MACAU, Nov. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Studio City Finance Limited (“Studio City Finance”) today announces the expiration of the early tender period and results of early tender of its previously announced cash tender offer for up to an aggregate principal amount of US$75 million of its outstanding 6.000% senior notes due 2025 (ISIN: US86389QAE26 and USG85381AE48) (the “Notes” and such tender offer, the “Tender Offer”). Studio City Finance has elected to amend the Tender Offer to increase the aggregate principal amount of Notes subject to the Tender Offer from US$75.0 million to US$100.0 million (as amended, the “Maximum Tender Amount”), with all other terms and conditions of the Tender Offer remaining unchanged and described in the Offer to Purchase dated November 9, 2023 (the “Offer to Purchase”).

Subject to the General Conditions set out in “The Offer—Conditions to the Offer” in the Offer to Purchase having been satisfied or otherwise waived by Studio City Finance, as the case may be, Studio City Finance expects to accept for purchase the Notes that were validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) pursuant to the Tender Offer by the Early Tender Date for a combined aggregate principal amount equal to the Maximum Tender Amount. The settlement for the Notes accepted by Studio City Finance in connection with the Early Tender Date is expected to take place on November 28, 2023 (the “Early Payment Date”).
