MAUMEE, Ohio, May 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) ("Dana") today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Dana Financing Luxembourg S.à r.l. (the "Issuer"), is proposing to issue €425 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2031 (the "2031 Notes") in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The 2031 Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Dana. Dana intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the 2031 Notes (i) to redeem $200 million of the Issuer's outstanding 5.750% Senior Notes due 2025 (the "2025 Notes"), (ii) to repay $245 million of outstanding borrowings under Dana's revolving credit facility and (iii) to pay related fees and expenses. This transaction is expected to be leverage neutral.
Additionally, the Issuer today issued a conditional notice of partial redemption for $200 million of the Issuer's outstanding 2025 Notes on June 9, 2023 (the "Redemption Date"), at a redemption price of 100.000% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The redemption of the 2025 Notes is conditioned on the Company receiving funds from the offer and sale of at least €425 million aggregate principal amount of newly issued debt securities of the Issuer (the "Financing Condition"). If the Financing Condition is not satisfied on or prior to the Redemption Date, the conditional notice of partial redemption may be rescinded by the Issuer and shall be of no effect.
The 2031 Notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States, only to non-U.S. investors in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The 2031 Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from registration requirements or a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act or any state securities laws.
This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction. This news release does not constitute a notice of redemption of the 2025 Notes.
