Element Solutions Inc. ESI entered a purchase agreement to sell $800 million total principal amount of 3.875% senior notes due 2028 at an issue price of $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount in connection with its earlier-announced private offering.

It is also being offered to non-U.S. residents, pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act.

Notably, the company expects gross proceeds from the sale of the notes to be roughly $800 million before deducting estimated fees and expenses.
