Ingersoll-Rand plc (NYSE:IR) (the “Company,” “we” and “our”) today announced that it expects its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, Ingersoll-Rand Luxembourg Finance S.A. (“IR Lux”), to offer, subject to market and other conditions, senior notes (the “Notes”) in a registered public offering. We expect that the offering will consist of three tranches with varying maturities.

We expect that the notes will be issued by IR Lux and guaranteed by the Company and by Ingersoll-Rand Company Limited, Ingersoll-Rand International Holding Limited, Ingersoll-Rand Company and Ingersoll-Rand Global Holding Company Limited, each of which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

We intend to use all or a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to (i) fund the redemption of our 5.50% senior notes due 2015 and our 4.75% senior notes due 2015 and (ii) fund our previously announced acquisition of Cameron International Corporation’s Centrifugal Compression division (the “Acquisition”), with allocation of net proceeds between (i) and (ii) to be dependent on the timing of the Acquisition. We expect to use any remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes.
