MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Target Corporation (« Target ») (NYSE:TGT) today announced that, in connection with its previously-announced cash tender offers (collectively, the « Offers ») for up to $1.75 billion aggregate purchase price (excluding accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the settlement date and excluding fees and expenses related to the Offers) of the debt securities identified in the table below (collectively, the « Securities » and each referred to as a « series » of Securities) from each registered holder of Securities (individually, a « Holder, » and collectively, the « Holders »), approximately $1.768 billion in combined aggregate principal amount of Securities was validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020 (the « Early Tender Deadline »), in the aggregate amounts as shown in the table below. Target also today announced it has amended the Offers to increase the previously announced Maximum Tender Amount from $1.75 billion to an amount that is sufficient to allow Target to accept for purchase all Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Deadline (excluding accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the settlement date and excluding fees and expenses related to the Offers) (the « Amended Maximum Tender Amount »). Subject to the Amended Maximum Tender Amount, the Offers and order of priority (the « Acceptance Priority Levels ») set forth in the table below are as described in in the Offer to Purchase, dated September 23, 2020, as amended or supplemented (the « Offer to Purchase »). The determination of the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) will occur at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on October 7, 2020. The early settlement date is expected to occur on October 8, 2020.
As described in the Offer to Purchase, Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase in priority to other Securities validly tendered following the Early Tender Deadline even if such Securities validly tendered following the Early Tender Deadline have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Securities validly tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Although the Offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 21, 2020, because the Amended Maximum Tender Amount will equal the aggregate purchase price required to accept all Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Deadline, Target does not expect to accept for purchase any tenders of Securities after the Early Tender Deadline. Any Securities tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will be promptly credited to the account of the Holder of such Securities maintained at The Depository Trust Company and otherwise returned in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.
The terms and conditions of the Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase and remain unchanged except as amended hereby.
Holders of Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), which includes an early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Securities validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by such Holders and accepted for purchase by Target. All payments for Securities purchased in connection with the Early Tender Deadline will also include accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of Securities purchased from the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the early settlement date.
In accordance with the terms of the Offers, the withdrawal deadline was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020. As a result, tendered Securities may not be withdrawn, except in certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law (as determined by Target).
Target reserves the absolute right, subject to applicable law, to: (i) waive any and all conditions to the Offers; (ii) extend or terminate the Offers; (iii) increase or decrease the Maximum Tender Amount without extending the Early Tender Deadline or the Withdrawal Deadline; or (iv) otherwise amend the Offers in any respect.
