SYDNEY, May 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 17, 2021, Boral Finance Pty Ltd (the "Company"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Boral Limited (ASX:BLD) ("Boral"), announced that it had commenced a tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 3.000% Guaranteed Senior Notes due 2022 (the "Notes"). The Tender Offer was made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase, dated May 17, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase"), which sets forth a more detailed description of the Tender Offer, and the related notice of guaranteed delivery.
The Company announced today that the Tender Offer expired at 5:00 pm, New York City time, today. According to information provided by D.F. King & Co. Inc., the tender and information agent for the Tender Offer, US$323,063,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, or 71.79% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the expiration of the Tender Offer. This amount includes US$100,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes which were tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase.
The Company's obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. The Company expects: (i) to pay for all such validly tendered Notes (other than those tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase) on May 24, 2021 (the "Initial Settlement Date"), and (ii) to pay for the Notes validly tendered and delivered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase on May 26, 2021.
Participating holders of Notes will receive the purchase price of US$1,032.93 for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase, plus accrued and unpaid interest from and including the interest payment date immediately preceding the Initial Settlement Date up to, but not including, the Initial Settlement Date. For the avoidance of doubt, accrued and unpaid interest will cease to accrue on the Initial Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offer, including those tendered by the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase.
