Item 8.01.             Other Events


On May 15, 2013, First Data Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release to announce that it intends to offer $500 million aggregate principal amount of its senior subordinated notes due 2021 (the “notes”).  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.


Subsequently, on May 15, 2013, the Company increased the offering size of the notes to an aggregate principal amount of $750 million and set the coupon rate at 11.75%. The notes will be issued at par.


The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes, together with cash on hand, to (i) redeem $520 million aggregate principal amount of its 11.25% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016 (the “11.25% Subordinated Notes”), (ii) repurchase $230 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 11.25% Subordinated Notes in a privately negotiated transaction with an existing holder of such notes and (iii) pay related fees and expenses.


On May 15, 2013, the Company exercised its right under the indenture governing the 11.25% Subordinated Notes to optionally redeem $520 million aggregate principal amount of its 11.25% Subordinated Notes. The 11.25% Subordinated Notes are currently redeemable at a price of 102.813 % of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest. This Current Report does not constitute a notice of redemption of the 11.25% Subordinated Notes.
