Calumet Specialty plans to sell $450 million of debt

July 12, 2010

Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP, the Indianapolis-based refiner of specialty hydrocarbon products, plans to sell $450 million of senior notes.

Proceeds will be used to repay bank debt, the company said Monday in a prepared statement. Calumet Specialty plans to market the 10-year notes beginning Monday through July 16, according to a person familiar with the transaction.

The notes may be rated mid-single B, said the person, who declined to be identified because terms aren’t set.

Calumet lost $13 million in its latest fiscal quarter even though sales rose 17 percent, to $485 million. Shares were up 7 cents this morning, to $18.49 each.
