Chicago, Illinois – March 28, 2023: Multi-Color Corporation (MCC), today announced the commencement of an offering of $300.0 million in aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2028 (the “Notes”) in a private offering exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes will be guaranteed, on a secured senior basis, by LABL Acquisition Corporation and each of the Company’s existing and subsequently acquired or organized direct or indirect wholly-owned U.S. restricted subsidiaries, with certain exceptions (the “Guarantors”). There can be no assurance that the proposed offering of Notes will be completed. 

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering (i) to fund a potential acquisition, (ii) to repay the borrowings outstanding under its senior secured asset-based loan facility and (iii) for general corporate purposes, which may include repaying, redeeming or repurchasing outstanding debt. 

The Notes and the guarantees will be offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to non-U.S. persons in offshore transactions in compliance with Regulation S, each under the Securities Act. 

The Notes and the guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.
