RSI Home Products, Inc. (“RSI”), a leading manufacturer of kitchen, bath and home storage cabinets in North America, announced today that it is commencing a cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) with respect to any and all of its outstanding 6.875% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”). The purpose of the Tender Offer is for RSI to acquire any and all of its outstanding Notes, whether pursuant to the Tender Offer or in connection with any redemption of any Notes outstanding after the consummation of the Tender Offer and, together with the debt financing transaction to fund the Tender Offer, extend the maturity of certain of RSI’s indebtedness.
In conjunction with the Tender Offer, RSI is soliciting consents (“Consents”) from holders of the Notes to certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture (the “Indenture”) governing the Notes (the “Consent Solicitation”). The Proposed Amendments would amend the indenture to eliminate most of the covenants and certain default provisions applicable to the Notes, as well as shorten the notice required to be given to holders from 30 days to 3 days in the case of a redemption of the Notes. The Consent Solicitation is intended to eliminate most of the covenants and certain events of default applicable to the Notes. On the Initial Settlement Date or, if the Initial Settlement Date does not occur, the Final Settlement Date, RSI intends to issue a notice of redemption and concurrently discharge its obligations under the Notes and the Indenture in accordance with the satisfaction and discharge provisions of the Indenture.
Delivery of consents to the Proposed Amendments by holders of at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes (excluding Notes owned by RSI or any of its affiliates) is required for the adoption of the Proposed Amendments.
The Notes and other information relating to the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are set forth in the table below.
|CUSIP||Amount||Tender Offer||Early Tender||Total|
|Secured Second Lien||74977XAA9||US74977XAA90|
|Notes due 2018||U7501XAA1||USU7501XAA10||$525,000,000||$1,024.06||$30.00||$1,054.06|
(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes and excluding accrued and unpaid interest, which will be paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration or Total Consideration, as applicable. Participating holders will receive accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on their accepted Notes up to but not including the applicable settlement date.
Each holder who validly tenders and does not withdraw its Notes and validly delivers and does not revoke its corresponding Consents prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 13, 2015 (as may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Early Tender Time”) will receive, if such Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation, the total consideration of $1,054.06 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered, which includes the tender offer consideration of $1,024.06 and an early tender premium of $30.00. Holders who validly tender and do not withdraw their Notes and validly deliver and do not revoke their corresponding Consents after the Early Tender Time but prior to the Expiration Time will receive only the tender offer consideration of $1,024.06 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and will not be entitled to receive an early tender premium if such Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation. In addition, accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date of the Notes will be paid in cash on all validly tendered and accepted Notes.
The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are scheduled to expire at 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on March 28, 2015, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Expiration Time”). Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on March 13, 2015 (unless such deadline is extended) but not thereafter, except to the extent that RSI is required by law to provide additional withdrawal rights.
Subject to the terms and conditions described below, payment of the tender offer consideration and an early tender premium to holders who tendered Notes prior to the Early Tender Time will occur after the Early Tender Time (the “Initial Settlement Date”). Payment of the tender offer consideration to holders who tendered notes prior to the Expiration Time but after the Early Tender Time will occur promptly after the Expiration Time (the “Final Settlement Date”).
The consummation of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation is conditioned upon, among other things, (i) RSI’s consummation of an amendment and restatement of its existing $75 million existing revolving credit facility entered into on February 22, 2013 (the “Senior Secured Revolver”), which include, among other things, modifications to permit this Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation and the Financing Transaction and its possession of funds sufficient to pay the tender offer consideration and early tender premium, accrued and unpaid interest and all related fees and expenses with respect to all Notes (regardless of the amount of Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer), (ii) the valid tender of Notes (which are not withdrawn) by holders of at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes (excluding Notes owned by RSI or any of its affiliates), and (iii) the execution, delivery and effectiveness of the supplement to the Indenture, which will implement the Proposed Amendments. If any of the conditions is not satisfied, RSI may terminate the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation and return tendered Notes. RSI has the right to waive any of the foregoing conditions with respect to the Notes in whole or in part. In addition, RSI has the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation at any time, subject to applicable law.

The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are set forth in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated March 2, 2015, and the related Letter of Transmittal (the “Tender Offer Documents”) that are being sent to holders of the Notes.
