RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elwood Energy LLC, a jointly and equally owned partnership of Dominion Resources, Inc. and J-POWER USA Generation, L.P., announced today that it has commenced a solicitation of consents related to its 8.159% Senior Secured Bonds due 2026 (CUSIP No. 290408AB9). Due to amortization, the unpaid principal amount outstanding of the Bonds is $175,686,060 or $437.03 per Bond (reduced from the original principal amount at issuance of $402,000,000 or $1,000 per Bond). Elwood Energy LLC, as issuer of the Bonds, wishes to amend the October 23, 2001 Trust Indenture (as supplemented and amended by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated October 23, 2001 and Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 1, 2002) to amend the definition of "Change of Control" and include more specific provisions related to the process to be followed should a "Change of Control" occur.
The Consent Solicitation seeks to modify the definition of a "Change of Control" to reflect the current ownership structure of Elwood Energy LLC, as well as to provide limited additional flexibility for the Company's owners under the Indenture's "Change of Control" provision. In addition, the Company is seeking to replace the current general provision involving the exercise of the "Put Right" associated with a Change of Control with more specific terms, including: imposing upon the Company a requirement to provide notice to holders upon a Change of Control event; removing any ambiguity concerning the period in which the Put Right can be exercised; and providing procedures related to the actual notice of exercise and payment of the amounts due upon exercise of the Put Right.
Holders of the Bonds are referred to the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated January 18, 2013, and the related Letter of Consent for the detailed terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation. The record date for determining the holders entitled to consent is January 17, 2013. The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 31, 2013 (the "Expiration Time"), unless extended in Elwood Energy LLC's sole discretion.
Subject to certain conditions, Elwood Energy LLC offers a consent payment equal to $2.50 in cash for each $1,000 in unpaid principal amount of the respective Bonds (or $1.092575 per Bond) to holders for which consents are validly delivered and not properly revoked prior to the Expiration Time.
Elwood Energy LLC has engaged Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC to act as solicitation agents for the Consent Solicitation. D. F. King & Co., Inc. has been engaged to act as the Information and Tabulation Agent for the Consent Solicitation. Questions or requests for assistance or additional copies of the Consent Solicitation Statement, the Letter of Consent and related documents may be directed to D. F.
