LUXEMBOURG, Feb. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Votorantim Cimentos International S.A. ("VCI"), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Votorantim Cimentos S.A. ("VCSA"), today announced (i) the final results and expiration of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (collectively, the "Tender Offers") of its outstanding 7.250% Senior Notes due 2041 (the "2041 Notes"), 3.500% Notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") and 3.250% Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes" and, together with the 2041 Notes and the 2022 Notes, the "Notes") and (ii) the termination of its previously announced offer to exchange (the "Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer") up to U.S.$500 million aggregate principal amount of the 2041 Notes for newly issued 7.250% Senior Notes due 2041 (the "New St. Marys Notes") of St. Marys Cement Inc. (Canada), which were offered on the terms and conditions set forth in the exchange offer and consent solicitation statement, dated January 10, 2019 (the "Exchange Offer Memorandum"), and the related consent solicitation for the 2041 Notes (the "2041 Consent Solicitation").
As set forth in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated January 10, 2019 (as amended by the terms set forth in a press release issued on January 25, 2019, the "Offer to Purchase"), and the Exchange Offer Memorandum, the Tenders Offers, the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer and the 2041 Consent Solicitation expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2019 (the "Expiration Deadline").
According to information received by D.F. King, as of the Expiration Deadline, (i) holders of the 2041 Notes had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn (including any tender elections made pursuant to the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer) $540,281,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2041 Notes (representing approximately 47.0% of the outstanding 2041 Notes), (ii) holders of the 2022 Notes had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn €151,475,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Notes (representing approximately 43.7% of the outstanding 2022 Notes), and (iii) holders of the 2021 Notes had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn €60,688,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes (representing approximately 28.3% of the outstanding 2021 Notes).
Holders who validly tendered (and did not validly withdraw) Notes in the Tenders Offers on or prior to the Expiration Deadline will receive the Total Tender Consideration (as defined below), with respect to such series of Notes. Accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date of such series of Notes up to but excluding the settlement date will also be paid in cash on the settlement date, which is currently anticipated to be February 14, 2019.
In connection with the Tender Offers, VCI has waived the Exchange Offer Condition (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) and intends to accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the Tender Offers (including any tender elections made pursuant to the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer) as of the Expiration Deadline. As of the Expiration Deadline, the Minimum Issuance Condition (as defined in the Exchange Offer Memorandum) was not satisfied and therefor the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer and the 2041 Consent Solicitation were terminated in accordance with their terms. As a result, no New St. Marys Notes will be issued in connection with the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer and a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the 2041 Notes will not be executed and the proposed amendments to the 2041 Notes will not be made. All 2041 Notes that have been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) under the "exchange only" option (and not having made a tender election) in the Concurrent 2041 Notes Exchange Offer will be returned promptly to the respective holders thereof without any action required on the part of the holders. Any 2041 Notes not tendered and purchased pursuant to the relevant Tender Offer will remain outstanding and will be governed by the terms of the indenture governing the 2041 Notes.
