OLD MUTUAL SUBSIDIARY OLD MUTUAL PLC ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF TENDER OFFERS

 

Old Mutual notes that its subsidiary, Old Mutual plc, has announced the results of the tender offers (the "Offers") in respect of its £500,000,000 8 per cent. Subordinated Notes due 3 June 2021 (of which £340,884,000 is currently outstanding) (ISIN: XS0632932538) (the "2021 Securities") and its £450,000,000 7.875 per cent. Subordinated Notes due 3 November 2025 (of which £60,842,000 is currently outstanding) (ISIN: XS1312138750) (the "2025 Securities" and, together with the 2021 Securities, the "Securities") today, 18 July 2018.

The tender offers expired at 4:00 p.m., London time, on 17 July 2018.

Old Mutual plc has decided to accept for purchase all Securities validly tendered pursuant to the Offers. Settlement of the Offers is expected to take place on 19 July 2018, following which the nominal amount of the principal outstanding of the 2021 Securities shall be £72,102,000 and the nominal amount of the principal outstanding of the 2025 Securities shall be £44,889,000. Old Mutual plc will deploy approximately £334 million of its available liquidity in settlement of the Offers.

The premiums paid to incentivise take-up of the Offers will result in a charge to Old Mutual's consolidated profit and loss, and a corresponding decrease in its consolidated net asset value, of approximately £14 million (ZAR 248 million, based on a closing ZAR/GBP exchange rate on 17 July 2018 of 17.39). However, there will be no impact on Old Mutual's consolidated results from operations, adjusted headline earnings and return on net asset value, because these key performance indicators exclude the results and net assets of the Residual Old Mutual plc entities as non-core operations.

The body of Old Mutual plc's announcement relating to the results of the Offers (as published on the London Stock Exchange website) is set out below.
