YPF is offering the New Notes only to holders of the Old Notes, and will accept for exchange any and all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Old Notes. The exchange offer is subject to certain conditions set forth in the Pricing Supplement. Tenders of Old Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to the Expiration Date.
Holders of our Old Notes participating in the Exchange Offer will receive an amount of New Notes in principal amount equal to the amount of such accrued and unpaid interest, plus cash for any fractional portion of the New Notes, as described below.
YPF issued the original 8.875% Senior Notes due 2018, which have the same terms as the New Notes and will be fully fungible with the New Notes, in a principal amount of U.S.$500,000,000 on December 19, 2013 (the "Original 2018 Notes"). The aggregate principal amount of New Notes issued in exchange for Old Notes tendered in the exchange offer will be (i) increased by accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes, as described above, and then (ii) reduced by interest accrued on such New Notes from December 19, 2013 (as if they had been issued along with the Original 2018 Notes) up to but excluding the Settlement Date (as defined below), calculated based on the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes tendered. The total amount of New Notes to be issued to any tendering holder of Old Notes will be rounded down to the nearest U.S.$1,000. YPF will pay any fractional portion of the New Notes not received as a result of rounding down in cash through the Exchange Agent (as defined below). Interest on the New Notes will accrue from December 19, 2013.
The "Settlement Date" will be promptly after the Expiration Date and is expected to be the third business day after the Expiration Date, or as soon as practicable thereafter. On the Settlement Date, all holders of our Old Notes whose Old Notes are validly tendered, not validly withdrawn and accepted for exchange will receive the accrued and unpaid interest on these Old Notes from the last applicable interest payment date up to but excluding the Settlement Date, payable as described above in the form of New Notes.
U.S. Bank National Association is acting as the exchange agent (the "Exchange Agent") for the exchange offer. Persons with questions regarding the exchange offer should contact YPF's Investor Relations department at +54 11-5441-1215.
