AJMAN, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Offshore Services Superholdings, LLC (the "Company") announces today the final results of its previously announced (i) offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") any and all of its outstanding $225 million 9½% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 (the "Notes") and (ii) solicitation of consents ("Consents") from holders of the Notes (each, a "Holder" and collectively, the "Holders") to the Proposed Amendments to the indenture dated February 14, 2013, as supplemented on December 24, 2013 (the "Indenture"), under which the Notes were issued (the "Solicitation", and together with the Tender Offer, the "Offer"). The Offer was made subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement dated September 28, 2015 (the "Statement"). The Offer expired at 9:00 a.m. New York City time, on November 17, 2015 (the "Expiration Date").
As of the Expiration Date, Holders of $220,600,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, representing 98.04% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes, had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn such Notes, and validly delivered and not validly revoked the related Consents in respect of such Notes. The Company has accepted or will accept all such Notes for purchase. Following completion of the Offer, $4,400,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes will remain outstanding.
Each Holder who validly tendered (and did not validly withdraw) its Notes at or prior to the Early Tender and Consent Deadline will receive for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by such Holder (i) an amount in cash equal to US$920 (the "Tender Consideration") and (ii) an amount in cash equal to US$30 (the "Early Tender and Consent Payment"). Holders who validly tendered (and did not validly withdraw) their Notes after the Early Tender and Consent Deadline but on or prior to the Expiration Date will only be entitled to receive the Tender Consideration. In addition to the Tender Consideration and, if applicable, the Early Tender and Consent Payment, Holders who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes in the Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Settlement Date ("Accrued Interest").
As previously announced, the Higher Consent Threshold has been reached to approve the Proposed Amendments to the Indenture, including the Majority Proposed Amendments and the Super Majority Proposed Amendments. As such, the Company executed a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to give effect to the Proposed Amendments on November 17, 2015.
The Settlement Date is expected to be November 17, 2015. The Supplemental Indenture will become operative on the Settlement Date immediately prior to the time of the payment of the Early Tender and Consent Payment and Tender Consideration, as applicable, and Accrued Interest, to Holders whose tendered Notes have been accepted for purchase in the Offer. Following the Settlement Date, the Company intends to cancel the listing of the Notes on the Global Exchange Market of the Irish Stock Exchange.
