Howmet Aerospace Announces Note Tender Early Results

September 1, 2021

Howmet Aerospace Inc. (“Howmet Aerospace” or the “Company”) (NYSE:HWM) announced today the early tender results for the Company’s previously announced tender offer (the “tender offer, or the “offer”) in respect of its outstanding 6.875% Notes due 2025 (the “Existing 2025 Notes”).

According to information received from Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the tender and information agent for the tender offer, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 31, 2021 (which was the “early tender deadline”), the Company had received valid tenders from holders of the Existing 2025 Notes as outlined in the table below. Because the aggregate principal amount of Existing 2025 Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the early tender deadline exceeds the maximum aggregate principal amount of Existing 2025 Notes to be accepted in the tender offer, Howmet Aerospace expects to accept such Existing 2025 Notes for purchase on a pro rata basis, so as to not exceed the tender cap (with adjustments to avoid the purchase of Existing 2025 Notes in a principal amount other than in integral multiples of $1,000 or the return to any holders of an amount less than the minimum denomination).

Series of









Tender Cap(1)










Notes due


443201AA6 /








Represents maximum aggregate principal amount of Existing 2025 Notes to be accepted for purchase by Howmet Aerospace, exclusive of accrued and unpaid interest. Due to proration mechanics, this will result in acceptance by Howmet Aerospace of $599,984,000 of Existing 2025 Notes. Such amount shall constitute the full Tender Cap under the tender offer (and the tender offer is hereby amended as necessary to so provide).


Per $1,000 principal amount of Existing 2025 Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase by Howmet Aerospace. Excludes accrued and unpaid interest, which will be paid on Existing 2025 Notes accepted for purchase by Howmet Aerospace as described below.


Includes the $50.00 early tender premium for Existing 2025 Notes validly tendered at or prior to the early tender deadline (and not validly withdraw) and accepted for purchase by Howmet Aerospace.

Howmet Aerospace expects the early settlement date for the Existing 2025 Notes that are accepted for purchase (after accounting for proration) to occur on September 2, 2021. The deadline for holders to validly withdraw tenders of Existing 2025 Notes has passed. Accordingly, Existing 2025 Notes that have been validly tendered cannot be withdrawn, except as provided for in the Offer to Purchase or required by applicable law.

Howmet Aerospace intends to fund the tender offer with net proceeds from its previously announced note offering, which is scheduled to close today, and cash on hand. That closing will fulfill the financing condition to the tender offer.

Holders of Existing 2025 Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Existing 2025 Notes at or prior to the early tender deadline will receive the total consideration, which includes the early tender premium for the Existing 2025 Notes of $50.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Existing 2025 Notes tendered, for the Existing 2025 Notes that are accepted for purchase (after accounting for proration). Although the tender offer will expire at midnight (end of day), New York City time, on September 15, 2021, because the tender offer was fully subscribed at the early tender deadline, Howmet Aerospace does not expect to accept for purchase any Existing 2025 Notes tendered after the early tender deadline. Accrued and unpaid interest will be paid on all Existing 2025 Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the settlement date.

Morgan Securities LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and BMO Capital Markets Corp. to act as the lead dealer managers and Global Bondholder Services Corporation to act as the tender and information agent for the tender offer.
