AJMAN, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Offshore Services Superholdings, LLC (the "Company") announces today the further extension 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 is 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, which was previously scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time on November 9, 2015, has been extended to expire at 9:00 a.m. New York City time on November 17, 2015, unless further extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the "Expiration Date"). If the conditions precedent in connection with the Financing Condition are satisfied on or prior to the Expiration Date, the Company may decide that the Settlement Date will be November 17, 2015 for Holders who have validly tendered their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on November 16, 2015, and that the Settlement Date will be promptly after the Expiration Date for any Holders who have validly tendered their Notes after 5:00 p.m. New York City time on November 16, 2015 but prior to the Expiration Date.
As of 5:00 p.m. New York City time on November 9, 2015, Holders of approximately $220,600,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, representing approximately 98% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes, had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn such Notes, and validly delivered and not validly revoked the related Consents in respect of such Notes. As previously reported, 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. The time at or prior to which Notes previously tendered could be validly withdrawn occurred at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 9, 2015 (the "Withdrawal Time"). Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Time may not be withdrawn (except in certain limited circumstances in which additional withdrawal rights are required by law).
Except as set forth herein, the terms and conditions of the Offer remain unchanged. As of November 9, 2015, certain conditions to the Offer, including the Financing Condition, had not been satisfied. The Company will not accept for purchase, and pay for, Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn if the conditions described in the Statement are not satisfied or waived. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to waive or modify in whole or in part the conditions of the Offer. In addition, subject to applicable law and as provided in the Statement, the Company may, in its sole discretion, extend, re-open, amend and/or terminate the Offer at any time.
Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this announcement shall have their meanings given to them in the Statement.
The Tender Offer and Solicitation are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Statement, including the Financing Condition, the Second Supplemental Indenture Condition, and the General Conditions. To the extent it is legally permitted to do so, the Company expressly reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, at any time (i) to waive any condition to the Offer, (ii) to extend, re-open and/or terminate the Offer or (iii) to amend any of the terms of the Offer, including, without limitation, modifying the Early Tender and Consent Payment or the Tender Consideration.
Goldman Sachs International is acting as the "Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent" for the Offer. In connection with the Tender Offer and Solicitation, Global Bondholder Services Corporation has been appointed as tender agent and as information agent (in such capacities, the "Information and Tender Agent"). Any questions regarding the terms of the Offer may be directed to the Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent. Requests for additional copies of documentation related to the Offer, requests for copies of the Indenture and any questions or requests for assistance in tendering may be directed to the Information and Tender Agent.
Any further extension of the Offer or termination of the Offer shall be effected by the Company delivering a notice to that effect to DTC for communication to entitled account holdings by no later than 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the next business day following the previously scheduled Expiration Date.
None of the Company, the Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent, the Information and Tender Agent, the Trustee or any of their affiliates is making any recommendations to the Holders as to whether Holders should tender their Notes and deliver their Consents or refrain from doing so pursuant to the Offer. Each Holder must make its own decision as to whether it should tender Notes and deliver Consents (and if tendering, the amount of Notes to tender).
Beneficial owners whose Notes are held through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee must contact such broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee if they intend to tender Notes. Beneficial owners should be aware that their broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee may establish its own earlier deadline for participation in the Offer. Accordingly, beneficial owners intending to participate in the Offer should contact their broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee as soon as possible in order to determine the time by which such owner must take action in order to so participate.
