The announcement of Cummins Inc.'s final exchange ratio for its split-off exchange offer is a significant event for both Cummins and its shareholders. The specificity of the exchange ratio at 12.0298 shares of Atmus Filtration Technologies for each share of Cummins indicates a well-structured plan to divest from Atmus. The anticipated acceptance of approximately 5,574,051 shares of Cummins stock for exchange, contingent on full subscription, highlights the scale of the transaction.

Investors should be aware of the proration clause, which could affect the final number of shares exchanged if the offer is oversubscribed. This is a common practice in such transactions to ensure equitable treatment of shareholders. The involvement of reputable financial institutions, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, as dealer managers may instill confidence in the process and could potentially impact Cummins' stock performance in the short-term, as the market reacts to the final terms of the offer.

The strategic decision for a split-off exchange offer by Cummins reflects a move to streamline its business operations and focus on its core competencies. This transaction could signal a shift in Cummins' business strategy that might affect its market position. By divesting Atmus, Cummins could be aiming to unlock value for its shareholders and improve its financial metrics.

From a market perspective, the success of the exchange offer and the subsequent performance of Atmus as an independent entity will be closely watched. The performance of Atmus post-split-off could provide insights into the filtration technology market and Cummins' valuation of this business unit. The long-term impact on Cummins' stock will depend on how the capital freed from this transaction is utilized and whether it leads to improved profitability and growth prospects.

The timing and conditions of the exchange offer, set to expire in March 2024, suggest Cummins is making a calculated move within a specific economic context. The decision to engage in a split-off could be a response to macroeconomic conditions, such as interest rates and corporate tax implications, which could influence the timing and attractiveness of such offers.

Furthermore, the exchange offer may have broader economic implications, potentially affecting employment, investment in research and development and the competitive landscape within the industry. The reallocation of resources as a result of this corporate restructuring could lead to more efficient capital distribution within the company and the market at large, which in turn could influence Cummins' economic footprint and its contribution to industrial sector growth.

COLUMBUS, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) (“Cummins”) announced the final exchange ratio for its previously announced split-off exchange offer to Cummins shareholders to exchange their shares of common stock of Cummins for shares of common stock of Atmus Filtration Technologies Inc. (NYSE: ATMU) (“Atmus”) currently held by Cummins.

For each share of Cummins common stock that is validly tendered and not properly withdrawn by shareholders and that is accepted by Cummins pursuant to the exchange offer, Cummins will deliver 12.0298 shares of Atmus common stock to or at the direction of any such tendering shareholder.

Based on the final exchange ratio, Cummins currently expects to accept for exchange approximately 5,574,051 shares of Cummins common stock if the exchange offer is fully subscribed. Because the exchange offer will be subject to proration if the exchange offer is oversubscribed, the number of shares of Cummins common stock that Cummins accepts in the exchange offer may be less than the number of shares validly tendered by Cummins shareholders.

The exchange offer is currently scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on March 13, 2024, unless terminated or extended.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are the dealer managers for the exchange offer.
