ATLANTA, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Cooper Enterprises, Inc. (the "Company") announced today that it has extended its unregistered offer to exchange (the "Exchange Offer") up to $80,450,000 of its 10.50%/11.25% Senior PIK Toggle Notes due 2019 (the "Existing Notes") for (i) cash and (ii) warrants to purchase shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Class B Common Stock"), that are each exercisable into one share of Class B Common Stock (the "Exchange Warrants"). As a result of the extension, the Exchange Offer is now scheduled to expire at 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on December 8, 2016, unless further extended by the Company (the "Expiration Time").
The Exchange Offer was previously scheduled to expire at 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on December 1, 2016, unless extended. As of the close of business on November 29, 2016, approximately $9.83 million in principal amount of the Existing Notes have been validly tendered and not withdrawn. Except for the Expiration Time, all other terms of the Exchange Offer remain unchanged.
The Company is extending the Exchange Offer to provide additional time to discuss the terms of the Exchange Offer with the holders of the Existing Notes. In addition, during the extension period, the Company and Jack Cooper Holdings Corp. ("JCHC"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, intend to discuss a range of potential deleveraging transactions with an ad hoc group of holders of JCHC's outstanding 9.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 (the "JCHC Notes") that have represented to the Company that they hold approximately 82% of the JCHC Notes as well as a portion of the Existing Notes. The Company and JCHC's proposals for additional deleveraging transactions could include a variety of transaction structures, including exchange offers involving the JCHC Notes for some combination of new JCHC notes, convertible preferred equity of JCHC, equity or other securities of the Company or other consideration. The Company and JCHC expect to continue to pursue these and other alternatives to reduce outstanding indebtedness. There can be no assurance that any of the Company or JCHC's proposals for additional deleveraging transactions will be accepted by the ad hoc group or result in any additional exchange offers or other transactions involving the JCHC Notes or the Existing Notes. Additionally, there can be no assurance that the Company or JCHC will be able to incur additional debt or refinance existing debt as it becomes due.
The Company reserves the right, subject to applicable law, in its sole discretion, to waive or further amend any of the conditions of the Exchange Offer, subject to certain exceptions, at any time and from time to time, as described in the confidential offering memorandum, dated November 1, 2016 (the "Offering Memorandum"). The Company also reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to terminate, withdraw, amend or extend the Exchange Offer at any time and from time to time, as described in the Offering Memorandum.
The Exchange Warrants have not been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state or foreign securities laws. The Exchange Warrants may not be offered or sold except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act. Only persons who certify that they are "qualified institutional buyers" within the meaning of Rule 144A under the Securities Act are authorized to receive and review the Offering Memorandum (such persons, "Eligible Holders").
