Now in its 30th year, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Robert Unanue of Goya Foods, and Mindy Grossman of HSN. Recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and 2015 winners Andreas Bechtolsheim and Jayshree Ullal of Arista Networks.

Cott Prices Offer of EUR 450 Million of Senior Notes

TORONTO, ON and TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2016) - Cott Corporation ("Cott") (NYSE: COT) (TSX: BCB) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Cott Finance Corporation (the "Issuer"), priced a private placement offering of EUR 450 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes (the "Notes"). The Notes will mature on July 1, 2024 and interest on the Notes will accrue and be payable semi-annually in arrears on January 1 and July 1 commencing January 1, 2017 at the rate of 5.50% per annum. The Notes will yield gross proceeds to the Issuer of EUR 450 million. The offering was made to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act and other applicable laws. The settlement of the Notes is anticipated to occur on or about June 30, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions. The Issuer expects to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to fund a portion of the purchase price of the acquisition (the "Eden Acquisition") by Carbon Acquisition Co B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cott, of Hydra Dutch Holdings 1 B.V. ("Eden"), to repay a portion of certain of the outstanding indebtedness of the subsidiaries of Eden, and to pay related fees and expenses. Unless the Eden Acquisition has occurred at or prior to the consummation of the Notes offering, the gross proceeds of the Notes initially will be deposited into a segregated escrow account together with an amount sufficient to fund a special mandatory redemption of the Notes. The release of the gross proceeds from escrow will be subject to the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including the substantially concurrent completion of the Eden Acquisition, and the special mandatory redemption shall occur if the Eden Acquisition is not ultimately consummated. Upon the release of the gross proceeds from escrow, the Issuer will amalgamate with Cott and Cott, as the combined company, will assume all of the obligations of the Issuer under the Notes. Following the satisfaction of the escrow release conditions, the Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior, unsecured basis by Cott's existing and future subsidiaries that are also guarantors of the obligations under Cott's existing ABL credit facility. This press release is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any securities. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. In Canada, the Notes will be offered and sold on a private placement basis in certain provinces to accredited investors in reliance on available exemptions from the prospectus requirement of applicable Canadian securities laws. It may be unlawful to distribute this press release in certain jurisdictions. This press release is not for distribution in Japan or Australia.
