Fiserv announces expiration and results of tender offer for 4.625% senior notes due 2020
BROOKFIELD, WI (September 27, 2018) — Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV) (the “Issuer”), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, announced today the expiration and results of the previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the “Offer”) any and all of its outstanding 4.625% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”), which expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 26, 2018 (the “Expiration Time”).
As of the Expiration Time, $245,610,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes, or 54.58% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding, had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. This excludes $644,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes that remain subject to guaranteed delivery procedures. The complete terms and conditions of the Offer were set forth in an Offer to Purchase, dated September 20, 2018, and the related Letter of Transmittal (the “Offer Documents”).
The Issuer expects to accept for payment all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Time and, in accordance with the terms of the Offer to Purchase, will pay all holders of such Notes $1,028.92 per $1,000 principal amount for all Notes accepted in the Offer, including those properly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Time and those tendered by the guaranteed delivery procedures described within the Offer to Purchase, three business days after the Expiration Time, or October 1, 2018 (the “Payment Date”). Also, on the Payment Date, the Issuer will pay accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date of the Notes to, but not including, the Payment Date. For avoidance of doubt, interest on the Notes will cease to accrue on the Payment Date for all Notes accepted in the Offer. All Notes purchased on the Payment Date will subsequently be retired. The Issuer will fund the payment for tendered and accepted notes with the net proceeds from its previously announced issuance and sale of $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of its 3.800% Senior Notes due 2023 and $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of its 4.200% Senior Notes due 2028. Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acted as the exclusive dealer manager (the “Dealer Manager”) for the Offer. Global Bondholder Services Corporation served as the information agent and tender agent for the Offer.
