SAO PAULO, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gol LuxCo S.A. ("LuxCo") and GOL Finance ("Gol Finance" and, together with LuxCo, the "Offerors"), both subsidiaries of GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. ("GLAI"), today announced  that LuxCo has commenced an offer to purchase for cash (the "2023 Notes Tender Offer") any and all of its outstanding 10.750% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes") and Gol Finance has commenced an offer to purchase for cash (the "2020 Notes Tender Offer") any and all of its outstanding 9.250% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes") and an offer to purchase for cash (the "2017 Notes Tender Offer" and, together with the 2023 Notes Tender Offer and the 2020 Notes Tender Offer, the "Tender Offers") any and all of its outstanding 7.50% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "2017 Notes" and, together with the 2023 Notes and the 2020 Notes, the "Notes").  The Notes are fully, unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by GLAI and VRG Linhas Aereas S.A.

In connection with the Tender Offers, the Offerors are also soliciting the consents (the "Consent Solicitations") of the holders of the Notes (the "Holders") to the adoption of certain amendments (the "Proposed Amendments") to each of the indentures governing the Notes to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants, as well as various events of default and related provisions contained in such indentures.  The Proposed Amendments require the consents (the "Requisite Consents") of Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of each outstanding series of Notes (excluding any Notes held by the Offerors or its affiliates).  Holders who tender their Notes pursuant to the Tender Offers will also be providing consents with respect to such Notes to the Proposed Amendments.

The Consent Solicitations will be terminated if the Requisite Consents are not obtained and, in such case, the Proposed Amendments to the indentures governing the Notes will not become effective.  However, the Offeror reserves the right in its sole discretion to accept and purchase Notes tendered pursuant to the concurrent Tender Offers for an amount in cash equal to the applicable consideration.
