SPX Corporation Announces Receipt of Requisite Consents for and Pricing of Its Previously Announced Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation for its 7 5/8% Notes due 2014

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) (the "Company") today announced that, in connection with its previously announced offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash any and all of its 7 5/8% Notes due 2014 (the "Notes") and related consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation"), it has received the requisite consents to amend the indenture governing the Notes.  The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation, which are referred to collectively as the "Offer," are described in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated January 8, 2014 (the "Statement") and the related Consent and Letter of Transmittal, which has been sent to the holders of the Notes.

The Consent Solicitation expired at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on January 22, 2014 (the "Consent Deadline").  At the Consent Deadline, $340.26 million aggregate principal amount of Notes, representing 68.05% of the outstanding Notes, had been validly tendered and not withdrawn.  As a result, the requisite number of consents have been received with respect to the Consent Solicitation.  Accordingly, the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes, entered into a supplemental indenture, which amended the indenture to, among other things, eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants (other than, among other covenants, the covenant to pay interest and premium, if any, on, and principal of, the Notes when due), eliminate certain events of default, and reduce the minimum redemption notice period from 30 days to three business days.

Holders of Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Consent Deadline and accepted for purchase received the "Total Consideration" specified in the table below, which included the Consent Payment (as defined in the Statement), on January 23, 2014 (the "Initial Settlement Date").  Holders of Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn after the Consent Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Time (as defined below) and accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the "Tender Offer Consideration," namely the Total Consideration minus the Consent Payment specified in the table below.  In addition to the Total Consideration or Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, holders of Notes accepted for purchase have received or will receive Accrued Interest (as defined in the Statement) on those Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the Initial Settlement Date or the expected Final Settlement Date (as defined below), as the case may be.

The withdrawal deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 22, 2014 (the "Withdrawal Deadline") has passed and has not been extended.  Holders of Notes who validly tendered their Notes prior to the Withdrawal Deadline, and holders of Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Withdrawal Deadline but on or prior to the Expiration Time, may not withdraw their tendered Notes unless we are required to extend withdrawal rights under applicable law. 

The Company currently intends, but is under no obligation, to call for redemption and satisfy and discharge, in accordance with the terms of the indenture, any and all of the Notes that are not tendered as of the Expiration Time on the Final Settlement Date.
