DALLAS, Sept. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Builders FirstSource, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq:BLDR), a leading supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction and home repair and remodeling in the United States, today announced the commencement of a cash tender offer to purchase (the “Tender Offer”) up to $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 10.75% Senior Notes due 2023 (CUSIP Nos. 12008R AH0 (144A) and U08985 AD2 (Reg S)) (the “Notes”) at a purchase price per $1,000 principal amount determined in accordance with a modified Dutch auction procedure on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated September 14, 2016 (the “Offer to Purchase”) and the related Letter of Instruction.
Acceptable bid prices fall within a purchase price range between $1,135 to $1,175, in each case inclusive, per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered. The Company will determine a purchase price (the “Clearing Price”) for Notes tendered within the purchase price range that will allow the Issuer to purchase $50,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes (or such lesser amount of Notes as are validly tendered) within the purchase price range. In the event that the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered at or below the Clearing Price exceeds $50,000,000, then, in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Tender Offer, the Company will prorate Notes validly tendered at the Clearing Price.
The Company will pay accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from September 1, 2016, the last interest payment date for the Notes, to but excluding the date on which the Notes are purchased. The Company expects to fund the purchase of the Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer, including such accrued and unpaid interest and any related fees and expenses, with borrowings under its existing ABL credit facility and cash on hand.
The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on October 12, 2016, unless such time and date is extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such date and time, the “Expiration Time”). The Tender Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase. Subject to applicable law, the Company may terminate the Tender Offer at any time prior to the applicable Expiration Time in its sole discretion.
