R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company Announces Cash Tender Offers for Certain of its Outstanding Debt Securities
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NYSE: RRD) (“RRD” or the “Company”) announced today that it has commenced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) to purchase up to $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount (which amount may be increased, the “Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount”) of its outstanding 7.625% Senior Notes due 2020, 7.875% Senior Notes due 2021, 8.875% Debentures due 2021 and 7.000% Senior Notes due 2022 (collectively, the “Securities”). No more than $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 7.000% Senior Notes due 2022 will be accepted for purchase (the “2022 Series Cap”). RRD intends to fund the Tender Offers with a portion of the net proceeds from a secured debt financing (the “Debt Financing”).
The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in the Company’s Offer to Purchase, dated September 18, 2018 (the “Offer to Purchase”). Terms not defined otherwise in this press release have the meanings given to them in the Offer to Purchase.
The following table sets forth certain terms of the Tender Offers:
The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, at the end of October 17, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Expiration Date”). No tenders submitted after the Expiration Date will be accepted.
Holders of Securities that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 2, 2018 (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Early Tender Date”) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be eligible to receive the Total Consideration for such series, which includes the early tender premium for such series of Securities set forth in the table above (with respect to each series of Securities, the “Early Tender Premium”). Holders of Securities tendering their Securities after the Early Tender Date will only be eligible to receive the tender offer consideration for such series of Securities set forth in the table above (with respect to each series of Securities, the “Tender Offer Consideration”), which is the applicable Total Consideration less the Early Tender Premium.
In addition to the Total Consideration or the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, holders whose Securities are accepted for purchase will receive accrued and unpaid interest (if any) on such Securities from the last interest payment date with respect to those Securities to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date (“Accrued Interest”).
Tendered Securities may be withdrawn at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 2, 2018, unless extended by RRD (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Withdrawal Date”). Holders may not withdraw their tendered Securities after the Withdrawal Date, unless withdrawal rights are otherwise required by applicable law.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the applicable Tender Offer, we may, but are not obligated to, elect following the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date to accept (with respect to each Tender Offer, the “Early Acceptance Date”) the Securities validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer on or prior to the applicable Early Tender Date (with respect to each Tender Offer, the “Early Settlement Option”) up to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount. If we exercise our Early Settlement Option with respect to any Tender Offer, we will announce such exercise (and notify holders of the Early Settlement Date) as soon as practicable after the Early Tender Date. If we exercise our Early Settlement Option with respect to any Tender Offer, we expect that payment for such Securities will occur following the applicable Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date (with respect to each series of Securities, the “Early Settlement Date”). We currently expect the Early Settlement Date to occur on or about October 15, 2018.
Subject to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, the 2022 Series Cap and proration, the Securities accepted on any Settlement Date will be accepted in accordance with their Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above, with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 4 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level, provided that Securities tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase before any Securities tendered after the Early Tender Date, but at or prior to the Expiration Date, regardless of the priority of the series of such later tendered Securities.
Acceptance for tenders of any Securities may be subject to proration in the Company’s sole discretion if the aggregate principal amount for any series of Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or the 2022 Series Cap to be exceeded. Furthermore, if the Tender Offers are fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who validly tender Securities after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Securities accepted for purchase and there will be no Final Settlement Date.
The Company reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or the 2022 Series Cap in the Company’s sole discretion at any time, subject to compliance with applicable law, which could result in the Company purchasing a greater aggregate principal amount of Securities in the Tender Offers. There can be no assurance that the Company will increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or the 2022 Series Cap. If the Company increases the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or the 2022 Series Cap, it does not expect to extend the Early Tender Date or the Withdrawal Date, unless required by applicable law. Accordingly, holders should not tender Securities that they do not wish to have purchased in the Tender Offers.
The consummation of the Tender Offers is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Securities being tendered. However, the Tender Offers are subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including the completion of the Debt Financing.
This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities. No offer, solicitation, purchase or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful. The offer is being made solely pursuant to terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
