OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 23, 2018--
LSB Industries, Inc. (NYSE:LXU) (“LSB”) today announced the expiration
and results of its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender
Offer”) to purchase any and all outstanding $375,000,000 aggregate
principal amount of its 8.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 (CUSIP No.
502160AL8) (the “Notes”). The Tender Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New
York City time, on April 20, 2018 (the “Expiration Time”).
As of the Expiration Time, $337,386,000 aggregate principal amount of
Notes, or 89.97% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding,
had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, which did not
include $20,397,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes that remained
subject to guaranteed delivery procedures as of the Expiration Time. The
complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer were set forth in an
Offer to Purchase, dated April 16, 2018 (the “Offer to Purchase”).
LSB expects to accept for payment all Notes validly tendered and not
validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Time and, in accordance with
the terms of the Offer to Purchase, will pay all holders of such Notes
$1,023.88 per $1,000 principal amount for all Notes accepted in the
Tender Offer, plus a cash payment representing the accrued and unpaid
interest on such Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not
including, the settlement date. LSB expects to make payment for the
Notes on April 25, 2018, subject to the closing of LSB’s previously
announced issuance and sale of $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount
of its 9.625% notes due 2023 and to the satisfaction or waiver by LSB of
the other conditions listed in the Offer to Purchase. Following the
consummation of the Tender Offer, LSB intends to redeem any Notes not
validly tendered and purchased in the Tender Offer.

Offer. The information and tender agent was D.F. King & Co., Inc.
