Item 8.01.    Other Events
On September 19, 2019, Signet Jewelers Limited issued a press release announcing the early tender results of the previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) that Signet UK Finance plc, its wholly-owned subsidiary (the “Company”), commenced to purchase any and all of its outstanding 4.700% Senior Notes due 2024 (CUSIP No. 82671AAA1) (the “Notes”) and solicitation of consents (the “Consents”) from holders of the Notes to certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture governing the Notes (the “Consent Solicitation”).
According to information received from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the Tender Agent and Information Agent for the Tender Offer, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 18, 2019 (the “Early Tender Time”), $251,873,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time were received by the Company, representing approximately 62.97% of the total outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Notes.
Accordingly, as the Company has received Consents in respect of a majority of the Notes, the Company will execute and deliver a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the Notes giving effect to the Proposed Amendments. However, the Proposed Amendments will not become operative until the Notes tendered in the Tender Offer are repurchased, which will take place subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions that are set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
Because the Early Tender Time has expired, Holders whose Notes are validly tendered and not withdrawn after the Early Tender Time will receive the Tender Offer Consideration of $920.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.
The Company expressly reserves the right to terminate the Tender Offer if any condition of the Tender Offer is not satisfied or waived by the Company and otherwise to amend the Tender Offer or Consent Solicitation in any respect. The Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
The Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated September 5, 2019 and a related Consent and Letter of Transmittal, which set forth the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer in full detail.
A copy of the Company’s press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated into this Item 8.01 by reference.
