·27 min read

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Petróleos Mexicanos ("PEMEX") announced today the pricing of global notes denominated in U.S. Dollars, and the commencement of liability management transactions consisting of 12 separate exchange offers targeting certain series of PEMEX outstanding notes with maturities ranging from 2024 to 2030 (the "Offers to Exchange") and six separate offers to purchase certain series of PEMEX outstanding notes with maturities ranging from 2044 to 2060 (the "Offers to Purchase" and together with the Offers to Exchange, the "Offers").

New Money Securities

The New Money Securities will constitute unsecured obligations of PEMEX and will be jointly and severally guaranteed by Pemex Exploración y Producción, Pemex Transformación Industrial and Pemex Logística, and their respective successors and assignees.

PEMEX intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the New Money Securities to pay the cash consideration to holders of notes validly tendered and accepted by PEMEX in the Offers.

PEMEX priced an issue of 6.700% Notes due 2032 (the "New Securities"), for an aggregate principal amount of U.S. $1,000,000,000 (the "New Money Securities"). The New Money Securities were issued at a price of 99.976%, plus accrued interest (if any) from December 16, 2021. Interest is payable on February 16 and August 16 of each year, commencing on August 16, 2022. The New Securities will mature on February 16, 2032.

Principal on the New Securities will be repaid in three installments on February 16, 2030, February 16, 2031 and at maturity. Principal payments shall be calculated as follows: the aggregate amount of each principal payment on the New Securities shall equal the principal amount outstanding as of any principal payment date, divided by the number of remaining principal installments from and including such principal payment date to and including the maturity of the New Securities. To the extent necessary, principal payments may be rounded down to the nearest whole number, with any difference being paid at maturity.

The Offers

The liability management transactions consist of (i) 12 separate Offers to Exchange PEMEX's outstanding securities in Acceptance Priority Levels 1 to 11 set forth in the table below for newly-issued New Securities and cash and (ii) six separate Offers to Purchase for cash PEMEX's outstanding securities in Acceptance Priority Levels 12 through 17 set forth in the table below (the outstanding securities targeted in the Offers to Exchange and Offers to Purchase, collectively, the "Old Securities"), in each case, plus Accrued Interest (as defined below):

(4)

Payable in cash per U.S. $1,000 principal amount of Old Securities validly tendered and accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable (the "Cash Consideration"). Eligible Holders whose Old Securities are validly tendered and accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, will receive Accrued Interest, if any, in cash, in addition to the Consideration (as defined below).

(5)

Payable in principal amount of New Securities per U.S. $1,000 principal amount of Old Securities validly tendered and accepted for exchange (the "New Securities Consideration").

(6)

For purposes of the Acceptance Priority Procedures and proration procedures, the 9.500% Global Guaranteed Bonds due 2027 and 9.500% Guaranteed Bonds due 2027 shall be considered as a single series subject to the same Acceptance Priority Level.

The Offers are being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer statement dated December 7, 2021 (the "Offer Statement" and together with the related eligibility letter, certification letter and the letter of transmittal, the "Offer Documents"), which sets forth in more detail the terms and conditions of the Offers.

The Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on January 5, 2022 unless earlier terminated or extended by PEMEX (such time and date with respect to each Offer, as it may be extended with respect to such Offer, the "Expiration Date"). Old Securities tendered may be withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 20, 2021 unless extended, but not thereafter.

Eligible Holders of Old Securities validly tendered on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 20, 2021 (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Early Participation Date") and accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, by PEMEX pursuant to the Offers will receive the applicable early participation consideration reflected in the table above (the "Early Participation Consideration"), which consists of the applicable Early New Securities Consideration, if any, and/or the applicable Cash Consideration for each series of Old Securities. The applicable Early Participation Consideration includes the applicable Early Participation Premium, which consists of (i) for each series of Old Securities in Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 11, U.S. $50 in principal amount of New Securities and (ii) for each series of Old Securities in Acceptance Priority Levels 12 through 17, an amount in cash equal to U.S. $50, in each case, per U.S. $1,000 principal amount of Old Securities (the "Early Participation Premium").

Eligible Holders of Old Securities validly tendered after the Early Participation Date and on or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, by PEMEX pursuant to the Offers will receive the late participation consideration (the "Late Participation Consideration" and, together with the Early Participation Consideration, the "Consideration") applicable to the relevant series of Old Securities, which is equal to the applicable Early Participation Consideration, less the applicable Early Participation Premium.

Eligible Holders will also receive an amount in cash (such amount "Accrued Interest") consisting of accrued and unpaid interest on Old Securities accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, in the Offers from, and including, the last interest payment date for each of the Old Securities to, but not including, the applicable settlement date of the Offers (the "Settlement Date"), together with additional amounts thereon, if any, and in the case of Old Securities accepted in any of the Offers to Exchange, less the interest accrued on the New Securities exchanged therefor from and including the settlement date of the offering of the New Money Securities, to the extent such interest accrued on such New Securities does not exceed the accrued and unpaid interest on such accepted Old Securities. If the interest accrued on such New Securities exceeds the accrued and unpaid interest on such accepted Old Securities, then the amount of Accrued Interest paid will be zero.

The New Securities to be delivered in the Offers to Exchange as part of the consideration are expected to have identical terms (other than issue date), be consolidated, form a single series and be fully fungible with the New Money Securities. The New Securities issued to "qualified institutional buyers" will have the same CUSIP and ISIN numbers as the New Money Securities issued pursuant to Rule 144A: CUSIP: 71643V AA3; ISIN: US71643VAA35. The New Securities issued to non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S will have temporary CUSIP and ISIN numbers during a 40-day distribution compliance period commencing on the applicable Settlement Date. Such temporary CUSIP and ISIN numbers will be announced prior to the applicable Settlement Date. Following the 40-day distribution compliance period, PEMEX expects that these New Securities will share the same CUSIP and ISIN numbers as the New Money Securities issued to non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S: CUSIP: P8000U AA7; ISIN: USP8000UAA71.

Following the Early Participation Date and at or prior to the Expiration Date, we will have the right to elect to accept the Old Securities validly tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date, provided that all conditions of the Offers have been satisfied or, where applicable, waived by us (the "Early Settlement Right"). If we exercise our Early Settlement Right, we expect to settle the Offers in respect of Old Securities validly tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date that are accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable (the "Early Settlement Date") promptly following the date on which we accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, such Old Securities (the "Early Acceptance Date"). Assuming that we exercise the Early Settlement Right and all conditions of the Offers have been satisfied, or where applicable, waived by us, we expect that the Early Settlement Date will occur no later than the third business day following the Early Participation Date.

For Old Securities that have been validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date (exclusive of Old Securities accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, on the Early Settlement Date, if any), and that are accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, we expect to settle such Old Securities promptly following the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date"). Assuming that such Final Settlement Date is not extended and all conditions of the Offers have been satisfied or, where applicable, waived by us, we expect that the Final Settlement Date will occur no later than the third business day following the Expiration Date.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Offers as described in the Offer Statement, if the exchange or purchase, as applicable, of all Old Securities validly tendered and accepted by us for exchange or purchase in the Offers would cause PEMEX to pay an aggregate Cash Consideration (including the Early Participation Premium, as applicable) plus Accrued Interest and estimated customary fees, costs and expenses incurred or to be incurred in connection with the New Money Offering and the Offers (which fees, costs and expenses we believe will not represent more than approximately 0.5% of the Maximum Cash Amount) ("Transaction Expenses"), in excess of U.S. $4.5 billion (the "Maximum Cash Amount"), then PEMEX will accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, Old Securities pursuant to the following Acceptance Priority Procedures and proration procedures:

  • if the exchange or purchase, as applicable, of all Old Securities tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date would cause us to pay an aggregate Cash Consideration (including the Early Participation Premium, as applicable) plus Accrued Interest and Transaction Expenses in excess of the Maximum Cash Amount, then the Offers will be oversubscribed at the Early Participation Date, and we will not accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, any Old Securities tendered after the Early Participation Date and will (assuming satisfaction or, where applicable, the waiver of the conditions to the Offers) accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, on the Early Acceptance Date (or, if there is no Early Acceptance Date, the Expiration Date, the Old Securities tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date pursuant to the acceptance priority procedures described below (the "Acceptance Priority Procedures"). If the Offers are not oversubscribed at the Early Participation Date and the exchange or purchase, as applicable, of all Old Securities validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for exchange or purchase would cause us to pay an aggregate Cash Consideration (including the Early Participation Premium, as applicable) plus Accrued Interest and Transaction Expenses in excess of the Maximum Cash Amount, then the Offers will be oversubscribed at the Expiration Date, and we will (assuming satisfaction or, where applicable, the waiver of the conditions to the Offers), accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, all Old Securities tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date and then accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, any Old Securities tendered after the Early Participation Date pursuant to the Acceptance Priority Procedures.

  • subject to the satisfaction of the conditions to the Offers and the priority of early tenders, we will accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, validly tendered Old Securities in the order of the related Acceptance Priority Level set forth in the table above, beginning with the lowest numerical value of Acceptance Priority Level first.

  • subject to the procedures described below for undersubscribed Offers by the Early Participation Date, if the aggregate Cash Consideration to be paid in exchange or purchase, as applicable, for all Old Securities corresponding to an Acceptance Priority Level validly tendered by such date, when added to the aggregate Cash Consideration to be paid in exchange or purchase, as applicable, for all Old Securities accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, corresponding to each higher Acceptance Priority Level (lower numerical value), if any, would cause us to pay an aggregate Cash Consideration (including the Early Participation Premium, as applicable) plus Accrued Interest and Transaction Expenses that does not exceed the Maximum Cash Amount, then we will accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, all such Old Securities of such series and will then apply the foregoing procedure to the next lower Acceptance Priority Level (next higher numerical value). If the condition described in the foregoing sentence is not met, we will accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, the maximum aggregate principal amount of tendered Old Securities of such series (on a prorated basis) such that the aggregate Cash Consideration paid in exchange or purchase, as applicable, for the series of Old Securities with the lowest Acceptance Priority Level (the highest numerical value) accepted, when considered together with the aggregate Cash Consideration paid in exchange or purchase, as applicable, for Old Securities with higher Acceptance Priority Levels (lower numerical values), plus Accrued Interest and Transaction Expenses, comes as close as possible to the amount of the Maximum Cash Amount without exceeding such amount.

  • tendered Old Securities with an Acceptance Priority Level lower than the Acceptance Priority Level that would cause us to pay an aggregate Cash Consideration (including the Early Participation Premium, as applicable) plus Accrued Interest and Transaction Expenses in excess of the Maximum Cash Amount will not be accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, provided that, tendered Old Securities at or before the Early Participation Date will be accepted for exchange or purchase, as applicable, in priority to other Old Securities tendered after the Early Participation Date, even if such Old Securities tendered after the Early Participation Date have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Old Securities tendered prior to the Early Participation Date.

If proration of a series of tendered Old Securities is required, we will determine the final proration factor as soon as practicable after the Early Participation Date or Expiration Date, as applicable, and will inform Eligible Holders of such series of Old Securities of the results of the proration. In the event proration is required with respect to a series of Old Securities, we will multiply the principal amount of each valid tender of such series of Old Securities by the applicable proration rate and round the resulting amount down to the nearest U.S. $1,000 principal amount in order to determine the principal amount of such tender that will be accepted pursuant to the applicable Offer. The excess principal amount of Old Securities not accepted from the tendering Eligible Holders will be promptly returned to such Eligible Holders. If, after applying such proration factor, any Eligible Holder would be entitled to a credit or return of a portion of tendered Old Securities of a series that is less than the authorized denominations, then, in our sole discretion, (i) all of the Old Securities of such series tendered by such Eligible Holder will be accepted without proration, (ii) a portion of the Old Securities of such series tendered by such Eligible Holder will be rejected such that only Old Securities of such series in the authorized denominations are credited or returned or (iii) none of the Old Securities of such series tendered by such Eligible Holder will be accepted.

PEMEX's obligation to accept for exchange or purchase, as applicable, the Old Securities of any series validly tendered pursuant to an Offer is conditioned on (i) the successful closing of the New Money Offering and receipt by PEMEX of the net proceeds therefrom on or prior to the applicable Settlement Date, and (ii) PEMEX receiving a capital injection, in cash, from the United Mexican States resulting in net proceeds sufficient to fund, together with the net proceeds from the New Money Offering, the aggregate Maximum Cash Amount due to Eligible Holders of Old Securities tendered in the Offers on or prior to the applicable Settlement Date. In addition, the Offers are conditioned on the satisfaction of other conditions described in the Offer Statement, including, in the case of Offers to Exchange, the tax fungibility condition, as fully described in the Offer Statement. The consummation of an Offer is not conditioned on the consummation of the other Offers. Each Offer is independent of the other Offers, and PEMEX may withdraw or modify any Offer without withdrawing or modifying other Offers. PEMEX reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to waive any and all conditions to any Offer.

If PEMEX terminates any Offer with respect to one or more series of Old Securities, it will give prompt notice to the Information, Tender and Exchange Agent and all Old Securities tendered pursuant to such terminated Offer will be returned promptly to the tendering Eligible Holders thereof. With effect from such termination, any Old Securities blocked in The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") will be released.

The security codes associated with the registered series of Old Securities were generated in connection with exchange offers conducted for such Old Securities pursuant to registration rights agreements that were executed in connection with the offering of such Old Securities.

Global Bondholder Services Corporation is acting as the Information, Tender and Exchange Agent for the Offers. Questions or requests for assistance related to the Offers or for additional copies of the Offer Documents may be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at +1 (866) 924-2200 (toll free) or (212) 430-3774 (collect).

PEMEX has retained BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, and HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. to act as dealer managers in connection with the Offers (the "Dealer Managers").

Eligible Holders are advised to check with any bank, securities broker or other intermediary through which they hold Old Securities as to when such intermediary would need to receive instructions from such Eligible Holder in order for that Eligible Holder to be able to participate in, or withdraw their instruction to participate in, an Offer, before the deadlines specified herein and in the Offer Documents. The deadlines set by any such intermediary and DTC for the submission and withdrawal of tender instructions will also be earlier than the relevant deadlines specified herein and in the Offer Documents.

The Offers to Exchange are being made only (1) to holders of Old Securities who are "qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act in a private transaction in reliance upon the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Section 4(a)(2) thereof or (2) outside the United States, to holders of Old Securities other than "U.S. persons" (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) and who are not acquiring such New Securities for the account or benefit of a U.S. person, in offshore transactions in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act, and who are non-U.S. qualified offerees (as defined under "Transfer Restrictions on the New Securities" in the Offer Statement).

The New Money Securities and the New Securities to be issued pursuant to the Offers have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state or other jurisdiction's securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The New Money Securities and the New Securities to be issued pursuant to the Offers will be issued with registration rights.

This announcement is for informational purposes only. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or buy or the solicitation of an offer to buy or sell any securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of any securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

The Offers are being made solely pursuant to the Offer Documents. The Offers are not being made to holders of Old Securities in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Offers to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Offers will be deemed to be made on behalf of PEMEX by the Dealer Managers for the Offers or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.

The New Money Securities and New Securities are not intended to be offered, or otherwise made available to and should not be offered or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area ("EEA"). For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, "MiFID II"); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended, the "Insurance Distribution Directive"), where the customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II. Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the "PRIIPs Regulation") for offering the New Money Securities and New Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA, has been prepared and therefore offering New Money Securities and New Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.

The New Money Securities and New Securities are not intended to be offered or otherwise made available to, and should not be offered or otherwise made available to, any retail investor in the United Kingdom. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("EUWA"); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended, the "FSMA") and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement the Insurance Distribution Directive (EU), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA. Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (the "UK PRIIPs Regulation") for offering the New Money Securities and New Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the United Kingdom has been prepared and therefore offering the New Money Securities and New Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the United Kingdom may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation.

In the United Kingdom, this communication is for distribution only to persons who (i) have professional experience in matters relating to investments falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (as amended, the "Order"), (ii) are persons falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) ("high net worth companies, unincorporated associations etc.") of the Order or (iii) are persons to whom an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity (within the meaning of Section 21 of the FSMA) in connection with the issue of any New Money Securities and New Securities may otherwise lawfully be communicated or caused to be communicated (all such persons together being referred to as "relevant persons"). This communication is directed only at relevant persons and must not be acted on or relied on by persons who are not relevant persons. Any investment or investment activity to which this communication relates is available only to and will be engaged in only with relevant persons.
