Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This statement constitutes Amendment Number 5 to the Schedule 13D relating to the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.10 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Navistar International Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”), and hereby amends the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 10, 2017 (the “Original 13D”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed on April 18, 2018 (“Amendment No. 1”), Amendment No. 2 thereto filed on January 30, 2020 (“Amendment No. 2”), and Amendment No. 3 thereto filed on September 10, 2020 (“Amendment No. 3”), and Amendment No. 4 thereto filed on October 14, 2020 (“Amendment No.4” and collectively, with the Original 13D, Amendment No. 1, Amendment No. 2 and Amendment No. 3, the “Schedule 13D”) on behalf of the Reporting Persons to furnish the additional information set forth herein. The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 2701 Navistar Drive, Lisle, Illinois 60532. All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meaning ascribed to such term in the Schedule 13D.

 

The Reporting Persons are filing this Amendment No. 5 in connection with the proposal submitted by TRATON SE (“TRATON”) to the Board of Directors of the Issuer described in Item 4 below.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is hereby supplemented by adding the following paragraphs:

 

On October 16, 2020, the Issuer delivered a letter (the “Navistar Letter”) to TRATON confirming that it would be prepared to move forward with a transaction in which TRATON would acquire the Issuer for $44.50 per share in cash. In the Navistar Letter, the Board of Directors of the Issuer asked TRATON to confirm that a price of $44.50 per share is a basis for finalization of definitive agreements and to publicly announce the extension of the deadline set forth in the October 14 Letter. The Issuer confirmed that an acquisition for US $44.50 per share has the support of both Carl C. Icahn and Mark H. Rachesky in their capacity as shareholders of the Issuer.

 

On October 16, 2020, TRATON delivered a letter (the “October 16 Letter”) to the Board of Directors of the Issuer in which TRATON confirmed that USD $44.50 per share in cash for all of the outstanding shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock is an acceptable basis for finalization of definitive agreements. Further to the original Proposal delivered on January 30, 2020, the October 16 Letter is subject to certain conditions, including completion of TRATON’s necessary preparations for the transaction (which includes certain due diligence matters), and execution and delivery of mutually acceptable definitive documentation. No assurance can be given that a definitive merger agreement with respect to the October 16 Letter will be entered into, the terms thereof, or whether the proposed transaction will eventually be consummated. On October 16, 2020, TRATON made an “ad-hoc announcement” mandatorily required under European capital markets regulations and issued a press release confirming that the deadline set forth in the October 14 Letter is no longer in effect.

 

The October 16 Letter could result in one or more of the actions specified in clauses (a)−(j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, including the acquisition or disposition of additional securities of the Issuer, a merger or other extraordinary transaction involving the Issuer, a change to the present Board of Directors of the Issuer, a change to the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer, the delisting of the Issuer’s securities from the New York Stock Exchange, and a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Exchange Act. One or more of the Reporting Persons may take actions in furtherance of the October 16 Letter or any amendment thereof.

 

The Reporting Persons may at any time, or from time to time, amend, pursue, or choose not to pursue the October 16 Letter; change the terms of the October 16 Letter, including the price, conditions, or scope of the transaction; take any action in or out of the ordinary course of business to facilitate or increase the likelihood of consummation of the transaction described in the October 16 Letter; otherwise seek control or seek to influence the management and policies of the Company; or change their intentions with respect to any such matters.

 

A copy of the October 16 Letter is filed as Exhibit 12 to this Schedule 13D, and is incorporated by reference into this Item 4. A copy of the press release issued by TRATON is filed as Exhibit 13 to this Schedule 13D, and is incorporated by reference into this Item 4. A copy of the ad-hoc-announcement by TRATON is filed as Exhibit 14 to this Schedule 13D, and is incorporated by reference into this Item 4.
