China Forestry Holdings Co., Ltd. Announces Further Extension of the Expiration Date for its Pending Tender Offer for Any and All of its 10.25% Senior Notes Due 2015 and Related Consent Solicitation

HONG KONG, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China Forestry Holdings Co., Ltd. announced today the further extension of the Expiration Date for its previously announced tender offer to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 10.25% Senior Notes due 2015 (the "Notes") and related consent solicitation. The tender offer and consent solicitation are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated November 22, 2013, as amended (the "Offer to Purchase").

The previously announced Expiration Date for Notes validly tendered pursuant to the tender offer and consent solicitation has been extended to 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, on March 24, 2014 (unless further extended or earlier terminated).  Notes that are validly tendered prior to such time pursuant to the tender offer and consent solicitation and accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive the Tender Offer Consideration.  As of 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on February 24, 2014, $103,344,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, representing 66.58% of the outstanding Notes not held by the company, had been tendered. 

The consents received to date, unless withdrawn, are sufficient to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture relating to the Notes, which amendments would eliminate most of the restrictive covenants and certain other related provisions (including certain events of default) of the indenture or make such covenants less restrictive.

Aside from the extension of the Expiration Date, all other terms and conditions of the tender offer and consent solicitation remain unchanged.  The Early Consent Deadline expired on December 6, 2013.  Any Notes tendered after the Early Consent Deadline will be entitled to receive only the Tender Offer Consideration.

The tender offer and consent solicitation are conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, including the company's receipt of funds from one or more financings sufficient to pay the Tender Offer Consideration with respect to the Notes. Subject to applicable law, the company may also terminate the tender offer and consent solicitation at any time before the Expiration Date in its sole discretion.

The information agent and tender agent is Bondholder Communications Group, LLC. Copies of the Offer to Purchase are available by contacting Bondholder Communications Group, LLC at (212)-809-2663 in the United States or +44-(0)-20-7382-4580 in London. 

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or purchase, or the solicitation of an offer to sell or purchase, or the solicitation of tenders or consents with respect to the Notes.

The tender offer and consent solicitation for the Notes are only being made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase that the company has distributed to holders of the Notes. The tender offer and consent solicitation are not being made to holders in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction.
