RR Donnelley Amends Certain Terms of its Maximum Tender Offer for its 4.95% Notes Due May 15, 2010 and Extends the Early Tender Date


CHICAGO, Sep 02, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NASDAQ:RRD) ("RR Donnelley" or the "Company") today announced that it has amended certain terms of and extended the early tender date for its offer (the "Maximum Tender Offer") to purchase up to $125 million in aggregate principal amount (the "Maximum Tender Amount") of its 4.95% Notes due May 15, 2010 (the "2010 Notes").

The early tender date for the Maximum Tender Offer has been extended until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 2, 2009 (the "Early Tender Date"), unless the Company further extends the early tender date for the Maximum Tender Offer or terminates it prior to such date. The Company has also increased the Maximum Tender Amount to $175 million in aggregate principal amount.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 1, 2009, the aggregate principal amount of 2010 Notes tendered in the Maximum Tender Offer was $171,425,000. In the event that no additional tenders are received after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 1, 2009, pro ration of tenders received would not be necessary due to the increase in the Maximum Tender Amount to $175 million.

Holders of 2010 Notes that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date, as extended as described above, and accepted for purchase will still receive $1,010 per $1,000 principal amount of notes accepted for payment, which includes the Early Tender Premium of $20 per $1,000 principal amount. Holders whose 2010 Notes have been accepted for payment and who tendered after the Early Tender Date will receive $990 per $1,000 principal amount of notes accepted for payment.

Tendered 2010 Notes may be withdrawn from the tender offer at or prior to, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 2, 2009.

The expiration of the Maximum Tender Offer has not been extended and remains September 16, 2009.

The Maximum Tender Offer is being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase dated August 19, 2009 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related Letter of Transmittal dated August 19, 2009 (the "Letter of Transmittal"), which sets forth a complete description of the terms of the offers. Holders of 2010 Notes are urged to read the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal carefully before making any decision with respect to the Maximum Tender Offer. The Maximum Tender Offer is conditioned on the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
