TYSONS, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DXC Technology Company (NYSE: DXC) (“DXC”) today announced preliminary results in connection with its previously announced (i) offer to exchange all validly tendered and accepted notes of the following series issued by Enterprise Services LLC (“EDS”) for new notes (“New Notes”) to be issued by DXC (the “Exchange Offer”); and (ii) the related consent solicitation to certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Old Notes (as defined below) (the “Consent Solicitation”).
|Notes to be exchanged (the “Old Notes”)||
CUSIP No. for the Old Notes
Aggregate principal amount of Old Notes tendered and consenting as of the Early Consent Date
Percentage of total outstanding principal amount of Old Notes tendered and consenting as of the Early Consent Date
|7.45% Senior Notes due 2029||285659AF5||$232,149,000||77.38%|
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 22, 2018 (the “Early Consent Date”), according to Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the information and exchange agent, approximately $232,149,000, representing a majority of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes, had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. Accordingly, EDS has received consents sufficient to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Old Notes to, among other things, eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants in the indenture governing the Old Notes, eliminate certain events of default, amend the indenture governing the Old Notes to provide for the termination and replacement of guarantees and make certain conforming changes to the indenture governing the Old Notes to reflect the proposed amendments.
On January 22, 2018, EDS and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”), executed a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the Old Notes incorporating the proposed amendments (the “Supplemental Indenture”). The Supplemental Indenture became effective upon execution and delivery by EDS and the Trustee, however the proposed amendments will not become operative until the Settlement Date.
DXC has filed a registration statement on Form S-4 relating to the Exchange Offer (as amended, the “Registration Statement”). Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 8, 2018, and has been declared effective. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in DXC’s prospectus, dated as of January 8, 2018 (the “Prospectus”), which forms a part of the Registration Statement. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation commenced on January 8, 2018 and expire immediately following 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 5, 2018, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Date”). As of the Early Consent Date, holders may no longer withdraw tendered Old Notes, except as required by law. Further, since the Supplemental Indenture has been entered into, holders may no longer revoke the related consents, except as required by law.
The New Notes are expected to be issued and the early consent payment (as defined in the Prospectus) is expected to be paid to eligible holders on or about the second business day following the Expiration Date (the “Settlement Date”), which Settlement Date is currently anticipated to be February 7, 2018. The consummation of the Exchange Offer and the Consent Solicitation are subject to, and conditional upon, among other things, the satisfaction or, where permitted, waiver of the conditions discussed in the Prospectus prior to the Expiration Date.
