Forest Oil Announces Results of Its Cash Tender Offer for Its 7.50% Senior Notes Due 2020 and Its 7.25% Senior Notes Due 2019 Business Wire DENVER -- November 22, 2013 Forest Oil Corporation (NYSE:FST) (Forest or the Company) announced today the results of its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase up to $700 million (the “Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount”) aggregate principal amount of its 7.50% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “2020 Notes”) and its 7.25% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes” and, together with the 2020 Notes, the “Notes”). The Notes are subject to purchase in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Level for each series of Notes and proration within the 2019 Notes as described in the Company’s Offer to Purchase dated November 7, 2013. According to information provided to Forest by the depositary for the Offer, approximately $277.9 million and $890.6 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2020 Notes and the 2019 Notes, respectively, had been tendered as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 21, 2013 (the “Early Tender Date”). Because the total principal amount of all Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Date is more than the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, Forest expects to accept all of such 2020 Notes for purchase, and to accept on a prorated basis an amount of such 2019 Notes so that the aggregate principal amount of the accepted Notes equals the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount. Holders of the accepted Notes will be eligible to receive the total consideration shown in the table below, which includes the early tender premium, together with accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the settlement date. Forest’s acceptance of any Notes for purchase is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Offer, including closing the pending sale of the Company’s oil and gas assets in the Texas Panhandle area. Such closing could occur as early as November 25, 2013. Forest also expects to make payment for all accepted Notes on the same business day that such closing occurs or on the next business day, depending upon the time of day the sale closes. The withdrawal period for tenders of Notes has expired, and Notes tendered in the Offer may no longer be withdrawn, except in limited circumstances described in the Offer to Purchase. The Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 6, 2013. Considering that Notes tendered before the Early Tender Date exceed the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, Forest has opted, as the Offer permits, not to accept any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date. All Notes tendered in the Offer and not accepted for payment will be returned to the holders as provided in the Offer to Purchase. The following table sets forth some of the terms of the Offer: Aggregate Dollars per $1,000 CUSIP Principal Principal Amount of Notes Acceptance Title Number Amount Tender Offer Early Total Priority of Outstanding Consideration Tender Consideration Level Notes Premium 7.50% 346091BF7, Senior 346091BG5 Notes and $500,000,000 $ 985.00 $ 30.00 $ 1,015.00 1 due U3455PAF2 2020 7.25% Senior Notes 346091AZ4 $1,000,000,000 $ 997.67 $ 30.00 $ 1,027.67 2 due 2019 Full details of the terms and conditions of the Offer are included in the Offer to Purchase and the related letter of transmittal.
