Dole Food Company, Inc. (“Dole”) announced today the commencement of a consent solicitation regarding certain amendments (the “Amendments”) to the Indenture, dated as of April 6, 2017, among Dole, DFC Holdings, LLC (“Holdings”), as a guarantor, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), governing its 7.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) (the “Indenture”). Currently, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of Notes is $300,000,000.
The Amendments would release Holdings from its guarantee under the Indenture (and its other limited obligations under the Indenture and the Security Documents (as defined in the Indenture)), in each case, upon the consummation of a Qualified IPO (as defined in the Indenture) with respect to the common stock of the Issuer, and subject to the substantially concurrent (or prior) release of Holdings’ guarantees under the Term Loan Credit Agreement and Revolving Credit Agreement (each as defined in the Indenture).
The consent solicitation is conditioned upon the receipt of consents from holders of record as of June 23, 2017 of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes (the “Requisite Consents”). The consent solicitation will expire at 5:00pm, New York City time, on July 6, 2017, unless extended (the “Expiration Date”).
Dole will, promptly after the Expiration Date and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the consent solicitation, pay to each holder of Notes who has delivered (and not revoked) a valid consent in favor of the Amendments a cash payment (the “Consent Fee”) of $2.50 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes in respect of which such consent has been delivered.
The Amendments will be effected by, and will become effective upon, execution of a supplemental indenture. Dole proposes to execute the supplemental indenture as soon as practicable after obtaining the related Requisite Consents. At that time, the Amendments effected by the supplemental indenture will become effective and consents may no longer be revoked.
For a complete statement of the terms and conditions of the consent solicitations, holders of the Notes should refer to the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated June 26, 2017 (the “Consent Solicitation Statement”), which is being sent to all holders of the Notes as of the Record Date.
