Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning assigned to them in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement.
AG International has extended each of the Early Participation Date and the Withdrawal and Revocation Date from the previously announced 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on November 12, 2019 to 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on November 15, 2019 (the "Early Participation Date"). The extended Early Participation Date and Withdrawal and Revocation Date is two business days following the November 13, 2019 deadline for the receipt, by purchasers of the Notes, of subscription agreements from the Issuer confirming final allocation of the Notes in connection with the debt financing described in the private placement memorandum that is referred to in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement (the "Debt Financing").
Noteholders of the accepted Notes who tendered their Notes prior to the Early Participation Date will receive the Total Consideration set forth in the table below, which includes the Early Participation Payment of U.S.$50.00 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount, plus Accrued Interest.

Tenders of Notes made prior to the Early Participation Date and made with a Premium Identifier Code (as defined below) will receive an additional premium payment of U.S.$22.50 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes (the "Premium Payment"), which is not reflected in the table above.

In addition, a Noteholder that participates in the Debt Financing, and purchases at least an equal aggregate principal amount of notes in connection with such debt financing as the aggregate principal amount of Notes that such Noteholder tenders pursuant to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation, which will be identified by a premium identifier code, will be entitled to receive the Premium Payment of U.S.$22.50 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn).
Concurrently with the Tender Offer, the Issuer is soliciting consents to the Indenture in order to, among other things, (i) eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants, (ii) reduce the minimum notice period required in connection with the redemption of the Notes from 30 days to three business days for any Notes that remain outstanding after the Tender Offer, and (iii) permanently release the collateral securing the Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"). Adoption of the Proposed Amendments requires the consent of the Noteholders of at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount outstanding of the Notes and, in the case of the amendment to release all of the collateral securing the Notes, of at least 75% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes.
The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 pm, New York City time, on November 22, 2019, unless the Tender Offer is extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Date"). Under the terms of the Tender Offer, Noteholders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Participation Date, but on or before the Expiration Date, will receive only the Tender Consideration of U.S.$952.50 per U.S.$1,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered, plus Accrued Interest, which does not include the Early Participation Payment of U.S.$50.00 per $1,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered that is payable to holders who tender on or prior to the Early Participation Date..
