BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil, July 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrade Gutierrez International S.A. ("AG International," or the "Issuer") announced today that it has amended (the "Amendment") certain terms of the New Notes (as defined below) to be issued in connection with its previously announced private offer to exchange its outstanding 4.000% Senior Notes due 2018 (the "Old Notes") for cash and newly issued 11.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2021 (the "New Notes") or for all New Notes (the "Exchange Offer"), and solicitation of consents from Eligible Holders of Old Notes to certain proposed amendments that would eliminate certain covenants and events of default provisions of the indenture under which such Old Notes were issued (the "Consent Solicitation" and, together with the Exchange Offer, the "Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation").

The Amendment extends the Early Participation Time from 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 1, 2018 to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 3, 2018. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated July 19, 2018, has been amended and revised to include additional disclosure, as well as to reflect improved terms for the New Notes. Amongst other changes to the terms of the New Notes, interest payments on the New Notes will commence on February 20, 2019, and, for the first interest payment period from and including the date of issuance, the Issuer may, at its sole option, elect to pay interest on the New Notes at the rate of 12.00% per annum, which interest will be paid entirely by capitalizing accrued and unpaid interest on the first interest payment date and adding the same to the principal amount of the New Notes then outstanding ("PIK Interest"). As a result of the Issuer's PIK Interest option, the New Notes are now denominated 11.000% Senior Secured PIK Toggle Notes due 2021.

The Issuer's decision to amend the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation follows discussions with the largest holder of the Old Notes and other significant holders of the Old Notes (the "Bondholders"). The Bondholders indicated that they are supportive of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation as revised pursuant to the terms of the Amendment.

The complete amended terms and conditions of the Issuer's offer to Eligible Holders, including amendments to the terms of the New Notes, are set forth in the Amended and Restated Exchange Offer Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated July 30, 2017. Eligible Holders may contact the Exchange Agent identified below for a copy of the Amended and Restated Exchange Offer Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement.

THE OFFERING MEMORANDUM AND CONSENT SOLICITATION STATEMENT, AS AMENDED AND RESTATED, CONTAINS CERTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT SHOULD BE READ BEFORE ANY DECISION IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE EXCHANGE OFFER AND CONSENT SOLICITATION, IN PARTICULAR, SEE "RISK FACTORS" IN THE OFFERING MEMORANDUM AND CONSENT SOLICITATION STATEMENT, AS AMENDED AND RESTATED. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT MUST BE READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OFFERING MEMORANDUM AND CONSENT SOLICITATION STATEMENT, AS AMENDED AND RESTATED.

The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation and the New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended, the "Securities Act") or any state securities laws. Accordingly, the New Notes will be subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws, pursuant to registration or exemption therefrom. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation will only be made, and the New Notes are only being offered and will only be issued (1) in the United States, to holders of Old Notes that are "qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act or "accredited investors" as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act, in a private transaction in reliance upon the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Section 4(a)(2) thereof and (2) outside the United States, to holders of Old Notes that are persons other than "U.S. persons" as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act in offshore transactions in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act ("Regulation S"), and/or (b) to "qualified investors," as defined in the EU Directive 2003/71/EC, as amended, and in the Luxembourg law of 10 July 2005 on prospectuses for securities, as amended (the "Eligible Holders").

Documents relating to the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation will only be distributed to Eligible Holders of Old Notes. Eligible Holders can only access the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation and related documents if they electronically complete an eligibility certification (the "Eligibility Letter") set out on the website of the Information and Exchange Agent (as defined below) at www.dfking.com/ag. Upon receipt of a duly completed eligibility certification, the Information and Exchange Agent will email login details to that Eligible Holder so that they can access a copy of the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement and related documents on that website.

The Issuer's obligation to exchange the Old Notes in the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation is conditioned on the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement. The consummation of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation is conditioned upon, among other things, the valid tender, without subsequent withdrawal, of at least 95% in aggregate principal amount of outstanding Old Notes. The Issuer has the right, in its sole discretion, but subject to applicable law, to amend or terminate the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation at any time. In the event of a termination of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation, no Exchange Consideration will be paid, and the Old Notes tendered will be promptly returned to the tendering Eligible Holders.
