JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. Announces Launch of Secondary Offering and Repurchase of Common Stock


CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: JELD) today announced that Onex Corporation and certain investment funds managed by Onex Partners Manager LP and its affiliates (collectively, the "selling shareholders") intend to offer 7,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock for sale in an underwritten public offering. The shares will be offered to the public at a fixed price, which may be changed at any time without notice.

The Company is not selling any shares in this offering and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling shareholders in this offering.

Subject to the completion of the offering, the Company intends to repurchase 800,000 of the aggregate 7,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock that are the subject of the offering (the "share repurchase"). The price per share to be paid by the Company will equal the price at which the underwriter will purchase the shares from the selling shareholders in the offering. Accordingly, the number of shares of the Company's common stock available to the general public will be 6,200,000 shares. The offering of shares is not conditioned upon the completion of such share repurchase.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC is acting as sole underwriter in the offering.
