JUNO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc. today announced that it will conduct a remarketing of its Series G Debentures due Sept. 1, 2018 (the "Debentures") (CUSIP No. 65339K AJ9), which are currently outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $500 million, on Aug. 25, 2016 (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. 65339F 861) on Sept. 25, 2013 (the "Corporate Units") in conjunction with a Purchase Contract Agreement, dated as of Sept. 1, 2013 (the "Purchase Contract Agreement"). The Debentures are guaranteed by NextEra Energy Capital Holdings' parent company, NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE).
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 100 percent of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures being remarketed and the Remarketing Fee (as this term is defined in the Officer's Certificate, dated Sept. 25, 2013, creating the terms of the Debentures under the Indenture, dated as of June 1, 1999, as amended). The reset interest rate and the subsequent interest payment dates will be established on the date of the successful remarketing and become effective on Sept. 1, 2016. The Remarketing Fee will not exceed 0.25 percent of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures being remarketed.
Upon a successful remarketing, an amount of proceeds of the remarketing of the Debentures that are components of the Corporate Units equal to the aggregate principal amount of such Debentures will be applied to satisfy in full the obligation of the holders of the Corporate Units to purchase NextEra Energy common stock on Sept. 1, 2016, pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement. The proceeds from the remarketing of any Debentures that are not a component of the Corporate Units and whose holders elect to include some or all of those Debentures in the remarketing, in an amount equal to the principal amount thereof, will be paid to such holders.
