Item 2.01Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

As previously disclosed in Current Reports on Form-8-K filed by Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 27, 2021 and March 8, 2021, the Company issued two announcements (the “Announcements”) pursuant to the United Kingdom City Code on Takeovers and Mergers disclosing the terms of a recommended cash offer by AMS Holdco 2 Limited (“SWM Bidco”), an indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, to acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Scapa Group plc, a company incorporated in England and Wales (“Scapa”) and listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, to be effected through a scheme of arrangement (the “Scheme”) under Part 26 of the United Kingdom Companies Act 2006, as amended (the “Acquisition”).

 

On April 15, 2021, the Scheme became effective in accordance with its terms following delivery to the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales of the orders of the High Court of Justice of England and Wales sanctioning the Scheme, and the Acquisition was completed. As previously announced, the offer price for the Acquisition was £2.15 in cash for each ordinary share of Scapa, valuing the entire ordinary share capital of Scapa at approximately £412.6 million on a fully-diluted basis. The Company expects to settle the offer consideration with payment to Scapa shareholders under the Scheme by April 29, 2021.

 

As previously disclosed, the Company will use the proceeds from the $350.0 million Term Loan B facility under its existing credit agreement, dated as of September 25, 2018 (as amended on February 9, 2021, the “Existing Credit Agreement”), together with up to $325.0 million of the Company’s $500.0 million revolving line of credit under the Existing Credit Agreement, to finance the cash consideration payable to Scapa shareholders under the Scheme and expenses payable in connection with the Acquisition.

 

The foregoing description of the Acquisition does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by the text of, the two Announcements and the Co-operation Agreement entered into in connection with the Acquisition, which are filed as Exhibits 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.
