Terex Corp. completed the previously announced redemption of the approximately $300 million principal amount outstanding of its 10 7/8-percent senior notes due 2016, effective Sept. 28. The total cash paid was $347.3 million, and included a make-whole call premium as set forth in the indenture of 12.27 percent plus accrued and unpaid interest of $35.34 per $1,000 principal amount at the redemption date.
