Elanco Animal Health Incorporated Announces Tender Offer for 2023 Notes

GREENFIELD, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elanco Animal Health Incorporated (NYSE: ELAN) (“Elanco”) today announced the commencement of a cash tender offer (the “Offer”) for up to $250 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.272% Senior Notes due 2023 (CUSIP No. 28414HAE3) (the “Notes”), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated March 29, 2022.

The Offer is scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of April 25, 2022 (unless extended) (the “Expiration Time”).

Holders of Notes (“Holders”) who validly tender their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 11, 2022 (the “Early Tender Time”) will be eligible to receive the “Total Consideration” of $1,035 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered, which includes the “Early Tender Payment” of $30 per $1,000 of the Notes. Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time but on or before the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive the “Tender Offer Consideration” which is equal to the “Total Consideration” minus the “Early Tender Payment.”

Elanco’s obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered is subject to certain conditions. Elanco may waive any of the conditions if they are not satisfied.

Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Elanco reserves the right, following the Early Tender Time, to accept for purchase prior to the final settlement date all Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time (an “Early Settlement Election”). Elanco will announce whether it intends to exercise the Early Settlement Election following the Early Tender Time.

If Elanco exercises the Early Settlement Election, we currently expect the settlement date for Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time to be promptly after the exercise of the Early Settlement Election. The settlement date for Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time, and accepted by Elanco for purchase in the Offer will occur promptly after the Expiration Time. Notes tendered may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 11, 2022, but not thereafter. In addition to the Total Consideration or Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, Holders whose Notes are accepted for payment in the Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.

If the purchase of all validly tendered Notes on the applicable settlement date would cause Elanco to purchase a principal amount greater than $250 million (the “Tender Cap”), then the Offer will be oversubscribed and Elanco, if it accepts Notes for purchase in the Offer, will accept for purchase tendered Notes on a prorated basis as described in the Offer to Purchase. If the Tender Cap is reached in respect of tenders of Notes made at or prior to the Early Tender Time, no Notes that are tendered after the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase unless the Tender Cap is increased by Elanco, in its sole discretion.

Elanco reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the $250 million tender cap at any time, subject to compliance with applicable law.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (“Citi”) is acting as sole dealer manager for the Offer.

None of Elanco, the dealer manager or the depository and information agent make any recommendations as to whether Holders should tender their Notes pursuant to the Offer, and no one has been authorized by any of them to make such recommendations. Holders must make their own decisions as to whether to tender their Notes, and, if so, the principal amount of Notes to tender.
