NCR Announces U.S. Pension De-risking Transaction

By The Associated Press

DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 3, 2017--NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) announced today that, in accordance with the selection made by the fiduciary of its U.S. qualified pension plan (the “Plan”), the Company has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with Principal Life Insurance Company, a Principal® company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Plan purchased a single premium group annuity contract from Principal Life Insurance Company in order to secure approximately $190 million of benefits for approximately 6,000 former employees or their related beneficiaries whose monthly pension benefit amount under the Plan as of January 1, 2017 was $500 or less.

“This group annuity contract purchase is consistent with our overall strategy to address our legacy pension liabilities,” said John Boudreau, NCR Treasurer. “Because this contract was purchased with existing Plan assets, no additional funding of the Plan was required for this purchase.” Any impact of this purchase on NCR’s financial statements will be included in the year-end 2017 mark-to-market adjustment. NCR anticipates that the single premium group annuity contract will be issued by Principal Life Insurance Company in 2018.

No action is required by affected former employees or their related beneficiaries at this time. In December 2017, additional details will be provided in letters and other materials that will be sent to affected former employees or their related beneficiaries. These materials will include instructions on how to secure these benefits.

The amount of the future monthly benefit payment for each of these individuals under this group annuity contract will equal the amount of such individual’s monthly benefit payable under the terms of the Plan. Additionally, this group annuity contract provides the same rights to future payments, such as survivor benefits, that are currently provided under the terms of the Plan. No action is required by affected former employees or their related beneficiaries at this time in order to receive such benefits. The December 2017 letters will contain further information.

This group annuity contract has no bearing on active employees, former employees or their related beneficiaries who have not commenced monthly benefits under the Plan as of January 1, 2017, or former employees or their related beneficiaries whose monthly benefit amount under the Plan as of January 1, 2017 exceeded $500.

Participants may also access Plan information through the NCR Benefits Service Center website at www.netbenefits.com/ncr or by telephone at 1-800-245-9035.
