Share:

Tender Offer and Early Redemption Expected to be Funded by
Incremental $350 Million Term Loan B Debt Financing Along with Available
Cash or Borrowings under Clean Harbors' Existing Revolving Credit
Facility

Clean Harbors, Inc. ("Clean Harbors" or the "Company") (NYSE:CLH) today
announced that, pursuant to its previously announced tender offer and
consent solicitation (collectively, the "Tender Offer") to purchase any
and all of its outstanding $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of
5.25% senior notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes"), Clean Harbors received
by the early tender payment deadline at 5:00 p.m., New York City time,
on July 2, 2018 (the "Early Tender Date") tenders and consents from the
holders of an aggregate of $321.9 million principal amount, or 80.5%, of
the total outstanding 2020 Notes. The terms of the Tender Offer are
described in the Company's Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation
dated June 19, 2018 (the "Offer to Purchase"). The consents received
exceed the amount needed to approve the proposed amendments described in
the Offer to Purchase to the indenture under which the 2020 Notes were
issued (the "2020 Notes Indenture").

Under the terms of the Tender Offer, holders of 2020 Notes which validly
tendered (and did not validly withdraw) their 2020 Notes on or prior to
the Early Tender Date will receive $1,003.05 per $1,000.00 in principal
amount of 2020 Notes accepted for purchase (the "Total Consideration"),
plus accrued but unpaid interest up to, but not including, the payment
date. The Total Consideration includes an early tender payment of $50.00
per $1,000.00 in principal amount of 2020 Notes (the "Early Tender
Payment"). Clean Harbors now anticipates making payment on July 19, 2018
for all of the 2020 Notes which were validly tendered (and not validly
withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Tender Date.

Holders which validly tender after the Early Tender Date but prior to
the expiration of the Tender Offer at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on
July 17, 2018 (the "Expiration Date"), unless the Tender Offer is
extended or earlier terminated, will receive $953.05 per $1,000.00 in
principal amount of 2020 Notes accepted for purchase, plus accrued but
unpaid interest up to, but not including, the payment date. Such payment
will represent the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Payment.

Clean Harbors will not be required to purchase any of the 2020 Notes
tendered unless certain conditions are satisfied, including the receipt
of proceeds of an incremental Term Loan B debt financing on terms
satisfactory to the Company in an amount that, together with available
cash and, to the extent Clean Harbors so elects, borrowings under the
Company's existing revolving credit facility, will be sufficient to
purchase all $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of outstanding 2020
Notes and pay any premium, accrued and unpaid interest and fees and
expenses in connection therewith.

Based on the consents received by the Early Tender Date, Clean Harbors
and the trustee under the 2020 Notes Indenture are expected to enter
into a supplemental indenture that will, once operative, eliminate
substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of
default and reduce the required notice period contained in the optional
redemption provisions of the 2020 Notes Indenture from at least 30 days
prior to the date of redemption to at least three days prior to the date
of redemption. The supplemental indenture is expected to become
operative upon payment for the 2020 Notes tendered by the Early Tender
Date as described above. Clean Harbors intends to redeem any 2020 Notes
that remain outstanding after the consummation of the Tender Offer.
Under the 2020 Notes Indenture, as amended by the supplemental
indenture, such 2020 Notes may be redeemed on or after August 1, 2018 at
a redemption price of $1,000.00 per $1,000.00 principal amount of 2020
Notes, plus accrued but unpaid interest up to, but not including, the
redemption date. However, there is no assurance that any such redemption
will occur.

relating to the Tender Offer may be directed to Global Bondholder
Services Corp., the Information Agent, at (866) 794-2200 (toll free) or

the Tender Offer. Questions regarding the Tender Offer may be directed
to Goldman, Sachs & Co. LLC at (800) 828-3182 (toll free) or (212)
357-1452.

This press release is not an offer to purchase or solicitation of
consents with respect to the 2020 Notes. The Tender Offer is only being
made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of
Transmittal and Consent.
