On June 6, 2011, Valmont Industries, Inc. (the Company) and the Subsidiary Guarantors named therein entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the Underwriting Agreement), with Merrill Lynch, Pierce Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as representative of the several underwriters listed on Schedule A thereto, relating to the offer and sale by the Company of $150 million of its 6.625% senior notes due 2020 (the Senior Notes). The sale of the Senior Notes is a public offering pursuant to the Companys Registration Statement on Form S-3 (333-165926) and is expected to close on June 13, 2011. The Senior Notes will pay interest semiannually on April 20th and October 20th beginning October 20, 2011 at a rate of 6.625% per annum until maturity on April 20, 2020. The Company previously issued $300 million in principal amount of 6.625% senior notes due 2020 and the Senior Notes offered and sold under the Underwriting Agreement will become part of the same series as the previously issued notes.
Some of the underwriters or their affiliates have provided investment or commercial banking services to the Company or its affiliates in the past and are likely to do so in the future.
The Underwriting Agreement and form of the Senior Notes are filed herewith as Exhibit 1.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The descriptions of the Underwriting Agreement and Senior Notes are qualified by reference thereto.
