Consolidated Energy Finance S.A. (the “Company”) announced today that it has commenced a cash tender offer to purchase (the “Tender Offer”) up to $210,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2022 (the “Notes”).
Information related to the Notes and the Tender Offer is set forth in the table below.
|CUSIP / ISIN||Tender Offer|
|(1)||Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for payment.|
|(2)||Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Deadline (as defined below) and accepted for payment.|
|(3)||Includes the relevant Tender Offer Consideration and Early Tender Payment.|
The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 15, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such time and date, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Expiration Time”). In order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as described below) for tendered Notes, holders must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such time and date, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Early Tender Deadline”).
The Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the offer to purchase (the “Offer to Purchase”) in relation to the Tender Offer that is being sent to holders of the Notes, including (1) the successful drawings of amounts in respect of an incremental term loan provided in accordance with a credit facility agreement entered into, among others, Consolidated Energy AG as the parent guarantor, Consolidated Energy Finance S.A. as a term facility borrower and a revolving facility borrower and Methanol Holdings (Delaware) LLC (“MHTL (Delaware)”) as a term facility borrower (“CEL Facility Agreement”) and/or the revolving credit facility provided in accordance with the CEL Facility Agreement, and (2) certain general conditions, in each case as described in more detail in the Offer to Purchase. If any of the conditions are not satisfied, the Company may terminate the Tender Offer and return tendered Notes, may waive unsatisfied conditions and accept for payment and purchase all validly tendered Notes, may extend the tender offer or may otherwise amend the Tender Offer.
The “Total Consideration” for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be an amount equal to $1,000 payable in cash to holders that validly tender their Notes prior to the Early Tender Deadline, plus accrued and unpaid interest.
The Total Consideration set forth above includes an “Early Tender Payment” of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, payable only to holders that validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Holders of Notes who validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will not receive an Early Tender Payment.
Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline may not be validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline.
The Notes may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Maximum Tender Amount to be exceeded. In the event any tendered Notes are not accepted for purchase due to proration, they will be promptly returned or credited to the Holder’s account.
All Notes purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer will be cancelled.
The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase. Holders are urged to read the Offer to Purchase carefully when they become available.
