GFI Group Inc. Announces Successful Completion of its Consent Solicitation with Respect to its 8.375% Senior Notes Due 2018

GFI Group Inc. announced that it has received the consents necessary to effect an amendment to the Indenture, dated as of July 19, 2011, between GFI and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (as supplemented or amended, the Indenture) that governs GFI's 8.375% Senior Notes due 2018 (CUSIP No. 361652AA8). The Notes have been fully and unconditionally guaranteed by BGC Partners Inc. The Amendment modifies the Indenture's reporting covenant to provide that, so long as BGC (or another publicly reporting company controlling GFI) guarantees the Notes, the reports that BGC (or such other publicly reporting company controlling GFI) files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) will be furnished to the Trustee in lieu of GFI's SEC reports. GFI received the consents of holders of a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 12, 2016 (such time and date, the Expiration Time). As a result, GFI, BGC and the Trustee have entered into the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of January 12, 2016, which effects the Amendment (the Supplemental Indenture). The Supplemental Indenture was executed on January 12, 2016, and the Amendment will become operative upon payment of the consent consideration described in the following paragraph. After the Supplemental Indenture has become operative, GFI will cease filing annual, quarterly, and other reports with the SEC. GFI will make or cause to be made to consenting holders of Notes an aggregate cash payment equal to $1,800,000, representing the aggregate Consent Fee. The Consent Fee is an amount, per $1,000 principal amount of Notes for which a holder has delivered (prior to the Expiration Time) and not revoked (prior to the execution of the Supplemental Indenture) its consent, equal to the product of $7.50 multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding at the Expiration Time and the denominator of which is the aggregate principal amount of Notes for which holders have delivered and not revoked consents (the Consent Fee). The amount of the Consent Fee will be approximately $8.10 per $1,000 principal amount. The Consent Fee is expected to be paid on January 15, 2016.
