About the rating
By DBRS a sum of $20 million worth Class A notes was rated BB and another $1907 million notes were rated as B.
The average 7.75% fixed rate notes are supported by royalties and primary upfront fees are charged to Fat Brands franchisees, including Buffalo’s wings, Fatburger, and Ponderosa Steakhouse.
According to the rating a total of 400 stores are contracted to pay these fees with 200 more planned to open. As said by Wiederhorn, $25 million of the debt security will be used for refinancing the present debt at a certain rate.
This will save the company’s $2 million yearly with the outstanding funds will be used to acquire additional restaurant brands in the second quarter of the current year.
As a factor in the rating, Wiederhorn gives credit to the tokens issued on the ethereum blockchain.
