PTC Launches Private Offering of $750 Million of Senior Notes

Sponsored by Businesswire

PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced that it intends to offer $750 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2025 and senior notes due 2028 (together, the “notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The proposed offering is subject to market and other conditions. PTC expects to use $530 million of the net proceeds of the offering of the notes to redeem all $500 million of its outstanding 6.000% Senior Notes due 2024, including the payment of premium and accrued and unpaid interest thereon, on or about May 15, 2020. PTC intends to use the remaining net proceeds to repay $210 million of the outstanding loans under its senior revolving credit facility at the closing of the offering of the notes. Pending the application of the net proceeds of the offering, PTC intends to invest $530 million of the net proceeds temporarily in money market funds, bank deposit accounts, investment grade securities or similar short-term investments.

The notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The notes are being offered only to (i) persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and (ii) certain non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the notes or any other securities, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Nothing contained in this press release constitutes a notice of redemption of the 6.000% Senior Notes due 2024.
