- Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX) (TSX: OTEX) ("OpenText" or the "Company") announced today that it has priced the offerings of $1.5 billion in total aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured fixed rate notes by OpenText and Open Text Holdings, Inc., a wholly-owned indirect U.S. subsidiary of OpenText ("OTHI"). The offerings were upsized from the previously announced $1.0 billion total aggregate principal amount.

OpenText intends to use the substantial portion of the net proceeds from the offerings to (i) redeem in full the outstanding $850 million aggregate principal amount of OpenText's 5.875% notes due 2026 (the "2026 Notes") and pay the make-whole premium of $25 million that will be paid in connection with such redemption of the 2026 Notes and (ii) pay related fees and expenses; and OpenText expects to use the balance of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including potential future acquisitions.

The offerings consist of $850 million aggregate principal amount of OpenText's 3.875% senior unsecured notes due 2029 (the "OTC notes"), guaranteed initially on a senior unsecured basis by OpenText's existing wholly-owned subsidiaries that borrow or guarantee the Company's obligations under its existing senior credit facilities, and $650 million aggregate principal amount of OTHI's 4.125% senior unsecured notes due 2031 (the "OTHI notes" and collectively with the OTC notes, the "notes"), guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by OpenText and guaranteed initially by OpenText's existing wholly-owned subsidiaries (other than OTHI) that borrow or guarantee OpenText's obligations under its existing senior credit facilities. The offerings are expected to close on November 24, 2021 , subject to customary closing conditions.

The notes and related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The notes and related guarantees may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons, except to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The notes and related guarantees will be offered in Canada under available prospectus exemptions.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the notes and related guarantees. Any offers of the notes and related guarantees will be made only by means of a related private offering memorandum with respect to such notes and related guarantees.

This press release shall not constitute a notice of redemption under the indenture governing the 2026 Notes, dated as of May 31, 2016 . On November 9, 2021 , OpenText delivered to the holders of the 2026 Notes a notice of redemption (the "Notice") that the Company has elected to redeem in full the outstanding $850 million aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Notes on December 9, 2021 . The Notice is conditional on the closing of the offerings by OpenText and OTHI described above.
