NOSTRUM OIL & GAS EARLY TENDER RESULTS ANNOUNCEMENT

 

 

 

Disclosure of inside information in accordance with Article 17 of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 (16 April 2014) relating to Zhaikmunai LLP and Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC

 

Nostrum Oil & Gas Finance B.V. Announces Early Tender Results for the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation

for Zhaikmunai LLP's outstanding 6.375% Senior Notes due February 14, 2019

and

7.125% Senior Notes due November 13, 2019

 

London/Netherlands -July 14, 2017 (10:30 CET) - Nostrum Oil & Gas Finance B.V. (the "Offeror"), which is a subsidiary of Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC (LSE:NOG), a London Stock Exchange listed, independent oil and gas producer operating in the pre-Caspian Basin, today discloses that Nostrum Oil & Gas Finance B.V. (the "Offeror"), which is also a subsidiary of Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC, announces today the early tender results (the "Early Tender Results") of its offers to purchase for cash Zhaikmunai LLP's 6.375% Senior Notes due February 14, 2019  and 7.125% Senior Notes due November 13, 2019 (together, the "Notes").

 

The Offers are being made pursuant to a tender offer and consent solicitation memorandum dated June 29, 2017, as amended pursuant to the announcement made on July 10, 2017 (the "Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum"), which sets forth a more comprehensive description of the terms of the Offers. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this press release shall have the meanings given to them in the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum.

 

The Offeror is pleased to announce that, as of the early participation deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 13, 2017 (the "Early Participation Deadline"), an aggregate principal amount of 7.125% Notes of approximately U.S.$374,834,000 has been validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers and an aggregate principal amount of 6.375% Notes of approximately U.S.$209,969,000 has been validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers. A total aggregate principal amount of Notes of approximately U.S.$584,803,000 has therefore been validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers. As withdrawal rights expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 13, 2017, all Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline may no longer be withdrawn.

 

In addition, an aggregate principal amount of 7.125% Notes of approximately U.S.$117,214,000 and an aggregate principal amount of 6.375% Notes of approximately U.S.$133,931,000 have validly consented (without tendering) with respect to the consent to certain covenant amendments requested as part of the Tender Offers.  Supplemental indentures with respect to the covenant amendments will be executed as soon as practicable.

 

The Tender Offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 27, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Date").

 

Based on the amount of Notes tendered and consents delivered on the date hereof, the requisite majority under each series of Notes have been tendered in order to pass the Proposed Amendment and Waiver for each series of Notes.  The Proposed Amendment and Waiver will be given effect to in a supplemental indenture for each series of Notes.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the Offeror has full discretion over which of the Tender Offers to consummate, and may decide to terminate one Tender Offer and proceed with another Tender Offer; provided, to the extent one or both of the Tender Offers is consummated, the Offeror will purchase 6.375% Notes and/or 7.125% Notes in a minimum combined aggregate principal amount of US$300.0 million (or, if lesser, the aggregate principal amount of the Notes tendered). 

 

The table below sets forth information with respect to the Notes and the Offers.

(1)       The Offeror intends to prioritise (i) the purchase of a majority of each of the 6.375% Notes and the 7.125% Notes on the basis that the Required Consents are obtained for both series, and (ii) once priority (i) is achieved, to prioritise the purchase of the 7.125% Notes in priority to the 6.375% Notes.   

 

 

The Offeror has also announced its intention to raise new bond financing guaranteed on a senior basis by, among others, Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC and Zhaikmunai LLP, on terms satisfactory to it (the "New Notes"). The purpose of the Offers and the contemplated issue of the New Notes is to extend the Group's (as defined below) debt maturity profile. 

 

Whether the Offeror will accept for purchase Notes validly tendered in the Offers is subject, amongst other conditions, to the raising by the Offeror of new bond financing under the New Notes.

 

If the Tender Offers are oversubscribed, the Offeror will accept for payment such tendered Notes on a pro rata basis on the amount of Notes tendered in the particular series they choose to purchase. Any Notes returned to the Noteholders following the proration shall be subject to the Proposed Amendments and Waiver.

 

Subject to all conditions to the Offers having been satisfied or waived by the Offeror, Noteholders who validly tendered (and did not validly withdraw) their Notes at or prior to  the Early Participation Deadline and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the "Total Consideration" of U.S.$1,026 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of the 7.125% Notes and U.S.$1,006 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of the 6.375% Notes.

 

Noteholders who validly tender their 7.125% Notes after the Early Participation Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration of U.S.$986 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes. Noteholders who validly tender their 6.375% Notes after the Early Participation Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration of U.S.$976 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of 6.375% Notes.

 

As the Proposed Amendments and Waiver were passed, the Proposed Amendments and Waiver will become operative, and the holders of each series will be eligible to receive the "Consent Payment" of U.S.$4 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes for which a valid Tender Instruction or Consent Only Instruction was received before the Early Participation Deadline with respect to the applicable series of Notes (whether or not proration occurs but provided the Proposed Amendments and Waiver become operative with respect to the applicable series of Notes).  The Consent Payment is in addition to the Total Consideration and the Tender Offer Consideration.

 

In addition to the Total Consideration or the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, Noteholders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive accrued and unpaid interest from and including the most recent interest payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the Settlement Date.

 

The complete terms and conditions of the Offers are described in the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum, copies of which may be obtained by contacting Citibank N.A., London Branch, Citigroup Centre, Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5LB, United Kingdom, which is acting as the tender agent for the Offers, at +44 207 508 3867. Citigroup Global Markets Limited and VTB Capital PLC are acting as dealer managers for the Offers (the "Dealer Managers").
