**** The Company reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and for any reason, to significantly increase or decrease the Maximum Acceptance Amount and/or to accept significantly less than or more than the Maximum Acceptance Amount (or not to accept any Notes) for purchase pursuant to any Offer.
Rationale for the Offers
The Company is making the Offers as a way of managing the CNH Industrial group’s financial liabilities and cost of debt financing. The Company will use cash on hand and borrowings under its existing credit facilities to fund the Offers. The Company’s intention is to cancel, on or around the Settlement Date, all of the Existing Notes that have been accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers.
Purchase Price and Accrued Interest
The Company will pay, for the 2021 Notes, 2022 Notes and 2023 Notes accepted by it for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer, a price (the relevant Purchase Price, expressed as a percentage and rounded to the third decimal place, with 0.0005 being rounded upwards) as described below and as detailed further in the Tender Offer Memorandum.
The Purchase Price in respect of the 2021 Notes (the 2021 Purchase Price) shall be determined in the manner described in this Tender Offer Memorandum by reference to a yield of 0 per cent. (the 2021 Purchase Yield). The 2021 Purchase Price will be determined in accordance with market convention and expressed as a percentage of the nominal amount of the 2021 Notes, and is intended to reflect a yield to maturity of the 2021 Notes on the Settlement Date equal to the 2021 Purchase Yield (assuming the full payment of principal on such date). Specifically, the 2021 Purchase Price will equal (a) the value of all remaining payments of principal and interest on the 2021 Notes up to and including the scheduled maturity date of the 2021 Notes, minus (b) the relevant Accrued Interest.
The Purchase Price in respect of the 2022 Notes (the 2022 Purchase Price) shall be determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum by reference to a yield of 0 per cent. (the 2022 Purchase Yield). The 2022 Purchase Price will be determined in accordance with market convention and expressed as a percentage of the nominal amount of the 2022 Notes, and is intended to reflect a yield to the first date on which the Company may exercise the Issuer Maturity Par Call under the terms of the 2022 Notes, being 23 February 2022 (assuming the full payment of principal on such date) on the Settlement Date equal to the 2022 Purchase Yield.
The Purchase Price in respect of the 2023 Notes (the 2023 Purchase Price) shall be determined at or around 1.00 p.m. (CET) (the Pricing Time) on 6 December 2019 (the Pricing Date) in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum by reference to a yield (such yield, the 2023 Purchase Yield and, together with the 2021 Purchase Yield and the 2022 Purchase Yield, each a Purchase Yield) calculated as the sum of (a) a purchase spread of 45 bps (the 2023 Purchase Spread) and (b) the Interpolated Mid-Swap Rate. The 2023 Purchase Price will be determined in accordance with market convention and expressed as a percentage of the nominal amount of the 2023 Notes, and is intended to reflect a yield to maturity of the 2023 Notes on the Settlement Date equal to the 2023 Purchase Yield.
The Company will also pay, in relation to each Series of Existing Notes, an Accrued Interest Payment in respect of Existing Notes of such Series accepted for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer.
Maximum Acceptance Amount
The Company proposes to accept valid tenders of Existing Notes for purchase pursuant to the Offers such that the aggregate nominal amount accepted is no greater than an amount (the Maximum Acceptance Amount) equal to €300,000,000.
If the Company decides, in its sole and absolute discretion, to accept valid tenders of Existing Notes pursuant to the Offers, it will accept for purchase up to an aggregate nominal amount of Existing Notes equal to the Maximum Acceptance Amount. The Company will determine the allocation of the nominal amount accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers between the 2021 Notes, the 2022 Notes and the 2023 Notes in its sole and absolute discretion, and reserves the right to accept significantly more or less (or none) of the Existing Notes of one Series as compared to the other Series of Existing Notes. For the avoidance of doubt, the Company reserves the right to accept, in its sole and absolute discretion, only the 2021 Notes, only the 2022 Notes or only the 2023 Notes.
In addition, the Company reserves the right to significantly increase or decrease, in its sole and absolute discretion and for any reason, the Maximum Acceptance Amount at any time, including after the Expiration Deadline.
Series Acceptance Amounts and Scaling of Offers
Series Acceptance Amounts
If the Company accepts any Existing Notes of a Series for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer and the aggregate nominal amount of such Series validly offered for purchase is greater than the final aggregate nominal amount of a Series accepted for purchase (in respect of such Series, the Series Acceptance Amount), the Company intends to accept Existing Notes of such Series for purchase on a pro rata basis in the manner set out under “Scaling of Offers” in the Tender Offer Memorandum, such that the aggregate nominal amount of such Series accepted for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer is no greater than the relevant Series Acceptance Amount. See further “Scaling of Offers” in the Tender Offer Memorandum.
In order to participate in, and be eligible to receive the relevant Purchase Price and relevant Accrued Interest Payment pursuant to, the relevant Offer, Noteholders must validly tender their Existing Notes by delivering, or arranging to have delivered on their behalf, a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the Tender Agent by 5.00 p.m. (CET) on 5 December 2019 (the Expiration Deadline).
Tender Instructions will be irrevocable except in the limited circumstances described in the Tender Offer Memorandum.
Tender Instructions must be submitted in respect of a nominal amount of Existing Notes of any Series of no less than €100,000, being the minimum denomination of each Series of Existing Notes, and may, in each case, be submitted in integral multiples of €1,000 above €100,000. A separate Tender Instruction must be completed on behalf of each beneficial owner.
The Company is not under any obligation to accept any tender of Existing Notes for purchase pursuant to any Offer. Tenders of Existing Notes for purchase may be rejected in the sole discretion of the Company for any reason and the Company is not under any obligation to Noteholders to furnish any reason or justification for refusing to accept a tender of Existing Notes for purchase. For example, tenders of Existing Notes of any Series for purchase may be rejected if the relevant Offer is terminated, if the relevant Offer does not comply with the relevant requirements of a particular jurisdiction or for any other reason.
