Performance Sports Group Ltd., a leading developer and manufacturer of high performance sports equipment and apparel, announced the pricing of its underwritten public offering in the United States and Canada (the "Offering") of 7,096,775 common shares at a price to the public of US$15.50 per share, for total gross proceeds of approximately US$110 million. 
 
In connection with the Offering, the Company has granted an over-allotment option to the underwriters to purchase up to an additional 1,064,516 common shares, exercisable for a period of 30 days following closing. The Offering is expected to close on or about June 25, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. Trading of the Company's common shares is expected to commence on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") on June 20, 2014. The common shares will then be dual listed on the NYSE and the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") under the symbol "PSG."
 
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to reduce leverage and repay a portion of the Company's term loan facility which was used to finance its recent acquisition of Easton Baseball/Softball.
 
The Offering is being made through a syndicate of underwriters led by Morgan Stanley, BofA Merrill Lynch and RBC Capital Markets, who are acting as joint book-running managers.
 
On June 17, 2014, as previously announced, the Company changed its name from "Bauer Performance Sports Ltd." to "Performance Sports Group Ltd." to better reflect the growth of the Company with its recent strategic acquisitions and expansion into new high performance sports. The Company's brands, including BAUER, MISSION, MAVERIK, CASCADE, INARIA, COMBAT and EASTON, continue to be consumer-facing brands in their respective sports.
 
The Company's Registration Statement has become effective under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and the Company has obtained a receipt from securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada for its final short form base PREP prospectus. The Company will file a supplemented prospectus with pricing information. The TSX has conditionally approved the listing of the Company's common shares sold under the Offering, subject to customary listing conditions, and the NYSE has authorized for listing the Company's common shares sold under the Offering and its outstanding common shares.
