MEXICO CITY, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CRÉDITO REAL, S.A.B. DE C.V., Sociedad Financiera de Objeto Múltiple, Entidad Regulada (the "Company") announced today the final results of the previously announced cash tender offer and consent solicitation (the "Tender Offer"), for any and all of its outstanding 7.500% Senior Notes due 2019 (CUSIP/ISIN No. 22547AAC5/P32506AC4 and US22547AAC53/USP32506AC43) (the "Notes"). The Tender Offer expired on August 2, 2016 at 12:00 midnight, New York City time (the "Expiration Time"). The Company further announced that as of the Expiration Time, the Company had received tenders and consents (not validly withdrawn) from the holders of approximately US$290.1 million, or 68.27% of the total outstanding principal amount of the Notes, including US$288.3 million principal amount of the Notes that were tendered and not validly withdrawn as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time on July 19, 2016 (the "Early Tender Deadline").
The Company plans to accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated July 6, 2016 (the "Offer to Purchase"). As previously announced, holders of Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline received on July 20, 2016 (the "Early Payment Date"), an amount equal to US$1,057.50 for every US$1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered at or before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted in the Tender Offer, which consists of an amount equal to US$1,027.50 (the "Tender Offer Consideration") plus an amount equal to US$30 for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the Early Payment Date. In addition, as of the Early Tender Deadline, the Company had obtained sufficient consents to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture under which the Notes were issued (the "Indenture"). As a result, the Company entered into a supplemental indenture dated as of the Early Payment Date to, among other things, eliminate the Company's obligation to comply with substantially all of the covenants contained in the Indenture, remove certain events of default and shorten the minimum notice period to holders required for a redemption from thirty days to six business days prior to the redemption date, with an additional minimum notice of three business days to the Trustee.
Holders of Notes who validly tendered their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Time will receive only the Tender Offer Consideration of US$1,027.50 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the purchase date therefor.
Payment for all Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Time will be made promptly after the Expiration Time, and is expected to be made on August 3, 2016.
The Company's obligations to accept any Notes tendered and not withdrawn and to pay the consideration for them are set forth solely in the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal and Consent (collectively, the "Offer Documents"). The Tender Offer is made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Offer Documents, and the information in this news release is qualified by reference to the Offer Documents.
