Jarden Corporation Announces Pricing Of $450 Million Private Offering Of Senior Subordinated Convertible Notes

RYE, N.Y., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jarden Corporation (NYSE: JAH) (the " Company") announced today the pricing of $450 million in aggregate principal amount of Senior Subordinated Convertible Notes (the " Convertible Notes") due 2018 in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  The Company has also granted the initial purchasers an option to purchase up to an additional $50 million aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes.

The Convertible Notes will pay interest semiannually at a rate of 1.875% per annum.  Upon conversion, holders will receive, at the Company's discretion, cash, shares of the Company's common stock or a combination thereof.  The conversion rate will be 14.1152 shares of the Company's common stock (subject to customary adjustments) per $1,000 principal amount of the Convertible Notes, which is equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $70.85 per share, which represents a conversion premium of 34.0% to the closing sale price of $52.87 per share of the Company's common stock on September 12, 2012.

The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the sale of the Convertible Notes will be approximately $437 million, after deducting estimated fees and expenses.  

The Company intends to use approximately $100 million of the net proceeds from the sale of the Convertible Notes to repurchase shares of its common stock under its stock repurchase program at a price per share of $52.87 through negotiated transactions with investors in the Convertible Notes offering.  The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes.

The sale of the Convertible Notes and the repurchase of the shares of the Company's common stock are expected to close on September 18, 2012.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Convertible Notes or the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Notes, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
