Owens Corning and Masonite are making the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation pursuant to the terms of and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement dated April 15, 2024 (as amended to date, the “Statement”), as amended by this news release, which are conditioned upon the consummation of the Arrangement and the satisfaction or waiver of other conditions described in the Statement. As a result, the Expiration Time may be extended one or more times. The settlement date for the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation will be promptly after the Expiration Time.
