(NYSE: AOI) ("Alliance One" or the "Company") today announced that it has amended its previously announced cash tender offer for its 5½% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (the "Convertible Notes") to reduce the size of the tender offer. As amended, the cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") is now for up to $30.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Convertible Notes. The Tender Offer is being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Company's Amended Offer to Purchase dated July 29, 2013 (the "Offer to Purchase"). The Offer to Purchase and the related letter of transmittal more fully set forth the terms of the Tender Offer. Information relating to the Tender Offer is listed in the table below. Aggregate Principal Principal Amount Outstanding Amount Tender Offer CUSIP Title of Sought Consideration(1) No. Security $30,000,000 018772AQ6 5½% Convertible Senior Subordinated $115,000,000 $1,030.00 Notes due 2014 (1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes excluding accrued and unpaid interest, which will be paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration. If Convertible Notes with an aggregate principal amount in excess of $30.0 million are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, then, subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, Alliance One will accept for payment only $30.0 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes. In that event, the proration for each holder tendering Convertible Notes will be calculated with a proration factor of such amount so that Alliance One only accepts for purchase an aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes of $30.0 million.
