Tervita Corporation Announces Intention to Issue Senior Notes and Commencement of Cash Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation for 11% Senior Notes Due 2015

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 18, 2013) - Tervita Corporation announced today that it intends to offer up to US$325 million in aggregate principal amount of U.S.-dollar denominated senior notes due 2018. Tervita intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to fund the offer and solicitation, plus payment of related transaction fees and expenses, and the redemption of any notes not purchased pursuant to the tender offer. Tervita will use the remaining proceeds, if any, for general corporate purposes.

Tervita also announced today that it has commenced a tender offer to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 11.000 per cent senior notes due 2015 and a solicitation of consents for the adoption of certain amendments to the indenture governing the 2015 notes.

Under the terms of the offer, holders of the 2015 notes who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their 2015 notes and thereby validly deliver (and do not revoke) their consents to the proposed amendments prior to the consent deadline of 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 2, 2013, unless extended by Tervita, will receive $1,006.25 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2015 senior notes, which includes, in each case:

  • $976.25 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2015 notes tendered and accepted by Tervita; and,

  • an amount in cash equal to $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2015 notes tendered and accepted by Tervita for purchase in the offer.

In addition to the consideration described above, tendering noteholders will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date on the 2015 notes up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date for the 2015 notes.

The offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 16, 2013, unless the offer is extended.

Tervita intends issue a notice of redemption with respect to any of the 2015 notes that it does not purchase pursuant to the tender offer and to satisfy and discharge the indenture governing the 2015 notes.

CONDITIONS:

Tendered 2015 notes and consents may be withdrawn at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 2, 2013, unless such time is extended by the Tervita. Tenders of the 2015 notes may not be withdrawn after the withdrawal deadline except to the extent required by applicable law. Payment for the 2015 notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the consent expiration and accepted for payment will be made promptly following the consent expiration. Payment for notes validly tendered after the consent expiration and accepted for payment will be made promptly following the expiration date. Holders of 2015 notes that are validly tendered after the consent expiration but prior to the expiration date, and accepted for payment, will receive only the tender offer consideration, but not the consent payment, even if the proposed amendments become operative.

Completion of the offer is conditioned upon completion of a debt offering on terms satisfactory to the company and in an amount sufficient to fund the purchase of the 2015 notes and the payment of the cash consideration offered in the offer. The offer is also subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain other conditions as set forth in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated as of the date hereof referred to below.
