Grupo Posadas Announces Early Settlement of its Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation for Any and All of its Outstanding 9.250% Senior Notes due 2015

MEXICO CITY, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Posadas, S.A.B. de C.V. (the "Company") announces that early settlement of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") any and all of its U.S. $200 million in aggregate principal amount of outstanding 9.250% Senior Notes due 2015 (the "Existing Notes") and solicitation of consents (the "Consents") to amend the indenture relating to the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation" and, together with the Tender Offer, the "Offer"), occurred on November 30, 2012 (the "Early Settlement Date") for all Existing Notes that were tendered by 5:00 P.M., New York City time on November 23, 2012 (the "Early Tender and Consent Time").  The Company and the guarantors of the Existing Notes also executed a supplemental indenture on the Early Settlement Date to implement the amendments to the indenture governing the Existing Notes (the "Indenture") for which the Consents were sought.

Results of the Offer as of Early Tender and Consent Time

As previously announced, as of the Early Tender and Consent Time, U.S. $116.629 million aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes had been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the Tender Offer, and Consents in respect of those Existing Notes had been delivered in the Consent Solicitation.  Holders of Existing Notes who validly tendered Existing Notes and delivered Consents in the Offer, and whose tender and delivery of Consents were accepted by the Company, have received, in addition to accrued and unpaid interest, for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered, an amount in cash in U.S. dollars equal to U.S.$1,060.00 (the "Total Consideration"), consisting of (i) an amount equal to U.S.$1,015.00, (the "Tender Offer Consideration") plus (ii) an amount equal to U.S.$45.00, (the "Early Tender Fee").

The Offer expired at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on November 30, 2012 (the "Expiration Time").  Holders who validly tendered Notes and delivered the related Consents after the Early Tender and Consent Time, but at or prior to the Expiration Time, and whose tender and delivery are accepted by the Company, will receive the Tender Offer Consideration, but not the Early Tender Fee. U.S. $100,000 aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes, representing approximately .05% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes, were tendered after the Early Tender and Consent Time but at or prior to the Expiration Time.

The terms and conditions of the Offer are set forth in an offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated October 31, 2012 (the "Offer to Purchase"). 

The completion of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation were conditioned on, among other things:  (i) the receipt by the Company of an amount of net proceeds, in cash, not less than the amount of cash required to settle the payment of the Tender Offer Consideration or Total Consideration, as applicable, plus accrued interest for the Existing Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation, and all related expenses in connection therewith from one or more new debt offerings on terms satisfactory to the Company in its sole discretion at or before the applicable settlement date (the "Financing Condition"); (ii) the delivery to the information agent appointed by the Company (described below) of the Consents of holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the Existing Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time (the "Requisite Consents"); and (iii) the execution and delivery of the supplemental indenture  to the Indenture(described above) by the Company, the guarantors of the Existing Notes and the trustee under the Indenture.

The Requisite Consents have been obtained, the supplemental indenture has been executed and the Financing Condition has been satisfied as of the Early Settlement Date.

Final Settlement

The Company expects payment for the Existing Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender and Consent Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted by the Company for purchase to be made on or about December 3, 2012.
