GREENWICH, Conn., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New Cotai, LLC (the "Company" or "New Cotai") and New Cotai Capital Corp. (the "Co-Issuer" and, together with the Company, the "Issuers") intend, subject to market and other conditions, including receipt of requisite consents to amend the indenture governing the existing notes as discussed below, to offer up to US$100,000,000 million aggregate principal amount of 10.625% senior pay-in-kind notes due 2019 (the "new notes").
The new notes will be issued as additional notes under the indenture, dated April 19, 2013 (as supplemented from time to time, the "indenture"), pursuant to which on that date the Issuers issued US$380,000,000 aggregate principal amount of their 10.625% senior pay-in-kind notes due 2019 (the "existing notes"). The new notes will have terms identical to those of the existing notes, other than with respect to the date of issuance and issue price. The new notes will have the same CUSIP numbers and ISINs as the existing notes, except for the new notes sold pursuant to Regulation S, which will trade separately under a different CUSIP number and ISIN until at least the fortieth day following the issue date of the new notes. The new notes that have the same CUSIP numbers and ISINs as the existing notes are expected to be fungible with the existing notes.
New Cotai intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund its capital commitments to Studio City International Holdings Limited ("Studio City International" and, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, "Studio City") related to Studio City's project to develop an integrated leisure resort in Macau combining 5-star luxury hotel and related facilities, gaming capacity, retail, attractions and entertainment venues (including a multipurpose entertainment studio) (the "Studio City Project"), to pay for planning and design costs relating to the additional development of the Studio City Project, to pay professional expenses and fees related to the offering, and for general corporate purposes.
In connection with the offering, the Issuers will seek to amend the indenture governing the existing notes to provide for, among other things, the issuance of the new notes. The Issuers currently expect to enter into agreements with certain holders (the "consenting holders") representing a majority of outstanding notes for purposes of consenting to such amendments under the indenture. The Issuers currently expect to offer to each consenting holder the opportunity to purchase a pro rata portion of the notes sold in the offering proportionate to the pro rata amount of existing notes held by such consenting holder.
The notes will be offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers that are qualified purchasers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not and will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the new notes, nor shall there be any sale of the new notes in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
