January 5, 2023 - Regal Rexnord Corporation (NYSE: RRX) (the "Company") today announced that it intends to offer senior unsecured notes (the "Notes") in a private placement to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act (the "Notes Offering").
As previously announced, on October 26, 2022, the Company entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Altra Industrial Motion Corp., a Delaware corporation ("Altra") (the "Merger"). The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Notes Offering, together with term loan borrowings under its senior credit facilities and cash on hand, to fund the Merger, repay certain of Altra's outstanding indebtedness and pay related fees and expenses. The closing of the Notes Offering is not conditioned on the closing of the Merger, which, if completed, will occur at or subsequent to the closing of the Notes Offering.

The Notes and the related note guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state or other jurisdiction's securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction.
