Equitable Holdings Announces Pricing Terms of Cash Tender Offer for Certain of its Debt Securities

Equitable Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: EQH), the leading financial services holding company of Equitable, AllianceBernstein and Equitable Advisors, today announced the pricing terms for its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase the outstanding debt securities (collectively, the “Notes” and each a “Series” of Notes) listed in the table below. Capitalized terms used in this press release and not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Offer to Purchase, dated June 3, 2024, as amended by the Company’s press release dated June 17, 2024 (the “Offer to Purchase”).

The applicable total consideration to be paid in the Tender Offer for each Series of Notes expected to be 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 listed in the table below were determined (pursuant to the Offer to Purchase) at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, June 17, 2024, by the Lead Dealer Manager. The applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration for each Series of Notes includes an Early Tender Premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase by the Company.

In addition, all payments for Notes tendered before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2024 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) that are purchased by the Company 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, which is currently expected to be June 20, 2024 (the “Early Settlement Date”).

The following table sets forth the aggregate principal amounts of each Series of Notes that the Company expects to be accepted for purchase and pricing information for the Tender Offer:

Payable for each $1,000 principal amount of applicable Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase by the Company and includes the Early Tender Premium. In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted will also receive interest on such Notes accrued to the applicable settlement date.

As previously announced, because the total aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline exceeded $569,289,000, the Company does not expect to accept any further tenders of Notes.

The withdrawal rights for the Tender Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2024 and have not been extended; therefore, previously tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn. The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 2, 2024, unless extended or earlier terminated as described in the Offer to Purchase (such time and date, as it may be extended, the “Expiration Date”).

Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn before the Early Tender Deadline and are accepted in the Tender Offer will be purchased, retired and cancelled by the Company on the Early Settlement Date.
