MEXICO CITY, Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Industrias Unidas, S.A. de C.V.  (“IUSA” or the “Company”), a Mexican diversified industrial company, today announced that it has extended the expiration date of its pending exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) for any and all of its outstanding Series A and Series B 11.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2016 (the “Old Notes”) for its New Series A and New Series B 9.00% Senior Secured Notes due 2023 (the “New Notes”). 

The Company is extending the expiration date of the Exchange Offer from 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, on October 7, 2016 to 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on October 24, 2016. 

Epiq Corporate Restructuring, the information and exchange agent for the Exchange Offer (the “Information and Exchange Agent”) has advised the Company that as of 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, on October 7, 2016, 92.7% of Old Notes had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Exchange Offer. 

The complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer are described in the Information Memorandum dated September 12, 2016 (the “Exchange Information Memorandum”), copies of which may be obtained by eligible holders of the Old Notes by contacting the Information and Exchange Agent at 777 Third Avenue, 12th Floor, New York, New York 10017 Attn: IUSA Processing, +1(646) 282-2500 or (866) 734-9393, tabulation@epiqsystems.com (please reference “IUSA” in the subject line).

The New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements, and will therefore be subject to substantial restrictions on transfer.
