“Strengthening our balance sheet is a critical objective for Tupperware and a top priority of the management team,” said Sandra Harris, chief financial officer of Tupperware. “In recent months we have taken swift actions to accelerate cost savings and have increased our turnaround plan commitments in response to COVID-19 and in an effort to maintain compliance with our debt covenants from our recently amended credit agreement. We continue to work proactively with various financial sources and advisors to address our liquidity and cash flow needs ahead of the June 2021 Senior Notes maturity. The tender offer we are announcing is our first important action in this regard.”

Holders whose Notes are accepted by the Company for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, will also be eligible to receive accrued and unpaid interest on their Notes accepted for purchase, up to, but excluding, the date of payment of the applicable consideration.
