WILMERDING, Pa., Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabtec Corporation (NYSE: WAB) (“Wabtec”) today announced that it has priced a public offering of (i) $500 million of Floating Rate Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Floating Rate Notes”), (ii) $750 million of 4.150% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”) and (iii) $1.25 billion of 4.700% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes,” and, together with the Floating Rate Notes and the 2024 Notes, the “Notes”). The Notes will be guaranteed by each of Wabtec’s current and future subsidiaries that guarantee its indebtedness under its credit agreement or any other debt of Wabtec or any other guarantor.

The Floating Rate Notes will pay interest quarterly in arrears and the 2024 Notes and the 2028 Notes will pay interest semi-annually in arrears. The Floating Rate Notes will mature on September 15, 2021, the 2024 Notes will mature on March 15, 2024 and the 2028 Notes will mature on September 15, 2028, in each case, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased.

Wabtec intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with borrowings under its  credit agreement and cash on hand, to pay the cash purchase price for the direct sale by General Electric (“GE”) of certain assets of GE’s transportation business (“GE Transportation”) in connection with the previously announced combination of Wabtec with GE Transportation (the “GET Transactions”), and for the payment of fees and expenses related to the GET Transactions.

The sale of the Notes, which is expected, subject to customary closing conditions, to close on September 14, 2018, is not conditioned upon the completion of the GET Transactions. If the closing of the GET Transactions has not occurred by 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on August 20, 2019 or the agreements governing the GET Transactions are terminated at any time prior to such date, the Notes will be subject to a special mandatory redemption. 

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and PNC Capital Markets LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

The offering is being made under an automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on August 3, 2017. The offering may be made only by means of a prospectus and related prospectus supplement. Before you invest, you should read the registration statement, including the prospectus, and prospectus supplement, and other documents Wabtec has filed with the SEC for more complete information about Wabtec and this offering.
