The total shares will include 5.7 million Tenneco voting shares and 23.8 million non-voting Tenneco shares, which can be converted to voting shares at the time of sale. Both the voting and non - voting shares will be valued equally. For the initial 150 days of completing the deal, there will be a limit on the number of Tenneco shares that can be sold. Tenneco has the option of reducing the number of non-voting shares while proportionately increasing the cash amount at the time of closing.

The deal is expected to close in H2 2018 and is subject to regulatory and shareholders' approvals and other closing conditions. The deal is not subject to any financing condition.

Tenneco expects the deal to be accretive to its annual earnings by at least $200 million and its working capital by $250 million.

Tenneco's plans for Federal-Mogul

On completion of the deal, Tenneco plans to separate the business of Federal-Mogul into two independent and publicly-traded Companies, and which will also be combined with Tenneco's existing complementary businesses. One will be an aftermarket and ride performance Company, while the second one will be a powertrain technology Company. The Company expects the separation to be completed in H2 2019.

The Aftermarket and Ride Performance Company will integrate Tenneco's Ride Performance business and Federal-Mogul's Motor Parts business, and form one of the leading global aftermarket Company with a portfolio of some of the strongest brands. The Powertrain Technology Company will integrate Tenneco's Clean Air product line and Federal Mogul's Powertrain Business, and create one of the largest pure play powertrain suppliers with a robust portfolio of products and systems solutions.

Tenneco's rationale behind creating two independent Companies is to create leaders in their respective markets with strong financials, a broader portfolio of product and services, poised to take advantage of opportunities in their respective fields, and provide distinct investment opportunities for stakeholders.
