The Pantry, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTRY) announced today final results of its previously-announced offer to purchase any and all of its outstanding 7.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (the “Notes”) (CUSIP Nos. 698657AG8 / 698657AF0 / U6986NAB7) and solicitation of consents (the “Consents”) from holders of the Notes to effect certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes (the tender offer and consent solicitation, the “Offer”), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement (the “Offer to Purchase”) and a related Letter of Transmittal, each dated as of July 20, 2012. The tender offer expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 16, 2012 (the “Expiration Date”).
On August 3, 2012 (the "Early Settlement Date"), the Company announced that it had received tenders from holders of $199,856,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, representing 90.2% of the total outstanding principal amount of the Notes, at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 2, 2012 (the “Early Tender Deadline”). The Company accepted for purchase, and made payment for, all of such Notes on the Early Settlement Date. In addition, having received the requisite Consents from the holders of the Notes in connection with the consent solicitation, the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, executed a supplemental indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture”) effecting the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes. The Supplemental Indenture became effective upon execution on the Early Settlement Date, and the amendments to the indenture governing the Notes became operative on that same date upon acceptance of and payment for a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes by the Company pursuant to the terms of the Offer.
No additional Notes were tendered following the Early Tender Deadline and prior to the Expiration Date. The remaining $21,724,000 of the Notes that were not tendered and purchased pursuant to the Offer (the “Remaining Notes”) remain outstanding and holders thereof are subject to the terms of the indenture governing the Notes, as amended by the Supplemental Indenture. The Pantry issued a call notice on August 3, 2012 and will redeem any and all of the Remaining Notes on September 4, 2012.
BofA Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo Securities acted as dealer managers of the Offer. Global Bondholder Services Corporation acted as information agent and depositary for the Offer.
