DynCorp International Inc. Announces Preliminary Results of Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation; Minimum Tender Condition Satisfied

MCLEAN, Va. (May 23, 2016) – DynCorp International Inc. (“DynCorp International”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings” and, together with DynCorp International, the “Company”) announced today that as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 20, 2016 (the “Early Delivery Time” and the “Withdrawal Deadline”), holders of its 10.375% Senior Notes due 2017 (the “Existing Notes”) had validly tendered and not withdrawn approximately $412.7 million aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes, or approximately 90.7% of the outstanding Existing Notes, in connection with the previously announced exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) for the Existing Notes.

As of the Early Delivery Time, the Company had received the required consents to amend the indenture governing the Existing Notes (the “Existing Notes Indenture”) pursuant to the Consent Solicitation. However, such amendments to the Existing Notes Indenture will not become operative unless and until the Exchange Offer is consummated.

Consummation of the Exchange Offer is conditioned upon, among other things, the valid tender and acceptance of at least 90% of the Existing Notes (the “Minimum Condition”). Because the Minimum Condition has been fulfilled based on the Existing Notes tendered before the Early Delivery Time, the Company expects that the Exchange Offer will be consummated and the amendments to the Existing Notes Indenture will become operative approximately three business days after the Expiration Time (as defined below).

The Exchange Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 10, 2016 (as such date and time may be extended, the “Expiration Time”).

Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Offer, Existing Notes validly tendered, and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Withdrawal Deadline, may not be withdrawn, and the related consents may not be revoked. Existing Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offering memorandum and consent solicitation statement, dated May 2, 2016 (the “Offering Memorandum”) and the accompanying letter of transmittal and consent, dated May 2, 2016 (the “Letter of Transmittal”), after the Early Delivery Time and at or before the Expiration Time, DynCorp International is offering the “Exchange Offer Consideration,” consisting of the following:

  • a pro rata portion of $45.0 million cash (the “Cash Amount”) based on the total principal amount of Existing Notes validly tendered prior to the Expiration Time and not validly withdrawn prior to the Withdrawal Deadline and accepted by DynCorp International (such pro rata portion of the Cash Amount for each $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes accepted, the “Pro Rata Cash Payment”); and
  • a principal amount of 11.875% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2020 (the “New Notes”) equal to $970 less the Pro Rata Cash Payment.

Only holders of Existing Notes may participate in the Exchange Offer. Holders wishing to receive a copy of the Offering Memorandum and the related Letter of Transmittal and related materials should contact the information and exchange agent for the Exchange Offer, D.F. King & Co., Inc., at (866) 796-7182 (Toll-Free), (212) 269-5550 (banks and brokers) or dyncorpintl@dfking.com.

This press release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities. The Exchange Offer is being made, and the New Notes are being offered and issued, in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), provided under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and the exemption from the registration requirements of state securities laws and regulations provided under Section 18(b)(4)(D) of the Securities Act. DynCorp International has not made any arrangements for and has no understanding with any broker, dealer, salesperson, agent or any other person regarding the solicitation or recommendation of tenders hereunder and has no contract, arrangement or understanding relating to, and will not, directly or indirectly, pay any commission or other remuneration to any such person. No broker, dealer, salesperson, agent or any other person is engaged or authorized to express any statement, opinion, recommendation or judgment with respect to the relative merits and risks of the Exchange Offer. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made only pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum and the Letter of Transmittal.

None of DynCorp International, Holdings, the supporting holders party to the Support Agreement, dated April 30, 2016, the trustee under the Existing Notes, the trustee under the New Notes, the information and exchange agent or any of their respective affiliates make any recommendation as to whether any holder of Existing Notes should exchange Existing Notes for New Notes in the Exchange Offer, and none of them has authorized any person to make any such recommendation. Holders are urged to carefully evaluate all information in the Offering Memorandum and all documents incorporated therein by reference, and the accompanying Letter of Transmittal, consult their own investment and tax advisors and make their own decisions about whether to tender Existing Notes, and, if they wish to tender Existing Notes, the principal amount of Existing Notes to tender.
