CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: JELD) today announced that Onex Corporation and certain investment funds managed by Onex Partners Manager LP and its affiliates (collectively, the "selling shareholders") intend to offer 10,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock for sale in an underwritten public offering. The shares will be offered from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.
