On March26, 2018, GCP Applied Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “GCP”) issued a press release announcing a proposed private offering (the “offering”) by the Company of senior notes (the “notes”). The Company also announced that it intends to amend its existing revolving credit facility to, among other things, (i)increase the aggregate principal amount of revolving commitments thereunder to up to $350million, (ii)extend the maturity thereof by approximately two years, and (iii)make certain other changes to the covenants and other provisions therein (the “Credit Facility Amendment”). A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
GCP intends to apply the net proceeds from the offering, together with up to $50million of borrowings under its credit facility and cash on hand, (i)to redeem and/or satisfy and discharge all of its $525million aggregate principal amount of outstanding 9.500% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Notes”) in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing such 2023 Notes, (ii)to pay fees and expenses related to the transactions described in this paragraph and (iii)for general corporate purposes.
The closing of the Credit Facility Amendment is subject to obtaining lender commitments and consents, as well as market and other conditions. However, the offering is not conditioned upon consummation of the Credit Facility Amendment. If GCP does not consummate the Credit Facility Amendment on or prior to the date the notes are first issued, less than all of the 2023 Notes will be redeemed in connection with the offering. This Current Report on Form 8-K is not an offer to purchase, nor a solicitation of an offer to sell, any securities, and shall not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to any outstanding notes of GCP.
The information furnished to this Current Report on Form 8-K (including exhibits hereto) shall not be considered “filed” under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into future filings by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or under Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, unless the Company expressly sets forth in such future filings that such information is considered “filed” or incorporated by reference herein.
