DENVER, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SquareTwo Financial Corporation ("SquareTwo" or the "Company"), a leader in the distressed asset purchasing market in the United States and Canada, today announced the final settlement of its previously announced exchange offer (the "Exchange Offer").
The final settlement of the Exchange Offer closed on August 24, 2016 following the Company's acceptance for purchase of $7,756,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company's 11.625% Senior Second Lien Notes due 2017 (the "2017 Notes").
Holders who exchanged their 2017 Notes in the Exchange Offer received, for each $1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes, $650 principal amount of new term loans with a maturity date in 2019 (the "Term Loans"), including $30 principal amount for holders who delivered consents before the consent payment expiration deadline on May 16, 2016, and $350 initial liquidation preference of a new series of preferred stock. Holders of 2017 Notes who did not provide Term Loan signature pages to the Company or Cortland Capital Markets Services LLC on or before August 19, 2016 were excluded from the final settlement and will continue to hold their 2017 Notes.
Following the final settlement, $23,839,000 aggregate principal amount of 2017 Notes remains outstanding. SquareTwo continues to seek to reduce the outstanding principal amount of the 2017 Notes, and may engage in privately negotiated transactions and other means to acquire 2017 Notes from time to time. Any future transactions may be on the same terms or on terms that are more or less favorable to holders of the 2017 Notes than the terms of the Exchange Offer, as SquareTwo or its affiliates may determine.
SquareTwo's legal advisor in connection with the recapitalization is Hogan Lovells US LLP and its investment banker is Evercore.

The Exchange Offer was made pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") contained in Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act. The Company has not filed, and does not expect to file, a registration statement under the Securities Act or any other federal or state securities laws with respect to the preferred stock.
