WARSAW, Ind., Nov. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH) (the "Company") today announced early results of the previously announced tender offers (collectively, the "Tender Offers" and each a "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash (i) any and all of its 3.700% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "Any and All Notes") and (ii) up to the aggregate purchase price set forth below (excluding accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date (as defined below) and excluding fees and expenses related to the Tender Offers) (the "Aggregate Maximum Purchase Price") of its 3.550% Senior Notes due 2025, 3.550% Senior Notes due 2030, 4.450% Senior Notes due 2045, 3.050% Senior Notes due 2026, 4.250% Senior Notes due 2035 and 5.750% Senior Notes due 2039, subject to the tender caps, if applicable, the acceptance priority levels (the "Acceptance Priority Levels") noted in the second table below and proration procedures, if applicable (collectively, the "Maximum Tender Offer Notes," and together with the Any and All Notes, the "Securities").

Because all Maximum Tender Offer Notes at Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 2 that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase by the Company, no proration procedures will be required. No Maximum Tender Offer Notes at Acceptance Priority Levels 3 through 6, as set forth in the second table below, will be accepted for purchase.

Approximately $211.48 million in aggregate principal amount of Any and All Notes were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Date and will be accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date (as defined below).

The terms of the Tender Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 15, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase"), as amended by this press release.

All references to the aggregate purchase price for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes include the applicable Total Consideration (as defined below) and exclude applicable accrued interest and fees and expenses related to the Tender Offers.

Given that no Maximum Tender Offer Notes at Acceptance Priority Levels 3 through 6 will be accepted for purchase, the tender caps and principal amount tendered have been intentionally omitted.

*

Denotes a series of Securities for which the Total Consideration and the Tender Offer Consideration, if applicable, will be determined taking into account the par call date, instead of the maturity date, of such Securities in accordance with standard market practice.

The Tender Offers are being made upon, and are subject to, the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, as amended herein. Tenders of Securities may no longer be withdrawn except in certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.

Because the Company amended the Aggregate Maximum Purchase Price from $1.5 billion to an amount equal to the aggregate purchase price necessary to purchase all of Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 29, 2021 (the "Early Tender Date") at Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 2, only holders who validly tendered Maximum Tender Offer Notes at Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 2 prior to the Early Tender Date will have their Maximum Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase. No Maximum Tender Offer Notes will be accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Date.

The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time, on December 13, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the "Expiration Date"). Holders of Any and All Notes may still tender their Any and All Notes for purchase prior to the Expiration Date. Holders of Any and All Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date are not eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment (as defined below).

The consideration paid in each Tender Offer for Securities that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Securities plus the applicable yield to maturity of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the Offer to Purchase (the "Total Consideration"). Holders of Securities that were validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes an early tender payment as set forth in the Offer to Purchase (the "Early Tender Payment"). The Total Consideration will be determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, November 30, 2021 (the "Price Determination Date"), unless extended by the Company. Holders of Any and All Notes who validly tender their Securities after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date are only eligible to receive the applicable "Tender Offer Consideration," which is an amount equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Payment.

Payment for Securities purchased will include accrued and unpaid interest from the applicable last interest payment date for the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date for such Securities accepted for purchase.

The Company plans to have an early settlement. The settlement date for the Securities that were validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase is expected to be December 1, 2021, the second business day after the Early Tender Date (the "Early Settlement Date"). The settlement date for Any and All Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date is expected to be December 15, 2021, the second business day after the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date," and each of the Early Settlement Date and the Final Settlement Date is referred to as a "Settlement Date").

The Company confirms that the financing condition contained in the Offer to Purchase has been satisfied. The Company reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to (i) waive any and all conditions to any of the Tender Offers; (ii) extend or terminate any of the Tender Offers; (iii) increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Purchase Price; or (iv) otherwise amend any of the Tender Offers in any respect.

LLC are acting as the lead dealer managers for the Tender Offers (the "Lead Dealer Managers"), Mizuho Securities USA LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co.
