Nokia Announces Indicative Maximum Acceptance Amount and Pricing of its New Euro-Denominated Notes

Espoo, Finland. Nokia announced on 6 May 2020 the launch of the Tender Offer described in the Tender Offer Memorandum. On 6 May 2020, Nokia priced a new issue of €500,000,000 2.375 per cent. Notes due 15 May 2025 and €500,000,000 3.125 per cent. Notes due 15 May 2028 (the "New Notes").

The indicative Maximum Acceptance Amount in respect of the Tender Offer has been set at €150,000,000. Nokia reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to accept less than the Maximum Acceptance Amount for purchase or to increase the Maximum Acceptance Amount.

 

Whether Nokia will purchase any Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer is subject, without limitation, to the successful completion (in the sole determination of Nokia) of the issue of the New Notes (the "New Financing Condition"). Even if the New Financing Condition is satisfied (or waived), Nokia is not under any obligation to accept for purchase any Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer. The acceptance for purchase by Nokia of Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer is at the sole discretion of Nokia and tenders may be rejected by Nokia for any reason, subject to applicable law.

 

Nokia expects to announce the results of the Tender Offer (including the final Maximum Acceptance Amount) as soon as reasonably practicable on 14 May 2020. The Settlement Date for the Tender Offer and the New Notes is expected to be 15 May 2020.
