MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 14, 2019--

Rexnord Corporation (NYSE:RXN) announced today the conversion ratio for the Company’s 5.75% Series A Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”) and related depositary shares, each representing a 1/20th interest in a share of Preferred Stock. Each share of Preferred Stock will automatically convert into 39.7020 shares of the Company’s common stock (which corresponds to 1.9851 shares of common stock per depositary share) on November 15, 2019. Cash will be paid in lieu of any fractional shares.

The conversion rate is based upon the volume-weighted average price per share of the Company’s common stock over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on, and including, October 15, 2019 and ending on November 12, 2019. No action by holders of the depositary shares is required in connection with the conversion.
