NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN OR INTO, OR TO ANY PERSON LOCATED OR RESIDENT IN, THE UNITED STATES OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE IT IS UNLAWFUL TO RELEASE, PUBLISH OR DISTRIBUTE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

Johannesburg, 14 October 2022

Sappi Papier Holding GmbH (SPH), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sappi Limited (Sappi), announced yesterday the final results of its offer to purchase for cash a portion of its outstanding 3.125% Senior Notes due 2026 (the tender offer). The tender offer was launched by SPH on 4 October 2022 and expired on 12 October 2022.

Given the strong uptake from bondholders, Sappi decided to accept for purchase all the 2026 bonds tendered in the tender offer. As a result, SPH repurchased €209.6 million of the aggregate principal amount of the 2026 bonds in the tender offer, at a purchase price of 92.41% (plus accrued and unpaid interest), yielding a capital gain of €15.9 million. The settlement date for payment is expected to be on 17 October 2022.

Commenting on the successful conclusion of the process, Sappi CEO Steve Binnie said: "I am very pleased with the result of this bond repurchase. The transaction fits well with our overall strategy to use our free cash efficiently and reduce gross debt, further strengthening our financial position."
