PHH Corporation Announces Results of Tender Offers and Consent Solicitations as of the Early Tender Deadline

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.--()--PHH Corporation (NYSE: PHH) (“PHH” or the “Company”) today announced results as of the Early Tender Deadline (as defined below) of its previously announced cash tender offers (the “Offers”) and consent solicitations (the “Consent Solicitations”), with respect to any and all of its outstanding 7.375% Senior Notes Due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”) and 6.375% Senior Notes Due 2021 (the “2021 Notes” and, together with the 2019 Notes, the “Notes”) and the entry into the Supplemental Indentures (as defined below) with respect to the Notes.

The Offers and the Consent Solicitations are described in and were made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement dated June 19, 2017 (the “Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement”). Capitalized terms used in this release and not defined herein have the meanings given them in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2017 (the “Early Tender Deadline”), (i) $177,454,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2019 Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn, which represented approximately 64.53% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 2019 Notes, and (ii) $318,407,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn, which represented approximately 93.65% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes. On July 3, 2017, the Company accepted for purchase and payment all of the Notes that were validly tendered and not withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline.

Following receipt of the consent of the holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2019 Notes, on July 3, 2017, the Company executed a fourth supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the 2019 Notes (the “2019 Supplemental Indenture”), and following receipt of the consent of the holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2021 Notes, on July 3, 2017, the Company executed a fifth supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the 2021 Notes (the “2021 Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the 2019 Supplemental Indenture, the “Supplemental Indentures”). The Supplemental Indentures reflect the Proposed Actions (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement), which 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 governing the Notes, give effect to the consent to the Sales (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement) and waive any potential default that may occur resulting from the Sales. The Supplemental Indentures will become operative upon payment by the Company with respect to the Notes, which is expected to be the date hereof. The Supplemental Indentures will bind all holders of the Notes, including those that do not give their consent.

Holders of Notes who tendered their 2019 Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will receive $1,100.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2019 Notes validly tendered (which included the early tender payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2019 Notes), plus any accrued and unpaid interest from the most recent interest payment date for the 2019 Notes to, but not including, July 3, 2017. Holders of Notes who tendered their 2021 Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will receive $1,031.88 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2021 Notes validly tendered (which included the early tender payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2021 Notes), plus any accrued and unpaid interest from the most recent interest payment date for the 2021 Notes to, but not including, July 3, 2017. The Company will settle the transactions on the date hereof.

Holders who validly tender their 2019 Notes after the Early Tender Deadline, but on or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 17, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the “Expiration Date”), shall receive the tender offer consideration equal to $1,070.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2019 Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the 2019 Notes from the most recent interest payment date for the 2019 Notes to, but not including, the payment date for such Notes. Holders who validly tender their 2021 Notes after the Early Tender Deadline, but on or prior to the Expiration Date, shall receive the tender offer consideration equal to $1,001.88 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2021 Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the 2021 Notes from the most recent interest payment date for the 2021 Notes to, but not including, the payment date for such Notes.

The Consent Solicitations remain open for the submission of consents by holders of the Notes until the Expiration Date. Notes tendered pursuant to the Offers and the Consent Solicitations may no longer be withdrawn because the withdrawal rights expired on the date hereof when the Supplemental Indentures were executed. Subject to applicable law, the Company may extend, amend or terminate an Offer and Consent Solicitation.
