SAO PAULO, Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cosan Overseas Limited ("Cosan Overseas") announced today that it has amended the terms of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") any and all of its outstanding 8.25% Perpetual Notes (the "Notes") fully, unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by Cosan S.A. Industria e Comercio and Cosan Lubrificantes e Especialidades S.A. to extend the Expiration Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated November 17, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase")) to 5:00 p.m. Central European Time on January 30, 2015. Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date will be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). Consequently, the Final Settlement Date shall fall three business days after the Expiration Date, or as promptly as practicable thereafter. All other terms and conditions of the Tender Offer remain unchanged.
Holders who have tendered their Notes pursuant to the Offer are being given the opportunity to withdraw their tendered Notes and revoke their consents to certain proposed amendments to the related indenture until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 30, 2014 (the "Withdrawal Deadline"). Holders who validly withdraw their Notes and thereby revoke their consents prior to the Withdrawal Deadline ("Withdrawing Holders") will not receive any consideration for their Notes. Withdrawing Holders who wish to re-tender their Notes and re-deliver their consents in order to receive the Tender Offer Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) must validly re-tender their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date. The right to withdraw tendered Notes and the right to revoke consents will expire at the Withdrawal Deadline except under certain limited circumstances. Holders who do not withdraw their tendered Notes prior to the Withdrawal Deadline, or Withdrawing Holders who re-tender their Notes prior to the Expiration Date, will be deemed to have consented to this amendment to the Offer. If the Tender Offer is consummated, holders who validly tendered their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m. Central European Time, on December 1, 2014, and who do not withdraw their tendered Notes prior to the Withdrawal Deadline will receive the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).
