Revlon Announces Launch of Cash Tender Offer for Outstanding 9¾% Senior Secured Notes due 2015

NEW YORK--()--Revlon, Inc. (NYSE: REV) today announced that its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Revlon Consumer Products Corporation ("RCPC"), has commenced a cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase any and all of its outstanding 9¾% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 (the "Notes") and a concurrent solicitation of consents to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and a number of events of default under the indenture governing the Notes. Holders who tender their Notes will be deemed to consent to all of the proposed amendments and holders may not deliver consents to the proposed amendments without tendering their Notes in the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer is described in an offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated January 29, 2013 and related letter of transmittal (together the "Offering Materials," including any amendments or supplements to the foregoing). RCPC currently intends to redeem Notes not purchased in the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer is conditioned on, among other things, RCPC obtaining financing proceeds in an amount sufficient to effect the repurchase of the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, including the payment of applicable consent fees, accrued interest and costs and expenses incurred in connection therewith.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offering Materials, RCPC is offering to purchase for cash the Notes below:

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 26, 2013, or any other date and time to which we may extend the Tender Offer (the "Expiration Time"), unless earlier terminated. The consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be the tender offer consideration for the Notes set forth in the table above (the "Tender Offer Consideration").

Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer at or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2013 and accepted for purchase will receive the total consideration set forth in the table above (the "Total Consideration") which is equal to the Tender Offer Consideration plus the consent payment set forth in the table above (the "Consent Payment"). Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer after February 7, 2013, but at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for purchase will receive the Tender Offer Consideration, but not the Consent Payment. In addition, all Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for purchase will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the payment date.

Payment for Notes that are validly tendered in the Tender Offer at or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2013 and accepted for purchase will be made promptly after February 7, 2013. Payment for Notes that are validly tendered in the Tender Offer after 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2013, but at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for purchase will be made promptly after the Expiration Time. No tenders of the Notes will be valid if submitted after the Expiration Time.

Tenders of the Notes may be withdrawn from the Tender Offer at any time at or prior to, but not after, 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2013.

RCPC intends to call for redemption any Notes not tendered in the Tender Offer.
