MISSISSAUGA, Sept. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - Temple Hotels Inc.

  4. PERMITTING Temple to complete the Initial Partial Redemption (as defined below) without further notice or communication to Debentureholders and to complete the Additional Partial Redemptions (as defined below).

Temple will redeem $2,258,200 of the principal amount of Debentures outstanding on September 30, 2017 (the "Initial Partial Redemption"), which represents approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding Debentures. Temple has also committed to redeem an additional 5% of the currently issued and outstanding principal amount of Debentures on each of September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2019 (the "Additional Partial Redemptions"). Each of the Initial Partial Redemption and the Additional Partial Redemptions will be for a cash payment equal to the principal amount of such redemption plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding the date of the redemption.

Subject to final approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"), the effective date of the Amendments will be on the date that Temple enters into a second further supplemental trust indenture with the debenture trustee which shall give effect to the Amendments. It is anticipated that Temple will enter into the second further supplemental indenture with the debenture trustee effective September 29, 2017.

Forward looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to, the expected Initial Partial Redemption and Additional Partial Redemptions and the expected effective date of the Amendments. These forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by management in light of their experiences and their perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors they believe are appropriate in the circumstances. Debentureholders are cautioned not to put undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which are not a guarantee of performance and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to that the Amendments will not be successfully completed for any reason and the risk that, if completed, Temple will not have sufficient funds to fund the Initial Partial Redemption or the Additional Partial Redemptions or will not be able to pay the interest and/or repay the principal amount outstanding under the Debentures when due. Many of such risks and uncertainties are outside the control of Temple and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In making such forward-looking statements, management has relied upon a number of material factors and assumptions, including with respect to general economic and financial conditions, interest rates, exchange rates, equity and debt markets, business competition, changes in government regulations or in tax laws, acts and omissions of third parties, and the ability of Temple to obtain approval for the Amendments (including approval from the TSX). Such forward-looking statements should, therefore, be construed in light of such factors and assumptions.
