10/21/2020 | 06:39pm EST

MOORESVILLE, N.C., Oct. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowe's Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW) (the "Company") today announced the pricing terms of its previously announced cash tender offers (the "Tender Offers") of its outstanding 7.110% Notes due 2037, 6.650% Notes due 2037, 5.800% Notes due 2036, 5.800% Notes due 2040, 5.125% Notes due 2050, 5.000% Notes due 2043, 5.125% Notes due 2041, 4.550% Notes due 2049, 5.000% Notes due 2040, 4.375% Notes due 2045, 4.650% Notes due 2042, 4.250% Notes due 2044, 4.050% Notes due 2047, 5.500% Notes due 2035, 7.200% Notes due 2027, 6.875% Notes due 2028, 6.500% Notes due 2029, and 4.500% Notes due 2030 (collectively, the "Notes") in the priorities set forth in the table below, subject to an aggregate tender cap (the "Aggregate Tender Cap") of up to an aggregate principal amount of all series of Notes that does not exceed $3,500,000,000 in aggregate cash consideration excluding accrued interest.  The amount of each series of Notes purchased is limited to the applicable Tender SubCap (each, a "Tender SubCap") set forth in the table below, if any.  The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in the Company's Offer to Purchase, dated October 7, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase"), and the related Letter of Transmittal.  As previously announced, the purpose of the Tender Offers is to reduce interest expense and manage the maturity profile of the Company's outstanding debt.  Notes that are accepted in the Tender Offers will be retired. Each Tender Offer is a separate tender offer. Each Tender Offer may be individually amended, extended or terminated by us. The Company reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase, decrease or eliminate one or more of the Tender SubCaps and to increase or decrease the Aggregate Tender Cap, in each case subject to compliance with applicable law.

The Total Consideration for each series of Notes is based on the applicable reference yield plus a fixed spread over the yield based on the bid side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table below, and is payable to holders of the Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 21, 2020 (the "Early Tender Deadline") and whose Notes are accepted for purchase by the Company. The Reference Yields listed in the table were determined at 3:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 21, 2020 by the lead dealer managers.  The Total Consideration for each series of Notes includes an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by such holders and accepted for purchase by the Company. In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will receive accrued and unpaid interest rounded to the nearest cent on each $1,000 principal amount of Notes from the last interest payment date for the applicable series of Notes up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date, which is expected to occur on October 23, 2020 with respect to early settlement (such date, the "Early Settlement Date").
