LONDON & PARIS & HOUSTON--()--Regulatory News:

TechnipFMC plc (Paris:FTI) (NYSE:FTI) (ISIN:GB00BDSFG982) (“TechnipFMC”) and FMC Technologies, Inc. (“FMCTI”) today announced the final results of the previously announced exchange offers (the “Exchange Offers”) for any and all of the $800 million in aggregate principal amount of outstanding senior notes issued by FMCTI (the “Existing FMCTI Notes”) for (1) new senior notes issued by TechnipFMC (the “New TechnipFMC Notes”) and (2) cash, and the related consent solicitations (the “Consent Solicitations”) to adopt certain amendments to the indentures governing the Existing FMCTI Notes.

The Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 27, 2017 (the “Expiration Date”). As of the Expiration Date, the following principal amounts of each series of Existing FMCTI Notes were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn (and consents thereby validly given and not validly revoked):

       
Aggregate
Principal
CUSIP Amount Existing FMCTI Notes Tendered at
Title of Series Number Maturity Date Outstanding Expiration Date
        Principal Amount   Percentage
2.00% Senior 30249U October 1,

Notes due 2022 AB7 2022 $500,000,000 $459,862,000 91.97%
 

The Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations were made pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated February 28, 2017 (the “Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement”).

Upon settlement of the Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations, which is currently expected to occur on Wednesday, March 29, 2017, TechnipFMC will (i) issue to the holders of the Existing FMCTI Notes who tendered in advance of the Early Tender Date whose securities have been accepted for exchange New TechnipFMC Notes in an equal principal amount to the principal amount of the Existing FMCTI Notes that have been accepted for exchange, (ii) issue to the holders of the Existing FMCTI Notes who tendered after the Early Tender Date but before the Expiration Date whose securities have been accepted for exchange $970 principal amount of New TechnipFMC Notes for each $1,000 principal amount of Existing FMCTI Notes that have been accepted for exchange and (iii) pay to the holders of the Existing FMCTI Notes whose securities have been accepted for exchange a total of $676,870 in cash as part of the exchange consideration. Capitalized terms used in this paragraph but not defined in this press release have the meaning given to them in the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement.

In addition, as previously disclosed, FMCTI received consents in the Consent Solicitations sufficient to approve amendments to the indenture governing the Existing FMCTI Notes. As a result, FMCTI and the trustee for the Existing FMCTI Notes will promptly enter into a supplemental indenture implementing those amendments to the indenture governing the Existing FMCTI Notes.

The New TechnipFMC Notes will only be issued to eligible holders of Existing FMCTI Notes who have completed and returned an eligibility form confirming that they are either a “qualified institutional buyer” under Rule 144A or not a “U.S. person” and outside the United States under Regulation S for purposes of applicable securities laws.

TechnipFMC will file a Current Report on Form 8-K after the settlement of the Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations attaching, among other things, the indenture governing the New TechnipFMC Notes. A copy of the Form 8-K will be available on the SEC website (www.sec.gov) and on the TechnipFMC website (www.technipfmc.com).

The New TechnipFMC Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws. Therefore, the New TechnipFMC Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.
