VERONA, N.Y., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Turning Stone Resort Casino, LLC (the "Company" or "TSRC") today announced that it has commenced a cash tender offer for any and all of its outstanding 9-1/8% Senior Notes due 2014 (CUSIP No. 90041N AA 9) (the "Notes"). The tender offer is scheduled to expire at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 8, 2011, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company. In connection with the cash tender offer, the Company is also soliciting consents from the holders of the Notes to amend the indenture under which the Notes were issued to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default contained in the indenture under which the Notes were issued (the "Indenture"). Holders may not tender their Notes without delivering consents or deliver consents without tendering their Notes.
Holders who validly tender their Notes and provide their consents to the amendments to the indenture governing the Notes on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2011, unless extended by the Company in its sole discretion (the "Consent Payment Deadline") will receive the Total Consideration. Under the terms of the tender offer and consent solicitation, the "Total Consideration" for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted in the tender offer will be $1,048.13. The Company will also pay accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the payment date. The Total Consideration includes a consent payment of $20.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes and is only payable to holders who tender their Notes and deliver their consents on or prior to the Consent Payment Deadline. Holders who tender their Notes after the Consent Payment Deadline and prior to the expiration of the tender offer will not be paid the Total Consideration but will only be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration of $1,028.13 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.
Prior to the expiration of the tender offer and consent solicitation, upon satisfaction or waiver of any or all of the conditions to the tender offer, the Company may, at its option, accept and pay for Notes tendered. The Company currently expects that, unless it extends the Consent Payment Deadline in its sole discretion, it will accept the Notes validly tendered on or prior to the Consent Payment Deadline on or about May 23, 2011 and pay for such Notes on or about May 24, 2011. Subject to limited conditions, all Notes validly tendered after the Company's initial acceptance of tendered Notes for purchase will be accepted and paid for promptly following the expiration date of the tender offer. Holders will be paid accrued and unpaid interest up to but not including the applicable date of payment.
Tendered Notes may not be withdrawn and consents may not be revoked after the earlier of (i) the time the Company and the trustee under the Indenture execute a supplemental indenture to effect the proposed amendments (the "Supplemental Indenture"), or (ii) 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2011 (the "Withdrawal Time"). Any extension, delay, termination or amendment of the tender offer and consent solicitation will be followed as promptly as practicable by a public announcement.
The Company is entitled pursuant to the Indenture to redeem any and all Notes that are not tendered and purchased pursuant to the tender offer and currently intends to issue a notice of redemption in respect of all Notes that remain outstanding following the initial payment date for tendered Notes.
The Company's obligation to consummate the tender offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, including (i) holders of Notes representing not less than a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes having tendered their Notes and delivered their consents, (ii) execution of the Supplemental Indenture, (iii) receipt by the Company of net proceeds and, as applicable, revolving credit commitments from one or more new debt financings in an aggregate amount of no less than $290,000,000 on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Company, and (iv) certain other customary conditions. Full details of the terms and conditions of the tender offer are included in the Company's Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated May 10, 2011.
