RESTON, Va., Feb. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. (“NII” or the “Company”) today announced a tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to $103,100,000 aggregate principal amount (the “Maximum Tender Amount”) of its outstanding 4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”). As of February 4, 2020, there were $113.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes outstanding.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Company’s Offer to Purchase, dated February 5, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”), the Company is offering to pay, in cash, an amount equal to $1,075 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes purchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date on the Notes to, but not including, the date of payment for the Notes accepted in the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 4, 2020, or any other date and time to which the Company extends such Tender Offer (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Expiration Date”), unless earlier terminated.

The Tender Offer is not conditioned upon a minimum amount of Notes being tendered, and there can be no assurance that the Tender Offer will be subscribed for in any amount. If the Company receives tenders of Notes in excess of the Maximum Tender Amount, it will accept for purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes equal to the Maximum Tender Amount, allocated among the tendering holders on a pro rata basis in accordance with the respective principal amounts of Notes tendered by each holder. For Notes that have been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Expiration Date and that are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, settlement is expected to occur within three business days following the Expiration Date, assuming the conditions to the Tender Offer have been either satisfied or waived by the Company at or prior to the Expiration Date, as further described in the Offer to Purchase. The Company expressly reserves the right for any reason, subject to applicable law, to extend, abandon, terminate or amend the Tender Offer. If the Company purchases the Maximum Tender Amount of the outstanding Notes, through this Tender Offer or otherwise, the Company intends to exercise its right under the indenture governing the Notes to redeem the Notes that remain outstanding at such time for a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.

The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase that is being sent to holders of the Notes. A copy of the Offer to Purchase may be obtained from the Information Agent for the Tender Offer, D.F. King & Co., Inc., by calling (866) 796-1290 (toll-free), (212) 269-5550 (collect) or by email at nii@dfking.com.
