CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 26, 2013) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Superior Plus Corp. ("Superior") (TSX:SPB) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Superior Plus LP ("Superior LP") has elected to terminate its offer to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding $150.0 million, 8.25% Senior Unsecured Debentures due October 27, 2016 (the "Debentures"), the consent solicitation to effect certain amendments to the Debentures (and the trust indenture pursuant to which they were issued) and the proposed private placement of notes of Superior LP ("Notes") to fund the purchase of the Debentures.
"Given the implications of the recent volatility in the debt markets and the fact that Superior does not currently need to refinance the Debentures, Superior has determined there is not sufficient benefit to pursue refinancing the Debentures at this point in time. The successful completion of our recent equity financing has provided us with considerable financial flexibility," said Wayne Bingham, Executive Vice-President and CFO.
Superior LP will not accept any Debentures tendered for purchase or any accompanying consents delivered, and Superior LP will not amend the terms of the Debentures and the existing trust indenture governing the terms of the Debentures. Holders that tendered Debentures pursuant to the Offer will have such Debentures returned as soon as practicable via a credit to the appropriate account at CDS.
