ACCO Brands Corporation Announces Exchange Offer For 6.75% Senior Notes Due 2020

Stocks in this article: ACCO

LAKE ZURICH, Ill., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACCO Brands Corporation (NYSE: ACCO) (the "Company") announced today that it has commenced an offer to enable holders of its outstanding privately placed $500 million aggregate principal amount of 6.75% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "Old Notes") to exchange any and all of the Old Notes for a like principal amount of 6.75% Senior Notes due 2020 that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "New Notes").


The sole purpose of the exchange offer is to fulfill the Company's obligation to offer New Notes in exchange for Old Notes as required under the registration rights agreement that the Company entered into in connection with the sale of the Old Notes.  Because the Company issued the Old Notes in a private placement transaction, the Old Notes are subject to transfer restrictions.  The exchange offer will allow for the exchange of Old Notes for New Notes that are substantially identical to the Old Notes, except that the New Notes have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and, accordingly, the transfer restrictions and registration rights provisions relating to the Old Notes will not apply to the New Notes.

Following the completion of the exchange offer, the Company will continue to have $500 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes outstanding.

The exchange offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2013, unless extended by the Company.  Valid tenders of the Old Notes must be made, and may be withdrawn at any time, before the exchange offer expires.

The terms of the exchange offer and other information relating to the Company are set forth in a prospectus dated May 17, 2013, the letter of transmittal and related materials.  The Company urges holders of the Old Notes to read the prospectus, letter of transmittal and related materials because they contain important information about the exchange offer.  Holders of the Old Notes may obtain the prospectus and related materials from Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, the exchange agent for the exchange offer, which can be contacted at:
