Aptiv PLC Announces Proposed Offerings of Ordinary Shares and Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares

DUBLIN, June 8, 2020 – Aptiv PLC (NYSE: APTV) (the “Company”) today announced that it has commenced concurrent proposed offerings of $1.0 billion of ordinary shares (the “Ordinary Shares Offering”) and $1.0 billion of Series A Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares (the “mandatory convertible preferred shares”) (the “Preferred Shares Offering,” and together with the Ordinary Shares Offering, the “Offerings”). The Company expects to grant the underwriters of the Ordinary Shares Offering, a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $150.0 million of ordinary shares and the underwriters of the Preferred Shares Offering, a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $150.0 million of mandatorily convertible preferred shares, solely to cover over-allotments, if any. Neither the completion of the Ordinary Shares Offering nor the Preferred Shares Offering is contingent upon the completion of the other. The Offerings are both subject to market and other conditions, and there can be no assurance as to whether or when either of the Offerings may be completed, if at all, or as to the actual size or terms of either of the Offerings. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offerings for general corporate purposes, which may include, without limitation and in the Company’s sole discretion, funding potential future investments (including acquisitions), capital expenditures, working capital, repayment of outstanding indebtedness, and satisfaction of other obligations.

Unless earlier converted, each mandatory convertible preferred share will automatically convert into a variable number of shares of the Company’s ordinary shares on or around June 15, 2023. The conversion terms, dividend rate and the other terms of the mandatory convertible preferred shares will be determined at the time of pricing of the Preferred Shares Offering.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Citigroup are acting as joint lead book-running managers for the Offerings. Barclays, BofA Securities, Deutsche Bank Securities and J.P.
