Tapestry, Inc. Announces Early Tender Results for Cash Tender Offer
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tapestry, Inc. (NYSE: TPR) (the “Company”), a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, today announced the early tender results as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, November 29, 2021 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) for the previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount (the “Maximum Amount”) of the Company’s 4.250% Notes due 2025 and 4.125% Notes due 2027 (collectively, the “Notes”).
The principal amount of each series of Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offer as of the Early Tender Deadline is set forth in the table below.
Title of Security
Aggregate Principal Amount Outstanding
Acceptance Priority Level(1)
Principal Amount Tendered
4.250% Notes due 2025
4.125% Notes due 2027
(1) The Company intends to accept a maximum of $500,000,000 in principal amount of validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) Notes in the Tender Offer using a “waterfall” methodology under which the Company will accept the Notes in order of their respective acceptance priority levels noted in the table above. Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or before the Early Tender Deadline having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted before any tendered Notes having a lower Acceptance Priority Level are accepted.
The settlement for the Tender Offer is expected to take place on December 1, 2021 (the “Settlement Date”). Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase dated November 15, 2021 (the “Offer to Purchase”)), to be calculated at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today by BofA Securities, Inc., HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, the Dealer Managers, and to be announced by separate release later today. As previously announced, withdrawal rights for the Tender Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 29, 2021.
The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 13, 2021, (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). However, as the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered at the Early Tender Deadline exceeded the Maximum Amount, it is expected that further tenders of Notes prior to the Expiration Time will not be accepted for purchase.
The obligation of the Company to accept for purchase, and to pay for, any Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase under the heading “Terms of the Tender Offer—Conditions of the Tender Offer,” including, among other things, the Company having issued not less than $500,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of new indebtedness through one or more new debt financing transactions on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Company (the “Financing Condition”). The Company expects that the Financing Condition will be satisfied on December 1, 2021. On such date, the Company expects to issue $500,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 3.050% Notes due 2032. Amounts payable in excess of the net proceeds of such issuance in connection with the Tender Offer are expected to be paid with the Company’s cash on hand or other amounts available to the Company.
This press release is neither an offer to purchase securities nor a solicitation of participation in the Tender Offer. No offer, solicitation, purchase or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The Tender Offer is being made solely pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
