, /PRNewswire/ — CIBanco, S.A., Institución de Banca Múltiple, solely in its capacity as trustee of trust CIB/3332, also known as Fibra SOMA (the “Company” or “we”) announced today the early tender results for its previously announced offer to purchase for cash an aggregate principal amount of its 4.375% Senior Notes due 2031 (CUSIP Nos. 171653AA6/ P26064AA6; ISIN Nos. US171653AA64/ USP26064AA66) (the “Notes”) issued by the Company (the “Offer”) for an aggregate purchase price, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, if any, of up to U.S.$150 million, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated November 15, 2022 (the “Offer to Purchase”). We refer to the aggregate amount that Holders are entitled to receive for Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase in the Offer, excluding Accrued Interest (as defined below), as the “Aggregate Purchase Price.”

According to the information received from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the information agent for the Offer, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time on November 29, 2022 (the “Early Tender Date”), the Company had received valid tenders of Notes (and not validly withdrawn) representing an aggregate principal amount equal to U.S.$201,381,000 of Notes, which represents an Aggregate Purchase Price of U.S.$142,980,510 pursuant to the terms of the Offer.

Accordingly, subject to the terms and conditions of the Offer as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, the Company has accepted for purchase the Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Date and expects that payment for all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted by the Company will be made on December 2, 2022 (the “Early Settlement Date”). Holders who validly tendered, and did not validly withdraw, their Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Date are eligible to receive the “Total Consideration” of U.S.$710.00 per U.S.$1,000 of principal amount of Notes tendered. The Total Consideration includes an “Early Tender Premium” of U.S.$50.00 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered. On the Early Settlement Date, the Company will also pay accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes accepted for purchase from the last applicable interest payment date for the Notes up to, but excluding, the Early Settlement Date, together with additional amounts thereon, if any.

The obligation of the Company to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Offer is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, including the New Debt Condition, in the sole discretion of the Company.

The Offer will expire on 11:59 p.m. (New York City time) on December 13, 2022 (the “Expiration Date”).

Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Date but on or prior to the Expiration Date will be eligible to receive the “Tender Consideration” of U.S.$660.00 per U.S.$1,000 of principal amount of Notes tendered, which is equal to the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Premium.  The “Final Settlement Date” is the date that we settle all Notes not previously settled on the Early Settlement Date, if any, and we expect such date to be promptly following the Expiration Date.
