The Republic of Uruguay ("Uruguay") previously announced an offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") its bonds of each series of Global Bonds listed in the table below (collectively, the "Old Bonds" and each Old Bond, a "series" of Old Bonds), subject to the terms and conditions contained in the Offer to Purchase, dated April 12, 2018 (the "Offer to Purchase").  Uruguay has instructed HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. (in such capacity, the "Billing and Delivering Bank"), to accept subject to proration and other terms and conditions contained in the Offer to Purchase, valid Preferred Tenders in aggregate principal amounts of Old Bonds as set forth below.  Capitalized terms used but not defined in this communication have the respective meanings specified in the Offer to Purchase.

 

The Non-Preferred Tender Offer and Preferred Tender Offer expired as scheduled at 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. New York time, respectively, on April 12, 2018.

 

The Maximum Purchase Amount is (i) US$0 principal amount for the 2022 Bonds (as defined below), (ii) US$227,356,771 principal amount for the 2024 Bonds (as defined below), (iii) US$0 principal amount for the 2025 Bonds (as defined below), and (iv) US$0 principal amount for the 2033 Bonds (as defined below).

 

The aggregate principal amount of Preferred and Non-Preferred Tenders of Old Bonds and the aggregate principal amount of Preferred and Non-Preferred Tenders of such Old Bonds that have been accepted are shown in the table below.  No Non-Preferred Tenders have been accepted.  Appropriate adjustments will be made so that purchases are made in the minimum denominations set forth in the Offer to Purchase.

Holders of Old Bonds held through DTC that have been validly tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer must deliver their accepted Old Bonds to the relevant Dealer Manager no later than 3:00 p.m., New York time, on the Settlement Date.  Holders of Old Bonds held through Euroclear or Clearstream that have been validly tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer must deliver their Old Bonds to the Billing and Delivering Bank, at the latest, using the overnight process, one day prior to the Settlement Date and must not use the optional daylight process. The Settlement Date is expected to occur on Thursday, April 19, 2018, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase. 

 

Failure to deliver Old Bonds on time may result (i) in the cancellation of your tender and in you becoming liable for any damages resulting from that failure, (ii) in the case of Preferred Tenders (a) in the cancellation of any allocation of New Bonds in the New Bonds Offering in respect of your related Indication of Interest and/or (b) in the cancellation of your tender and in your remaining obligation to purchase your allocation of New Bonds in respect of your related Indication of Interest and/or (iii) in the delivery of a buy-in notice for the purchase of such Old Bonds, executed in accordance with customary brokerage practices for corporate fixed income securities. Any holder whose tender is cancelled will not receive the Purchase Price or Accrued Interest.

 

All Old Bonds that are tendered pursuant to Tender Orders placed through a Dealer Manager and are accepted as instructed by Uruguay will be purchased by the Billing and Delivering Bank in such amounts as Uruguay shall determine and subject to the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase.  Only the Billing and Delivering Bank will be liable for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for Old Bonds validly tendered and accepted by Uruguay.  Uruguay will not be liable under any circumstances for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for any Old Bonds tendered in the Offer by any holder.  The Billing and Delivery Bank shall only have the obligation to sell to Uruguay the Old Bonds validly tendered and accepted for purchase that the Billing and Delivery Bank has actually purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer on the Tender Offer Settlement Date.  Tender Orders that are not for Permitted Tender Amounts will not be accepted.

Subject to the conditions to settlement of the Tender Offer, Old Bonds accepted for purchase will be settled on a delivery versus payment basis solely with the Billing and Delivering Bank on the Settlement Date, in accordance with customary brokerage practices for corporate fixed income securities.

 

Uruguay has agreed to apply a portion of the net proceeds of its new bonds offering announced on Thursday, April 12, 2018 (the "New Bonds Offering") to purchase the Old Bonds accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer from the Billing and Delivering Bank at the applicable Purchase Price plus Accrued Interest.  The Tender Offer is subject to the Dealer Manager Agreement relating to this Offer not being terminated prior to or at the time of the settlement of the Offer.
