H&E Equipment Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: HEES) (the “Company”) today announced the closing of an offering of $100 million aggregate principal amount of 7% senior notes due 2022 (the “New Notes”) in an unregistered offering through a private placement (the “Offering”). The New Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Company and are guaranteed by certain of its domestic subsidiaries.

The New Notes rank equally with and form a part of a single class of securities with the Existing Notes.

The Company will use the proceeds from the Offering to repay indebtedness outstanding under its senior secured credit facility and for the payment of fees and expenses related to the Offering.
