Sallie Mae® (Nasdaq: SLM), formally SLM Corporation, announced today the expiration and results for its previously announced cash tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase up to 2,000,000 shares (the "Maximum Share Amount") of its Floating Rate Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series B, par value $0.20 per share (the "Securities").
The Offer expired on Nov. 24, 2020 at 11:59 p.m., New York City time (the "Expiration Date"). Based on the count by the depositary for the Offer, as of the Expiration Date, 1,489,304 Securities have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn (the "Total Tendered Amount"). Because the Total Tendered Amount is less than the Maximum Share Amount, the Company has accepted for purchase all such Securities tendered as of the Expiration Date.
The consideration for each Security tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer will equal $45 plus an amount equal to Accrued Dividends. "Accrued Dividends" means, for each Security, accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, from the last dividend payment date with respect to such Security up to, but not including, the settlement date of the Offer.
The Company expects that the settlement date for the Offer will be Nov. 30, 2020.
Pursuant to Rule 13e-4(c)(2) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), the Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") an Issuer Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, which contains additional information with respect to the Offer. The Schedule TO, including the exhibits and any amendments and supplements thereto, may be examined, and copies may be obtained, at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
