Mattel said to plan $500 million bond offering to refinance debt
Mattel Inc. plans to raise $500 million with bonds as the world's biggest toymaker prepares to refinance outstanding obligations.
The company intends to sell equal $250 million portions of five- and 10-year securities, according to a person familiar with the offering. Proceeds will be used to repay debt, including its $350 million of 5.625 percent securities due this month, the El Segundo, California-based company said today in a regulatory filing.
The new bonds may be rated Baa1 from Moody's Investors Service, said the person, who asked not to be identified, citing lack of authorization to speak publicly.
