EL DORADO, Ark., Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Murphy USA Inc. (NYSE: MUSA) (“MUSA”) announced today the expiration and results of the previously announced offer by its wholly owned subsidiary, Murphy Oil USA, Inc. (the “Issuer”), to purchase for cash (the “Tender Offer”) any and all of its outstanding 6.000% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”), which expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 10, 2019 (the “Expiration Time”).
As of the Expiration Time, $144,548,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes, or 28.91% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding, had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. This excludes $5,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered in accordance with guaranteed delivery procedures, which must be delivered by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 12, 2019. The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer were set forth in an Offer to Purchase, dated September 4, 2019 (the “Offer to Purchase”).
The Issuer expects to accept for payment all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Time. In accordance with the terms of the Offer to Purchase, the Issuer will pay all holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase an amount equal to $1,022.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, including those properly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Time and those tendered by the guaranteed delivery procedures described within the Offer to Purchase, three business days after the Expiration Time, or September 13, 2019 (the “Payment Date”), subject to all conditions to the Tender Offer having been satisfied or waived by the Issuer. In addition to the applicable tender offer consideration, on the Payment Date, the Issuer will pay in cash accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date of the Notes accepted for purchase to, but not including, the Payment Date. For the avoidance of doubt, interest on the Notes will cease to accrue on the Payment Date for all Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer.
