DUBLIN, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL) ("Endo" or the "Company") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Endo Health Solutions Inc. ("EHSI"), has received requisite tenders and consents in connection with its previously announced offers to exchange any and all of the outstanding unsecured 7% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "2019 Existing EHSI Notes"), 7.00% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Existing EHSI Notes") and 7¼% Senior Notes due 2022 issued by EHSI (the "2022 Existing EHSI Notes" and, together with the 2019 Existing EHSI Notes and the 2020 Existing EHSI Notes, the "Existing EHSI Notes"), for new unsecured 7.00% Senior Notes due 2019, 7.00% Senior Notes due 2020 and 7.25% Senior Notes due 2022 (collectively, the "New Endo Finance Notes"), respectively, to be issued by Endo Finance LLC and Endo Finco Inc. and guaranteed by Endo Limited and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries, and the related solicitation of consents to amend the Existing EHSI Notes and the indentures governing the Existing EHSI Notes. Consents were solicited in respect of the indentures governing each series of the Existing EHSI Notes to approve proposed amendments that would, among other things, (i) delete in their entirety substantially all the restrictive covenants in each indenture, (ii) modify the covenants regarding mergers and consolidations, and (iii) eliminate certain events of default. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in EHSI's Offer to Exchange dated March 27, 2014 (as amended from time to time, the "Offer to Exchange").
As of 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on April 16, 2014 (such time and date, the "Consent Date"), as reported by the exchange agent, EHSI had received tenders and consents from holders of $477,919,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2019 Existing EHSI Notes, representing approximately 95.58% of the total outstanding principal amount of the 2019 Existing EHSI Notes, tenders and consents from holders of $393,463,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2020 Existing EHSI Notes, representing approximately 98.37% of the total outstanding principal amount of the 2020 Existing EHSI Notes, and tenders and consents from holders of $391,825,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Existing EHSI Notes, representing approximately 97.96% of the total outstanding principal amount of the 2022 Existing EHSI Notes. As a result, the minimum tender condition has been satisfied in the exchange offers and the requisite consents have been received in the consent solicitations to execute a supplemental indenture with respect to each series of the Existing EHSI Notes to effect the proposed amendments. Accordingly, EHSI intends to enter into a supplemental indenture with respect to each series of the Existing EHSI Notes to effect the proposed amendments. The proposed amendments will become effective upon entry into each of the supplemental indentures, however, they will not become operative until the Settlement Date.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Offer to Exchange, EHSI will pay to each holder, in respect of such holder's Existing EHSI Notes as to which consents were validly delivered (and not validly revoked), a Consent Payment of $7.00 per $1,000 principal amount of 2019 Existing EHSI Notes, $7.00 per $1,000 principal amount of 2020 Existing EHSI Notes and $14.25 per $1,000 principal amount of 2022 Existing EHSI Notes, payable in cash on the Settlement Date. Such Consent Payment is in addition to the Total Consideration payable to a holder in respect of its Existing EHSI Notes tendered prior to the Consent Date and accepted for exchange. Existing EHSI Notes tendered after the Consent Date and prior to the expiration of the exchange offers will not be eligible to receive the Consent Payment.
The exchange offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 29, 2014, unless further extended or terminated.
The terms and conditions of the exchange offers and the consent solicitations appear in the offering documents, which have been distributed to the holders of Existing EHSI Notes who have completed and returned a letter of eligibility confirming that they are "Eligible Holders" for the purposes of the exchange offers and the consent solicitations. EHSI expressly reserves the right to waive these conditions in whole or in part at any or at various times in its sole discretion.
