JUNO BEACH, Fla. - NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc. today announced that it will conduct a remarketing of its Series D Debentures due Sept. 1, 2015 (the “Debentures”) (CUSIP No. 302570BK1), which are currently outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $402.5 million, on Aug. 6, 2013 (and, if necessary, on the following two business days). The Debentures were originally issued as part of NextEra Energy, Inc.’s Corporate Units (CUSIP No. 65339F507) on Sept. 21, 2010 (the “Corporate Units”) in conjunction with a Purchase Contract Agreement, dated as of Sept. 1, 2010 (the “Purchase Contract Agreement”). The Debentures are guaranteed by NextEra Energy Capital Holdings’ parent company, NextEra Energy, Inc.
If the remarketing is successful, the interest rate on the Debentures will be reset to a rate that will enable the Debentures to be remarketed at a price equal to or greater than the sum of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price, the Separate Debentures Purchase Price and the Remarketing Fee (as those terms are defined in the Purchase Contract Agreement). The reset interest rate and the subsequent interest payment dates will be established on the date of the successful remarketing and become effective on the third business day following the date of such successful remarketing. The Remarketing Fee will not exceed 0.25 percent of the sum of the Remarketing Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price plus the Separate Debentures Purchase Price.
Upon a successful remarketing, the proceeds of the remarketing of the Debentures that were components of the Corporate Units will be used to purchase a portfolio of U.S. Treasury securities (or principal or interest strips thereof), which will be substituted for the Debentures and pledged to secure the obligation of the holders of the Corporate Units to purchase NextEra Energy common stock on Sept. 1, 2013, pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement. The proceeds from the remarketing of any Debentures that are not a component of Corporate Units and whose holders elect to include some or all of those Debentures in the remarketing will be paid to such holders.
