The tender offer and consent solicitation are being made upon the terms and subject to the conditions in the related Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated September 16, 2014. In connection with the tender offer, the company also solicited consents for certain proposed amendments to the indenture under which the Notes were issued that would, among other things, eliminate most of the restrictive covenants, certain events of default and certain related provisions contained in the Indenture as well as amend certain optional redemption provisions, including the minimum length for notice requirements and provide for the release of the liens on the collateral that secures the company's, Tembec's and the other guarantors' obligations with respect to the Notes. Pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the adoption of the Base Amendments and the Collateral Amendments required the consent of holders of at least a majority and 66 2/3% of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes, respectively. In conjunction with receiving the requisite consents, the company, the guarantors party thereto, Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee, and Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as collateral agent, executed a second supplemental indenture with respect to the Indenture governing the Notes effecting certain amendments that would implement the Amendments. The Supplemental Indenture is expected to become operative upon the acceptance for purchase by the company of the Notes tendered, which is expected to occur on or about October 1, 2014, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Statement, including a financing condition. Holders who validly tendered their Notes and delivered their consents on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline are eligible to receive USD 1,078.28 per USD 1,000.00 principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the first settlement date. The Total Consideration includes a consent payment of USD 10.00 per USD 1,000 principal amount of Notes. A holder's right to validly withdraw tendered Notes and validly revoke delivered consents expired on the Early Tender Deadline. The tender offer and consent solicitation remain open and will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 14, 2014, unless extended or earlier terminated by the company. Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline, but on or prior to the Expiration Time, and whose Notes are accepted for payment, will receive USD 1,068.28 per USD 1,000.00 principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes up to, but not including, the final settlement date.
