LONDON, United Kingdom - March 12, 2018 - Pentair plc (NYSE: PNR) ("Pentair") announced today, in connection with the planned separation of its Electrical business through a spin-off of nVent Electric plc ("nVent"), that nVent Finance S.à r.l ("nVent Finance"), a subsidiary of Pentair that will become a subsidiary of nVent at the time of the completion of the separation, agreed to sell $300 million of 3.950% senior notes due 2023 and $500 million of 4.550% senior notes due 2028 (collectively, the "Notes"). 

The Notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured and unsubordinated basis by nVent and will initially be guaranteed on an unsecured and unsubordinated basis by Pentair and Pentair Investments Switzerland GmbH ("Pentair Investments"), a subsidiary of Pentair. The Pentair and Pentair Investments guarantees of the Notes will terminate upon completion of the separation. The closing of the private offering is expected to occur on March 26, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.  nVent Finance intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of the Notes to make payments to Pentair as partial consideration for the contribution of assets of the Electrical business to nVent Finance by Pentair in connection with the separation, to pay related fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Notes or any other securities, nor will there be any sale of the Notes or any other securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.
