In August 2020, the Company made principal repayments totaling $38.8 million of its 2023 floating rate term loan. The term loan was redeemed at 100 percent of the principal amount plus accrued interest, in accordance with the redemption provisions of the term loan.

In March 2019, the Company issued an aggregate principal amount of $230.0 million of its 6.375% Senior Notes (6.375% Notes) due April 2049 in a public offering, which resulted in aggregate net proceeds to the Company of $222.0 million.

Interest on the 6.375% Notes is due quarterly, commencing on April 15, 2019. The Company may, at its option, redeem the 6.375% Notes on or after April 15, 2024, either in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100 percent of the principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
