NEW YORK, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cosan S.A. Industria e Comercio (the "Company" or "Cosan") today confirmed the Friday April 29, 2011 Expiration Date of its previously-announced Consent Solicitation to amend certain provisions of the indenture governing its 8.25% Perpetual Notes issued in 2006 (the "Notes"). Record Holders as of April 4, 2011 who consent before this time will be eligible to receive a consent payment of $2.50 per $1,000 of aggregate principal in respect of which they deliver (and do not subsequently validly withdraw) their consents.
Additionally, on April 14, 2011 the Company delivered an irrevocable notice to the trustee to call the 8.25% Perpetual Notes in their entirety on May 15, 2011. The irrevocable calling of the notes will have no effect on the terms of the Consent Solicitation. The Solicitation will remain open until its Expiration Date and the Notes will be called on May 15, 2011.
If valid consents from holders representing a majority of the 8.25% Perpetual Notes are received by the Company prior to 5:00pm New York City time on April 29th, 2011, then validly consenting Holders will be paid $2.50 per $1,000 of principal amount. Holders of the Notes are strongly encouraged to contact their bank, broker, or custodian immediately in order to provide consents prior to the Expiration Date. Regardless of whether an individual holder participates in the Consent Solicitation and irrespective of the success of the Consent Solicitation as a whole, the Notes will be called in their entirety on May 15, 2011.
Holders who do not provide their consent prior to the Expiration Date, or who validly revoke their consent, will not receive the Consent Fee.
Details of the Solicitation are contained in Cosan's Solicitation Statement, dated April 5, 2011 and the related Letter of Consent.
