Item 8.01 Other Events.

On April 27, 2020, Constellation Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) and Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company, as trustee, entered into Supplemental Indenture No. 26 and Supplemental Indenture No. 27 (collectively, the “Supplemental Indentures”), each dated as of April 27, 2020, which supplemented the Indenture, dated as of April 17, 2012 (the “Base Indenture” and together with the Supplemental Indentures and the other prior supplemental indentures thereto, the “Indenture”). Under the Indenture, the Company issued (i) $600.0 million of 2.875% Senior Notes due 2030 for a public offering price of 99.801% of the principal amount of such notes; and (ii) $600.0 million of 3.750% Senior Notes due 2050 for a public offering price of 99.286% of the principal amount of such notes (collectively, the “Notes”).

The Notes were registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-237773) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 21, 2020 (the “Registration Statement”).

The Company will pay interest on the Notes on May 1 and November 1 of each year, commencing on November 1, 2020. The 2.875% Senior Notes due 2030 will mature on May 1, 2030 and the 3.750% Senior Notes due 2050 will mature on May 1, 2050, respectively. We may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at our option, under the terms provided in the Supplemental Indentures. The Indenture contains certain “Events of Default” (as defined in each Supplemental Indenture) customary for indentures of this type. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding may, and the Trustee at the request of the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding shall, declare all unpaid principal of, premium, if any, and accrued interest on all the Notes to be due and payable. Terms of the Indenture and the Notes are more fully described in the section entitled “Description of the Notes” of the Prospectus Supplement dated April 23, 2020 that was filed with the SEC on April 27, 2020, and the term sheets for each series of the Notes dated April 23, 2020 that were filed as a Free Writing Prospectus with the SEC on April 23, 2020.

The foregoing summary of each Supplemental Indenture does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to (i) (A) the Supplemental Indenture No. 26 filed as Exhibit 4.1 hereto (and the form of 2.875% Senior Note due 2030, which is included in Exhibit 4.1 hereto), and (B) the Supplemental Indenture No. 27 filed as Exhibit 4.2 hereto (and the form of 3.750% Senior Note due 2050, which is included in Exhibit 4.2 hereto), each of which is incorporated by reference into this Item 8.01 and into the Registration Statement, and (ii) the Base Indenture, which was filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 23, 2012.
