Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 2 does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D. The address of the principal executive office of the Issuer is 1100 Old Highway Eight NW, New Brighton, MN 55112.

Item 2. Identity and Background

Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by incorporating herein by reference the information set forth on the updated Schedule I attached hereto.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended to include the following at the end thereof:

Conversion and Repurchase Agreement

On February 28, 2024, the Company entered into a Conversion and Repurchase Agreement (the “Conversion and Repurchase Agreement”) with Juno Lower Holdings, FD Juno Holdings (together, the “Blackstone Parties”), Viking Global Equities Master Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted company (“VGEM”), and Viking Global Equities II LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“VGE II” and, collectively with VGEM, the “Viking Parties” and the Viking Parties collectively with the Blackstone Parties, the “Series B Holders” and each, a “Series B Holder”). Pursuant to the Conversion and Repurchase Agreement, (i) each of the Series B Holders exercised its respective right to effect an Optional Conversion (as defined in the Certificate of Designation (as defined below)) pursuant to the Certificate of Designation (the “Certificate of Designation”) of the Company’s 5.5% Series B Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series B Preferred Shares”), with respect to all of such Series B Holder’s Series B Preferred Shares, at the conversion price of $24.60 per share of Common Stock, (ii) the Company issued to the Series B Holders an aggregate of 32,803,519 shares of Common Stock upon conversion (inclusive of 283,196 shares attributable to accrued and unpaid dividends thereon), of which 24,299,619 and 303,022 shares of Common Stock were issued to Juno Lower Holdings and FD Juno Holdings, respectively, and (iii) the Company immediately thereafter repurchased an aggregate of 16,260,160 shares of Common Stock from the Series B Holders, of which 12,044,918 and 150,203 shares of Common Stock were repurchased from Juno Lower Holdings and FD Juno Holdings, respectively, for a price of $36.90 per share and an aggregate purchase price of approximately $600 million (the “Share Repurchase”), with the Blackstone Parties receiving approximately $450 million in value and the Viking Parties receiving approximately $75 million in value. Juno Lower Holdings and FD Juno Holdings received an aggregate of 12,254,701 and 152,819 shares of Common Stock, respectively, in each case, after giving effect to the Optional Conversion and the Share Repurchase. Following the conversion there are no Series B Preferred Shares issued or outstanding. Each Series B Holder also agreed, severally and not jointly, with the Company to a 90-day lock-up on all shares of Common Stock owned by them other than shares repurchased by the Company in the Share Repurchase or to be sold in the Secondary Offering (as defined below) and other customary exceptions.

The Company funded the Share Repurchase through a combination of (i) an incremental term loan facility (the “Incremental Term Loan”) under the Company’s existing Credit Agreement (as defined below) in the aggregate principal amount of $300 million that was issued at par and shall be fungible with the existing 2021 Incremental Term Loans (as defined below) to the Blackstone Parties, in the amount of $225 million, and to the Viking Parties, in the amount of $75 million, (ii) a drawdown under the Company’s existing revolving credit facility and (iii) cash on hand. On February 28, 2024, the Blackstone Parties sold all of the $225 million Incremental Term Loan received in connection with the Share Repurchase to a third party lender.


In connection with the entry into the Conversion and Repurchase Agreement, on February 28, 2024, David S. Blitzer, who was previously nominated by the Blackstone Parties as a member of the Company’s board of directors pursuant to the Blackstone Parties’ nomination right under the securities purchase agreement for the Series B Preferred Shares, resigned as a member of the Company’s board of directors effective immediately.

Incremental Term Loan Financing

On February 28, 2024, the Company and its wholly owned borrower subsidiary, APi Group DE, Inc., (“APi Borrower”) entered into Amendment No. 5 to Credit Agreement (“Amendment No. 5”) by and among APi Borrower, the Company, as a guarantor, the Company subsidiary guarantors named therein, Citibank, N.A., as collateral agent and as administrative agent, the Blackstone Parties and the Viking Parties, as lenders, which amends the Credit Agreement, dated as of October 1, 2019, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Credit Agreement, dated as of October 22, 2020, Amendment No. 2 to Credit Agreement, dated December 16, 2021, Amendment No. 3 to Credit Agreement, dated May 19, 2023, and Amendment No. 4 to Credit Agreement, dated October 11, 2023, by and among APi Borrower, the Company, the Company’s subsidiary guarantors from time to time party thereto, the lenders and letter of credit issuers from time to time party thereto, and Citibank, N.A. as administrative agent and collateral agent (as amended, supplemented or modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”). Pursuant to Amendment No. 5, the 2021 Incremental Term Loans incurred by the APi Borrower under Amendment No. 4 to the Credit Agreement (the “2021 Incremental Term Loans”) were upsized by an aggregate principal amount equal to $300 million as part of the Incremental Term Loan and issued at par and shall be fungible with the existing 2021 Incremental Term Loans, which loan proceeds were directed exclusively to the Blackstone Parties and the Viking Parties as consideration for a portion of the purchase price for the Share Repurchase.

Secondary Offering

Additionally, on February 29, 2024, the Blackstone Parties entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”), by and among the Company, the Blackstone Parties, the Viking Parties and UBS Securities LLC and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as representatives (the “Representatives”) of the several underwriters, pursuant to which Juno Lower Holdings and FD Juno Holdings agreed to sell to the underwriters an aggregate of 7,829,198 and 97,632 shares of Common Stock (and up to 1,174,379 and 14,645 additional shares pursuant to the underwriters’ option, which option was exercised in full on March 1, 2024), respectively, at a price of $33.05125 per share, for an aggregate price of approximately $262 million (or approximately $301 million assuming the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option). Any shares to be sold under the Underwriting Agreement continue to be beneficially owned until closing of such transaction and are included in ownership in this statement accordingly. The Blackstone Parties also agreed to a customary 90-day lock-up with the Representatives with respect to the Company’s securities, subject to customary exceptions.

The foregoing summary of the Conversion and Repurchase Agreement, Amendment No. 5 and the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, which are included as exhibits hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Items 5(a) and (b) of the Schedule 13D are hereby amended and restated as follows:

(a) and (b) Calculations of the percentage of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned assumes that there were 261,332,611 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of February 28, 2024 (which gives effect to the issuance of 32,803,519 shares of Common Stock in connection with the Optional Conversion and 16,260,160 shares of Common Stock repurchased by the Issuer in connection with the Share Repurchase), as reported in the Issuer’s preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b)(7) on February 28, 2024.

As of the date hereof, (x) Juno Lower Holdings directly holds 12,504,371 shares of Common Stock, and (y) FD Juno Holdings directly holds 155,932 shares of Common Stock.

Item 5(c) of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended as follows:

(c) Juno Lower Holdings and FD Juno Holdings received 249,670 and 3,113 shares of Common Stock, respectively, on January 2, 2024, in each case as dividends paid in kind on the Series B Preferred Stock held by such entities on the applicable dividend payment date. Except as otherwise set forth in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D, none of the Reporting Persons or, to the best knowledge of the Reporting Persons, any other person named in Schedule I, has effected any transaction in Common Stock in the past 60 days.

Item 5(e) of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended as follows:

(e) As a result of the transactions reported herein, on February 28, 2024, the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owners of more than five percent of the Issuer’s Common Stock. The filing of this Amendment No. 2 represents the final amendment to the Schedule 13D and constitutes an exit filing for the Reporting Persons.
