NEW YORK, June 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTAI Aviation Ltd. (NASDAQ: FTAI), a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company” or “FTAI”) announced today the early tender results of the previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase for cash up to $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount (the “Tender Cap”) of Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC’s (“FTAI LLC”) outstanding 9.750% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “2027 Notes”), on the terms and conditions set forth in FTAI LLC’s Offer to Purchase, dated June 3, 2024, as amended on June 3, 2024 and June 17, 2024 (the “Offer to Purchase”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Offer to Purchase.

According to D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender and information agent for the Tender Offer, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 18, 2024 (the “Extended Early Tender Deadline”), $269,093,000 aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2027 Notes were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.

(2) Per $1,000 principal amount of 2027 Notes accepted for purchase. Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their 2027 Notes and whose 2027 Notes are accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer will also be paid accrued and unpaid interest from and including the interest payment date immediately preceding the applicable settlement date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.

The withdrawal deadline for the Tender Offer was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2024 (the “Withdrawal Deadline”). Neither the Withdrawal Deadline nor the Extended Early Tender Deadline have been extended. Accordingly, previously tendered 2027 Notes may not be withdrawn, subject to applicable law. The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 5, 2024 (the “Extended Expiration Time”), unless extended or earlier terminated by FTAI LLC.

The settlement date for 2027 Notes validly tendered as of the Extended Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase is expected to occur on June 21, 2024 (the “Early Payment Date”). On the Early Payment Date, FTAI LLC will pay the total consideration of $1,029 per $1,000 principal amount of 2027 Notes accepted for purchase plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Payment Date. Holders validly tendering 2027 Notes after the Extended Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Extended Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the tender offer consideration, which represents the total consideration less the early tender payment, plus accrued and unpaid interest from and including the interest payment date immediately preceding the settlement date for such 2027 Notes to, but not including, such settlement date. 2027 Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn.

The Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase. The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase and remain unchanged.
