TORONTO, April 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Livingston International Inc. ("Livingston") announced today the pricing terms of its previously announced tender offer and consent solicitation for its $135,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 10.125% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2015 (the "Notes"), as described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated March 5, 2013 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related Consent and Letter of Transmittal (collectively, the "Offer Documents").
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the tender offer, Livingston currently expects to accept for purchase and make payment to Computershare Investor Services Inc., the depositary for the tender offer, for Notes validly tendered prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time), April 17, 2013 (the "Expiration Time") in accordance with the Offer Documents, on April 18, 2013 (the "Payment Date").
Based on the currently expected Payment Date, holders who validly tendered their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time), March 19, 2013 (the "Early Participation Time") will receive $1,097.96 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (the "Total Consideration") when such Notes are purchased by Livingston. The Total Consideration includes a consent payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (the "Consent Payment").
Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Participation Time but prior to the Expiration Time, unless extended, will receive $1,067.96 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (the "Offer Consideration") when such Notes are purchased by Livingston. The Offer Consideration does not include the Consent Payment.
In addition to the Total Consideration or the Offer Consideration payable in respect of Notes purchased in the tender offer, Livingston will pay accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Payment Date.
The Total Consideration and the Offer Consideration were determined as of 12:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on April 15, 2013 using the methodology described in the Offer to Purchase, based on the Reference Yield (as described in the Offer to Purchase) of 0.996% plus a Fixed Spread (as described in the Offer to Purchase) of 50 basis points and using the currently expected Payment Date. If the Expiration Time is extended, the Total Consideration and the Offer Consideration for Notes tendered pursuant to the tender offer prior to the new Expiration Time will be redetermined on the second business day prior to the new Expiration Time.
The obligation of Livingston to accept for payment and purchase the Notes pursuant to the tender offer remains conditioned on, among other things, the satisfaction or waiver of the General Conditions (as defined in the Offer Documents) and the consummation by Livingston of new credit facilities in a principal amount and on terms and conditions satisfactory to Livingston, in its sole discretion, as described in more detail in the Offer to Purchase. If any of the tender offer conditions are not satisfied or waived, Livingston will not be obligated to accept for purchase or make payment for any Notes tendered pursuant to the tender offer or may terminate the tender offer.
The depositary is expected to make payment to CDS Clearing & Depository Services Inc., the registered holder of the Notes, within one business day of receipt of funds from Livingston, in accordance with its standard payment procedures.
Information regarding the pricing, procedures for tendering Notes, payment procedures and conditions to the tender offer and consent solicitation for the Notes is contained in the Offer Documents. Holders who have not yet tendered their Notes are urged to read the Offer Documents.
