.”

The repricing is expected to reduce annual cash interest expense on the Company’s term loans by approximately $6.8 million annually while it remains outstanding, compared to the previous interest rate. The term loan maturity date of October 2027, the revolving maturity date of October 2025, and all other material provisions under the credit agreement remain unchanged.

Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. acted as lead left arranger for the term loan repricing.
