HARTFORD, Conn., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) today announced the final results for the previously announced debt tender offers (the "Offers") for outstanding Senior Notes due 2016 (the "2016 Notes") and Senior Notes due 2019 (the "2019 Notes") issued by the Goodrich Corporation, which is now a wholly owned subsidiary of UTC, and outstanding Senior Notes due 2015 (the "2015 Notes" and together with the 2016 Notes and the 2019 Notes, the "Notes") issued by UTC.  As of the expiration of the Offers at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 4, 2013 (the "Expiration Time"), approximately $102.9 million principal amount of the 2016 Notes, approximately $97.8 million principal amount of the 2019 Notes and approximately $673.5 million principal amount of the 2015 Notes (or a total of $874.2 million principal amount of all notes subject to the Offers) were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offers (including all Notes validly tendered prior to the "Early Tender Time" for the Offers, which was 5 p.m., New York City time, on May 21, 2013, and not validly withdrawn by the Withdrawal Deadline, which was May 20, 2013, at 5 p.m., New York City time).

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Offers, UTC has accepted for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offers at or prior to the Expiration Time and that have not previously been purchased on the Early Settlement Date, which was May 22, 2013 (the "Early Settlement Date"). Payment for Notes accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Time and before the Expiration Time will be made on or about June 5, 2013 (the "Final Settlement Date").

On May 24, 2013, UTC announced that it called for redemption all of the 2015 Notes that remain outstanding following the Final Settlement Date for the 2015 Notes.  The redemption date is June 24, 2013. The redemption price will be the greater of: (a) 100% of the principal amount of the 2015 Notes and (b) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the 2015 Notes, discounted to the redemption date, as described in the 2015 Notes, on a semi-annual basis, assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months, using a reference treasury rate plus 12.5 basis points.  In either case, the redemption price will also include interest on the principal balance of the 2015 Notes accrued to, but excluding, the redemption date.
