EchoStar Corporation Announces Expiration of Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations Relating to Existing Notes
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- EchoStar Corporation (Nasdaq: SATS) ("EchoStar"), a global, fully integrated communication and content delivery leader and provider of technology, spectrum, engineering, manufacturing, networking services, television entertainment and connectivity bolstered by its merger with DISH Network Corporation ("DISH"), today announced the expiration and termination of its previously announced offers to exchange (i) any and all of the 0% Convertible Notes due 2025 (the "DISH Network 2025 Notes") issued by its subsidiary DISH and (ii) any and all of the 3.375% Convertible Notes due 2026 issued by DISH (the "DISH Network 2026 Notes," and together with the DISH Network 2025 Notes, the "Existing Notes"), each for 10.00% Senior Secured Notes due 2030 to be issued by EchoStar Corporation (the "EchoStar Notes") and the concurrent consent solicitations, in each case, pursuant to the terms described in a preliminary prospectus and consent solicitation statement, dated January 12, 2024.
Each exchange offer and consent solicitation was conditioned upon, among other things, at least a majority of the outstanding principal amount of the applicable series of Existing Notes being validly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the applicable exchange offer (the "Minimum Tender Condition"). The exchange offers and consent solicitations expired immediately following 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 9, 2024 (the "Expiration Date"). As of the Expiration Date, holders of the Existing Notes had not tendered sufficient Existing Notes to meet the Minimum Tender Condition with respect to either exchange offer. Accordingly, EchoStar terminated the exchange offers and consent solicitations following the Expiration Date.
Because the Minimum Tender Condition was not satisfed as of the Expiration Date, EchoStar will not accept any Existing Notes tendered for exchange, and all Existing Notes tendered pursuant to the exchange offers will be promptly returned to their holders. No consideration will be paid or become payable to holders of the Existing Notes who tendered their Existing Notes in the exchange offers.
This press release is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale of any securities in any jurisdiction where such offering or sale would be unlawful.
