L3 Technologies, Inc. Announces the Pricing Terms of Its Tender Offers for Any and All of its Outstanding 5.20% Senior Notes due 2019 and its Outstanding 4.75% Senior Notes due 2020
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 5, 2018--L3 Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:LLL) (“L3”) announced today the pricing terms of the previously announced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) for any and all of the $1,000,000,000 outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 5.20% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”) and any and all of the $800,000,000 outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 4.75% Senior Notes due 2020 (together with the 2019 Notes, the “Notes”).
Certain information regarding the Notes and the pricing for the Tender Offers is set forth in the table below.
The Tender Offers consist of offers on the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and the related letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery (as they may each be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Tender Offer Documents”), to purchase for cash any and all of the Notes.
The Tender Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 5, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Date”). Holders of Notes must validly tender (including by notice of guaranteed delivery) and not validly withdraw their Notes prior to or at the Expiration Date to be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration.
Holders who validly tender their Notes may validly withdraw their tendered Notes at any time prior to the earlier of (i) the Expiration Date and (ii) if the Tender Offers are extended, the 10 th business day after commencement of the Tender Offers. Notes may also be validly withdrawn at any time after the 60th business day after commencement of the Tender Offers if for any reason the Tender Offers have not been consummated by that date.
The “Tender Offer Consideration” listed in the table above for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers was determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Documents by reference to a fixed spread specified in the table above with respect to each series of Notes plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above with respect to each series of Notes as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 5, 2018.
Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the date the Company initially makes payment for such Notes, which date is anticipated to be June 6, 2018 (the “Settlement Date”). Notes tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery and accepted for purchase will be purchased on the third business day after the Expiration Date but payment of accrued interest on such Notes will only be made to, but not including, the Settlement Date.
L3 intends to fund the purchase price for the Notes tendered in the Tender Offers with the proceeds from a concurrent offering of senior notes (the “New Notes “) and cash on hand. The Tender Offers are contingent upon the receipt of the net proceeds from the offering of the New Notes Offering (unless waived). Additional terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are set forth in the Tender Offer Documents.
Holders are urged to read the Tender Offer Documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offers. Copies of the Tender Offer Documents are available at http://www.dfking.com/L3 or may be obtained from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the Information Agent for the Tender Offers, at (866) 304-5477 (toll-free) or (212) 269-5550 (banks and brokers).
