BMC Software Announces Cash Tender Offers and Consent Solicitations for Its 4.25% Notes Due 2022 and 4.50% Notes Due 2022

BMC Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: BMC) (the “Company”) today announced that it has commenced tender offers to purchase for cash any and all of its issued and outstanding 4.25% Notes due 2022 (the “4.25% Notes”) and 4.50% Notes due 2022 (the “4.50% Notes” and, together with the 4.25% Notes, the “Notes”). In conjunction with the tender offers, the Company is soliciting consents to the adoption of proposed amendments to the indentures governing the Notes (the “Proposed Amendments”).

The pricing terms for the tender offers and consent solicitations are set forth below.

055921AC4 US055921AC48 $300,000,000 4.50% Notes due 2022 $990.00 $25.00 $1,015.00
      (1)   Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes and excluding accrued interest, which will be paid in addition to the Total Consideration or Purchase Price, as applicable, up to the payment date.
(2) Included in Total Consideration.
 

The Proposed Amendments would amend the indentures in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 6, 2013, by and among the Company, Boxer Parent Company Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”) and Boxer Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), as amended from time to time (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation (such transaction, the “Acquisition”).

The Company is conducting the tender offers and solicitations in connection with the proposed Acquisition and related financing. Under the indentures as currently in effect, the closing of the Acquisition is expected to result in a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined in the indentures), requiring the Company to make a Change of Control Offer (as defined in the indentures). The tender offers are being conducted in advance of the completion of the Acquisition in lieu of a Change of Control Offer (as defined in the indentures). Pursuant to the indentures as currently in effect, notice of a Change of Control Offer may be made at least 30 days prior to the consummation of the proposed Acquisition, with payment to be made on such date, including accrued and unpaid interest to but not including such settlement date. The Total Consideration (as defined below) offered in the tender offers represents a premium above that which would be offered to holders in a Change of Control Offer. In addition to the Total Consideration, holders who validly tender Notes will receive accrued interest up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date, which we expect to coincide with the closing of the Acquisition. The Company is seeking consents from the holders of the Notes to amend the definition of “Change of Control” in each indenture so that the Acquisition does not constitute a “Change of Control” or result in a “Change of Control Triggering Event” under either indenture and to make certain other related changes to each indenture. As a consequence, the adoption of the Proposed Amendments will eliminate our requirement to make a Change of Control Offer to holders that do not validly tender their Notes. The Proposed Amendments will be effected by supplemental indentures to the indentures.

The Company anticipates that the Acquisition will be completed in the third calendar quarter of 2013. Adoption of the Proposed Amendments is not a condition to the consummation of the Acquisition or to the financing of the Acquisition. For more information regarding the proposed amendments to the indentures, please refer to the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent, each dated as of the date hereof.

The tender offers are each currently scheduled to expire at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on August 15, 2013, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended with respect to each series of Notes, the “Expiration Date”). Holders of Notes must validly tender (and not validly withdraw) their Notes and validly deliver (and not validly revoke) their corresponding consents with respect to such offer at or prior to 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on July 31, 2013, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended with respect to each series of Notes, the “Consent Time”), to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (the “Total Consideration”) of $1,015.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered, which includes a Consent Payment of $25.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered (the “Consent Payment” ), as set forth in the table above. Holders who tender their Notes after the Consent Time and on or prior to the Expiration Date will be eligible to receive the Purchase Price of $990.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered (the “Purchase Price”) set forth in the table above, but not the Consent Payment. The Total Consideration (including the Consent Payment) will only be payable to holders of Notes who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes, and who validly deliver and do not validly revoke the corresponding consent at or prior to the Consent Time, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase. Tendered Notes may be withdrawn and consents may be revoked at or prior to such time and date as the Company receives the Requisite Consent (as defined below) and executes the applicable new supplemental indenture (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Withdrawal Deadline”), but may not thereafter be withdrawn or revoked. The Company may extend the Consent Time with respect to either offer without extending the Withdrawal Deadline with respect to such offer. A holder of Notes cannot deliver a consent without tendering its corresponding Notes or tender its Notes without delivering a corresponding consent.

In either tender offer and solicitation, if all of the conditions to such tender offer and solicitation are satisfied or waived, the Company reserves the right, at any time following the Consent Time but prior to the Expiration Date (the “Early Acceptance Date”), to accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) before the Early Acceptance Date (the “Early Purchase Option”). If the Company exercises the Early Purchase Option, the Early Acceptance Date will be a business day chosen by the Company, in its sole discretion, following the Consent Time.

Upon the terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent, the Company will accept for purchase any and all outstanding Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to such tender offer on or prior to the Expiration Date (the “Final Acceptance Date”), provided such Notes were not accepted on the Early Acceptance Date, with respect to such tender offer and consent solicitation. Payment of the Total Consideration or the Purchase Price, as applicable for the Notes so accepted for purchase will be made promptly following the Acceptance Date (the “Final Settlement Date”). The Company reserves the right to waive any and all conditions of the tender offers, in whole or in part, subject to applicable law.

In addition to the Total Consideration or Purchase Price, as applicable, holders of Notes tendered and accepted for payment will receive on the applicable Settlement Date accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from the last interest payment date for the Notes up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date, which the Company expects to coincide with the closing of the Acquisition. The Company may extend the Expiration Date and, consequently, the Final Acceptance Date and the Final Settlement Date, to coincide with the closing of the Acquisition.

The consummation of each tender offer is conditioned upon (a) the receipt of consents at or prior to the Consent Time from holders of at least a majority of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of such series of Notes (with respect to each series of Notes, the “Requisite Consent”), (b) the valid execution of the supplemental indenture relating to that series of Notes, (c) the consummation of the Acquisition and (d) satisfaction of certain other customary conditions.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or purchase, or a solicitation of an offer to sell or purchase, or the solicitation of tenders or consents with respect to, any security. No offer, solicitation, purchase or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The tender offers will only be made pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent.

The complete terms and conditions of each tender offer are set forth in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement that is being sent to holders of the Notes. Holders are urged to read the tender offer documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the tender offers and the consent solicitations. Holders of Notes must make their own decisions as to whether to tender any or all of their Notes and provide the related consent.

Holders may obtain copies of the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent from the Information Agent and Depositary for the tender offer, D.F. King and Co., Inc., at (212) 269-5550 (collect, for banks and brokers only) and (800) 967-4604 (toll free).

Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC and Barclays Capital Inc. are the Dealer Managers for the tender offers and Solicitation Agents for the consent solicitations. Questions regarding the tender offer and consent solicitation may be directed to Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC at (800) 820-1653 (toll free) and (212) 538-2147 (collect).

None of the Company, the Dealer Managers and Solicitation Agents, the Information Agent and Depositary or any other person makes any recommendation as to whether holders of Notes should tender their Notes or provide the related consents, and no one has been authorized to make such a recommendation.
