Tomkins, LLC and Tomkins, Inc. today announced the early tender offer results of the previously announced tender offer.

Tomkins, LLC and Tomkins, Inc. (referred to jointly as the “Company”) today announced the early tender offer results of the previously announced tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for up to $475 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes Due 2018 (the “Notes”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) to amend certain terms of the Notes and the indenture governing the Notes (“Indenture”) to allow the Company to increase its capacity to make restricted payments under the Indenture.

As of the early tender and consent payment deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 5, 2012 (the “Early Tender/Consent Deadline”), holders of $869,867,000 in aggregate principal amount, or approximately 84.05 percent, of the Notes outstanding held by non-affiliates have validly tendered and not withdrawn their Notes. Holders of an additional $39,147,000 in aggregate principal amount, or approximately 3.78 percent, of the Notes outstanding held by non-affiliates, have not tendered Notes, but have validly delivered and not revoked consents with respect to their Notes.

As the Tender Offer is oversubscribed, the Company intends to accept for purchase Notes validly tendered at or prior to the expiration date and time of 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on July 19, 2012 (such date and time, the “Expiration Time”) on a prorated basis in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement (the “Statement”) and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Statement. The previously announced withdrawal deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 3, 2012 has passed. Holders who tender Notes after the Early Tender/Consent Deadline but before the Expiration Time will not have any withdrawal rights and will only be eligible to receive the tender offer consideration set forth in the Statement with respect to any of their Notes accepted for purchase by the Company.

As of the Early Tender/Consent Deadline, holders of more than a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes have validly delivered and not revoked consents to adopt the proposed amendments to the Indenture pursuant to which the Notes were issued. As a result, the Company and the trustee under the Indenture intend to promptly execute a supplemental indenture to amend the Indenture governing the Notes, which will increase the Company’s capacity to make restricted payments under the Indenture.
