Bombardier Announces Cash Tender Offer for Certain Outstanding Senior Notes
MONTREAL, June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bombardier Inc. (“Bombardier” or the “Company”) today announced the commencement of a cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase for cash up to $1,000,000,000 aggregate purchase price (exclusive of accrued and unpaid interest) (as such aggregate purchase price may be increased or decreased by the Company, the “Aggregate Maximum Purchase Amount”) of its outstanding Notes of the three series listed in the table below (collectively, the “Notes”); provided that the Company will only accept for purchase its 6.125% Senior Notes due 2023 having an aggregate purchase price of up to $500,000,000 (exclusive of accrued and unpaid interest) (as such aggregate purchase price for such 2023 Notes may be increased or decreased by the Company, the “2023Tender Cap”). The Tender Offer is being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase dated June 3, 2021.
The table below summarizes certain payment terms for the Tender Offer:
|Title of Note||CUSIP / ISIN|
|CUSIP / ISIN|
|5.750% Senior Notes due 2022||097751AY7 /|
|6.125% Senior Notes due 2023||097751BF7 /|
|6.000% Senior Notes due 2022||097751BJ9 /|
(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase.
(2) Excludes accrued and unpaid interest, which will be paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Consideration, as applicable.
(3) Includes the applicable Early Tender Payment.
(4) The Acceptance Priority Level will be applied separately at the Early Tender Date and at the Expiration Date.
The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time, on June 30, 2021 unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, including as extended or earlier terminated, the "Expiration Date"). Registered holders (each, a "Holder" and collectively, the "Holders") of the Notes must validly tender their Notes at or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2021 (such date and time, including as extended or earlier terminated, the "Early Tender Date") in order to be eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration (as defined below).
Tenders of the Notes may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Withdrawal Deadline”), and not thereafter, except in limited circumstances where withdrawal rights may be required by applicable law.
The Notes will be purchased in accordance with the "Acceptance Priority Level" (in numerical priority order) as set forth in the table above (the "Acceptance Priority Level"), with Acceptance Priority Level 1 being the highest and Acceptance Priority Level 3 being the lowest, and possible proration of the Notes on the Early Settlement Date (as defined below) or the Final Settlement Date (as defined below) will be determined in accordance with the terms of the Tender Offer; provided that notwithstanding the Acceptance Priority Level for the 6.125% Senior Notes due 2023, the amount of such Notes that will be accepted in the Tender Offer is limited by the 2023 Tender Cap; and further provided that Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase in priority to Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, even if such Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date.
Accordingly, if the aggregate total purchase price payable for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase equals or exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Purchase Amount, Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any such Notes accepted for payment regardless of the Acceptance Priority Level of such Notes (unless the terms of the Tender Offer are amended by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion).
If, on the Early Settlement Date or Final Settlement Date, as applicable, only a portion of the tendered Notes of a series of Notes may be accepted for purchase, the aggregate principal amount of such series of Notes accepted for purchase will be prorated based upon the aggregate principal amount of that series of Notes that have been validly tendered and not yet accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, such that the Aggregate Maximum Purchase Amount and the 2023 Tender Cap (with respect to the 6.125% Senior Notes due 2023) will not be exceeded.
The Total Consideration includes, in each case, an early tender payment (the “Early Tender Payment”) of $30 for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes, which Early Tender Payment is in addition to, in each case, the applicable Tender Offer Consideration (as defined below).
Subject to purchase in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Level, the Aggregate Maximum Purchase Amount, the 2023 Tender Cap and possible proration, Holders validly tendering Notes (that have not been validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration listed in the table above, which includes the Early Tender Payment, on the “Early Settlement Date”, which is expected to be the second business day after the Early Tender Date, but that may change without notice. Holders validly tendering Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date will only be eligible to receive the applicable “Tender Offer Consideration” listed in the table on the “Final Settlement Date”. The Final Settlement Date is expected to be the second business day after the Expiration Date, but that may change without notice. In addition to the Total Consideration or Tender Offer Consideration, Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.
The obligation of the Company to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Company. The Tender Offer is not conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered. However, Bombardier’s obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes in the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, including Bombardier’s completion of its offering of new Senior Notes (the “New Offering”) at or prior to the Expiration Date, on terms satisfactory to Bombardier, the proceeds of which New Offering (net of transaction fees and expenses) will be used to finance its purchase of Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer. Bombardier intends to complete the New Offering at or prior to the Expiration Date. Its obligation to accept for purchase any Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer is expressly conditioned on the completion of the New Offering on terms satisfactory to Bombardier. For avoidance of doubt, references in the Offer to Purchase to “completion” of the New Offering mean completion of the closing under such New Offering at which closing the Company receives the anticipated proceeds from the New Offering. No assurance can be given that the New Offering will be completed on the terms currently envisioned or at all. If such condition shall not have been satisfied, no payments will be made to tendering Holders on the Early Settlement Date or Final Settlement Date, as applicable.
None of Bombardier, the trustees for the Notes, the agents under the respective indentures for the Notes, the dealer managers, the information and tender agent, any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates or any of its or their respective directors, officers, employees or representatives makes any recommendation to Holders as to whether or not to tender all or any portion of their Notes, and none of the foregoing has authorized any person to make any such recommendation. Holders must decide whether to tender Notes, and if tendering, the amount of Notes to tender.
All of the Notes are held in book-entry form. If you hold Notes through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee, you must contact such broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee if you wish to tender Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer. You should check with such broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee to determine whether they will charge you a fee for tendering Notes on your behalf. You should also confirm with the broker, dealer, bank, trust company or other nominee any deadlines by which you must provide your tender instructions, because the relevant deadline set by such nominee may be earlier than the deadlines set forth herein.
Bombardier has retained J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. to serve as dealer managers for the Tender Offer. Bombardier has retained Global Bondholder Services Corporation to act as the information and tender agent in respect of the Tender Offer.
For additional information regarding the terms of the Tender Offer, please contact J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. at their respective telephone numbers set forth on the back cover page of the Offer to Purchase. Copies of the Offer to Purchase may be obtained at https://www.gbsc-usa.com/bombardier/ or by contacting Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (866) 807 2200 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Tender Offer is made only by and pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase and the information in this notice is qualified by reference to the Offer to Purchase. None of the Company, the dealer managers or the information and tender agent makes any recommendations as to whether Holders should tender their Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer.
This announcement does not constitute an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any securities in any jurisdiction or in any circumstances in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful. In those jurisdictions where the securities, blue sky or other laws require the Tender Offer to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Tender Offer will be deemed to be made by the dealer managers or one or more registered brokers or dealers licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
