Masco Corporation Announces Upsizing and Early Tender Results of Tender Offers
June 26, 2017
Livonia, Mich., (June 26, 2017) — Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS) (“Masco”) announced today the early tender results of the previously announced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) to purchase up to an aggregate purchase price (each, a “Maximum Series Tender Cap”) for each of the four series of notes issued by Masco (the “Notes”) as shown in the table below. In addition, Masco announced the increase of the Maximum Series Tender Cap for the 6.50% Notes due 2032 as shown in the table below. The Maximum Series Tender Cap for each of the remaining series of Notes remains unchanged.
The Tender Offers are being made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated June 12, 2017 (the “Offer to Purchase”).
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 23, 2017 (the "Early Tender Date"), as reported by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender and information agent for the Tender Offers, the principal amounts of the Notes listed in the table below had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.
The applicable total consideration for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 26, 2017, including the proration procedures. Holders of such Notes will be eligible to receive the total consideration for any such Notes, including the applicable early tender payment specified in the Offer to Purchase, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, June 27, 2017, the expected settlement date of the Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date, subject to proration.
The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 11, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated. Because the Tender Offers have been fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who tendered Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase. Any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, together with any Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date but not accepted for purchase by Masco, including Notes not accepted because of proration, will be returned to the holders thereof as described in the Offer to Purchase.
The withdrawal deadline for the Tender Offers was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 23, 2017 (the “Withdrawal Deadline”) and has not been extended. Accordingly, previously tendered Notes and Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn, subject to applicable law.
Masco will fund the Tender Offers with the proceeds from the sale of its 3.500% Notes due 2027 and its 4.500% Notes due 2047, which was completed on June 21, 2017, and with cash on hand.
