CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that holders of approximately €179 million of the outstanding 9.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2017 (the “2017 Notes”) issued by CEMEX Finance LLC tendered their 2017 Notes at or prior to the early tender deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 8, 2013 (the “Early Tender Date”), pursuant to CEMEX’s previously announced cash tender offer to purchase up to €220 million (the “Maximum Tender Amount”) of the outstanding 2017 Notes. The cash tender offer is being made pursuant to an offer to purchase, dated September 25, 2013, relating to the 2017 Notes.
The following table summarizes the material pricing terms for the tender offer:
|Title of Security||ISIN||Aggregate Principal Amount Outstanding||Maximum Tender Amount||Early Tender Date||Base Consideration||Early Tender Payment||Total Consideration|
|9.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2017||XS0473870607 / XS0473787884||€350,000,000||€220,000,000 Aggregate Principal Amount||5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 8, 2013||€1,033.50*||€30*||€1,063.50*|
* Per €1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes accepted for purchase.
Holders of 2017 Notes that validly tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose 2017 Notes have been accepted for purchase are entitled to receive €1,063.50 per €1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes accepted for purchase, which includes an early tender payment equal to €30 per €1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes accepted for purchase (the “Early Tender Payment”). The early settlement date on which CEMEX will make payment for such 2017 Notes is expected to be October 10, 2013 (the “Early Settlement Date”). Holders who tender 2017 Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 23, 2013 (the “Expiration Date”), and whose 2017 Notes are accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive only the Base Consideration per €1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes, which amount is equal to the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Payment. Holders who validly tender their 2017 Notes in the tender offer and whose 2017 Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their accepted 2017 Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date. 2017 Notes that have been validly tendered cannot be withdrawn, except as may be required by applicable law.
If the principal amount of all 2017 Notes validly tendered on or prior to the Expiration Date exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, the principal amount of 2017 Notes purchased after the Early Settlement Date will be prorated based on the principal amount of all 2017 Notes validly tendered on or prior to the Expiration Date. Holders whose 2017 Notes are accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date will not be subject to such proration. If any tendered 2017 Notes are not accepted for payment, such 2017 Notes will be returned without expense to the tendering holder.
