Mauser Announces Results to Date of Exchange Offer

OAK BROOK, Ill., April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mauser Packaging Solutions Holding Company (“Mauser“) today announced the interim results of its offer to exchange any and all $2,750 million of its outstanding principal amount of 7.875% Senior First Lien Notes due 2026 (the “Old Notes“) for newly issued 7.875% Senior First Lien Notes due 2027 (the “New Notes“), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Confidential Offering Memorandum, dated April 1, 2024 (the “Exchange Offer“).

As of 5:00 p.m. New York City time on April 12, 2024 (the “Early Tender Time“), a total of $2,595,611,000 principal amount of Old Notes had been tendered in the Exchange Offer, representing approximately 94.39% of the outstanding Old Notes.  The Exchange Offer is conditioned upon, among other things, the valid tender by eligible holders representing at least 80% of the aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes outstanding (the “Minimum Tender Condition“).  The Minimum Tender Condition has been met as of the Early Tender Time and initial settlement of the Exchange Offer will take place on April 16, 2024.

Eligible holders who validly tendered and did not withdraw their Old Notes prior to the Early Tender Time and whose Old Notes are accepted for exchange will receive $1,000 principal amount of New Notes per $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes tendered, along with accrued and unpaid interest in cash from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the initial settlement date for the Exchange Offer.

The Exchange Offer remains open until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 29, 2024 (the “Expiration Time“). The withdrawal deadline has passed and holders no longer have the right to withdraw any Old Notes previously tendered and will not have the right to withdraw any Old Notes tendered through the Expiration Time. For any Old Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time and prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for exchange, eligible holders will receive $950 in principal amount of New Notes per $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes, along with accrued and unpaid interest in cash from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the final settlement date for the Exchange Offer, which is expected to occur promptly after the Expiration Time.
