IRVING, Texas, Feb. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Vistra Corp. (NYSE: VST) ("Vistra" or the "Company") announced today the results to date of its previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase any and all outstanding rights (the "TRA Rights") for the benefit of registered holders ("Holders") to receive payments from the Company related to certain tax benefits that were issued pursuant to that certain Tax Receivable Agreement, dated Oct. 3, 2016, by and between the Company and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, a New York limited liability trust company, as transfer agent, as amended and restated by the Amended and Restated Tax Receivable Agreement, dated as of Dec. 29, 2023, by and between the Company and Equiniti Trust Company, LLC, a New York limited liability company, as transfer agent ("Equiniti"), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated Jan. 31, 2024 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the associated letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal").

According to information received from Equiniti, the Transfer Agent and Paying Agent for the Tender Offer, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Feb. 28, 2024 (the "Early Tender Date"), Vistra had received valid tenders from the Holders that were not validly withdrawn of (i) 55,056,931 TRA Rights that were accepted for purchase as of Feb. 13, 20024 (the "Early Tendered TRA Rights") and (ii) 2,235,020 TRA Rights that were accepted for purchase as of Feb. 28, 2024 (the "Final Tendered TRA Rights" and together with the Early Tendered TRA Rights, the "Tendered TRA Rights"). The settlement date for the Early Tendered TRA Rights occurred on Feb. 16, 2024, and the settlement date for the Final Tendered TRA Rights is expected to occur on Mar. 4, 2024.

Upon purchase of the Final Tendered TRA Rights, approximately 98% of the previously outstanding TRA Rights will have been repurchased by the Company in the Tender Offer and in a series of privately negotiated transactions that occurred in December 2023 and January 2024. The cumulative TRA repurchase transactions are expected to yield a substantially positive financial return, while simplifying the Company's capital structure.
