PANAMA CITY, Panama, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Aeropuerto Internacional de Tocumen, S.A., a sociedad anónima organized under the laws of the Republic of Panama (the “Issuer”), offered to purchase for cash (the “Tender Offer”) from each registered holder (each, a “Holder” and, collectively, the “Holders”), any and all of its outstanding 5.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2036 (the “2036 Notes”) and 6.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2048 (the “2048 Notes” and, together with the 2036 Notes, the “Notes”), subject the terms and upon the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated July 22, 2021, as supplemented by the First Supplement to the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated July 23, 2021 (as further amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Statement”). In conjunction with the Tender Offer, the Issuer solicited consents (the “Consents”) to certain amendments further described in the Statement (the “Proposed Amendments”) to each of (i) the Indenture, (ii) the Intercreditor Agreement, (iii) the Trust Agreement and (iv) the Assignment Agreement (the “Consent Solicitation”). Capitalized terms used in this announcement, but not defined herein, shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Statement.
The Issuer hereby announces that, as of August 4, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. New York City time (the “Early Tender Date“), it received valid tenders of Notes and Consents from Holders in the following amounts:
(1) U.S.$760,141,973 of the outstanding principal amount of the 6.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2048 was tendered, after applying the 98.62434% scaling factor set forth above to the original principal amount tendered.
(2) Original principal amount of each series of Notes tendered pursuant to the Offer expressed as an approximate percentage of the aggregate original principal amount of Notes outstanding of such series.
The Withdrawal Deadline has passed and holders may no longer withdraw Notes tendered in the Offer or revoke their Consents delivered in the Consent Solicitation. In accordance with the Statement, Holders of Notes that have been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation will receive the Total Consideration. In addition, such Holders of Notes will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on those Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date, together with additional amounts thereon, if any. As described in the Statement, assuming all conditions to the tender offer have been satisfied, the Issuer currently expects that the Early Settlement Date will be August 11, 2021.
The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 18, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the ” Expiration Date“). Eligible Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase, will not be eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment and will only be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration as described in the Statement.
Any Holder who tenders Notes in the Tender Offer will be deemed to automatically have provided Consents, and Notes may not be tendered without delivering Consents. Based on the participation received to date, the Company has also obtained the Requisite Consents to effect all of the Proposed Amendments as set forth in the Statement. The Proposed Amendments, upon becoming effective, will be conclusive and binding on all holders of the Notes, whether or not they have consented to the Proposed Amendments. The Proposed Amendments include, among other things others, (i) the elimination of substantially all restrictive covenants in the Indenture, (ii) the elimination of certain events of default in the Indenture, (iii) the addition of a right to redeem the Notes that have not been tendered during a clean-up period at the Clean-up Redemption Price, (iv) the introduction in the Indenture of the possibility for the Issuer to, at its sole discretion, pay premiums or benefits in connection with any redemption, offer to purchase or consent solicitation of any series of debt securities issued under the Indenture (which includes the Notes), and (v) the modification of certain provisions relating to the collateral in the Trust Agreement, the Intercreditor Agreement and the Assignment Agreement.
The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are conditioned upon, among other things, the settlement of a new offering of senior notes (the “New Offering”) on terms satisfactory to the Issuer, which should close on the same business day as the Early Settlement Date, as further described in the Statement.
