ST. LOUIS, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Post Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:POST) (the “Company” or “Post”) announced that it has terminated its private offering of convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock”) announced earlier today. As a result, no shares will be sold pursuant to the offering.
Weak market conditions during the trading day precluded reaching the terms the Company had established as a condition for issuing the Preferred Stock. As this was an entirely opportunistic capital raise, Post management terminated the offering.
The Preferred Stock was offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers in an offering exempt from registration pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
