Talen Energy Corporation Announces Early Tender Results of its Previously Announced Tender Offer to Repurchase up to $600,000,000 of its Common Stock

HOUSTON, June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Talen Energy Corporation ("Talen" or the "Company") (OTCQX: TLNE) announced today the early tender results of its previously announced modified "Dutch auction" tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash up to an aggregate purchase price of $600,000,000 (and, at the Company's option, up to an additional $12,000,000) (the "Tender Cap") of shares (the "Shares") of its common stock (the "Common Stock"). The Tender Offer is part of the Company's recently upsized $1 billion share repurchase program that was approved by its Board of Directors in May 2024. The Tender Offer remains subject to certain terms and conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase, dated as of May 29, 2024 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Offer to Purchase").

"We are pleased today to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to shareholder returns, in the form of this successful $612 million purchase of tendered stock," said Mac McFarland, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The tender leaves us with nearly $400 million in our authorized share repurchase program that we can deploy for further share buybacks."

As of 5:00 p.m. ET on June 12, 2024 (the "Early Tender Time"), valid tenders have been delivered with respect to a total of 15,623,319 Shares of the Company's Common Stock. The Company has accepted for payment and will purchase $612,000,000 of the Company's Common Stock, or 5,275,862 Shares, representing 9.0% of the Company's outstanding Common Stock, promptly after the Early Tender Time (the "Early Settlement"). The purchase is at a price of $116.00 per share (the "Clearing Price"), which was the single lowest price that would result in an aggregate payment amount equal to the Tender Cap.  After giving effect to the priority of the odd lots, the Company will apply a proration factor of approximately 52.5% of the Shares tendered at the Clearing Price. The Company will use cash on hand to fund the Early Settlement.

Although the Tender Offer expires at 5:00 p.m. ET on June 27, 2024, because the Tender Offer was oversubscribed at the Early Tender Time, no additional Shares will be accepted. Shares that were tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Time may not be withdrawn unless otherwise required by applicable law.
