Rackspace Technology Global Announces Early Tender Offer Results and Amendment to Tender Offer
SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rackspace Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: RXT) (the “Company”) today announced the early tender results for its previously announced tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase for cash up to $600.0 million aggregate principal amount (the “Tender Cap”) of its approximately $1,120.2 million outstanding 8.625% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”).
The Company today also announced that it is amending the terms of the Tender Offer. The Company is now offering to pay the total consideration, including the early tender payment, to Holders who validly tender their Notes prior to the Expiration Time (as defined below). The total consideration for the Tender Offer is $1,057.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered, which includes the early tender payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered. Holders must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes, and have their Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer (subject to the Tender Cap and any required proration), at or prior to the Expiration Time in order to be eligible to receive the total consideration, including the early tender payment. Except as set forth above, the terms of the Tender Offer remain unchanged.
The Tender Offer is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated August 12, 2020, relating thereto (the “Offer to Purchase”), including the Tender Cap and any required proration.
As of the previously announced early tender deadline of 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 (the “Early Tender Time”), the Company has been advised by Global Bondholder Services Corporation, as Depositary for the Tender Offer, that $507.636 million in aggregate principal amount, or approximately 45.32%, of the outstanding Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn in the Tender Offer. The withdrawal deadline relating to the Tender Offer occurred at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Tuesday, August 25, 2020. Notes previously tendered and not withdrawn and Notes that are tendered after the withdrawal deadline may not be withdrawn, except as required by law. The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 (the “Expiration Time”), unless extended or earlier terminated.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, the Company is accepting for purchase all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Time, with the settlement date for such purchase expected to occur on or about August 27, 2020. Because the principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offer prior to the Early Tender Time is less than the Tender Cap, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, the Company intends to accept for purchase Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time and prior to the Expiration Time, subject to the Tender Cap and any required proration, as described in the Offer to Purchase.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is acting as the dealer manager (the “Dealer Manager”) for the Tender Offer. Global Bondholder Services Corporation is acting as the Depositary and the Information Agent for the Tender Offer. Questions regarding the Tender Offer should be directed to Citigroup Global Markets Inc. at (800) 558-3745 (toll-free) or (212) 723-6106 (collect). Requests for documentation should be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (212) 430-3774 (for banks and brokers) or (866) 470-3900 (for all others).
This announcement is for informational purposes only. This announcement is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the Notes. The Tender Offer is being made solely pursuant to the Offer to Purchase. The Tender Offer is not being made to holders of Notes in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Tender Offer to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Tender Offer will be deemed to be made on behalf of the Company by the Dealer Manager, or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
None of the Company or its affiliates, the Dealer Manager, the Depositary, the Information Agent or the trustee with respect to the Notes is making any recommendation as to whether holders should tender any Notes in the Tender Offer, and neither the Company nor any such other person has authorized any person to make any such recommendation. Holders must make their own decision as to whether to tender any of their Notes, and, if so, the principal amount of Notes to tender.
