McLean, Virginia — Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (NYSE: BAH) (“Booz Allen”) announced the commencement of a private offering of $350 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes (the “Notes”) by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. (the “Issuer”). Each of the Issuer’s existing and future restricted subsidiaries that guarantee the Issuer’s obligations under its senior credit facility and certain other indebtedness (the “Guarantors”) will guarantee the Notes on a senior unsecured basis. There can be no assurance that the proposed offering of Notes will be completed.
The Issuer intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes to repay its revolving credit facility and to use any remaining net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including the repayment of a portion or all of the outstanding deferred payment obligation established in connection with the acquisition of Booz Allen by The Carlyle Group in 2008.
The Notes and the guarantees will be offered in a private offering exempt from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes and the guarantees will be offered and sold only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and in offshore transactions to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S, each under the Securities Act.
The Notes and the guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.

This press release includes forward-looking statements regarding Booz Allen’s financing plans, including statements related to the Issuer’s offering of the Notes and intended use of net proceeds of the offering. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties including, without limitation, risks related to whether the Issuer will consummate the offering of the Notes on the expected terms, or at all, market and other general economic conditions and whether the Issuer and the Guarantors will be able to satisfy the conditions required to close any sale of the Notes. Booz Allen’s forward-looking statements also involve assumptions that, if they never materialize or prove correct, could cause its results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
