PLANO, Texas, Dec. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) (“Denbury” or the “Company”) today announced the commencement of private offers (the “Exchange Offers”) to Eligible Holders (as defined below) of its outstanding 6⅜% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2021, 5½% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2022, and 4⅝% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2023 (collectively, the “Old Notes”) to exchange a portion of their Old Notes for up to $650 million (such amount, the “Maximum Exchange Amount”) of newly issued 7½% Senior Notes due May 15, 2022 (the “New Senior Notes”). The New Senior Notes will be senior in right of payment to the portion of the Old Notes which remain outstanding after giving effect to the Exchange Offers and to any other current or future subordinated indebtedness of the Company. The Exchange Offers are being made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offering memorandum (the “Offering Memorandum”) and the related letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”), each dated December 21, 2015.
The Exchange Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on January 20, 2016, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the “Expiration Time”). For each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 7, 2016 (as it may be extended, the “Early Participation Time”), Eligible Holders will be eligible to receive the “Total Exchange Consideration” set forth in the table below, which includes the “Early Participation Premium”. For each $1,000 in principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered after the Early Participation Time, Eligible Holders will be eligible to receive only the “Exchange Consideration” set forth in the table below.
The following table sets forth the Exchange Consideration, Early Participation Premium and Total Exchange Consideration for each series of Old Notes:
Principal Amount of New Senior Notes (1)
Title of Old Notes
Principal Amount Outstanding
Early Participation Premium
Total Exchange Consideration(2)
6⅜% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2021
5½% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2022
4⅝% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2023
For each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes.
Includes Early Participation Premium.
In addition to the Exchange Consideration or Total Exchange Consideration, as applicable, the Company will pay in cash accrued and unpaid interest on Old Notes accepted in the Exchange Offers from the last interest payment date applicable to, but not including the Settlement Date (as defined in the Offering Memorandum) for the Exchange Offers. Interest on the New Senior Notes will accrue from the Settlement Date.
The consummation of the Exchange Offers is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of conditions set out in the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal, subject to the Company’s right to amend or terminate any of the Exchange Offers prior to the Expiration Time. Tenders may be validly withdrawn at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 7, 2016, but not thereafter unless that date is extended by the Company or required by law. The Company may, but is not obligated to, increase the Maximum Exchange Amount without extending the Early Participation Time or reinstating withdrawal rights.
The Company will accept for exchange Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or before the Early Participation Time before it accepts any Old Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time. If Old Notes are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by the Expiration Time in an aggregate principal amount that would require the issuance of New Senior Notes in an aggregate principal amount greater than the Maximum Exchange Amount, then only an aggregate principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) that results in the issuance of New Senior Notes in the Maximum Exchange Amount will be accepted for exchange on a pro rata basis for each tender in relation to the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes tendered in the Exchange Offers. No series of Old Notes will have priority over any other series of Old Notes to be exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offers. If the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered at or before the Early Participation Time constitutes an aggregate principal amount of Old Notes that, if accepted by the Company, would result in the Company issuing New Senior Notes having an aggregate principal amount equal to or in excess of the Maximum Exchange Amount, then the Company will not accept any Old Notes tendered for exchange after the Early Participation Time.
The New Senior Notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or under any state securities laws. The New Senior Notes may not be offered or sold within the United States, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. Documents relating to the Exchange Offers will only be distributed to “Eligible Holders” of Old Notes who complete and return an eligibility form confirming that they are either a “qualified institutional buyer” under Rule 144A or not a “U.S. person” under Regulation S as defined under applicable securities laws.
