|Item 1.01.|| |
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 1, 2021, PPG Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement with BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and PNC Capital Markets LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), in connection with the issuance and sale by the Company of $700,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 1.200% Notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions expressed therein, the Company agreed to sell the Notes to the Underwriters, and the Underwriters agreed to purchase the Notes for resale. The Underwriting Agreement provides that the Company would sell the Notes to the Underwriters at an issue price of 98.832%, and that the Underwriters would offer the Notes to the public at a price of 99.432% of the principal amounts thereof. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also agreed to indemnify the Underwriters and certain controlling persons against certain liabilities, including certain liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and to contribute to payments if the Underwriters are required to make any payments in respect of any of these liabilities.
On March 4, 2021, the Company completed a public offering of the Notes. The Notes were offered by the Company pursuant to Post-Effective Amendment No. 2 to its Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-232895) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2020 and the Prospectus included therein, as supplemented by a Prospectus Supplement dated March 1, 2021 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 3, 2021.
The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of March 18, 2008 (the “Original Indenture”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 18, 2008, between the Company and the Trustee (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), and a Tenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 4, 2021, between the Company and the Trustee (the “Tenth Supplemental Indenture and, together with the First Supplemental Indenture and the Original Indenture, the “Indenture”). The Company may issue additional debt from time to time pursuant to the Original Indenture. The Indenture contains covenants applicable to the Notes that limit the Company’s ability to, among other things, incur certain liens securing indebtedness, engage in certain consolidations, mergers, conveyances, transfers or leases of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets. The terms of the Notes also require the Company to make an offer to repurchase Notes upon a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined in the Tenth Supplemental Indenture) at a price equal to 101% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest.
The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes, for general corporate purposes, which may include, without limitation, working capital, capital expenditures, investments in or loans to our subsidiaries or joint ventures, repayment of our existing indebtedness or funding possible acquisitions.
The foregoing is a summary of the material terms and conditions of the Underwriting Agreement, Notes and Indenture. Accordingly, the foregoing is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of (i) the Underwriting Agreement, which is set forth in its entirety and filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, (ii) the Original Indenture, which is set forth in its entirety and filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 18, 2008, (iii) the First Supplemental Indenture, which is set forth in its entirety and filed as Exhibit 4.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 18, 2008, (iv) the Tenth Supplemental Indenture, which is set forth in its entirety and filed as Exhibit 4.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and (v) the form of the Notes, which is filed as Exhibit 4.4 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.
