SÃO PAULO, Sept. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Embraer S.A. ("Embraer") (NYSE: ERJ) announced today that its indirect subsidiary, Embraer Netherlands Finance B.V. ("Embraer Finance"), has commenced an offer to purchase (each offer, a "Tender Offer" and collectively, the "Tender Offers") for cash up to US$250,000,000 (the "Maximum Tender Amount") aggregate principal amount of outstanding (1) 5.150% notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") issued by Yaborã Indústria Aeronáutica S.A. ("Yaborã") and guaranteed by Embraer and (2) 5.696% notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes" and together with the 2022 Notes, the "Notes") issued by Embraer Overseas Limited and guaranteed by Yaborã and Embraer.
The following table sets forth the acceptance priority level and consideration for each series of the Notes:
Payment per US$1,000
Principal Amount of Notes
Rule 144A: 29081YAD8/
Excludes accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date ("Accrued Interest"), which will be paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration or Total Consideration, as applicable.
Includes the Early Tender Payment.
The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 5, 2020, unless extended by Embraer Finance (such time and date, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Date"). Holders of the Notes who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 21, 2020, unless extended by us (such time and date, as it may be extended, the "Early Tender Date") will be eligible to receive the Total Consideration for such Notes, which includes the Early Tender Payment, plus Accrued Interest. Holders of the Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date in the manner described herein will not be eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment and will therefore only be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration, plus Accrued Interest. Notes that have been validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers may be validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Date but not thereafter, except as may be required by applicable law (as determined by us).
If the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Expiration Date exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, a prorated amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by holders of the Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date will be accepted for purchase.
The "Total Consideration" for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will include an early tender payment (the "Early Tender Payment") as set forth in the table above. Holders of the Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will not be entitled to receive the Early Tender Payment and will therefore be entitled to receive, for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase, the tender offer consideration as set forth in the table above (the "Tender Offer Consideration").
Holders of the Notes that have validly tendered and not validly withdrawn their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase shall, if we so elect, receive the applicable Total Consideration, plus Accrued Interest, for each US$1,000 principal amount of such accepted Notes on the early settlement date, which date will be two business days following the Early Tender Date but before the Expiration Date (the "Early Settlement Date"). If we do not, in our sole discretion, elect to pay for such tendered Notes prior to the Expiration Date, then the Early Settlement Date will be the same as the final settlement date, which date will be two business days following the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date" and, together with the Early Settlement Date, each a "Settlement Date").
Embraer Finance's obligation to purchase Notes in the Tender Offers is conditioned on the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including our completion of a new debt financing on satisfactory terms and conditions. The Tender Offers are not conditioned upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of Notes of such series or of the other series. However, the Tender Offers are subject to the Maximum Tender Amount. In the event of a termination of a Tender Offer, neither the applicable consideration nor Accrued Interest will be paid or become payable to the holders of the applicable series of Notes, and the Notes tendered pursuant to such Tender Offer will be promptly returned to the tendering holders. Embraer Finance has the right, in its sole discretion, to amend or terminate the Tender Offers at any time.
Embraer Finance reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase or decrease the Maximum Tender Amount at any time, subject to compliance with applicable law.
The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase, dated September 8, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase"). Copies of the Offer to Purchase are available to holders of the Notes from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender agent and information agent for the Tender Offers (the "Tender Agent and Information Agent").

Embraer Finance reserves the right, in its sole discretion, not to accept any tenders of Notes for any reason. Embraer Finance is making the Tender Offers only in those jurisdictions where it is legal to do so.

This press release is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an offer to sell any securities. Each Tender Offer is being made solely by means of the Offer to Purchase. The Tender Offers are not being made to holders of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In those jurisdictions where the securities, blue sky or other laws require any tender offer to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Tender Offers will be deemed to be made on behalf of Embraer Finance by the Dealer Managers or one or more registered brokers or dealers licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including those related to the Tender Offers.
