Bankrate, Inc. announced the expiration (on May 11, 2015) and final results of its previously announced solicitation of consents to amend the indenture governing its 6.125% Senior Notes due 2018. In addition, the company announced that it has obtained a waiver, dated May 11, 2015, to its existing revolving credit agreement. The Company received consents from the holders of more than a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 11, 2015, as reported by the tabulation agent. The Proposed Amendments required the consent of holders of a majority of the Notes. The Waiver to the Credit Agreement waives compliance by the Company with certain of the reporting covenants set forth in the Credit Agreement. Holders who validly delivered consents to the Proposed Amendments in the manner described in the Consent Solicitation Statement dated May 4, 2015 are eligible to receive, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement, consent consideration equal to $1.25 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes with respect to which consents were validly delivered. Pursuant to the terms of the Proposed Amendment, an additional $1.25 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes with respect to which consents were validly delivered will be paid on or before June 25, 2015, unless the 2014 third quarter report, 2014 Annual Report and the 2015 first quarter report have been delivered to the Trustee on or before June 24, 2015. Holders providing consents after the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive either the Initial Consent Payment or the Second Consent Payment.

Bankrate, Inc. Commences Consent Solicitation for Senior Notes

Bankrate, Inc. said that it commenced a consent solicitation to amend an indenture governing its 6.125% senior notes due 2018. The purpose of the consent solicitation is to amend the indenture so that the delivery to the indenture trustee of financial information relating to the company's third quarter of 2014, subject to certain conditions, fiscal year 2014 and first quarter of 2015 is not required until June 24. If the company makes a second consent payment, the deadline would be moved to July 14. The solicitation also would cause holders of the notes to release and waive any default or noncompliance by the company, certain guarantors and their subsidiaries arising from the failure to timely deliver such financial information. The consent solicitation is scheduled to expire at 5 p.m. ET on May 11 unless extended or terminated by the company. Holders who validly deliver, and do not validly revoke, their consents will be entitled to receive consent consideration equal to $1.25 per $1,000 principal amount of notes. An additional $1.25 per $1,000 principal amount of notes will be paid on or before June 25, unless the financial information has been delivered to the trustee on or before June 24. RBC Capital Markets LLC is the solicitation agent.
