Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

 

On August 16, 2021, The Dow Chemical Company (the “Company”), issued a press release announcing that it has commenced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) to purchase certain of its debt securities and certain debt securities of Rohm and Haas Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (collectively, the “Notes”), in an aggregate purchase price (excluding Accrued Interest (as defined below)) of up to $1.48 billion (the “Maximum Tender Offer Amount”) upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase (the “Offer to Purchase”). The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on September 13, 2021 (the “Expiration Time”), unless extended or earlier terminated with respect to any Tender Offer.

 

The consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be determined in the manner described in the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and the Offer to Purchase by reference to a specified fixed spread for the Notes plus the yield based on the bid-side price of a specified U.S. Treasury Reference Security at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on August 30, 2021, unless otherwise extended by us as described in the Offer to Purchase.

 

The settlement date for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 27, 2021, (the “Early Tender Deadline”) and accepted for purchase is expected to be August 31, 2021, the second business day after the Early Tender Deadline (the “Early Settlement Date”). The settlement date for the Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase is expected to be September 15, 2021, the second business day after the Expiration Time (the “Final Settlement Date,” and along with the Early Settlement Date, each a “Settlement Date”), if the Maximum Tender Offer Amount of applicable Notes is not purchased on such Early Settlement Date.

Holders whose Notes are validly tendered and accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the date of the applicable Settlement Date less any applicable withholding taxes (“Accrued Interest”). A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

 

The information included in this Current Report on Form 8-K under this Item 7.01 (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing made by the Company under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
