Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN) (the "Company") announced today the early tender results of its previously announced tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash any and all of its 5.75% Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes") and any and all of its 7.375% Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes" and, together with the 2018 Notes, the "Notes").
The Tender Offer is being made upon and is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated
February 6, 2013 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related Letter of Transmittal.
The Company's obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Notes in the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the Financing Condition (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) and a number of other general conditions described in the Offer to Purchase.
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 15, 2013 (the "Early Tender Deadline"), $235,910,000 in aggregate principal amount of 2018 Notes, representing approximately 94.36% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding of 2018 Notes and $209,784,000 in aggregate principal amount of 2020 Notes, representing approximately 83.91% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding of 2020 Notes, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. Acceptance by the Company of any Notes tendered will be subject to the terms and the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
The Tender Offer will expire at
New York City time, on
February 28, 2013, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Date").
As previously announced, holders who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase and payment pursuant to the Tender Offer, will receive the applicable Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) which includes the applicable Early Tender Premium (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline but at or prior to the Expiration Date, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase and payment pursuant to the Tender Offer, will not be entitled to receive the applicable Total Consideration and instead will be entitled to receive only the applicable "Offer Consideration" which is equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Premium. The deadline to validly withdraw tenders of Notes was on
