Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT), today announced that it has commenced a cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase up to $515,000,000 aggregate principal amount (subject to increase by Starwood, the "Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount") of its 7.875% Senior Notes due 2014 (CUSIP No. 85590AAM6) (the “2014 Notes”), 7.375% Senior Notes due 2015 (CUSIP No. 450912AC4 – ITT Corporation), 6.75% Senior Notes due 2018 (CUSIP No. 85590AAL8) and 7.15% Senior Notes due 2019 (CUSIP No. 85590AAN4) (collectively, the “Notes”), subject to the Maximum Tender Amount for each series of Notes set forth in the table below. In conjunction with the Tender Offer, Starwood has commenced a consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) to proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture governing the 2014 Notes to reduce the minimum notice period prior to a redemption of the 2014 Notes from thirty days to three business days. The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are described in an offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated November 26, 2012 (the "Statement"), and a related Letter of Transmittal and Consent. Starwood reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or the Maximum Tender Amount with respect to any series of Notes without extending withdrawal rights except as required by law. The amounts of each series of Notes to be purchased may be prorated as set forth in the Statement.
