Item 8.01 Other Events.

On December 9, 2019, Korn Ferry (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the launch of an offering of $400.0 million of senior unsecured notes due 2027 (the “Notes”) through a private placement to certain eligible purchasers. The Company also announced it intends to use the proceeds from the Notes to repay all amounts outstanding under its existing five-year senior secured revolving credit facility and to pay expenses and fees in connection therewith and for general corporate purposes. In addition, the Company announced that it intends to enter into a new $650 million five-year senior secured revolving credit facility in connection with the closing of the offering. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

The press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. The Notes and the guarantees thereof have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes are expected to be offered and sold only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to non-U.S. persons outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The press release is being issued in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
