Masonite Announces $125 Million Notes Offering

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Masonite International Corporation (NYSE: DOOR) (the “Company”) announced today that it is proposing to issue an additional $125 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.625% senior notes due 2023 (the “notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), subject to market and other conditions. The notes are expected to be treated as a single series with, and will have the same terms as those of, the $475 million aggregate principal amount of currently outstanding 5.625% senior notes due 2023 previously issued by the Company. The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company and will be guaranteed by certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes for general corporate purposes, which may include funding future acquisitions, the repurchase of the Company’s common shares pursuant to its share repurchase programs and working capital needs. Pending the permanent application thereof, the Company may use all or a portion of the net proceeds to reduce amounts outstanding under its senior secured asset-based credit facility.

The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States, only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act. The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from, or a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the notes, nor does it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
