Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Termination of a Material Definitive Agr


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 28, 2014, Rexnord Corporation (the "Company") entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") by and among the Company, certain funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, LLC (collectively with its subsidiaries, "Apollo"), Goldman, Sachs & Co., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and each of the other Underwriters named in Schedule A thereto (collectively, the "Underwriters"), for the sale of 15,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company ("Common Stock") by Apollo. The offering was made under the Company's registration statement on Form S-3ASR (File No. 333-193610) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Registration Statement"). In addition, the Underwriters had an option to purchase up to an additional 2,250,000 shares of Common Stock from Apollo on the same terms for 30 days from the date of the prospectus supplement to the prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, which option was exercised on June 2, 2014. The offering closed on June 3, 2014. Pursuant to the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company and Apollo have agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make because of any of those liabilities.

The Company did not sell any shares in the offering and did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock by Apollo.

The Underwriters and their respective affiliates are full service financial institutions engaged in various activities, which may include securities trading, commercial and investment banking, financial advisory, investment management, investment research, principal investment, hedging, financing and brokerage activities. Certain of the Underwriters and their respective affiliates have, from time to time, performed, and may in the future perform, various financial advisory and investment banking services for the Company, for which they received or will receive customary fees and expenses. Certain of the Underwriters and/or their affiliates may have an indirect ownership interest in the Company through various private equity funds, including funds of Apollo and/or its affiliates. Certain of the Underwriters or their affiliates are lenders under the Company's credit agreement.

In the ordinary course of their various business activities, the Underwriters and their respective affiliates may make or hold a broad array of investments and actively trade debt and equity securities (or related derivative securities) and financial instruments (including bank loans) for their own account and for the accounts of their customers, and such investment and securities activities may involve securities and/or instruments of the Company. The Underwriters and their respective affiliates may also make investment recommendations and/or publish or express independent research views in respect of such securities or instruments and may at any time hold, or recommend to clients that they acquire, long and/or short positions in such securities and instruments.

The summary set forth above is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and incorporated by reference.



Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

The Company and Apollo Management VI, L.P, an affiliate of Apollo, were parties to a Nominating Agreement, dated April 3, 2012 (the "Nominating Agreement"). The Nominating Agreement granted Apollo, among other things, the right to designate a certain number of directors to the Company's board of directors and approval rights over certain important matters.

On June 3, 2014, upon the closing of the offering of the Common Stock described in Item 1.01 above, Apollo no longer beneficially owns at least 33 1/3% of the Common Stock and, therefore, the Nominating Agreement automatically terminated according to its terms.
