The Securities represent the most senior class of a series of notes issued by the Trust, referred to as the Series 2013-I Notes. The Offeror owns each of the subordinated classes of the Series 2013-I Notes, which consist of the Class B, Class C, and Class D Fixed Rate Asset-Backed Notes, Series 2013-I.
Per $1,000 principal amount of Securities using a hypothetical Pricing Determination Date of September 18, 2020, a hypothetical Settlement Date of October 1, 2020 and a hypothetical Interpolated Swap Rate which would have been in effect had it been measured at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 18, 2020. This hypothetical Purchase Price is for reference only. The actual Purchase Price will differ from the hypothetical Purchase Price when calculated as of the Pricing Determination Date (as defined below) or the Settlement Date (as defined below) due to changes in the Interpolated Swap Rate.
The Offer is being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase dated September 21, 2020 (the Offer to Purchase), which contains detailed information concerning the terms of the Offer. The Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 25, 2020, unless extended or earlier terminated (the Expiration Date). Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer, the Settlement Date is expected to be October 1, 2020.
The purchase price payable for the Securities (the Purchase Price) will be a price per $1,000 principal amount of the Securities validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by the Holders at any time on or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase by the Offeror equal to an amount, calculated in accordance with the Offer to Purchase, that would reflect, as of the Expiration Date, a yield to the expected principal payment date for the Securities equal to the sum of (i) the Interpolated Swap Rate (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and calculated thereunder), determined at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Expiration Date (the Pricing Determination Date), plus (ii) the Fixed Spread set forth under the heading Fixed Spread above, minus Accrued Interest (as defined below) on the Securities, as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.
The Offeror will pay the Purchase Price, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the most recent interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date (the Accrued Interest) for any Securities validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by the Holders at any time on or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase by the Offeror in same-day funds on the Settlement Date.
The Interpolated Swap Rate will be calculated in accordance with standard market practice and will be based on the bid and offered swap rates for the 2 Year USD Semi-Annual Mid-Swap Rate and the 3 Year USD Semi-Annual Mid-Swap Rate, each as displayed on the Interest Rate Swap Rate (IRSB) Bloomberg Reference Page IRSB US (the Reference Page) as of the Pricing Determination Date.
The Interpolated Swap Rate will be determined at the Pricing Determination Date. If the Dealer Managers determine that the Reference Page is not operational or is displaying inaccurate information at that time, the bid and offered swap rates for the 2 Year USD Semi-Annual Mid-Swap Rate and the 3 Year USD Semi-Annual Mid-Swap Rate determined at or around the Pricing Determination Date shall be determined by such other means as the Offeror, in consultation with the Dealer Managers, may consider to be appropriate under the circumstances.
Tenders of Securities pursuant to the Offer may be validly withdrawn at any time before the earlier of (i) the Expiration Date, and (ii) if the Offer is extended, the 10th business day after commencement of the Offer. Securities subject to the Offer may also be validly withdrawn at any time after the 60th business day after commencement of the Offer if for any reason the Offer has not been consummated within 60 business days after commencement.
The Offer is conditioned upon a minimum aggregate principal amount of $294,525,000 of the outstanding Securities being validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Expiration Date and on satisfaction of certain additional customary general conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. Subject to applicable law, the Offeror may, at its sole discretion, waive any condition applicable to the Offer and may extend the Offer. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this press release shall have meanings ascribed to them in the Offer to Purchase.
The Offeror expects to retire and cancel the Securities that it acquires in the Offer. In accordance with the terms of the Indenture governing the Securities, the Offeror intends to redeem the remaining outstanding Securities not acquired in the Offer following the cancellation of the Securities that it acquired in the Offer. The redemption price for the Securities not acquired in the Offer will be based on the face amount of such Securities and, therefore, will be lower than the Purchase Price offered for the Securities to be purchased in the Offer.
The Offeror expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time or from time to time, regardless of whether or not the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase for the Offer have been satisfied, subject to applicable law, to extend the Expiration Date for the Offer, or to amend in any respect or to terminate the Offer, in each case by giving written or oral notice of such extension, amendment or termination to the Tender Agent.
