October 20, 2022 – Hudson, Ohio, United States of America – Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (ISIN: US2536511031, the “Company”) announces that the Company, certain of its subsidiaries and a group of certain creditors representing 78.8% of the aggregate principal amount of the term loans under the existing credit agreement dated November 23, 2015 (the “Existing Term Loans”), 59.3% of the aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 8.5% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Senior Notes”), 91.8% of the aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9.375% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 USD Senior Notes”) and 85.4% of the aggregate principal amount of the 9.000% Senior Notes due 2025 issued by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Diebold Nixdorf Dutch Holding B.V. (the “2025 EUR Senior Notes”) have agreed on the principal terms of a new money financing, recapitalization and exchanges that address certain near-term debt maturities and accordingly entered into a transaction support agreement (the “Transaction”).

The transaction support agreement contemplates, among other things, that:

  • The Company and certain of its subsidiaries will obtain a new $250 million asset-based credit facility (the “ABL Facility”), which will mature in July 2026, subject to a springing maturity to a date that is 91 days prior to the maturity of certain indebtedness of the Company or its subsidiaries above a certain threshold. The ABL Facility is expected to be provided by, and replace the commitments of, the Company’s existing revolving credit lenders under the existing credit agreement.
  • Diebold Nixdorf Holding Germany GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, will obtain a new $400 million super-senior term loan credit facility (the “Super Senior Facility”), which will mature in July 2025. Certain current participating lenders who have signed the transaction support agreement have provided commitments subject to satisfaction of the conditions specified therein, totaling the full $400 million with respect to the Super Senior Facility, subject to additional participating creditors who sign the transaction support agreement by October 27, 2022 (the “Joinder Date”) having the option to elect to provide a portion of the commitments with respect to the Super Senior Facility, which would replace certain of the existing commitments.
  • Holders of Existing Term Loans will be offered the opportunity to exchange such Existing Term Loans at par into extended term loans (the “Extended Term Loans”), which will mature in July 2025. On the closing date, a portion of the proceeds of the Super Senior Facility will be applied to prepay 15% of the principal amount of the Extended Term Loans. In addition, the Company will be required to prepay the Extended Term Loans on December 31, 2023 in an amount equal to 5% of the principal amount of Existing Term Loans exchanged into Extended Term Loans, subject to satisfaction of a specified minimum liquidity threshold. If such minimum liquidity threshold is not satisfied on December 31, 2023, such prepayment will instead be required on December 31, 2024 subject to satisfaction of the same condition. Holders of Existing Term Loans who have signed the transaction support agreement prior to the Joinder Date will receive, on the closing date, a transaction premium of 3.0% of Extended Term Loans received in exchange for Existing Term Loans, paid in the form of Extended Term Loans.
  • Holders of 2024 Senior Notes will be offered the opportunity to exchange such 2024 Senior Notes (i) at 95% of par into new secured notes issued by the Company (the “2L Notes”), which will mature in October 2026, and (ii) into a ratable amount of penny warrants (the “Warrants”) exercisable for common shares in the Company, the total amount of which will represent 19.99% of the outstanding common shares in the Company. The Warrants will be non-detachable and not exercisable until April 2024, subject to certain exceptions. The Company will also solicit consents from holders of the 2024 Senior Notes to amend the indenture for the 2024 Senior Notes as necessary to, among other things, allow the Transaction, remove substantially all negative covenants and mandatory prepayments (to the extent permitted, including under applicable law), and to extend the grace period under the indenture for the 2024 Senior Notes applicable with respect to defaults in payment of interest to run until the maturity date of the 2024 Senior Notes. Holders of 2024 Senior Notes who have signed the transaction support agreement prior to the Joinder Date will receive, on the closing date, a transaction premium of 5.0% of the principal amount of such 2024 Senior Notes, paid in the Form of 2L Notes.
  • The Company will also solicit consents from holders of the 2025 Senior Notes, to amend the indentures for the 2025 Senior Notes and related documentation as necessary to, among other things, allow the Transaction and provide the 2025 Senior Notes with certain covenant, collateral and guarantee enhancements. Holders of 2025 Senior Notes who have signed the transaction support agreement prior to the Joinder Date will receive, on the closing date, a transaction premium of 3.0% of such 2025 Senior Notes, paid in the form of 2025 Senior Notes.
  • The Company will also solicit consents from lenders under the existing credit agreement to amend the existing credit agreement as necessary to, among other things, permit the Transaction, remove substantially all negative covenants and mandatory prepayments, and to direct the administrative agent to release the liens on certain collateral securing the Company’s and the existing subsidiary guarantors’ obligations under the existing credit agreement (in each case, to the extent permitted, including under applicable law).

The closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including execution and delivery of definitive documentation, receipt of all necessary consents to the consummation, including obtaining certain minimum consent- and exchange thresholds under the existing credit agreement and the indenture for the 2024 Senior Notes and certain consent thresholds under the indenture for the 2025 Senior Notes, as well as other customary closing conditions. If the closing date of the Transaction does not occur prior to December 20, 2022, an in-kind ticking fee in the form of additional loans under the Super Senior Facility will be paid at a rate per annum equal to 100% of the interest rate margin applicable to SOFR loans (as determined according to each party’s commitment) under the Super Senior Facility. If the closing date of the transaction does not occur prior to December 31, 2022 (unless extended), the transaction support agreement will terminate.

Upon entering into the transaction support agreement with its lenders and bondholders, the Company today revised its outlook for full-year (FY) 2022 and its strategic operating model for FY2023 and FY2024 summarized below. Given the Company’s elevated backlog and where we are in the year, the Company expects to have full coverage for forecast product revenue in 2022. The FY2022 operating forecast reflects the effects of supply chain challenges, which have led to deferred product revenue from FY2022 to FY2023 for approximately 2,500 ATMs, 2,000 self-checkout (SCO) and 7,000 electronic point of sale (EPOS) units. Adjusted EBITDA primarily reflects deferred revenue flow through. The updated unlevered free cash flow forecast reflects the normalization of working capital and certain cash costs related to the transaction support agreement process. The FY2023 strategic operating model reflects sufficient backlog coverage to satisfy 45-50% of FY2023 Product revenue. By year-end 2022, backlog is expected to be at approximately $1.3 billion, which equates to securing approximately 80% of FY2023 Product revenue. Additionally, 70% of the $2.1 billion Services business revenues are recurring, which provides for $1.4 billion in contract coverage of the FY2023 Services revenue.

1 - With respect to the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook, the Company is not providing a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty those items that may affect such measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. These measures primarily exclude future restructuring actions and net non-routine items. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, operating profit and net income calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for additional information regarding the Company’s use of non-GAAP financial measures.

2 – Unlevered free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations less capital expenditures, less cash used for capitalized software development, and excluding the impact of changes in cash of assets held for sale and the use of cash for M&A and the legal settlement for impaired cloud implementation costs, excluding the use of cash for the settlement of foreign exchange derivative instruments and excluding the use of cash for interest payments. With respect to the Company’s non-GAAP unlevered free cash flow outlook, it is not providing a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty those items that may affect such measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. This measure primarily excludes the future impact of changes in cash of assets held for sale, cash used for M&A activities and the settlement of foreign exchange derivative instruments. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, net cash provided (used) by operating activities calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see NonGAAP Financial Measures” for additional information regarding the Company’s use of non-GAAP financial measures.

Additionally, the Company is providing the following forecasted number of revenue units by product by year:

Units FY2022 FY2023 FY2024
ATMs 52,000 60,000 63,000
SCOs 25,000 35,000 40,000

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including non-GAAP results, adjusted diluted earnings per share, free cash flow (use) and unlevered free cash flow (use), net debt, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and constant currency results. The Company calculates constant currency by translating the prior year results at current year exchange rates. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Also, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in establishing operational goals. The Company also believes providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, helps investors evaluate its operating and financial performance and trends in its business, consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. The Company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful to investors in comparing its performance to the performance of other companies, although its non-GAAP financial measures are specific to the Company and the non-GAAP financial measures of other companies may not be calculated in the same manner. The Company provides EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that investors and securities analysts will find EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to be useful measures for evaluating its operating performance and comparing its operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating its ability to meet its future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements. The Company is also providing EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in light of its credit agreement and the secured and unsecured senior notes. The Company considers free cash flow (use) to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that, after the purchase of property and equipment and capitalized software development, changes in cash of assets held for sale and the use of cash for M&A and the legal settlement for impaired cloud implementation costs, and excluding the use/proceeds of cash for the settlement of foreign exchange derivative instruments, can be used for debt servicing, strategic opportunities, including investing in the business, making strategic acquisitions, strengthening the balance sheet and paying dividends. Unlevered free cash flow (use) provides incremental visibility into the Company’s liquidity by excluding cash used for interest payments from free cash flow (use).
