Credito Real, S.A.B. de C.V., Sociedad Financiera de Objeto Multiple, Entidad No Regulada Announces Early Participation Results of Tender Offer for Any and All of its Outstanding 10.250% Senior Notes Due 2015

MEXICO CITY, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CREDITO REAL, S.A.B. DE C.V., Sociedad Financiera de Objeto Multiple, Entidad No Regulada (the "Company") announced today that the early tender period in respect of the previously announced cash tender offer and consent solicitation (the "Tender Offer"), for any and all of its outstanding 10.250% Senior Notes due 2015 (CUSIP/ISIN No. 22547AAA9/P32506AA8 and US22547AAA97/USP32506AA86) (the "Notes") expired on March 10, 2014 at 5:00 P.M., New York City time (the "Early Tender Deadline"). The Company further announced that as of the Early Tender Deadline, the Company had received tenders and consents (not validly withdrawn) from the holders of approximately US$180.7 million, or 86.06% of the total outstanding principal amount of the Notes. The consents received exceeded the amount needed to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture under which the Notes were issued (the "Indenture").

Based on the receipt of the consents, the Company intends to execute a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the Indenture. The Supplemental Indenture will eliminate the Company's obligation to comply with substantially all of the covenants contained in the Indenture, remove certain events of default and shorten the minimum notice period to holders required for a redemption from thirty days to six business days prior to the redemption date, with an additional minimum notice of three business days to the Trustee. The Supplemental Indenture will not become operative until the Company purchases a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes pursuant to the terms of the Tender Offer, which is expected to occur on March 13, 2014, the expected closing date for the new notes offering referenced below. The Supplemental Indenture will thereafter be binding on the holders of Notes not purchased in the Tender Offer.

The Company has elected to exercise its early purchase option described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated February 25, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase"), relating to the Tender Offer. Holders of Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will receive on March 13, 2014 (the "Early Payment Date"), an amount equal to US$1,095 for every US$1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered at or before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted in the Tender Offer, which consists of an amount equal to US1$1,065 (the "Tender Offer Consideration") plus an amount equal to US$30 for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the Early Payment Date. Holders of Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline but before the expiration of the Tender Offer will receive only the Tender Offer Consideration of US$1,065 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the purchase date therefor.

In accordance with the terms of the Tender Offer, withdrawal rights with respect to the tendered Notes expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 10, 2014 (the "Withdrawal Deadline"). Accordingly, holders may not withdraw Notes previously or hereafter tendered, except as required by law.

The Company's obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, the Company's receipt of aggregate net proceeds to fund the total consideration plus accrued and unpaid interest in respect of all Notes (regardless of the actual amount of Notes tendered) and estimated fees and expenses relating to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation. This condition is expected to be satisfied upon closing, on March 13, 2014, of an offering of $350 million aggregate principal amount of the Company's 7.500% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Concurrent Offering").

The Company's obligations to accept any Notes tendered and not withdrawn and to pay the consideration for them are set forth solely in the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal and Consent (collectively, the "Offer Documents"). The Tender Offer is made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Offer Documents, and the information in this news release is qualified by reference to the Offer Documents. Subject to applicable law, the Company may amend, further extend, withdraw or, subject to certain conditions, terminate the Tender Offer.

King & Co., Inc. has been appointed as the tender agent and information agent for the Tender Offer.

In any jurisdiction in which the Tender Offer is required to be made by a licensed broker or dealer and in which the dealer manager, or any affiliates thereof, are so licensed, the Tender Offer will be deemed to have been made by such dealer manager, or such affiliates, on behalf of the Company.
