HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) (the "Company") today announced the expiration of its previously announced tender offer and consent solicitation (the "Tender Offer") for any and all of its existing 5.375% senior notes due 2025 (the "Notes"), which commenced on January 19, 2021 and is described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated January 19, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase"), and a related Consent and Letter of Transmittal (together with the Offer to Purchase, the "Offer Documents").
As previously announced, the Company has received tenders from holders of approximately $512.5 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes representing approximately 51.2 % of the $1 billion aggregate principal amount of Notes issued, all of which were tendered on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 1, 2021 and accepted for purchase on February 2, 2021. No additional Notes were tendered after February 1, 2021. As previously announced, the Company also received consents sufficient to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes (as supplemented, the "Indenture"), with the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee, executing the fourth supplemental indenture to the Indenture (the "Fourth Supplemental Indenture") on February 2, 2021. The Fourth Supplemental Indenture eliminated substantially all of the restrictive covenants, certain events of default and related provisions contained in the Indenture and reduced the notice periods required for redemption of the Notes.
The Company expects to redeem the remaining principal amount outstanding of the Notes, which were not tendered in the Tender Offer, on March 15, 2021, at a redemption price equal to 102.688% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes to, but excluding, the redemption date. This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption. The redemption shall be made solely pursuant to the notice of redemption delivered pursuant to the Indenture (as supplemented to date), and the information in this press release is qualified in its entirety by such notice.
