Early Results and Settlement of Cash Tender Offers by Embraer Netherlands Finance B.V.
SÃO PAULO, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Embraer S.A. ("Embraer") (NYSE: ERJ) informs the early results of previously announced cash tender offers (each offer, a "Tender Offer" and, collectively, the "Tender Offers") by its indirect subsidiary, Embraer Netherlands Finance B.V. ("Embraer Finance"), for up to US$250,000,000 (the "Maximum Tender Amount") in aggregate principal amount of outstanding (1) 5.150% notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") issued by Yaborã Indústria Aeronáutica S.A. ("Yaborã") and guaranteed by Embraer and (2) 5.696% notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes" and, together with the 2022 Notes, the "Notes") issued by Embraer Overseas Limited and guaranteed by Yaborã and Embraer.
The Tender Offers are being made on the terms and are subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated September 8, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase"). Embraer informs that the financing condition for the Tender Offers was satisfied and settlement for the Notes tendered prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 21, 2020 (the "Early Tender Date"), and accepted for purchase, occurred on September 23, 2020.
The following table sets forth certain information regarding each series of the Notes and the Tender Offers, including the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) as of the Early Tender Date, according to D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender agent and information agent for the Tender Offers (the "Tender Agent and Information Agent"):
Withdrawal rights with respect to each of the Tender Offers expired at the Early Tender Date.
As the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) as of the Early Tender Date exceeded the Maximum Tender Amount, the 2023 Notes that were accepted for purchase by Embraer Finance were prorated so as to accept the maximum principal amount of the 2023 Notes that did not result in the Maximum Tender Amount being exceeded. The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 5, 2020, unless extended by Embraer Finance. Since the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) as of the Early Tender Date exceeded the Maximum Tender Amount, Embraer Finance will not accept for purchase any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date.
Embraer Finance reserves the absolute right to amend or terminate either or both Tender Offers in its sole discretion, subject to disclosure and other requirements under applicable law.
Embraer Finance has engaged BB Securities Limited, Banco Bradesco BBI S.A., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Natixis Securities Americas LLC and Santander Investment Securities Inc. to act as the dealer managers (the "Dealer Managers") in connection with the Tender Offers.
