Like a phoenix arising from the ashes of U.S. Shipping Partners L.P., American Petroleum Tankers Holding LLC (“APT”) has come to the market offering $275 million First Priority Senior Secured Notes due in 2015. The company’s equity sponsors, Blackstone (75%) and Cerberus (25%) intend to use the proceeds of the offering to escrow $169.9 million for the construction and acquisition of the last two of five 49,000 DWT product tankers ordered at NASSCO, the M/T Empire State and M/T Evergreen State, to refinance the existing senior secured loan facility of $96.6 million and pay $8.5 million in transaction fees and expenses. The notes are rated B1 and B+, highly speculative, by Moody’s and S&P respectively.
