Stocks in this article: GPI









HOUSTON, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Group 1 Automotive, Inc. (NYSE: GPI) (the "Company"), an international, Fortune 500 automotive retailer, today announced that it has determined the final purchase price offered by the Company pursuant to its previously announced cash tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 (CUSIP No. 398905AG4) (the "Notes").

The final purchase price per $1,000 principal amount of Notes is $2,275.36. In addition to the final purchase price, holders will receive, in respect of their Notes that are accepted for purchase, accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes to, but excluding, the settlement date of the Offer. All amounts payable pursuant to the Offer will be rounded to the nearest cent.

The final purchase price was determined in accordance with the pricing formula described in the Company's Offer to Purchase, dated May 7, 2014, as amended and supplemented by Supplement No. 1 to the Offer to Purchase dated June 2, 2014 (as so amended and supplemented, the "Offer to Purchase"). The final purchase price is equal to the sum of (i) the Average Volume Weighted Average Price ("Average VWAP") (as defined below) multiplied by 26.4021 plus (ii) a fixed cash amount of $169.00. The Average VWAP at the close of trading on June 24, 2014 was $79.7800.

"Average VWAP" is the simple arithmetic average of the Daily VWAPs over the Averaging Period. The Averaging Period is the period of 32 consecutive trading days beginning on May 9, 2014 and ending on the Expiration Date (as defined below). The Daily VWAP for any trading day means the per share volume-weighted average price of the Company's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange, as displayed under the heading "Bloomberg VWAP" on Bloomberg page "GPI.N <equity> AQR", in respect of the period from the scheduled open of trading until the scheduled close of trading of the primary trading session of the New York Stock Exchange on such trading day. The Daily VWAP was determined without regard to pre-market hours or after hours trading or any other trading outside of the regular trading session trading hours.

The Offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of Tuesday, June 24, 2014, unless it is extended (such date, as it may be extended by the Company, the "Expiration Date") or earlier terminated by the Company.

The Offer is being made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. The Offer is not subject to any minimum tender condition. However, the Offer is subject to certain other conditions as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase. The Company expressly reserves the right to waive these conditions in whole or in part at any or at various times in its sole discretion.
