Item 8.01

Other Events.

On November 23, 2020, Conagra Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) elected to exercise its optional redemption rights to redeem $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 3.200% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”), and The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee under the indenture governing the Notes, issued a notice of partial redemption to registered holders of the Notes. The date fixed for the redemption of the Notes is December 23, 2020 (the “Redemption Date”). The Notes will be redeemed at a redemption price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed and (ii) the sum, as determined by an independent investment banker, of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes to be redeemed (exclusive of interest accrued to the redemption date) discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate (as defined in the Notes) plus 0.250% plus accrued interest on the Notes to be redeemed from July 25, 2020 to, but not including, the redemption date. The foregoing does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to any of the Notes.
