/PRNewswire/ -- BioScrip
, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOS) ("BioScrip") announced today that it has irrevocably called for redemption on
August 19, 2013
(the "Redemption Date") all of its
aggregate principal amount of 10 ¼% Senior Notes due 2015 (CUSIP No. 09069NAC2) (the "Notes") that remain outstanding on the Redemption Date after completion of the Offer (as defined below), at a redemption price equal to 105.125% of the principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the Redemption Date (the "Redemption Price"). Notices of redemption are being delivered at the request and on behalf of BioScrip by U.S. Bank National Association, the trustee for the Notes, to the registered holders of such Notes.
BioScrip previously announced that it had commenced a cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") and consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation," and together with the Tender Offer, the "Offer") for any and all of the Notes. The Offer is described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated

BioScrip also previously announced that it had extended each of the consent payment deadline for the Consent Solicitation, the withdrawal deadline for the Consent Solicitation and the expiration date of the Offer to
New York City
July 30, 2013
, unless further extended by BioScrip in its sole discretion (the "Expiration Date"). Holders who validly tender their Notes and provide their consents to the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes prior to the Expiration Date will receive
principal amount of the Notes (which amount includes a consent payment of
principal amount of the Notes), plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes up to, but not including, the payment date for such Notes.
For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding today's announcement of the redemption of the Notes, all terms and conditions of the Offer remain unchanged. As of the close of business on
July 18, 2013
, based on information provided by Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the Depositary and Information Agent for the Offer, the consents of approximately
in aggregate principal amount, or 46.38%, of the outstanding Notes have been received.

There can be no assurance that the Financing Condition and the transactions contemplated by the Financing Condition will be consummated or that any other condition to the Offer will be satisfied.
