The firm further typed this as an “opportunistic private offering” that does not require registration in terms of the US Securities Act. It added:

Accordingly, the notes are being offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.

Virtu indicated that it guarantees these notes and intends to use the raised funds to repay existing debt.

These amendments include a $1,245m senior secured first lien term loan and an increase of its revolving credit facility to $300m.
