CHICAGO, May 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company ("RR Donnelley" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RRD) today announced that it has priced an offering of $600 million aggregate principal amount of 7.25% Notes due 2018 (the "notes"). The offering is expected to close on June 1, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.

RR Donnelley intends to use the net proceeds from this offering (1) to fund tender offers for up to $500 million aggregate principal amount of its notes including a tender offer for any and all of its outstanding 2019 Notes based on a market premium to be determined and a partial tender offer for certain of its other notes and debentures based on prices to be determined and (2) to pay premiums in connection with those tender offers. If there are any remaining proceeds, RR Donnelley intends to use those proceeds to repay borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Amounts repaid under RR Donnelley's revolving credit facility may be reborrowed for general corporate purposes, including the repayment or redemption of other indebtedness. The completion of such tender offers will be subject to customary closing conditions.

BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC were the joint book-running managers for the offering.

This announcement does not constitute an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell securities, nor shall there be any sales of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of such jurisdiction. The tender offers will be made solely by means of an Offer to Purchase and a related Letter of Transmittal. In any jurisdiction where the laws require a tender offer to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the tender offers will be deemed to be made on behalf of RR Donnelley by the dealer managers for such tender offers, or one or more registered brokers or dealers under the laws of such jurisdiction.
