This Amendment No. 3 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (this Amendment No. 3) is filed by (i) Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Fortune Brands), and (ii) Tahiti Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (the Purchaser) and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortune Brands. This Amendment No. 3 amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on April 14, 2015, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed with the SEC on April 27, 2015 and Amendment No. 2 filed with the SEC on April 30, 2015 (the Initial Schedule TO and which, together with this Amendment No. 3 and any amendments and supplements thereto, this Schedule TO) and relates to the offer by the Purchaser to purchase all outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (each a Share), of Norcraft Companies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Norcraft), at a price of $25.50 per Share, net to the seller in cash, without interest, less any required withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated April 14, 2015 (as it may be amended or supplemented, the Offer to Purchase) and in the related Letter of Transmittal (as it may be amended or supplemented, the Letter of Transmittal and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the Offer), copies of which are attached to the Initial Schedule TO as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively.
Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Initial Schedule TO and the related exhibits incorporated therein by reference.
Items 1 through 9 and Item 11
The Offer to Purchase and Items 1 through 9 and Item 11 of the Initial Schedule TO, to the extent such Items incorporate by reference the information contained in the Offer to Purchase, are hereby amended and supplemented as follows:
At 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on May 11, 2015, the Offer expired as scheduled. The Offer was not extended. The Depositary has advised the Purchaser that, as of the expiration of the Offer, a total of 14,798,762 Shares were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, representing approximately 78% of the currently issued and outstanding Shares. As a result, the Minimum Condition has been satisfied. All Shares that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer have been accepted for payment.
Following the expiration of the Offer and acceptance for payment of the Shares on May 12, 2015, the Purchaser intends to effect a Merger with Norcraft pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement and without a meeting of Norcraft stockholders pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL. The Merger is expected to be consummated on or about May 12, 2015. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, the Purchaser will be merged with and into Norcraft, with Norcraft continuing as the surviving corporation and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortune Brands. At the Effective Time, each Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (i) Shares held by Norcraft as treasury stock or by a Norcraft subsidiary or owned by Fortune Brands or the Purchaser, all of which will be canceled, and (ii) Shares owned by any stockholder of Norcraft who was entitled to demand, and who properly demanded, appraisal rights pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL) will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Offer Price, less any required withholding taxes.
As promptly as practicable following the consummation of the Merger, Fortune Brands intends to cause all Shares to be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange and deregistered under the Exchange Act, after which the Company will no longer have reporting obligations under the Exchange Act.
On May 12, 2015, Fortune Brands issued a press release announcing, among other things, the expiration of the Offer and the acceptance of Shares. The press release is attached as Exhibit (a)(5)(D) and is incorporated herein by reference.
