Item 8.01. Other Events.

On September 27, 2022, Avient Corporation (the “Company”) elected to exercise its optional redemption rights to redeem the entire outstanding $600,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 5.25% Senior Notes due March 15, 2023 (the “Notes”), and instructed Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as successor to Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee under the indenture governing the Notes, to issue on such date a Conditional Notice of Full Redemption to registered holders of the Notes. The date fixed for the redemption of the Notes is November 2, 2022 (the “Redemption Date”). The Notes will be redeemed at a redemption price equal to the sum of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus (ii) the Applicable Premium (as defined in the indenture governing the Notes) as of the Redemption Date, plus (iii) accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the Redemption Date (the “Redemption Price”). The Company’s obligation to redeem the Notes and pay the Redemption Price on the Redemption Date is conditioned on the consummation by the Company on or prior to the Redemption Date of its pending disposition of its Distribution business. The foregoing does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to any of the Notes.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
