Motorola Solutions Announces Early Results of Its Tender Offers; Extends Total Consideration to Any and All Notes Tendered Through Expiration Date
In addition, the Company announced today that it has amended the terms of the Any and All Offer to change the amount of consideration payable for Any and All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Deadline from the applicable “Tender Offer Consideration” to the applicable “Total Consideration” for such Securities. Accordingly, Holders of Any and All Notes who validly tender such Securities following the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date will now receive the applicable Total Consideration for such Securities accepted for purchase, which includes the applicable Early Tender Premium specified in the table below. Subject to this amendment to the Any and All Offer, the tender offers are being made upon and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated May 9, 2019, and the related Letter of Transmittal (as they may each be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Tender Offer Documents”).
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2019 (the “Early Tender Deadline”), $162,869,000 aggregate principal amount of the Any and All Notes and $1,013,023,000 aggregate principal amount of the Waterfall Notes were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn in the tender offers. The withdrawal deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2019 has passed and, accordingly, Securities validly tendered in the tender offers may no longer be withdrawn except where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.
The following tables set forth certain information regarding the tender offers, including the aggregate principal amount of each series of Securities that were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline.
Subject to the Maximum Waterfall Tender Amount, the amount of each series of Waterfall Notes that are purchased in the Waterfall Offer will be determined in accordance with the acceptance priority levels specified in Table II above (the “Acceptance Priority Levels”), with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 3 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level.
Because the aggregate principal amount of validly tendered Waterfall Notes exceeded the Maximum Waterfall Tender Amount, the Waterfall Notes will be purchased subject to Acceptance Priority Levels and proration as described in the Offer to Purchase.
Holders of Securities that were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will receive the applicable “Total Consideration,” which includes the applicable Early Tender Premium specified in the tables above. Payments for Securities purchased will include accrued and unpaid interest from and including the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date for such Securities accepted for purchase. The settlement date for securities tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase is expected to be May 24, 2019 (the “Early Settlement Date”). The Company expects to issue a press release on May 23, 2019 announcing the Total Consideration payable in connection with the tender offers.
Although the tender offers are scheduled to expire at midnight, New York City time, at the end of June 6, 2019, unless extended or terminated (the “Expiration Date”), because the Waterfall Offer was fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any Waterfall Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline. Securities not accepted for purchase will be promptly returned or credited to the holder’s account.
The Company’s obligation to accept for payment and pay for the Securities validly tendered in the tender offers is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions, including a financing condition, described in the Offer to Purchase.
