NEXT Properties announces extension of the Expiration Date, the granting of withdrawal rights and payment of a Cash Payment Consideration in connection with its debt exchange offers for Fibra Uno’s senior unsecured notes

MEXICO CITY, March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — TRUST 7401, a trust formed under the laws of the United Mexican States (“NEXT Properties” or the “New Issuer“) hereby announces the extension of the Expiration Date of the four separate offers to exchange announced on November 13, 2023, for four series of currently outstanding senior notes issued by Trust 1401, a trust formed under the laws of the United Mexican States (“Fibra Uno“) for new senior notes to be issued by NEXT Properties, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the exchange offer memorandum dated November 13, 2023 (the “Exchange Offer Memorandum“). Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.

As further described in the Exchange Offer Memorandum, the consummation of each Exchange Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of, among other things, the condition that Trust 2401, a trust formed under the laws of the United Mexican States (“Fibra NEXT“), consummate its initial public offering, as described further under the “Conditions of the Exchange Offers” section in the Exchange Offer Memorandum, NEXT Properties has decided to extend the Expiration Date from 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 1, 2024, to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 16, 2024, in order to give Fibra NEXT additional time to obtain a favorable memorandum (confirmación de criterio) from the Mexican Tax Administration Service (Servicio de Administración Tributaria). NEXT Properties expects that Fibra NEXT will be able to obtain such a favorable memorandum shortly.

Additionally, NEXT Properties has determined that it shall grant withdrawal rights by providing Holders who have tendered their FUNO Notes through the date hereof the right to withdraw such tendered FUNO Notes at any time from the date hereof until on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, March 8, 2024, unless extended by the New Issuer (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Withdrawal Deadline“). Subject to applicable law, Holders may withdraw tendered FUNO Notes at any time from the date hereof until the Withdrawal Deadline, but Holders may not withdraw tendered FUNO Notes after the Withdrawal Deadline.

As previously announced on January 25, 2024, Holders who validly tendered or may validly tender their FUNO Notes (and do not validly withdraw such FUNO Notes) and whose FUNO Notes are accepted for exchange by the New Issuer will be eligible to receive, in addition to the Total Consideration (as described in the Exchange Offer Memorandum) or Tender Consideration (as described in the Exchange Offer Memorandum), as applicable, the Cash Payment Consideration (as defined in the aforementioned announcement; see https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/next-properties-announces-extension-of-the-expiration-date-the-granting-of-withdrawal-rights-and-payment-of-a-cash-payment-consideration-in-connection-with-its-debt-exchange-offers-for-fibra-unos-senior-unsecured-notes-302045292.html).

Given that each (i) Exchange Offer has been fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, the results of which were described in our press release dated November 28, 2023, and (ii) the withdrawals of FUNO Notes made by Holders from January 25, 2024 until January 29, 2024 (period in which NEXT Properties granted withdrawal rights to Holders of FUNO Notes who had tendered their FUNO Notes; see website link above) did not result in any Exchange Offer becoming under-subscribed, Holders of FUNO Notes who validly tender FUNO Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their FUNO Notes accepted for exchange unless the Maximum Exchange Amount is not met at any time prior to the new Expiration Date or  NEXT Properties increases the applicable Maximum Exchange Amount prior to the new Expiration Date, which NEXT Properties is entitled to do in its sole discretion. There can be no assurance that NEXT Properties will increase any Maximum Exchange Amount. The aggregate principal amount of New Notes issued to each participating holder for all FUNO Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for exchange by the New Issuer will be rounded down, if necessary, to US$200,000 or the nearest whole multiple of US$1,000 in excess thereof. This rounded amount will be the principal amount of New Notes you will receive, and no additional cash will be paid in lieu of any principal amount of New Notes not received as a result of rounding down. If proration causes the New Issuer to return less than the minimum denomination, then the New Issuer will either accept all or reject all of the tendered amount.

Provided that the conditions set forth in the Exchange Offer Memorandum are met (including General Conditions and the condition that Fibra NEXT consummates its initial public offering), and subject to the Maximum Exchange Amount for each Exchange Offer, the New Issuer expects to issue the New Notes in exchange for FUNO Notes tendered and accepted for exchange in the Exchange Offers promptly after the new Expiration Date (the “Final Settlement Date“). NEXT Properties has determined that, as of the date hereof, it does not expect to have an “Early Settlement Date”.

The consummation of each Exchange Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as set forth in the Exchange Offer Memorandum, including General Conditions and the condition that Fibra NEXT, consummate its initial public offering, as described further under the “Conditions of the Exchange Offers” section in the Exchange Offer Memorandum. In addition, the New Issuer reserves the right to terminate or withdraw the Exchange Offers at any time and for any reason before any FUNO Notes are accepted for exchange, including if any of the other conditions described under “Conditions of the Exchange Offers” in the Exchange Offer Memorandum are not satisfied. The New Issuer may (i) extend, amend, terminate or withdraw any of the Exchange Offers without extending, terminating or withdrawing any other Exchange Offer, and (ii) increase any Maximum Exchange Amount without extending the Withdrawal Deadline or otherwise reinstating withdrawal rights of Eligible Holders of FUNO Notes, except as required by law.

If FUNO Notes are validly tendered by an Eligible Holder (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted by the New Issuer for exchange pursuant to the Exchange Offers, such Eligible Holder will not be entitled to receive accrued and unpaid interest in cash paid by the New Issuer on such FUNO Notes on the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable, since interest on the New Notes will accrue from the last interest payment date for the corresponding existing FUNO Notes and will be paid by the New Issuer on the first interest payment date of the corresponding series of New Notes received by such holder in exchange for its FUNO Notes.

None of the Exchange Offers nor the New Notes have been approved or recommended by any regulatory authority. Furthermore, no regulatory authority has been requested to confirm the accuracy or adequacy of the Exchange Offer Memorandum. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense. The New Notes will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act“), or any state securities laws. Accordingly, the New Notes will be subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws, pursuant to registration or exemption therefrom.
