Tennant Company Announces Pricing of Senior Notes Offering

Apr. 13, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today announced the pricing of its previously announced senior notes offering. Tennant priced $300,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of 5.625% Senior Notes due May 1, 2025 (the “Senior Notes”). The Senior Notes offering is expected to close on April 18, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions. The Senior Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by Tennant Coatings, Inc., and Tennant Sales and Service Company, both subsidiaries of Tennant.

Tennant intends to use the net proceeds of the offering of the Senior Notes, together with borrowings under its senior secured credit facilities, to refinance a term loan that was borrowed by Tennant as part of the financing for its acquisition of IP Cleaning S.p.A. (the “Acquisition”) and to pay related fees and expenses. The Acquisition occurred on April 6, 2017.

The Senior Notes are being offered in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S. The Senior Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from registration requirements or a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act or any state securities laws.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, the Senior Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any person to whom, such an offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
