The purpose of the tender offer is to partly prepay the company’s near-term debt maturities and to convey the comfortable liquidity position of the company. After the successful completion of this tender offer, the company expects $520 million notes to remain outstanding, APSEZ said.
The company further said, post this tender offer the company intends to offer to purchase for cash approximately $130 million of the outstanding notes in each of the next four quarters. The company may choose to either accelerate or defer this plan subject to its own liquidity position and the market conditions, and further subject to the terms, including the pricing, to be separately announced for each of such tranches, it added.
APSEZ said the company intends to fund the notes accepted for purchase in the tender offer from its cash reserves.
