Masonite International Corporation (NYSE: DOOR) announced today that it is proposing to issue an additional $100 million aggregate principal amount of its 8¼% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), subject to market and other conditions. The notes are expected to be treated as a single series with, and will have the same terms as those of, the $375 million aggregate principal amount of currently outstanding 8¼% Senior Notes due 2021 previously issued by the Company. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes for general corporate purposes, which may include funding future acquisitions. The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States, only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S. The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from, or a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the notes, nor does it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
