Item 8.01Other Events.


As previously reported, PGT Innovations, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“PGTI”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with MIWD Holding Company LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“MITER”), and RMR MergeCo, Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of MITER (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into PGTI (the “Merger”), with PGTI surviving as a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of MITER.


The 30-day waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”), in connection with the Merger expired at 11:59 p.m. on February 22, 2024. The expiration of the HSR Act waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to the closing of the Merger.


The special meeting of PGTI’s stockholder to approve the Merger (the “Special Meeting”) is scheduled for Monday, March 18, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time. PGTI stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 7, 2024, will be eligible to vote at the Special Meeting. Subject to the satisfaction of the remaining conditions to closing to the Merger under the Merger Agreement, if the stockholders vote to approve the Merger at the Special Meeting, it is likely that the Merger would close within a matter of weeks after the Special Meeting.


Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these statements and other forward-looking statements in this document by words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “can,” “could,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “predict,” “project,” “future,” “potential,” “intend,” “plan,” “assume,” “believe,” “forecast,” “look,” “build,” “focus,” “create,” “work,” “continue,” “target,” “poised,” “advance,” “drive,” “aim,” “forecast,” “approach,” “seek,” “schedule,” “position,” “pursue,” “progress,” “budget,” “outlook,” “trend,” “guidance,” “commit,” “on track,” “objective,” “goal,” “strategy,” “opportunity,” “ambitions,” “aspire” and similar expressions, and variations or negative of such terms or other variations thereof. Words and terms of similar substance used in connection with any discussion of future plans, actions, or events identify forward-looking statements.


Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain, such statements regarding the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Transaction”), including the expected time period to consummate the Transaction. All such forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates, expectations and ambitions that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions, many of which are beyond the control of PGTI, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements. Key factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to, the expected timing and likelihood of completion of the Transaction, including the timing, receipt and terms and conditions of any required governmental and regulatory approvals of the Transaction; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the definitive agreement; the possibility that PGTI’s stockholders may not approve the Transaction; the risk that the parties may not be able to satisfy the conditions to the Transaction in a timely manner or at all; risks related to disruption of management time from ongoing business operations due to the Transaction; the risk that any announcements relating to the Transaction could have adverse effects on the market price of PGTI’s common stock; the risk that the Transaction and its announcement could have an adverse effect on the parties’ business relationships and business generally, including the ability of PGTI to retain customers and retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with their suppliers and customers, and on their operating results and businesses generally; the risk of unforeseen or unknown liabilities; customer, stockholder, regulatory and other stakeholder approvals and support; the risk of potential litigation relating to the Transaction that could be instituted against PGTI or its directors and/or officers; the risk associated with third party contracts containing material consent, anti-assignment, transfer or other provisions that may be related to the Transaction which are not waived or otherwise satisfactorily resolved; the risk of rating agency actions and PGTI’s ability to access short- and




long-term debt markets on a timely and affordable basis; the risk of various events that could disrupt operations, including severe weather, such as droughts, floods, avalanches and earthquakes, cybersecurity attacks, security threats and governmental response to them, and technological changes; the risks of labor disputes, changes in labor costs and labor difficulties; and the risks resulting from other effects of industry, market, economic, legal or legislative, political or regulatory conditions outside of PGTI’s control. All such factors are difficult to predict and are beyond our control, including those detailed in PGTI’s annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K that are available on PGTI’s website at https://pgtinnovations.com and on the website of the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) at http://www.sec.gov. PGTI’s forward-looking statements are based on assumptions that PGTI’s believes to be reasonable but that may not prove to be accurate. Other unpredictable or factors not discussed in this communication could also have material adverse effects on forward-looking statements. PGTI does not assume an obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by applicable law. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof.
