Boral announces consideration for tender offer
NEW YORK and SYDNEY, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Boral Finance Pty Ltd (the "Company"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Boral Limited (ASX:BLD) ("Boral"), announced today the consideration payable as set forth in the table below in respect of the previously announced tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash up to US$300,000,000 aggregate principal amount (the "Maximum Tender Amount") of its outstanding 3.750% Guaranteed Senior Notes due 2028 (the "Notes"). The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in the Offer to Purchase dated June 22, 2022 (the "Offer to Purchase"). The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 20, 2022, or any other date and time to which the Company extends the Tender Offer (such date and time, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Time"), unless earlier terminated.
The consideration of US$966.47 per US$1,000 principal amount (the "Early Tender Consideration") for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time (as defined below) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer was determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Notes specified in the table below, plus the yield to maturity based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table below, calculated as of 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, and is inclusive of the Early Tender Premium set forth in the table below.
Since the Early Tender Consideration determined as described in the Offer to Purchase is less than US$1,000 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes, the Early Tender Consideration has been calculated based on the maturity date of May 1, 2028, the stated maturity date for the Notes, and not February 1, 2028, the par call date for the Notes.
2.625% UST due May 31,
Per US$1,000 principal amount. The Early Tender Consideration is calculated using the fixed spread specified in the table above.
Only holders of Notes who validly tendered their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 6, 2022 (the "Early Tender Time") are eligible to receive the Early Tender Consideration. In addition, holders whose Notes are purchased in the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date. The Company has elected to pay for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time and accepted for purchase on July 11, 2022.
Since the principal amount of Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Time exceeded the Maximum Tender Amount, the Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be subject to proration as described in the section "The Terms of the Tender Offer—Maximum Tender Amount; Priority of Acceptance; Proration" of the Offer to Purchase. The Company has accepted for purchase an aggregate principal amount of US$300,000,000 of Notes in the Tender Offer using a proration rate of approximately 74.07%. The Company does not anticipate accepting for purchase any Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time.
