Alion Science and Technology Corporation (the "Company") announced today that the registration statement relating to its revised exchange offer, consent solicitation and unit offering relating to its 10.25% Senior Notes due 2015 (the "Unsecured Notes") was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on August 11, 2014. Since the Company had previously filed Amendment No. 1 to the registration statement that included certain updated financial information, the expiration date for the exchange offer, consent solicitation and unit offering has been extended for one day from 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on August 13, 2014 to 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on August 14, 2014 (the "Expiration Date"). The exchange offer, consent solicitation and unit offering (the “Transactions”) are part of the previously announced transaction in which the Company is seeking to refinance its existing indebtedness.
The Company has also extended the Early Tender Date and expiration date of the unit offering from 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 12, 2014 to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 13, 2014.
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 12, 2014, according to Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the Information and Exchange Agent, approximately $211,070,000, or 89.82%, of the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Unsecured Notes had been validly tendered for exchange and not withdrawn in the exchange offer and consent solicitation pursuant to the following options in the exchange offer:
|New Securities Option||$206,833,000||88.02%|
|New Securities Plus Unit Offering||
The Company continues to take all actions necessary to complete the Transactions and the new first lien financing. The completion of the Transactions and the new first lien financing is subject to the conditions described in the amended and restated preliminary prospectus, including the satisfaction or waiver by the Company of the minimum tender condition, which requires that at least 90% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of Unsecured Notes be validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the exchange offer and that the registration statements are not subject to any stop order suspending its effectiveness or any proceedings seeking a stop order. Subject to applicable law and certain of our contractual agreements, the Company may waive certain conditions applicable to the Transactions, including the minimum tender condition, and may extend, terminate or amend the Transactions, without extending the Expiration Date, except as required by law.
