·7 min read

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Target Corporation ("Target") (NYSE: TGT) today announced the pricing terms of its previously–announced cash tender offers (collectively, the "Offers") for an aggregate purchase price sufficient to allow Target to accept for purchase all of the debt securities identified in the table below (collectively referred to as the "Securities" and each referred to as a "series" of Securities) validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline referenced below (excluding accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the settlement date and excluding fees and expenses related to the Offers) (the "Amended Maximum Tender Amount") from each registered holder of Securities (individually, a "Holder," and collectively, the "Holders"). Subject to the Amended Maximum Tender Amount, the Offers and order of priority (the "Acceptance Priority Levels") set forth in the table below are as described in the Offer to Purchase, dated September 23, 2020, as amended or supplemented (the "Offer to Purchase").

The "Total Consideration" for each series per $1,000 principal amount of Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers was determined by reference to the applicable fixed spread over the yield to maturity based on the bid side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Security, in each case as set forth in the table below, and is payable to Holders of the Securities who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Securities on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020 (the "Early Tender Deadline") and whose Securities are accepted for purchase by Target. The Reference Yields (as determined pursuant to the Offer to Purchase) listed in the table were determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, October 7, 2020, by the lead dealer managers (identified below). The Total Consideration for each series of Securities includes an early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by such Holders and accepted for purchase by Target.

As announced yesterday, Target has amended the Offers by increasing the Maximum Tender Amount disclosed in the Offer to Purchase to the Amended Maximum Tender Amount, which has now been established as $2.246 billion.

(1) Includes the Early Tender Premium.

(2) Per $1,000 principal amount of the Securities that are tendered and accepted for purchase.

(3) As of the Early Tender Deadline.

All payments for Securities purchased in connection with the Early Tender Deadline will also include accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of Securities purchased from the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the early settlement date, which is expected to occur on October 8, 2020.

Target expects to accept for purchase on the early settlement date the aggregate principal amount of each series of the Securities set forth in the column titled, "Aggregate Principal Amount Expected to be Accepted for Purchase," in the table above.

As described in the Offer to Purchase, Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase in priority to other Securities validly tendered following the Early Tender Deadline even if such Securities validly tendered following the Early Tender Deadline have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Securities validly tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Although the Offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 21, 2020, because the Amended Maximum Tender Amount equals the aggregate purchase price required to accept all Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Deadline, Target does not expect to accept for purchase any tenders of Securities after the Early Tender Deadline. Any Securities tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will be promptly credited to the account of the Holder of such Securities maintained at The Depository Trust Company and otherwise returned in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.

In accordance with the terms of the Offers, the withdrawal deadline was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020. As a result, tendered Securities may not be withdrawn, except in certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law (as determined by Target).

Target reserves the absolute right, subject to applicable law, to: (i) waive any and all conditions to the Offers; (ii) extend or terminate the Offers; (iii) increase or decrease the Maximum Tender Amount without extending the Early Tender Deadline or the Withdrawal Deadline; or (iv) otherwise amend the Offers in any respect.
