ROSELAND, N.J., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP (Nasdaq: ADP), a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, today announced the pricing of a public offering of $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of its 1.70% senior notes due 2028.

ADP expects to receive the net offering proceeds upon closing on or about May 14, 2021. The intended use of proceeds from the offering is to effect share repurchases under ADP's existing share repurchase program, subject to market conditions, and any remainder is for general corporate purposes. ADP anticipates that any share repurchases funded by the proceeds of the offering will be completed within a 6 to 12 month timeframe, subject to market conditions. These share repurchases are expected to be incremental to share repurchases conducted in the normal course of business, which are intended to offset dilution from employee benefit plans and return excess cash to shareholders, subject to market conditions.

"This anticipated debt offering enhances our capital structure and is consistent with ADP's commitment to a very strong investment grade credit rating" said Carlos Rodriguez, President and Chief Executive Officer, ADP.
