ST. LOUIS, Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BellRing Brands, Inc. (NYSE: BRBR) (“BellRing”) today announced an underwritten offering of 4,597,339 shares of its common stock currently owned by Post Holdings, Inc. (“Post”), BellRing’s former parent company. Post expects to exchange such shares of our common stock for certain indebtedness of Post held by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (the “selling stockholder”) prior to the closing of the offering. The selling stockholder then expects to sell such shares of common stock to the underwriters in the offering. BellRing is not selling any shares of its common stock and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares in the offering.
Following the completion of the offering, Post is expected to no longer own any shares of common stock of BellRing.
As part of and subject to the completion of the offering, BellRing intends to concurrently repurchase from the underwriters 925,000 shares out of the aggregate 4,597,339 shares of its common stock that are the subject of the offering. The price per share to be paid by BellRing will equal the price at which the underwriters will purchase the shares of BellRing’s common stock from the selling stockholder in the offering.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC is acting as lead book-runner and representative of the underwriters for the offering. Barclays Capital Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC are acting as additional book-runners for the offering.
The underwriters propose to offer the shares of common stock of BellRing from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the NYSE, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.
A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and has become effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
