On August 28, 2020, Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) delivered a conditional notice of redemption to holders of its 6.75% Senior Secured Notes due 2022 (the “Notes”). The notice states that the Company will redeem on September 28, 2020 (the “Redemption Date”), subject to the satisfaction of the condition described below, all $150,00,000 aggregate principal amount outstanding of the Notes (reflected on the Company’s balance sheet as of June 30, 2020 as $148,574,000 outstanding due to certain notes held in treasury). The redemption is conditional and subject to the consummation (as and when determined by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion) of a financing sufficient to provide funds on deposit with The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A (the “Trustee”) to redeem the Notes on terms and conditions satisfactory in all respects to the Company in its sole and absolute discretion on or prior to the Redemption Date.
The Company has instructed the Trustee to send a notice of conditional redemption in the name of the Company to all currently registered holders of the Notes. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute a notice of redemption under the Indenture, nor an offer to tender for, or purchase, any Notes or any other security.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements related to, among other things, the completion of the conditional redemption of the Notes or the consummation of the related financing transactions constitute forward-looking statements. For a discussion of the factors that could cause future performance to be different than anticipated, reference is made to Factors Affecting "Forward-Looking Statements" and Part 1A - Risk Factors in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Any forward-looking statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K are qualified by these cautionary statements, and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by the Company will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, the Company or its business or operations.
