Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J

 

On February 18, 2020, the Company and the Trustee entered the Thirty-Eighth Supplemental Indenture to the Base Indenture (the “Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Thirty-Eighth Supplemental Indenture”) and a Pledge and Security Agreement (the “Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Security Agreement”).  In connection with the foregoing, the Company has offered up to $4,250,000 in aggregate principal amount of UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Secured Notes (the “Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Notes”) in a public offering.  Investors in the Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Notes must first join the U-Haul Investors Club. The Company intends to use the proceeds to reimburse its subsidiaries and affiliates for the cost of acquisition and development of the collateral pledged in such offering (the “Collateral”) and for general corporate purposes.  

 

The Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Notes bear interest at rates between 3.25% and 4.50% per year and mature between five and ten years from issue date and are fully amortizing over their respective terms. Principal and interest on the Notes will be credited to each holder’s U-Haul Investors Club account on a quarterly basis in arrears throughout the term. The Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Thirty-Eighth Supplemental Indenture and the Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Security Agreement contain covenants requiring the maintenance of a first-priority lien on the Collateral subject to permitted liens, and a prohibition of additional liens on the Collateral.  The Notes are not guaranteed by any subsidiary of the Company, and therefore are effectively subordinated to all of the existing and future claims of creditors of each of the Company’s subsidiaries.

 

The Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Notes were offered and will be sold pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-235872) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a prospectus supplement, dated February 18, 2020, together with the accompanying prospectus, dated January 10, 2020, relating to the offering and sale of the Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Notes. 

 

For a complete description of the terms and conditions of the Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Thirty-Eighth Supplemental Indenture and the Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Security Agreement, please refer to the Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Thirty-Eighth Supplemental Indenture and the Fixed Rate Secured Notes Series UIC-1J, 2J, 3J, 4J, 5J, 6J, 7J, 8J, 9J and 10J Security Agreement, each of which is incorporated herein by reference and attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1.
