BOSTON, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Santander Holdings USA, Inc. (“SHUSA” or the “Company”) today announced results as of the Early Participation Date (as defined below) for its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Offer”) for up to $400,000,000 (“Maximum Amount”) in aggregate principal amount of its 3.450% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “2018 Notes”) and 2.700% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes” and, together with the 2018 Notes, the “Notes”). The Offer is made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated February 1, 2018 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase”). Consummation of the Offer is subject to certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase.


As previously announced, the Early Participation Date for the Offer was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 14, 2018 (the “Early Participation Date”). The Early Participation Date was not extended. Withdrawal rights for the Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 14, 2018, and were not extended. Accordingly, Notes tendered in the Offer may no longer be withdrawn. As the Offer was oversubscribed, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Offer and in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) and proration (in respect of the 2019 Notes), SHUSA intends to accept for purchase Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Offer at or prior to the Early Participation Date in the amounts set forth in the table below.

The applicable “Reference Yield” and resulting “Total Consideration” payable per $1,000 principal amount for each series of Notes subject to the Offer will be determined with respect to such series of Notes at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on February 15, 2018.

The early payment date for the Offer will be promptly following the Early Participation Date and is expected to be on or about February 16, 2018.

Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Offer, SHUSA expects to purchase on the early payment date Notes representing an aggregate principal amount that is equal to the Maximum Amount for the Offer, and therefore SHUSA expects that no additional Notes will be purchased in the Offer, and there will be no final settlement date for the Offer.

SHUSA is making the Offer in order to retire Notes prior to their maturity. SHUSA will fund the purchases of Notes from available cash on hand. The Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain customary conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. The Offer is not conditioned upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of Notes. Subject to applicable law, SHUSA may, at its sole discretion, waive any condition applicable to the Offer and may extend the Offer. Under certain conditions and as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, SHUSA may terminate the Offer before the Expiration Date.

SHUSA has appointed Santander Investment Securities Inc. to act as dealer manager for the Offer, and has retained D.F. King & Co., Inc. to serve as the tender agent and information agent. Requests for documents may be directed to D.F. King & Co., Inc. by email at santander@dfking.com or by telephone at +1 212-269-5550 (banks and brokers) or +1 800-814-2879.
