Oct 23, 2012, 16:05 ET from CVR Energy, Inc.

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) announced today that the consent deadline (the "Consent Expiration") under the previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Coffeyville Resources, LLC ("CRLLC"), to purchase for cash any and all of CRLLC's outstanding 9% first lien senior secured notes due 2015 (the "Notes") and related consent solicitation to eliminate most of the covenants, certain events of default applicable to the Notes and certain other provisions contained in the Indenture (the "Solicitation" and, together with the Tender Offer, the "Offer") has expired.


Additionally, today CRLLC accepted for payment, and paid for, all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Consent Expiration, comprising $322,970,000 in aggregate principal amount (representing approximately 72.24%) of outstanding Notes. Pursuant to the Solicitation, CRLLC received consents from greater than a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes (determined as provided for in the indenture governing the Notes) to amend, and has executed a supplemental indenture to, the indenture governing the Notes. After the purchase by CRLLC of all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Consent Expiration, $124,080,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes remains outstanding.

Holders who validly tender Notes after the Consent Expiration and prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 5, 2012, unless extended or earlier terminated by CRLLC in its sole discretion (the "Expiration Time"), will not receive the consent payment, but will be eligible to receive $1,042 per $1,000 of Notes tendered as the tender offer consideration on the final settlement date, which will occur promptly following the Expiration Time and is expected to be November 6, 2012.  Accrued interest up to, but not including, the applicable payment date of the Notes will be paid in cash on all validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted Notes. CRLLC will fund the purchase of the Notes tendered from proceeds received in a new financing transaction.

CRLLC also announced that it will redeem for cash, on November 23, 2012 (the "Redemption Date"), all Notes that remain outstanding after completion of the Tender Offer, at a redemption price of $1,067.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the Redemption Date.  An official notice of redemption is being distributed to holders of the Notes beginning today.

The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and the Solicitation are set forth in CRLLC's Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated October 9, 2012 (the "Offer to Purchase") that was sent to holders of the Notes.  Holders are urged to read the Offer to Purchase and related documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer and Solicitation. Holders of Notes must make their own decisions as to whether to tender their Notes and provide the related Consents, and if they decide to do so, the principal amount of the Notes to tender.
