June 20, 2016

NEW YORK, June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA) ("Voya" or the "Company") announced today the early results of its previously announced cash tender offer for up to $800,000,000 of combined aggregate purchase price (exclusive of accrued interest) (the "Tender Cap") across five series of notes and debentures of Voya and one of its subsidiaries, Voya Holdings Inc. ("Voya Holdings"), listed in the table below (the "Securities").  The complete terms of the tender offer are set forth in the offer to purchase and the related letter of transmittal, each dated June 6, 2016.  The early participation date for the tender offer was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2016 (such date and time, the "Early Participation Date").  Withdrawal rights for the tender offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2016, and have not been extended. 

The tender offer is oversubscribed. The principal amounts of the Securities that were validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Participation Date and the principal amounts of the Securities that will be accepted for purchase by Voya on the Early Settlement Date (as defined below) are specified in the table below.

Voya also announced its election, with respect to the Securities validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Participation Date, to accept for purchase and make payment up to the Tender Cap for such Securities on June 20, 2016 (the "Early Settlement Date"), and because the amount of Securities validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Participation Date results in a combined aggregate purchase price that exceeds the Tender Cap, the amount of Securities to be purchased on the Early Settlement Date will be determined in accordance with the acceptance priority levels set forth in the table above and the proration procedures described in the offer to purchase. Securities that are accepted in the tender offer will be purchased, retired and cancelled by Voya or Voya Holdings, as applicable.  

The expiration date for this tender offer is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 1, 2016; however, because the amount of Securities validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Participation Date results in a combined aggregate purchase price that exceeds the Tender Cap, Voya does not expect to accept for purchase any additional Securities validly tendered after the Early Participation Date. Securities tendered in the tender offer that have not been accepted for purchase due to the Tender Cap and proration, if any, will be returned promptly to the tendering holders.

Completion of the tender offer is subject to a number of conditions, including the absence of any adverse legal and market developments.  Subject to applicable law, Voya may waive certain of these conditions or extend, terminate or otherwise amend the tender offer.  The financing condition described in the offer to purchase was satisfied on June 13, 2016 upon Voya's completion of a new debt offering in an aggregate principal amount of $800 million.

This press release is qualified in its entirety by the offer to purchase and related letter of transmittal.

Voya has retained Barclays Capital Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. as the Dealer Managers.  D. F. King & Co., Inc. is the Information Agent and Tender Agent.  For additional information regarding the terms of the tender offer, please contact: Barclays Capital Inc. at (800) 438-3242 (toll-free) or (212) 528-7581 (collect); Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC at (800) 820-1653 (toll-free) or (212) 538-2147 (collect); or Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. at (866) 627-0391 (toll-free) or (212) 250-2955 (collect).  Requests for documents and questions regarding the tendering of Securities may be directed to D.
