HOUSTON, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NCI Building Systems, Inc. (NYSE: NCS) ("NCI" or the "Company") today announced the pricing of the previously announced underwritten offering of 8,500,000 shares of its common stock by investment funds associated with Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, LLC ("CD&R") at $18.00 per share. The underwriters of the offering have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to 1,275,000 additional shares from CD&R. CD&R will receive all of the proceeds from the underwritten offering; no shares in the underwritten offering are being sold by NCI or any of its officers or directors.
In addition, as previously announced, on January 6, 2014 NCI entered into a separate agreement with CD&R, subject to the completion of the underwritten offering, pursuant to which NCI intends to repurchase 1,150,000 shares of its common stock at the price per share equal to the price per share to be paid by the underwriters to CD&R in the underwritten offering. The repurchase agreement between NCI and CD&R represents a private, non-underwritten transaction that was approved and recommended by the Affiliate Transactions Committee of NCI's board of directors. Following completion of the underwritten offering and the concurrent stock repurchase, NCI intends to cancel the shares repurchased from CD&R. The closing of the concurrent stock repurchase is contingent on the closing of the underwritten offering and subject to other conditions, and the stock repurchase is expected to close concurrently with the closing of the underwritten offering. The closing of the underwritten offering is not contingent on the closing of the concurrent stock repurchase.

Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...
