The record date to determine holders of the Notes eligible to consent was August 12, 2016.
The Consent Solicitation is being conducted in connection with the previously announced purchase agreement, pursuant to which a consortium of investors headed by Eagle LM5 LLC, a portfolio company of certain funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, LLC (together with its consolidated subsidiaries and affiliates, “Apollo”), along with other investors including the CEO and President of the Company, certain other members of management, and potentially a number of existing coinvestors, have agreed to purchase all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of the Company (the “Acquisition”). The Consent Solicitation is conditioned upon, among other things, the closing of the Acquisition and other customary conditions precedent.
The Consent Solicitation
The Issuers are seeking consents from holders of the Notes with respect to (i) a waiver (the “Waiver”) of any “Change of Control,” including any obligation of the Issuers to make a “Change of Control Offer”, and (ii) certain amendments to the indenture governing the Notes (the “Proposed Amendments”). The Consent Solicitation is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Issuers’ Consent Solicitation Statement dated August 15, 2016 (the “Consent Solicitation Statement”).
Holders of Notes who validly consent to the Waiver and Proposed Amendments on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 24, 2016, unless otherwise extended (such time and date, as it may be extended, the “Consent Time”), and do not validly revoke their consent prior to the Withdrawal Deadline (as defined in the Consent Solicitation Statement), will be eligible to receive the consent fee set forth below for each $1,000 in principal amount of Notes with respect to which consents have been so received.
