Domino's, Inc. Sets Purchase Price in Tender Offer for 10 3/8% Senior Subordinated Notes Due 2009
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - June 10, 2003 - Domino's, Inc. announced today the tender offer consideration and the total purchase price to be paid for its outstanding 10 3/8 % Senior Subordinated Notes due 2009 (the "Notes") that are validly tendered in the tender offer described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated May 28, 2003 and the related Consent and Letter of Transmittal (collectively, the "Tender Offer Documents"). The tender offer is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Tender Offer Documents, and is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Tuesday, June 24, 2003, unless extended.
The total purchase price to be paid for each validly tendered Note was determined using the yield of the 3% U.S. Treasury Note due January 31, 2004 (the reference U.S. Treasury Note) plus a fixed spread of 75 basis points. The yield on the reference U.S. Treasury Note, as calculated by J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on Tuesday, June 10, 2003, was 0.98%. Accordingly, the tender offer yield and the total purchase price per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, are 1.73% and $1,098.95, respectively. The tender offer consideration, which is payable to holders of Notes in respect of Notes tendered after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 10, 2003, the consent payment deadline, is equal to the total purchase price less the consent payment of $20.00, or $1,078.95 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Payment of the total purchase price or tender offer consideration, as applicable, for validly tendered Notes plus accrued but unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the date of payment, is expected to be made on Wednesday, June 25, 2003.
