(Teekay Offshore or the Partnership) (NYSE:TOO) announced today that it, with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Teekay Finance Corp., has commenced a cash tender offer and consent solicitation (the Offer) to purchase any and all of its outstanding 6.00% Senior Notes due 2019 (the Notes), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated as of June 12, 2018 (the Offer to Purchase) and the related letter of transmittal.
The Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 10, 2018, unless extended (the Expiration Time). Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Notes and provide their consents prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 2, 2018, unless such date is extended or the offer is earlier terminated (the Early Tender and Consent Deadline), will be entitled to receive the total consideration of $1,025, payable in cash for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for repayment, which includes an early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for payment. Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Notes after the Early Tender and Consent Deadline will be entitled to receive the total consideration of $995, payable in cash for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for payment. Accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the settlement date will be paid in cash on all validly tendered and accepted Notes. The settlement date for all Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender and Consent Deadline is expected to be July 3, 2018, and the settlement for Notes tendered on or after the Early Tender and Consent Deadline is expected to occur on July 11, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of the Financing Condition described below.
Holders tendering their Notes together with the related consents will be deemed to have delivered their consent to certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes, which will eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default and related provisions. Tendered Notes may not be withdrawn and consents may not be revoked after 5:00 p.m., New York City time on July 2, 2018, unless such date is extended. Following receipt of consents of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes, Teekay Offshore will execute a second supplemental indenture effecting the proposed amendments.

The Offer is not conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered. Teekay Offshore may amend, extend, or terminate the Offer in its sole discretion.
