LIMA, Perú, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Orazul Energy Perú S.A. (f/k/a Orazul Energy Egenor S. en C. por A.) (“Orazul“) today announced the expiration of the early tender period, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 12, 2021 (the “Early Tender Date“), of its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer“) for its 5.625% Senior Notes due 2027 (CUSIP Nos. 68559B AA5; P7372B AA1) (the “Notes“). In addition, Orazul announced that it has extended the payment of the Early Tender Payment (as defined below) through the Expiration Date (as defined below) (the “Extension“), such that the Total Consideration (as defined below) payable to holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Notes on or prior to the Expiration Date will include the Early Tender Payment.

On October 29, 2021, Orazul commenced the Tender Offer for up to an amount of its outstanding Notes that would not result in the aggregate purchase price exceeding $41,800,000 (the “Maximum Tender Amount“). The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in the offer to purchase, dated October 29, 2021 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, including pursuant to this press release, the “Offer to Purchase“), and remain unchanged except for the Extension. 

Holders who validly tendered their Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Date and do not withdraw such tendered Notes on or prior to the Expiration Date, and whose Notes are purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer, will be entitled to receive the “Total Consideration” of $1,007.50, which includes an “Early Tender Payment” of $50.00, for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes, subject to proration as described in the Offer to Purchase. In addition, holders will receive accrued and unpaid interest on all Notes tendered and accepted for payment in the Tender Offer from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Settlement Date for the Tender Offer, together with additional amounts thereon.

Holders of Notes who have not already tendered their Notes may do so at any time on or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 29, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by Orazul (the “Expiration Date”). Pursuant to the Extension described above, any such tender will also be entitled to receive the Early Tender Payment. Payment for the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Expiration Date and that are accepted will be made on the Settlement Date, which is expected to happen on December 1, 2021. Notes tendered may be withdrawn any time prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 29, 2021, unless extended by Orazul.

Subject to applicable law, Orazul may further amend, modify or terminate the Tender Offer at any time in its sole discretion.

The Tender Offer constitutes an asset sale offer pursuant to the requirements of the indenture governing the Notes, in connection with Orazul’s sale in October 2021 of its indirect ownership in the thermal power generation and hydrocarbon businesses, Termoselva S.R.L. and Aguaytía Energy del Perú S.R.L., to a special purpose vehicle of Nautilus Energy Partners LLC.
