TULSA, Okla. –
Unit Corporation (NYSE – UNT) (the “Company” or “Unit”) announced that it has extended the Early Tender Date for its previously announced offer to exchange (the “Exchange Offer”) any and all of its outstanding 6.625% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2021 (CUSIP No. 909218AB5 / ISIN US909218AB56) (the “Old Notes”) for newly issued 10.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) and 7.000% Junior Secured Notes due 2025 (the “Junior Secured Notes” and, together with the Senior Secured Notes, the “New Notes”), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the prospectus relating to the Exchange Offer (the “Prospectus”) included in Amendment No. 2 to the Registration Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Registration Statement”).
Extension of the Early Tender Date
The Company is extending the Early Tender Date of the Exchange Offer. The Early Tender Date was previously extended to 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on Friday, November 29, 2019 and will now be further extended to be the Expiration Date of the Exchange Offer, which is 11:59 P.M., New York City Time, on Friday, December 13, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company. All references to the Early Tender Date in the Prospectus are hereby amended such that the Early Tender Date will be the same date and time as the Expiration Date. Accordingly, holders who tender their Old Notes prior to such time will receive the Early Exchange Consideration, which means for each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered (and not withdrawn) prior to the Expiration Date, either $735 principal amount of Senior Secured Notes or $1,000 principal amount of the Junior Secured Notes, depending upon the election of the holder. Other than the extension of the Early Tender Date described herein, the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer remain as set forth in the Prospectus.
As of 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on November 29, 2019, approximately $162.5 million of Old Notes had been tendered in the Exchange Offer.
The Company will pay a soliciting dealer fee equal to $2.50 for each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered for exchange and not validly withdrawn under the Exchange Offer to retail brokers that are appropriately designated by their clients to receive this fee; provided that such fee will only be paid with respect to the first $200,000 aggregate principal amount of Old Notes exchanged by an individual beneficial holder.
