BOCA RATON, Fl., April 1, 2019 – ADT Inc. (NYSE: ADT) (the “Company” or “ADT”), a leading provider of monitored security and interactive home and business automation solutions in the United States and Canada, announced today the preliminary results of the previously announced tender offer to purchase for cash (the “Tender Offer”) up to $2,246 million aggregate principal amount of the 9.250% Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) of Prime Security Services Borrower, LLC and Prime Finance Inc. (the “Offerors”).
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 29, 2019, the early tender deadline with respect to the Tender Offer (the “Early Tender Time”), ADT has been advised by D.F. King & Co., Inc., tender and information agent for the Tender Offer that the Offerors have received tenders from the holders of $1,672,979,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer, representing approximately 74.49% of the outstanding Notes.
The Offerors expect to accept for purchase $1,000 million aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Time on April 4, 2019. The Notes will be accepted from holders on a pro rata basis pursuant to the terms of the Tender Offer.
Each holder who validly tendered its Notes in the Tender Offer prior to the Early Tender Time, and did not validly withdraw such notes, will receive, if the Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, $1,053.04 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which includes an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes so tendered.
Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Time may no longer be withdrawn, except to the extent that the Offerors are required by law to provide additional withdrawal rights.
Holders of the Notes may still participate in the Tender Offer until the expiration time of the Tender Offer, at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of Friday, April 12, 2019, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”).
The consideration for the Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time but prior to the Expiration Time will be $1,023.04 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes so tendered. Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time will have no withdrawal rights, except to the extent that the Offerors are required by law to provide additional withdrawal rights.
The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are detailed in the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal (collectively, the “Offering Documents”). The Offerors’ obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer Documents. The Offerors may amend, extend or, subject to certain conditions and applicable law, terminate the Tender Offer at any time in their sole discretion.
