Kennedy Wilson Announces Proposed $500.0 Million Senior Notes Offering

Kennedy-Wilson, Inc. (“Kennedy Wilson”), a wholly owned subsidiary of global real estate investment company Kennedy-Wilson Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:KW), today announced its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2030 (the “notes”). The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Kennedy Wilson and will accrue interest payable semi-annually in arrears. The notes will mature on February 1, 2030, unless earlier repurchased or redeemed. The interest rate and other terms of the notes will be determined at the pricing of the offering.

Kennedy Wilson intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, to redeem in full all of its wholly owned subsidiary’s outstanding 3.95% fixed-rate senior unsecured bonds due 2022 (the “KWE bonds”) (£219.8 million outstanding principal amount, or approximately $306.2 million outstanding principal amount based on the closing exchange rate on August 5, 2021, provided by www.reuters.com, of $1.3931 per pound sterling), including accrued and unpaid interest and related premiums and expenses, and to repay approximately $189.3 million of the outstanding principal balance under Kennedy Wilson’s revolving line of credit. This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption of any KWE bonds.

The offering is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). A preliminary prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus describing the terms of the offering has been filed with the SEC and is available on its website at www.sec.gov.

BofA Securities, Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc., Fifth Third Securities, Inc. and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC are acting as joint book-running managers, and PNC Capital Markets LLC and Evercore Group L.L.C. are acting as co-managers, in connection with the offering.
