SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Credit Acceptance Corporation (Nasdaq:CACC) (referred to as the "Company", "we", "our", or "us") announced the final results of our tender offer, which expired at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Standard time, on March 10, 2011. We commenced the tender offer on February 9, 2011 to purchase up to 1,904,761 shares of our outstanding common stock at a price of $65.625 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest. Based on the final count by Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the depositary for the tender offer, 16,186,614 shares of common stock were properly tendered and not properly withdrawn. Because more than the maximum 1,904,761 shares were tendered, we purchased only a prorated portion of the shares tendered by each tendering shareholder, other than odd lot shareholders, as described in our Offer to Purchase. The proration factor used by us in accepting for purchase tendered shares was approximately 11.8%.
We will promptly pay for 1,904,761 tendered shares of our common stock at a price of $65.625 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest, at a total cost of approximately $125.0 million, which includes approximately 11.0 million shares tendered by Donald A. Foss, our Chairman of the Board and approximately 4.1 million shares tendered by the trustee of certain grantor retained annuity trusts created by Mr. Foss. We are financing the purchase of our securities in the tender offer through a combination of the proceeds of a new debt financing and by borrowing under our $170.0 million revolving secured line of credit facility.
As a result of the completion of the tender offer, we will have approximately 25.5 million shares of common stock outstanding. Georgeson, Inc. was the information agent for the tender offer.Description of Credit Acceptance Corporation Since 1972, Credit Acceptance has provided auto loans to consumers, regardless of their credit history.
