Teck Announces Pricing of Cash Tender Offer

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) (“Teck”) announced today the pricing terms of its previously announced tender offer (as amended and supplemented, the “Tender Offer) to purchase up to US$650 million aggregate principal amount of the outstanding notes (collectively, the “Notes” and each a “Series” of Notes) identified in Teck’s Offer to Purchase dated May 24, 2022 (as amended by Teck’s news releases dated June 7, 2022 and June 14, 2022 and as it may be further amended or supplemented, the “Offer to Purchase”). The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in the Offer to Purchase, which may be obtained from Global Bondholder Services Corporation as described below.

The total consideration to be paid in the Tender Offer for each Series of Notes accepted for purchase was determined by reference to a fixed spread specified for such Series of Notes over the yield (the “Reference Yield”) based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Security, in each case as set forth in the table below (the “Total Tender Offer Consideration”). The Reference Yields (as determined pursuant to the Offer to Purchase) listed in the table below were determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, June 14, 2022, by the Dealer Managers (identified below). The Total Tender Offer Consideration for each Series of Notes includes an Early Tender Premium (as defined below) of US$50 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase by Teck.

The following table sets forth pricing information for the Tender Offer for each Series with respect to which Teck intends to accept Notes for purchase:

(1) As amended by Teck’s news release dated June 7, 2022. Includes the Early Tender Premium of US$50 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes for each Series (the “Early Tender Premium”).

(2) Per US$1,000 principal amount of the Notes that are accepted for purchase.

Teck also announced that it intends to accept for purchase US$650 million aggregate principal amount of Notes, which is the Revised Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) on or before the Early Tender Deadline, subject to all conditions to the Tender Offer having been either satisfied or waived by Teck. These Notes will be purchased on the “Early Settlement Date”, which is currently expected to occur on June 16, 2022, subject to all conditions to the Tender Offer having been either satisfied or waived by Teck.

The amount of each series of Notes that is to be purchased on the Early Settlement Date will be determined in accordance with the acceptance priority levels and the proration procedures described in the Offer to Purchase, subject to the Revised Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount. It is expected that the 6.250% Notes due 2041 and the 6.125% Notes due 2035 accepted for purchase will not be subject to proration, and that the 6.000% Notes due 2040 accepted for purchase will be subject to a proration factor of approximately 5.0%. Since the Tender Offer was fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, holders who validly tender Notes after such date and on or before the Expiration Date (as defined below) will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase.

Notes tendered in the Tender Offer that have not been accepted for purchase due to proration will be returned promptly to the tendering holders. The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire one minute after 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 28, 2022. Because holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer validly tendered and did not validly withdraw Notes on or before the Early Tender Deadline in an amount that exceeds the Revised Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), Teck does not expect to accept for purchase any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline. Since the Withdrawal Deadline (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) has passed, Notes may not be withdrawn, subject to applicable law.

All payments for Notes tendered on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 13, 2022 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) that are purchased by Teck will also include accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant Series of Notes up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date.
