COTY INC. (NYSE:COTY) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

6.500% Senior Notes due 2026, 4.000% Senior Notes due 2023 and 4.750% Senior Notes due 2026

On April 5, 2018, Coty Inc. (the “Company” or “Coty”) completed its previously announced offering of three series of U.S. dollar denominated and euro denominated senior unsecured notes in an aggregate principal amount of $550 million and €800 million, in a private offering, consisting of $550 million of 6.500% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Dollar Notes”), €550 million of 4.000% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Euro Notes”) and €250 million of 4.750% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Euro Notes” and, together with the 2023 Euro Notes, the “Euro Notes” and, together with the 2026 Dollar Notes, the “Notes”).

The Notes are the senior unsecured obligations of the Company. Each series of Notes is guaranteed on an unsecured senior basis by each of the Company’s subsidiaries that is a guarantor under its Senior Secured Facilities (defined below) (the “Guarantors”). Each series of Notes will be effectively junior to to all of the Company’s existing and future senior secured indebtedness (including the Senior Secured Facilities) to the extent of the value of the assets securing such secured indebtedness.

The Notes and related guarantees were offered and sold in a private offering that was exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes and related guarantees were offered within the United States only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States only to non-U.S. investors in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction. Unless so registered, the Notes and related guarantees may not be offered or sold in the United States except to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

The Indenture

The Notes were issued to an indenture, dated as of April 5, 2018 (the “Indenture”), among the Company, the Guarantors, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee (the “Trustee”), Registrar and U.S. Paying Agent with respect to the 2026 Dollar Notes, and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as London Paying Agent (the “London Paying Agent”) with respect to the Euro Notes. The 2026 Dollar Notes will accrue interest at the rate of 6.500% per year and will mature on April 15, 2026. The 2023 Euro Notes will accrue interest at the rate of 4.000% per year and will mature on April 15, 2023. The 2026 Euro Notes will accrue interest at the rate of 4.750% per year and will mature on April 15, 2026. Interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on each April 15 and October 15. Interest on the Notes will accrue from April 5, 2018.

The 2026 Dollar Notes will be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to April 15, 2021, the 2023 Euro Notes will be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to April 15, 2020, and the 2026 Euro Notes will be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to April 15, 2021, in each case at 50% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus a “make-whole” premium and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.

The redemption price for the 2026 Dollar Notes that are redeemed on or after April 15, 2021, for the 2023 Euro Notes that are redeemed on or after April 15, 2020 and the 2026 Euro Notes that are redeemed on or after April 15, 2021 will be equal to the redemption prices set forth in the Indenture, together with any accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date.

In addition, the Company may redeem up to 35% of the 2026 Dollar Notes using the proceeds of certain equity offerings completed before April 15, 2021, up to 35% of the 2023 Euro Notes using the proceeds of certain equity offerings completed before April 15, 2020 and up to 35% of the 2026 Euro Notes using the proceeds of certain equity offerings completed before April 15, 2021.

If, as a result of any change in, or amendment to, the tax laws of the United States or the official interpretation thereof, the Company becomes or, based upon a written opinion of independent tax counsel of nationally recognized standing selected by the Company, will become obligated to pay additional amounts with respect to either series of Euro Notes, the Company may at any time at its option redeem, in whole, but not in part, such series of Euro Notes at 50% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of redemption.

Upon the occurrence of certain change of control triggering events with respect to a series of Notes, the Company will be required to offer to repurchase such Notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the purchase date applicable to such Notes.

The Indenture contains covenants that limit the ability of the Company and any of its subsidiaries to, among other things:

· enter into sale or leaseback transactions; and
· consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the Company’s or any Guarantor’s assets.

The Indenture also provides for customary events of default.
