This announcement does not contain the full terms and conditions of the Offers and the Consent Solicitations, which are contained in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement dated June 19, 2017 (the “Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement”) and the related letter of transmittal and consent (the “Letter of Transmittal and Consent”) (as they may each be amended or supplemented, the “Offer Documents”). The Company refers Holders to the Offer Documents for the complete terms and conditions of the Offers and the Consent Solicitations.
Each Offer and Consent Solicitation will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 17, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). The Company reserves the right to extend or earlier terminate one Offer without making a corresponding change to the other Offer, and may do so without extending the applicable Early Tender Deadline (as defined herein) or withdrawal rights.
Holders who validly tender and deliver and do not withdraw or revoke Notes and Consents at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, as the same may be extended with respect to one or both series of Notes, the “Early Tender Deadline”) will be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration which includes the applicable Early Tender Payment, the amounts of which are set forth in the table above with respect to such series of Notes. Holders who desire to tender their Notes pursuant to an Offer must deliver a Consent and such Holders may not deliver Consents without tendering their Notes.
Holders who validly tender and deliver Notes and Consents after the applicable Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the applicable Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the applicable Tender Offer Consideration as set forth in the table above, which represents the applicable Total Consideration less the applicable Early Tender Payment with respect to such series of Notes.
Upon the terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, payment for Notes accepted for purchase will be made (a) with respect to the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the applicable Early Tender Deadline, at the Company’s option, on any day after the applicable Early Tender Deadline up to and including the applicable Final Settlement Date, and (b) with respect to Notes validly tendered after the applicable Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the applicable Expiration Time, on the applicable Final Settlement Date.
In addition, Holders of Notes that are accepted by the Company will be paid accrued and unpaid interest from the last date on which interest was paid up to, but excluding, the applicable settlement date.
Notes may be withdrawn and Consents may be revoked at any time on or prior to the applicable Early Tender Deadline, but not thereafter.
In the event that the Company receives the Requisite Consents (as defined herein) from the Holders of a series of Notes, the Company will enter into a supplemental indenture (“Supplemental Indenture”) with respect to such series, reflecting the Proposed Actions.
Consummation of each Offer and Consent Solicitation is subject to conditions as set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, including, amongst others: (i) the receipt of Consents from Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such series then outstanding (excluding any Notes held by us or our affiliates) (the “Requisite Consents”); and (ii) the Company's successful completion of one or more sales of the Company's mortgage servicing rights (the “MSRs”), together with all related servicing advances (the “Advances”), pursuant to that certain agreement dated as of December 28, 2016 by and between New Residential Mortgage LLC, PHH Mortgage Corporation and the Company, which sales represent an aggregate of at least $450 million of book value of the MSRs and Advances on the Company's balance sheet as of March 31, 2017. The Company may amend or waive any condition with respect to one Offer without taking a corresponding action to the other Offer.
The Proposed Actions will eliminate or modify substantially all of the restrictive covenants as well as certain events of default and other provisions contained in each of the Indentures, give effect to the consent to the Sales and waive any potential default that may occur resulting from the Sales, including if the Sales constitute all or substantially all of the Company's assets.
Subject to applicable law, the Company may extend, amend or terminate an Offer and Consent Solicitation. Capitalized terms used in this release and not defined herein have the meanings given them in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement.
