SAO PAULO, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hypermarcas S.A. today announced the
preliminary results of its previously announced cash tender (the "Tender
Offer") to purchase up to an aggregate amount of U.S.$300 million of its
U.S.$750 million 6.500% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes"). The terms and
conditions of the Tender Offer are described in Hypermarcas' Offer to
Purchase, dated October 28, 2013 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related
Letter of Transmittal.
According to information provided by the Information and Tender Agent for the
Tender Offer, U.S.$418,761,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes were
validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York

Hypermarcas also announced that it has increased the aggregate principal
amount of the Notes that it is offering to purchase in the Tender Offer from
U.S.$300,000,000 to U.S.$418,761,000 (as increased, the "Maximum Tender
Amount"). Except for such increase, all other terms and conditions of the
Tender Offer, as previously announced, remain unchanged. Because the Tender
Offer was fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who validly
tender Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Notes
accepted for purchase unless we increase the Maximum Tender Amount, which we
are entitled to do in our sole discretion.
Subject to the Maximum Tender Amount and the other terms and conditions
described in the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal, the Tender
Offer will expire, unless earlier terminated by Hypermarcas in its sole
discretion, at Midnight, New York City time, on November 25, 2013, unless
extended by Hypermarcas (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the
"Expiration Date"). Holders of the Notes who validly tendered their Notes at
or prior to the Early Tender Date and did not validly withdraw such Notes,
will be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as defined below), which
includes the Early Participation Payment (as defined below). In addition to
the consideration, accrued and unpaid interest on the purchased Notes will be
paid from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the settlement
date for such purchased Notes. The settlement date for the Notes validly
tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date is expected to be on November
14, 2013, or as soon as practicable thereafter.
The "Total Consideration" for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of the Notes
validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for
purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be U.S.$1,067.50. The Total
Consideration includes an early participation payment equal to U.S.$30 for
each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered at or prior to
the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer
(the "Early Participation Payment").
Tendered Notes may not be withdrawn from the Tender Offer after 5:00 p.m., New
York City time, on November 8, 2013.
