Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that it has priced a private placement debt offering of $300 million for senior notes (the "Notes"), consisting of $150 million 3.10% notes due 2030 and $150 million 3.20% notes due 2032.
"We are very pleased with the tremendous response we received for this debt offering to bolster our strong and healthy balance sheet and also take advantage of historically low interest rates,” said David C. Adams, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “This financing will provide Curtiss-Wright with greater flexibility to execute on our balanced capital allocation strategy that consists of reinvesting in our business, supplementing our organic growth with strategic acquisitions, and returning capital to shareholders. Together with our strong free cash flow generation, Curtiss-Wright remains well positioned for future growth.”
Curtiss-Wright expects to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include reducing outstanding indebtedness under the Company's revolving credit facilities, possible future acquisitions or funding internal growth initiatives. The offering is expected to close on August 13, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes are being offered to institutional accredited investors in a private placement that qualifies for exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Notes will not be registered for resale under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold absent such registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any state in which any such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state, and is issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
