MEXICO CITY, June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Controladora Mabe, S.A. de C.V. (the "Company" or "we") announced today that it has amended certain terms (including the Total Consideration and Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline, as detailed below) of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the "Offer") any and all of its outstanding 5.600% Senior Guaranteed Notes due 2028 (the "Notes") and the related solicitation of consents (the "Consents") from the holders of Notes to certain amendments to the indenture governing the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation").
The Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated June 15, 2022 (the "Statement"), as amended by this press release. Capitalized terms used in this release but not otherwise defined have the meanings given to them in the Statement.
The Company hereby amends the terms of the Offer and Consent Solicitation as follows:
(a) The method of determination of the Total Consideration per Note is changed from the price calculated pursuant to Schedule I to the Statement to a fixed price total consideration of $1,042.50 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered (which includes the Consent Payment of $50.00, which remains unchanged) (the "New Total Consideration"), plus Accrued Interest thereon to the Final Settlement Date.
The following table summarizes the changes to the pricing terms of the Offer:
Rule 144A CUSIP No.: 21240B AD3
Reg S CUSIP No.: P3100S AC8
Rule 144A ISIN: US21240BAD38
Reg S ISIN: USP3100SAC81
Inclusive of Consent Payment.
The amount to be paid for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase, excluding Accrued Interest on the Notes to the Final Settlement Date. Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive Accrued Interest up to, but excluding, the Final Settlement Date.
The Company is changing the method of determination of the original Total Consideration as a result of the volatility of the Reference Security (which is the 2.625% U.S. Treasury Note due May 31, 2027) since the date of commencement of the Offer and the Consent Solicitation. The original Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes was equal to the following (as calculated pursuant to Schedule I to the Statement): (i) the present value on the Initial Settlement Date of (x) $1,000, the principal amount payable on the Notes on the Reference Date, and (y) all scheduled interest payments on the Notes from the Initial Settlement Date up to and including the Reference Date, in each case discounted on the basis of a yield to maturity equal to the sum of (a) the yield to maturity of the Reference Security, based on the bid-side price of the Reference Security at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 29, 2022, as displayed on the Bloomberg Government Pricing Monitor Page FIT1, plus (b) 145 basis points, minus (ii) accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from, and including, the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Initial Settlement Date.
(b) The payment of the New Total Consideration will be made available to all Holders who have validly tendered their Notes and delivered the related Consents as of the date hereof and to all Holders who may validly tender their Notes and deliver the related Consents on or prior to the Offer Expiration Time, which is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 14, 2022, in each case, provided that such Holders do not validly withdraw such Notes and revoke such Consents at or prior to the Extended Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline (as defined below).
(c) The Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline is extended through the Offer Expiration Time. As a result, (i) all references in the Statement to the "Initial Settlement Date" shall be deemed to refer to the "Final Settlement Date", and (ii) all references in the Statement to the "Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline" shall be deemed to refer to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 14, 2022 (the "Extended Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline").
Holders who have validly tendered (and not withdrawn) their Notes on or prior to the original Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline will be able to withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Extended Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline if they no longer wish to participate in the Offer and the Consent Solicitation. Holders who have previously validly tendered (and not withdrawn) their Notes and wish to continue to participate in the Offer and the Consent Solicitation will not be required to re-tender their Notes and re-deliver their Consents to be eligible to receive the New Total Consideration.
Except as described above, the terms of the Offer and the Consent Solicitation remain unchanged, including, without limitation, the Offer Expiration Time and the Final Settlement Date. The terms and conditions of the Offer and the Consent Solicitation are described in the Statement, as amended by this press release.
According to information received from Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the Tender Agent and Information Agent, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 29, 2022 (the original Consent Payment and Withdrawal Deadline), the Company had received valid tenders of Notes for an aggregate principal amount equal to U.S.$328,285,000, representing 88.73% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes as of the date hereof.
Notwithstanding any other provision of the Offer or the Consent Solicitation set forth in the Statement (as amended by this press release), the Company's obligation to accept for purchase, and to purchase, Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Offer (including the Company's obligation to make Consent Payments as part of the New Total Consideration with respect to Consents delivered pursuant to the Consent Solicitation) is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of: (i) the New Debt Condition; and (ii) the General Conditions. See "Conditions to the Offer and the Consent Solicitation" in the Statement.
