Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPB) and Spectrum Brands, Inc. (“Spectrum Brands”) today announced the completion of Spectrum Brands’ cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase any and all of its outstanding 9.500% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 (the "Notes"). The Tender Offer expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on September 3, 2013 (the “expiration date”). Spectrum Brands received tenders from the holders of $898,067,000 of its outstanding Notes. Spectrum Brands has accepted for purchase all Notes which were validly tendered prior to the expiration date.
In addition, Spectrum Brands announced that it has deposited sufficient funds in trust with the Trustee under the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”) to satisfy and discharge the Notes and the Indenture, and the Trustee has acknowledged such satisfaction and discharge. Notwithstanding the satisfaction and discharge of the Notes and the Indenture, certain customary provisions of the Indenture relating to the compensation and indemnification of the Trustee and the application of trust money will survive. Spectrum Brands has instructed the Trustee to redeem the remaining $51,933,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of such Notes plus the Applicable Premium (as defined in the Indenture), as of, and accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the redemption date. The redemption of the Notes will occur on October 7, 2013.
Spectrum Brands financed the Tender Offer and the satisfaction and discharge with new term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $1,150 million.
