BOGOTÁ, Colombia, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GNB Sudameris S.A. ("GNB") announced today that it is extending the Expiration Date of the previously announced offer to purchase any and all of the outstanding 7.50% Subordinated Notes due 2022 issued by GNB (the "Notes"), for a purchase price for the Notes equal to the Purchase Price plus Accrued Interest (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) (the "Tender Offer"). The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in the offer to purchase, dated September 18, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal") and notice of guaranteed delivery (the "Notice of Guaranteed Delivery" and, together with the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal, the "Offer Documents").
The expiration date applicable to the Tender Offer, previously scheduled for 5.00 p.m., New York City Time, on September 24, 2020, has been extended to 5.00 p.m., New York City Time, on October 1, 2020 (such time and date, as it may be further extended, the "Expiration Date"), unless further extended or earlier terminated. The deadline for holders to withdraw their validly tendered Notes has also been extended to 5.00 p.m., New York City Time, on October 1, 2020, unless further extended or earlier terminated. The deadline for delivery of a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery has also been extended to 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on October 5, 2020, unless further extended or earlier terminated, and the settlement date and guaranteed delivery settlement date applicable to the Tender Offer are now currently expected to be October 6, 2020.
