MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE: KSS) announced today the reference yield and total consideration for each series of notes and debentures subject to its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for up to $499,917,000 combined aggregate principal amount (the “Maximum Amount”) of its 7.250% Debentures due 2029, 6.875% Notes due 2037, 6.000% Debentures due 2033, 4.000% Notes due 2021, 4.750% Notes due 2023 and 3.250% Notes due 2023 (collectively, the “Notes”). The increase in the Maximum Amount that may be accepted in the Tender Offer was previously announced by separate release earlier today.
The Tender Offer is being made pursuant to, and subject to the terms and conditions in, an Offer to Purchase, dated April 2, 2018, as amended by the press release of earlier today, which announced the increase in the Maximum Amount ( as amended, the “Offer to Purchase”), which sets forth a description of the terms of the Tender Offer.
The reference yields for the Tender Offer were determined at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, today. The consideration to be paid in the Tender Offer for each series of Notes is based on the applicable reference yield plus a fixed spread, as set forth in the table below. Holders who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline (as defined below) that are accepted for purchase will receive the total consideration, which is equal to the amounts set forth in the table below (the “Total Consideration”). As Kohl’s intends, subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, to accept for purchase the Maximum Amount of Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline, further tenders of Notes prior to the Expiration Time will not be accepted for purchase. Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their purchased Notes from, and including, the last interest payment date for such Notes to, but excluding, the applicable settlement date.
