Minneapolis, Minn. and Brentwood, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Ceridian LLC (the “Company”) and Comdata Inc. (“Comdata”), today announced that Comdata has commenced tender offers pursuant to which Comdata will offer to purchase any and all of the Company’s outstanding 11 1/4% Senior Notes due 2015 (the “11 1/4% Notes”) and 12 1/4%/13% Senior Toggle Notes due 2015 (the “Toggle Notes” and together with the 11 1/4% Notes, the “Notes”). The Company currently has an aggregate principal amount of $765,000,000 of 11 1/4% Notes and $90,875,000 of Toggle Notes outstanding. In conjunction with the tender offers, Comdata has also commenced a solicitation for consents to certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes. The tender offers and solicitation are being made pursuant to an offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement and a related letter of transmittal, each dated as of May 21, 2014. The tender offers and consent solicitation will expire at midnight, New York City time, on June 18, 2014, unless extended.
Holders of Notes that are validly tendered and related consents validly delivered and accepted at or prior to the early tender time of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 4, 2014 will receive the total consideration of $1,007.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which includes the early tender payment of $20.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the settlement date.
Holders of Notes that are validly tendered and related consents validly delivered and accepted after the foregoing early tender time and at or prior to the expiration of the tender offer and consent solicitation will receive the tender offer consideration of $987.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the settlement date. Holders who tender and deliver related consents after the early tender time will not receive the early tender payment.
The proposed amendments will eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants contained in the indenture governing the Notes and the Notes (but not the covenant to pay the principal of, and interest on, the Notes when due). Holders who tender their Notes pursuant to the tender offers are obligated to consent to the proposed amendments to the Notes with respect to the entire principal amount of Notes tendered by such holders. Holders of Notes may not deliver consents in the consent solicitation without tendering the related Notes in the tender offers.
The tender offers and consent solicitation are contingent upon the successful completion of one or more debt financing transactions in an aggregate principal amount of at least $855 million. Comdata may amend or waive any of the conditions of the tender offers or the consent solicitation, in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, in its sole discretion.
