Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE: KSS) announced today the upsize and early tender results as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, April 9, 2021 (the "Early Tender Deadline") for the previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") for its 9.500% Notes due 2025, 4.250% Notes due 2025, 4.750% Notes due 2023 and 3.250% Notes due 2023 (collectively, the "Notes").
The principal amount of each series of Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offer as of the Early Tender Deadline is set forth in the table below.
Title of Security
9.500% Notes due 2025
4.250% Notes due 2025
4.750% Notes due 2023
3.250% Notes due 2023
Kohl’s further announced today that it has increased the maximum aggregate principal amount of Notes it may purchase in Tender Offer from $1,000,000,000 to $1,043,885,000 (the "New Maximum Amount"), which is the aggregate principal amount of Notes that had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offer as of the Early Tender Deadline. Based on the New Maximum Amount, Kohl’s expects to accept for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline. The settlement for the Tender Offer is expected to take place on April 13, 2021 (the "Settlement Date"). Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase dated March 29, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase")), to be calculated at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today by BofA Securities, Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, the Lead Dealer Managers, and to be announced by separate release later today. As previously announced, withdrawal rights for the Tender Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 9, 2021.
The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 23, 2021, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Time"). However, as Kohl’s intends, subject to terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, to accept for purchase the New Maximum Amount of Notes on the Settlement Date, further tenders of Notes prior to the Expiration Time will only be accepted for purchase if Kohl’s further amends the Tender Offer to increase the New Maximum Amount above the amount of Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Deadline. Kohl’s reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the New Maximum Amount. Subject to applicable law, the Tender Offer may be amended, extended, terminated or withdrawn with respect to one or more series of Notes.
The obligation of Kohl’s to accept for purchase, and to pay for, any Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase under the heading "Terms of the Tender Offer—Conditions of the Tender Offer," including, among other things, Kohl’s having issued not less than $400,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of new indebtedness through one or more new debt financing transactions on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Company (the "Financing Condition"). The Financing Condition was satisfied on March 31, 2021. On such date, Kohl’s issued $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.375% Notes due 2031. Amounts payable in excess of this amount in connection with the Tender Offer are intended to be paid with the Company’s cash on hand.
