RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – May 6, 2015 – Quintiles Transnational Holdings Inc. (NYSE: Q) (the “Company” or “Quintiles”) announced today that Quintiles Transnational Corp. (“Quintiles Transnational”), its wholly owned subsidiary, has priced $800 million principal amount of 4.875% senior unsecured notes due 2023 (the “Senior Notes”) offered in a private placement that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering, together with proceeds from its previously announced proposed senior secured credit facility, which is expected to increase to a total of $1.95 billion, including $1.45 billion of term loans, to refinance its existing credit facility, as well as for general corporate purposes, including corporate transactions and equity repurchases. The Senior Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on an unsecured basis by Quintiles Transnational’s domestic subsidiaries that guarantee the senior secured credit facility.

The issuance of the Senior Notes is expected to occur on or about May 12, 2015, concurrently with the expected closing of the new senior secured credit facility, subject to customary closing conditions. The Senior Notes are being offered in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Senior Notes or any other securities. The Senior Notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, 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 securities law.
