SAO PAULO, May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fibria Overseas Finance Ltd. (the "Offeror"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fibria Celulose S.A. ("Fibria"), today announced the final results of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") with respect to any and all of its outstanding 6.750% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes") and related consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation"). The Notes are unconditionally guaranteed by Fibria. The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation expired at 12:00 Midnight, New York Time, on May 8, 2014 (the "Expiration Date").
The Offeror has been advised that as of the Expiration Date, US$430,394,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, or approximately 78.45% of the Notes outstanding, had been validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer and consents delivered pursuant to the related Consent Solicitation.
Holders of Notes who have validly tendered their Notes and delivered the related consents at or prior to the Expiration Date are eligible to receive the consideration described in the Offer to Purchase (as defined below), which includes a consent payment, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the settlement date for the Notes (the "Settlement Date"). The Settlement Date is expected to occur on or about May 12, 2014.
Settlement of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation is conditioned on the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including consummation of a financing condition on terms and conditions acceptable to the Offeror. On May 7, 2014, the Offeror priced its offering (the "New Notes Offering") of US$600,000,000 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes due 2024 (the "New Notes"). Subject to satisfaction of customary conditions, the New Notes Offering is currently expected to close on the Settlement Date.
On May 9, 2014, the Offeror executed a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the indenture governing the Notes (the "Indenture") with respect to the proposed amendments to the Indenture (the "Proposed Amendments"), which eliminates substantially all of the restrictive covenants, as well as various events of default and related provisions contained in the Indenture. Adoption of the Proposed Amendments required consents from holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes outstanding (excluding any Notes held by the Offeror, Fibria or their affiliates), which has been obtained. Any Notes not tendered and purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer will remain outstanding and will be governed by the terms of the Indenture, as amended by the Supplemental Indenture.
The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation, as well as the Proposed Amendments, are described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated May 1, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase"), previously distributed to holders of the Notes. Copies of the Offer to Purchase are available to holders of Notes from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the information agent for the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation (the "Information Agent"). Requests for copies of the Offer to Purchase should be directed to the Information Agent in New York at (888) 644-6071 (U.S. toll free) or (212) 493-6940 (collect); in London at +44 (20) 7920-9700 (collect); or at email@example.com.
