WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/17/13 -- ARC Document Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ARC) announced the expiration of the consent payment deadline in connection with the previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") and consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") relating to its outstanding 10.5% Senior Notes due 2016 (CUSIP No. 029263AB6) (the "Notes").
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 16, 2013 (the "Consent Payment Deadline"), holders representing approximately 68% ($127.5 million) in aggregate principal amount of the Notes had validly tendered their Notes and delivered their consents (the "Consents") to certain proposed amendments (the "Proposed Amendments") to the indenture governing the Notes, which exceeded the amount required for adoption of the Proposed Amendments. Based on the receipt of the required Consents, the company and the trustee under the indenture expect to enter into a supplemental indenture reflecting the Proposed Amendments. The supplemental indenture will not become operative unless and until the Tender Offer is consummated.
Consummation of the Tender Offer, including the settlement of any Notes tendered at or prior to the Consent Payment Date, will be subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, among other things, receipt of sufficient proceeds from new debt financing to fund the Tender Offer. If any of the conditions are not satisfied, the company is not obligated to accept for payment, purchase or pay for, and may delay the acceptance for payment of, any tendered Notes, and may terminate the Tender Offer. Full details of the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are included in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement (the "Statement") and the related Consent and Letter of Transmittal, each dated December 3, 2013.
