Wayne, New Jersey (PRWEB) October 27, 2014
Building Materials Corporation of America (the “Company” or “BMCA”) today announced the commencement of cash tender offers for any and all of its outstanding senior notes listed below.
The tender offers are being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase, dated October 27, 2014, and a related Letter of Transmittal, dated October 27, 2014, which set forth a more detailed description of the tender offers.
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, the Letter of Transmittal and any amendments or supplements to the foregoing, BMCA is offering to purchase for cash (1) any and all $450 million outstanding principal amount of its 6⅞% Senior Notes due 2018, (2) any and all $250 million outstanding principal amount of its 7% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 and (3) any and all $325 million outstanding principal amount of its 7½% Senior Notes due 2020 (collectively, the “Notes”). The Company refers to its offer to purchase the Notes as the “Tender Offers.”
Holders must validly tender their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 7, 2014 (such date and time, as they may be extended, the “Early Tender Date”) to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as set forth in the table below). The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 24, 2014, unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, as they may be extended, the “Expiration Date”).
Title of Security/CUSIP No.: 6⅞% Senior Notes due 2018/120111 BK4 / U09005AL0
Principal Amount Outstanding: $450,000,000
Tender Offer Consideration (1): $1,028.50
Early Tender Premium (1): $10.00
Total Consideration (1)(2): $1,038.50
Title of Security/CUSIP No.: 7% Senior Secured Notes due 2020/120111 BH1 / U09005 AJ5
Principal Amount Outstanding: $250,000,000
Tender Offer Consideration (1): $1,041.78
Early Tender Premium (1): $10.00
Total Consideration (1)(2): $1,051.78
Title of Security/CUSIP No.: 7½% Senior Notes due 2020/120111 BJ7 / U09005 AJ5
Principal Amount Outstanding: $325,000,000
Tender Offer Consideration (1): $1,051.31
Early Tender Premium (1): $10.00
Total Consideration (1)(2): $1,061.31
(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase.
(2) The Total Consideration includes the Early Tender Premium and is payable only in respect of Notes which are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Premium Deadline and which are accepted for payment.
BMCA’s obligation to accept for payment and to pay for any of the Notes in any of the Tender Offers is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, including the completion by BMCA of a public offering of not less than $1.1 billion in aggregate principal amount of Notes due 2024 no later than the Early Settlement Date on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Company. The Tender Offers are not contingent upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of Notes. BMCA reserves the right to waive any one or more of the conditions at any time.
The tender offer consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be the applicable tender offer consideration for such series of Notes set forth in the table above (with respect to each series, the applicable “Tender Offer Consideration”). If applicable, Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase by BMCA will receive the Total Consideration, which is equal to the Tender Offer Consideration for the applicable Notes plus the Early Tender Premium for such Notes, payable on the Early Settlement Date, all set forth in the table above. Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Date but before the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase by BMCA will receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, payable on the Final Settlement Date, but will not receive the Early Tender Premium.
Notes that are tendered and accepted for purchase at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be settled only on the date that BMCA refers to as the “Early Settlement Date,” which will promptly follow the Early Tender Date. BMCA anticipates that the Early Settlement Date for the Notes will be the first business day after the Early Tender Date. Notes that are tendered and accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Date but before the Expiration Date, will be settled only on the date that BMCA refers to as the “Final Settlement Date,” which will promptly follow the Expiration Date. BMCA anticipates that the Final Settlement Date for the Notes will be the first business day after the Expiration Date.
In addition to the applicable Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Consideration, as the case may be, all Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on those Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable, for each series of Notes.
BMCA has retained Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. to serve as dealer manager for the Tender Offers. D. F. King & Co., Inc. has been retained to serve as the depositary and information agent for the Tender Offers.

The Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal are expected to be distributed to holders of Notes beginning today. Copies of the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal related to the Tender Offers may also be obtained at no charge from D. F. King & Co., Inc.
