Kraft Heinz Commences Cash Tender Offer for Up To $1.0 Billion Aggregate Purchase Price of Certain of its Outstanding Notes


PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO, Feb. 22 -- The Kraft Heinz Company issued the following news release:

The Kraft Heinz Company (“Kraft Heinz”) (Nasdaq: KHC) announced today that its 100% owned subsidiary Kraft Heinz Foods Company (the “Issuer”) has commenced an offer to purchase for cash (the “Tender Offer”) up to the maximum combined aggregate purchase price of $1.0 billion, including principal and premium but excluding accrued and unpaid interest (the “Maximum Tender Amount”), of its outstanding 3.500% Senior Notes due June 2022 (the “June 2022 Notes”), 4.000% Senior Notes due June 2023 (the “June 2023 Notes”), 3.950% Senior Notes due July 2025 (the “July 2025 Notes”), and 3.000% Senior Notes due June 2026 (the “June 2026 Notes,” and together with the June 2022 Notes, the June 2023 Notes, and the July 2025 Notes, the “Notes,” and each, a “Series” of Notes). Subject to the Maximum Tender Amount, the amount of a Series of Notes that is purchased in the Tender Offer will be based on the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth below. The Tender Offer is being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated February 22, 2021 (the “Offer to Purchase”). Capitalized terms used in this release but not otherwise defined have the meaning given in the Offer to Purchase.

Consummation of the Tender Offer and payment for the Notes accepted for purchase are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. Subject to applicable law, the Issuer has reserved the absolute right, in its sole discretion, to at any time (i) waive any and all conditions to the Tender Offer, (ii) extend, terminate, or withdraw the Tender Offer, (iii) increase or waive the Maximum Tender Amount, with or without extending the Withdrawal Date (as defined below), or (iv) otherwise amend the Tender Offer in any respect.

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 19, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated as described in the Offer to Purchase (such time and date, as they may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). Notes tendered at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 5, 2021 (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Withdrawal Date”) may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to the Withdrawal Date, but not thereafter, except in certain limited circumstances where the Issuer determines that additional withdrawal rights are required by law. Holders of the Notes (“Holders”) are urged to read the Offer to Purchase carefully before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer.

Certain information regarding the Notes and the Tender Offer is set forth in the table below.

Disclaimer: The table has been omitted (The document can be viewed at http://ir.kraftheinzcompany.com/news-releases/news-release-details/kraft-heinz-commences-cash-tender-offer-10-billion-aggregate).

Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 5, 2021, unless extended with respect to any Series of Notes (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Early Tender Time”) or earlier terminated by the Issuer, will be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes the applicable Early Tender Premium as set forth in the table above. The applicable Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase will be determined as set forth in the table above. Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, which is equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Premium.

For Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time, and not subsequently validly withdrawn, and accepted for purchase, the Issuer has the option for settlement to occur on the Early Settlement Date, which is expected to be March 9, 2021, the second business day following the Early Tender Time. In the event we choose to have an Early Settlement Date, settlement for Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time, but at or prior to the Expiration Time, is expected to occur on March 23, 2021, the second business day following the Expiration Time, unless extended.

In addition to the Total Consideration or the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, all Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, will, on the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable, also receive accrued and unpaid interest in respect of such Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date.

Subject to the Maximum Tender Amount, the application of the Acceptance Priority Levels, and the other terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, the Issuer intends to accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time. However, if the Tender Offer is fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Time, Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase. Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase in priority to the Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time even if such Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time. As a result, each Holder who validly tenders Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer may have a portion of its Notes returned to it, and the amount of Notes returned will depend on the level of participation of Holders in the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer may be subject to proration if the aggregate purchase price (including principal and premium but excluding accrued and unpaid interest) of the Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn is greater than the Maximum Tender Amount.

Kraft Heinz has engaged Barclays, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank Securities, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, HSBC, Mizuho Securities, and Morgan Stanley to act as dealer managers (collectively, the “Dealer Managers”) in connection with the Tender Offer and has appointed Global Bondholder Services Corporation to serve as the tender agent and information agent for the Tender Offer. Copies of the Offer to Purchase are available at https://www.gbsc-usa.com/kraftheinzcompany/ or by contacting Global Bondholder Services Corporation via telephone at +1 (866) 794-2200 (toll free) or +1 212-430-3774 (for banks and brokers). Questions regarding the terms of the Tender Offer should be directed to Barclays at +1 (800) 438-3242 (toll free) or +1 (212) 528-7581 (collect).

None of the Issuer, Kraft Heinz, their boards of directors or boards of managers, as applicable, the Dealer Managers, Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the trustee for the Notes, or any of their respective affiliates, is making any recommendation as to whether Holders should tender any Notes in response to the Tender Offer. Holders must make their own decision as to whether to tender any of their Notes and, if so, the principal amounts of Notes to tender.
