Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 4, 2019, Stericycle, Inc. (the “Company”) commenced a private offering to eligible purchasers of $550.0 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”). The Company is disclosing the following information publicly because such information is concurrently being disclosed to certain parties in an offering memorandum relating to the Notes.

As previously indicated when the Company announced earnings on May 2, 2019, the Company’s results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 were negatively impacted by, among other things, a decline in recycled paper prices, the impact of foreign exchange, a slowdown in recall activity in its Communication and Related Services (“CRS”) business and margin pressure in Regulated Waste and Compliance Services. These impacts have continued through April 2019. The Company’s results for the quarters ending June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2019 and full year 2019 will be dependent, in part, on whether these impacts continue throughout the remainder of the year.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events.

On June 4, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the commencement of a private offering of the Notes. In accordance with Rule 135(c) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), a copy of this press release is being filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. Accordingly, this notice is not intended to and does not constitute an offer to sell nor a solicitation for an offer to purchase any securities of the Company.

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.
