LIMA, Peru, Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cementos Pacasmayo S.A.A. (CPAC), a sociedad anónima abierta incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Peru ("Cementos Pacasmayo" or the "Company"), hereby announces the commencement of its offer to purchase (the "Tender Offer") for cash up to U.S.$150,000,000 aggregate principal amount (subject to increase by Cementos Pacasmayo, the "Maximum Tender Amount") of its outstanding 4.50% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "Notes"), upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated November 26, 2018 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Offer to Purchase") and the accompanying Letter of Transmittal dated November 26, 2018 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Letter of Transmittal" and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the "Offer Documents").

Cementos Pacasmayo's acceptance for purchase of the Notes is subject to the Maximum Tender Amount. If the aggregate principal amount of Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would exceed the Maximum Tender Amount, the amount of Notes accepted for purchase may be subject to proration with the proration factor depending on the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered. If the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Date equals, or exceeds, the Maximum Tender Amount, holders who tender Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase. If the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Date does not exceed the Maximum Tender Amount, holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Date may be subject to proration, but holders who validly tender Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will not be subject to proration. Cementos Pacasmayo reserves the right, in its sole discretion, subject to applicable law, to increase the Maximum Tender Amount without extending or otherwise reinstating the withdrawal rights of Holders; however, there can be no assurance Cementos Pacasmayo will do so.

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m. (New York City time) on December 21, 2018 (such date and time, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Date"), unless earlier terminated. Holders must validly tender, and not validly withdraw, their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on December 7, 2018 (such date and time, as it may be extended, the "Early Tender Date") to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as defined herein) for such Notes. Holders must validly tender their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date to be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration (as defined herein) for such Notes. Holders who validly tender their Notes will be eligible to receive, as applicable, the Total Consideration and the Tender Offer Consideration, plus Accrued Interest (as defined herein), which will be payable in cash. Tendered Notes may be validly withdrawn from the Tender Offer at or prior to, but not after, the Early Tender Date.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, the consideration for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be U.S.$975.00 (the "Tender Offer Consideration"). Holders of Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the Tender Offer Consideration plus the early tender premium for each U.S.$1,000 of U.S.$30.00 (the "Early Tender Premium" and, together with the Tender Offer Consideration, the "Total Consideration"). Holders of Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, but on or prior to the Expiration Date, and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the Tender Offer Consideration, which will not include any Early Tender Premium. No tenders will be valid if submitted after the Expiration Date. All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest (and additional amounts, if any) on those Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the applicable settlement date ("Accrued Interest").

The Tender Offer is subject to various conditions, including a condition that Cementos Pacasmayo shall have entered into, and borrowed in Peruvian soles under, an unsecured loan financing, on terms satisfactory to the Company, providing net proceeds that are at least sufficient, after giving effect to any other applicable use of proceeds therefrom, to pay the Total Consideration and Accrued Interest for all the tendered Notes (up to the Maximum Tender Amount), plus all fees and expenses payable in connection with the Tender Offer (the "Financing Condition").

The Company may modify or terminate the Tender Offer and may extend the Early Tender Date, the Expiration Date or any payment date with respect to the Tender Offer.

If the Financing Condition is satisfied or waived prior to the Expiration Date, the Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any point following the Early Tender Date and before the Expiration Date, to accept for purchase and pay for any Notes tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Date. Payment for Notes that are validly tendered by the holders and accepted for purchase by the Company but not purchased prior to the Expiration Date will be made on the final settlement date, which is anticipated to occur on the second business day after the Expiration Date.

The Tender Offer is open to all registered holders (each, individually, a "Holder" and, collectively, the "Holders") of the Notes. The Tender Offer commences on the date of the Offer to Purchase and will expire on the Expiration Date, unless extended or earlier terminated by Cementos Pacasmayo. No tenders will be valid if submitted after the Expiration Date. If a nominee holds your Notes, such nominee may have an earlier deadline for accepting the offer. You should promptly contact the nominee that holds your Notes to determine its deadline.

Acceptance for tenders of any Notes may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Maximum Tender Amount to be exceeded. Any Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer that are not accepted and purchased by Cementos Pacasmayo as a result of the operation of the proration provisions applicable to the Tender Offer shall be promptly returned to the relevant tendering Holders following the Expiration Date.

Notwithstanding any other provision of the Tender Offer, Cementos Pacasmayo's obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, any Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer, is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the Financing Condition and the General Conditions (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). The conditions to the Tender Offer are for the sole benefit of Cementos Pacasmayo and may be asserted by Cementos Pacasmayo regardless of the circumstances giving rise to any such condition (including any action or inaction by Cementos Pacasmayo). Cementos Pacasmayo reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to waive any and all conditions of the Tender Offer, at or prior to the Expiration Date.

Withdrawal rights with respect to the Notes will terminate on the Early Tender Date, unless extended pursuant to applicable law. Accordingly, following the Early Tender Date, any Notes validly tendered (whether before, on or after the Early Tender Date) may no longer be validly withdrawn. For the withdrawal of a tendered Note to be valid, such withdrawal must comply with the procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase.

Subject to applicable law and the terms set forth in the Offer to Purchase, Cementos Pacasmayo reserves the right with respect to the Tender Offer to: (i) extend or otherwise amend the Early Tender Date, the Expiration Date or any payment date; (ii) increase the Maximum Tender Amount without extending or otherwise reinstating withdrawal rights of Holders except as required by law; (iii) waive or modify in whole or in part any and all conditions to the Tender Offer; (iv) modify or terminate the Tender Offer; and (v) otherwise amend the Tender Offer in any respect. In the event of the termination of the Tender Offer, the Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer and not previously accepted and purchased will be promptly returned to the tendering Holders.

If you do not tender your Notes or if you tender Notes that are not accepted for purchase, they will remain outstanding. If Cementos Pacasmayo consummates the Tender Offer, the trading market for your outstanding Notes may be significantly more limited. For a discussion of this and other risks, see "Certain Significant Considerations—The Tender Offer may adversely affect the market value, and reduce the liquidity of any trading market, of the Notes" in the Offer to Purchase.
