December 23, 2019 at 4:15 PM EST

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 23, 2019-- Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (NYSE: SPLP) (the “Company”), a diversified global holding company, today announced that it will redeem 1,600,000 units of its 6.0% Series A Preferred Units, no par value (the “Preferred Units”), currently representing approximately 20.2% of total outstanding Preferred Units, on February 6, 2020 (the “Redemption Date”). The Preferred Units are currently traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SPLP-PRA” (CUSIP 85814R 206). The Company is redeeming the Preferred Units based on its previously-disclosed obligation to repurchase the Preferred Units by the third anniversary of their issuance, February 7, 2020.

The Preferred Units will be redeemed in cash on a pro rata basis for a redemption price equal to $25.00 per unit, plus an amount of $0.22 per unit, equal to any accumulated and unpaid distributions up to, but excluding, the Redemption Date (the “Redemption Price”), for a total payment of approximately $40.4 million (the “Redemption Payment”). On the Redemption Date, unless the Company defaults in making the Redemption Payment, all distributions on the Preferred Units that are to be redeemed will cease to accrue, and all rights of the holders of such units, except the right of the holders to receive payment of the Redemption Price, will terminate without interest.

The Company plans to send a notice of redemption, including information about redemption procedures, to all record holders of the Preferred Units after the record date of January 6, 2020 and at least 30 days before the Redemption Date. Investors who hold their Preferred Units in “street name” should contact the bank or broker through which they hold a beneficial interest in the Preferred Units for information about obtaining the Redemption Price for their Preferred Units.
