PR Newswire

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Petróleos Mexicanos (“PEMEX“) announces today the final results of its previously announced offers to exchange (the “Exchange Offers“) two series of its outstanding long-term maturity bonds due 2044 and 2046 (the “Old Bonds“) for newly issued 6.350% Bonds due 2048 (the “New Bonds due 2048“), and related offers to purchase for cash (the “Retail Tender Offers” and together with the Exchange Offers, the “Offers“). PEMEX also announces the closing of its previously announced offering of U.S.-dollar denominated global notes (the “New Money Offering“).

Closing of New Money Offering


PEMEX’s offering of U.S.$2,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.350% Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes“) and U.S.$1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.350% Bonds due 2048 (the “New Money 2048 Bonds“, and together with the 2028 Notes, the “New Money Securities“) closed today, February 12, 2018. The New Money 2048 Bonds have identical terms, and are notes of the same series as, the New Bonds due 2048 (together the “2048 Bonds“).

Exchange Offers

The Exchange Offers were made pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum dated February 1, 2018 (as amended and supplemented, the “Offering Memorandum“), and the accompanying eligibility letter and notice of guaranteed delivery.

The Exchange Offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 7, 2018 and settled today, February 12. 2018 (the “Settlement Date“). Upon the closing of the New Money Offering, the New Money Offering Condition and the Tax Fungibility Condition (each as defined in the Offering Memorandum) were satisfied. All conditions to the Exchange Offers were therefore satisfied by the Settlement Date.

The table below provides the aggregate principal amount of each series of validly tendered Old Bonds (including pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures) that PEMEX accepted for exchange and the aggregate principal amount of the applicable series of New Bonds due 2048 issued in connection with the Exchange Offers:

(1) Holders of Old Bonds participating in the Retail Tender Offers were required to certify that they were Retail Tender Offer Qualified Holders (as defined below). The principal amount accepted reflects the final determination by PEMEX with respect to a number of submissions that were rejected on the basis of a reasonable belief that the relevant Old Bonds were tendered by holders who were not eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers.

PEMEX paid in aggregate U.S.$4,208,285 as the Tender Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) for the Old Bonds accepted in the Retail Tender Offers, including those validly tendered through the guaranteed delivery procedures. In addition to the Tender Consideration, the total amount of accrued and unpaid interest paid by PEMEX in respect of all Old Bonds accepted for purchase was U.S.$21,493.86.

Holders that were either (i) QIBs or (ii) persons outside the United States who were non-”U.S. persons” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act), and who were Non-U.S. Qualified Offerees, were not eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers. All other holders of Old Bonds were eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers (such other holders, the “Retail Tender Offer Qualified Holders“). Holders of Old Bonds participating in the Retail Tender Offers were required to certify that they were Retail Tender Offer Qualified Holders.

Global Bondholder Services Corporation also acted as the Information Agent and the Tender Agent for the Retail Tender Offers. Questions or requests for assistance related to the Retail Tender Offers may be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (866) 470-4500 (toll free) or (212) 430-3774 (collect).

The 2028 Notes and the 2048 Bonds are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the 2028 Notes and the 2048 Bonds or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the 2028 Notes and the 2048 Bonds or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.
