Actuant Corp. (ATU) said it intends to offer $250 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due in 2022 in a private placement, subject to market and other conditions.

The company expects the offering will be completed in April 2012. The issuance of the notes will be subject to customary closing conditions.

Actuant will use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the tender offer and consent solicitation for, or the redemption by the company of, as applicable, its existing 6.875% senior notes due 2017 of which $250 million aggregate principal amount is outstanding.

Separately, the company said it initiated an offer to purchase for cash any and all of the $250 million outstanding principal amount of its 6.875% Senior Notes due 2017. In conjunction with the tender offer, Actuant is soliciting consents to effect certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the notes.

The total consideration to be paid for each $1,000 principal amount of the notes tendered, and not validly withdrawn, will be $1,042.16. The total consideration includes a consent payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount, which is payable only to holders who tender their notes and validly deliver their consents prior to the expiration of the consent solicitation. Holders who tender their notes after the expiration of the consent solicitation, but on or prior to the tender expiration, will receive the tender offer consideration of $1,012.16, which is the total consideration minus the consent payment.

The consent solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 13, 2012, unless terminated or extended. The tender offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on April 27, 2012, unless terminated or extended.
