MEXICO CITY, Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

New Notes Offering

The United Mexican States ("Mexico") announced today the commencement of a global offering (the "New Notes Offering") of its global notes to be denominated in U.S. dollars due 2028 (the "2028 New Notes") and its global notes to be denominated in U.S. dollars due 2048 ("2048 New Notes," and together with the 2028 New Notes, the "New Notes").  The New Notes offered may include New Notes that may be issued and sold to certain tendering holders in the Tender Offer (as described below).  BBVA Securities Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated will serve as Joint Lead Underwriters for the New Notes Offering.

The 2048 notes will be consolidated and form a single series with, and be fungible with, the outstanding U.S. $1,880,000,000 4.600% Global Notes due 2048 previously issued by Mexico.

The New Notes Offering is being made only by means of a preliminary prospectus supplement and an accompanying base prospectus.  Copies of the preliminary prospectus supplement and the related prospectus for the New Notes Offering may be obtained by contacting: BBVA Securities Inc., by calling +1 (212) 728-2446 (U.S. toll free), J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, by calling +1 (866) 846-2874 (U.S. toll free), or Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, by calling +1 (800) 294-1322 (U.S. toll free).

Application will be made to have the New Notes listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and admitted to trading on the Euro MTF Market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

Tender Offer

Mexico also announced today that it has commenced an offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") its outstanding notes of the series set forth in the table below (collectively, the "Old Notes" and each, a "series" of Old Notes) in an aggregate principal amount of all series of Old Notes that will not result in an aggregate Purchase Price for all such series that exceeds an amount determined by Mexico in its sole discretion (the "Old Notes Maximum Purchase Amount").  Mexico will purchase notes of each series of Old Notes in an aggregate principal amount for such series that will not result in an aggregate Purchase Price for such series that exceeds an amount determined by Mexico in its sole discretion (the "Maximum Purchase Amount").  The Tender Offer is made on the terms and subject to the conditions contained in the Offer to Purchase, dated January 3, 2018 (the "Offer to Purchase"), including the pricing of the issue of the New Notes in an amount and on terms and subject to conditions acceptable to Mexico, which is expected to occur today.  All capitalized terms used but not defined under the heading "Tender Offer" in this communication have the respective meanings specified in the Offer to Purchase.

The tender period (the "Tender Period") will commence at open of market on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, and, unless extended or earlier terminated by Mexico in its sole discretion, the Tender Period will expire for Non-Preferred Tenders at 12:00 noon, New York City time, and, for Preferred Tenders, at 4:00 p.m., New York City time, on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.

Mexico expects to announce the Maximum Purchase Amount, the aggregate Purchase Price of Preferred and Non-Preferred Tenders of each series of the Old Notes that have been accepted and whether any proration has occurred on Thursday, January 4, 2018.  The settlement of the Tender Offer is scheduled to occur on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 (the "Tender Offer Settlement Date") and is subject to change without notice.

The purchase price to be paid for the 2021 Notes that are tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer will be the fixed price set forth in the table below.  The purchase price to be paid for the Old Notes of each series, other than the 2021 Notes, that are tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase, based on (i) the U.S. Treasury Rate (as defined herein) for such series, which is a yield to maturity based on the price of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security identified for such series in the table below and (ii) the Fixed Spread for such series set forth in the table below.  Mexico will announce the price to be paid for each series of Old Notes at or around 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.  Holders of the Old Notes participating in the Tender Offer will also receive any accrued and unpaid interest on their Old Notes up to (but excluding) the Settlement Date ("Accrued Interest").

 (1) The Dealer Managers will calculate the applicable U.S. Treasury Rate (as defined herein) using the bid-side price of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security on Bloomberg Page PX1 at or around the time of pricing of the New Notes, as further described below.

 (2) Per U.S. $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes tendered and accepted for purchase.  Holders will also receive Accrued Interest on Old Notes tendered and accepted for purchase.  Hypothetical prices are calculated for illustration purposes, using prices for Reference U.S. Treasury Securities at 4:00 p.m. on January 2, 2018.


During the Tender Period, a holder of Old Notes may place orders to tender Old Notes ("Tender Orders") only through any of the Dealer Managers.  If a holder does not have an account with a Dealer Manager and desires to tender its Old Notes, it may do so through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company, other financial institution or other custodian, that has an account with a Dealer Manager.  Holders will NOT be able to submit tenders through Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V., Clearstream Banking, société anonyme or the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") system.  Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated as the billing and delivering bank for the Tender Offer (in such capacity, the "Billing and Delivering Bank") will consolidate all Tender Orders and accept Old Notes for purchase pursuant to the terms and conditions in the Offer to Purchase on behalf of Mexico, subject to proration as described in the Offer to Purchase, on Thursday, January 4, 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.  Mexico may subject each series of Old Notes to different amounts of proration in its sole discretion.  Failure to deliver Old Notes on time may result, in Mexico's sole discretion, in any of the following: (i) the cancellation of your tender and your becoming liable for any damages resulting from that failure, and/or (ii) the delivery of a buy-in notice for the purchase of such Old Notes, executed in accordance with customary brokerage practices for corporate fixed income securities, and/or (iii) in the case of Preferred Tenders, the cancellation of your tender and your remaining obligated to purchase your allocation of New Notes in respect of your related Indication of Interest.  

To the extent proration occurs, with respect to any series of Old Notes, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated will accept Old Notes of such series with appropriate adjustments to avoid purchase of Old Notes in principal amounts other than Permitted Tender Amounts (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).  Each holder submitting an Indication of Interest and tendering Old Notes of any series shall be deemed to represent to Mexico, the Dealer Managers and the Billing and Delivering Bank that such holder held, from the time of its submission of its Tender Order through the Expiration Time, at least the amount of Old Notes of each such series as are being tendered.

All Old Notes that are tendered pursuant to Tender Orders and are accepted by Mexico will be purchased by the Billing and Delivering Bank on behalf of Mexico.  Only the Billing and Delivering Bank will be liable for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for Old Notes validly tendered and accepted as instructed by Mexico.  Mexico will not be liable under any circumstances for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for any Old Notes tendered in the Offer by any holder.  There is no letter of transmittal for the Tender Offer.  Old Notes held through DTC must be delivered for settlement no later than 3:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Tender Offer Settlement Date.  If a holder holds Old Notes through Euroclear or Clearstream, the latest process it can use to deliver its Old Notes is the overnight process, one day prior to the Settlement Date; holders may not use the optional daylight process.  Holders will not have withdrawal rights with respect to any tenders of Old Notes in the Tender Offer.  Old Notes accepted for purchase will be settled on a delivery versus payment basis in accordance with customary brokerage practices for corporate fixed income securities.

Mexico may, but is not required to, issue and sell New Notes to holders who validly tender their Old Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer and place firm orders for New Notes during the Tender Period (as well as investors that are not participating in the Tender Offer).  If Mexico determines to issue and sell New Notes to such holders, the scheduled settlement date for the New Notes is expected to occur on Thursday, January 11, 2018 (the "Offering Settlement Date").  Any New Notes issued to tendering holders in the Tender Offer as described above will be consolidated and form a single series with, and be fully fungible with, the other New Notes of the same series, to be issued and sold pursuant to the offering of New Notes on the Offering Settlement Date.

The Tender Offer is subject to Mexico's right, at its sole discretion and subject to applicable law, to extend, terminate, withdraw, or amend the Tender Offer at any time.  Each of the Dealer Managers and Mexico reserves the right, in the sole discretion of each of them, not to accept tenders for any reason.

The Offer to Purchase may be downloaded from the Information Agent's website at www.dfking.com/ums or obtained from the Information Agent, D. F. King & Co., Inc., at ums@dfking.com or from any of the Dealer Managers.

Important Notice

The distribution of materials relating to the New Notes Offering and the Tender Offer and the transactions contemplated by the New Notes Offering and the Tender Offer may be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions.  Each of the New Notes Offering and the Tender Offer is void in all jurisdictions where it is prohibited.  If materials relating to the New Notes Offering or the Tender Offer come into your possession, you are required by Mexico to inform yourself of and to observe all of these restrictions.  The materials relating to the New Notes Offering or the Tender Offer, including this communication, do not constitute, and may not be used in connection with, an offer or solicitation in any place where offers or solicitations are not permitted by law.  If a jurisdiction requires that the New Notes Offering or the Tender Offer be made by a licensed broker or dealer and a Dealer Manager or any affiliate of a Dealer Manager is a licensed broker or dealer in that jurisdiction, the New Notes Offering or the Tender Offer, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be made by the Dealer Manager or such affiliate on behalf of Mexico in that jurisdiction.  Owners who may lawfully participate in the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms thereof are referred to as "holders."

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities nor will there be any sale of these securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.  The offering of these securities will be made only by means of the preliminary prospectus and the accompanying prospectus supplement and prospectus.

The Tender Offer is made in Germany to existing holders of the Old Notes only.

The prospectus supplement does not constitute a Prospectus Directive-compliant prospectus in accordance with the German Securities Prospectus Act (Wertpapierprospektgesetz) and does therefore not allow any public offering in the Federal Republic of Germany ("Germany") or any other member state of the European Economic Area which has implemented the Prospectus Directive pursuant to § 17 and § 18 of the German Securities Prospectus Act. No action has been or will be taken in the Federal Republic of Germany that would permit a public offering of the New Notes, or distribution of a prospectus, a prospectus supplement or any other offering material relating to the New Notes and that, in particular, no securities prospectus (Wertpapierprospekt) within the meaning of the German Securities Prospectus Act or any other applicable laws of Germany has been or will be published within the Federal Republic of Germany, nor has the prospectus supplement been filed with or approved by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht) for publication within the Federal Republic of Germany. Accordingly, any offer or sale of the New Notes or any distribution of offering material within the Federal Republic of Germany may violate the provisions of the German Securities Prospectus Act.

There has been no offer, sale or delivery and there will be no offer, sale or delivery of any Notes in Germany other than in accordance with provisions of the German Securities Prospectus Act; and any offering material relating to the New Notes will be distributed in the Federal Republic of Germany only under circumstances that will result in compliance with the applicable rules and regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany. The prospectus supplement is strictly for use of the person who has received it. It may not be forwarded to other persons or published in Germany.

The Tender Offer and the Offer Documents do not constitute a prospectus under Norwegian law and have not been filed with or approved by the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority, the Oslo Stock Exchange or the Norwegian Registry of Business Enterprises, as the Tender Offer and Offer Documents have not been prepared in the context of a public offering of securities in Norway within the meaning of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act or any Regulations issued pursuant thereto.  The Tender Offer will only be directed to qualified investors as defined in the Norwegian Securities Regulation section 7-1, or in accordance with other relevant exceptions from the prospectus requirements.  Accordingly, the Tender Offer and the Offer Documents may not be made available to the public in Norway nor may the Offer to Purchase  otherwise be marketed and offered for sale to the public in Norway.

No legal, financial, tax or any other kind of advice is hereby being provided.

None of the offer materials related to the New Notes Offering or Tender Offer have been approved or registered in the administrative registries of the Spanish Securities Market Commission (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores). Consequently, the securities may not be offered, sold or distributed in Spain except in circumstances which do not constitute a public offer of securities in Spain within the meaning of Article 35 of the restated text of the Securities Markets Act approved by Royal Legislative Decree 4/2015, dated 23 October (Real Decreto Legislativo 4/2015, de 23 de octubre, por el que se aprueba el texto refundido de la Ley del Mercado de Valores), Royal Decree 1310/2005 of 4 November (Real Decreto 1310/2005 de 4 de noviembre), or otherwise in reliance on an exception from registration available thereunder.

The prospectus supplement is not intended to constitute an offer or solicitation to purchase or invest in the New Notes described therein in Switzerland, except as permitted by law. The New Notes may not be publicly offered, sold or advertised, directly or indirectly, in, into or from Switzerland and will not be listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange or on any other exchange or regulated trading facility in Switzerland.

Neither the prospectus supplement nor any other offering or marketing material relating to the New Notes constitutes a prospectus as such term is understood pursuant to article 652a or article 1156 of the Swiss Code of Obligations or a listing prospectus within the meaning of the listing rules of the SIX Swiss Exchange or any other regulated trading facility in Switzerland or a simplified prospectus or a prospectus as such term is defined in the Swiss Collective Investment Scheme Act, and neither the prospectus supplement nor any other offering or marketing material relating to the New Notes may be publicly distributed or otherwise made publicly available in Switzerland.

Any investment or investment activity to which the Offer to Purchase relates is available only to relevant persons and will be engaged in only with relevant persons. The New Notes will only be available to, and any invitation, offer or agreement to subscribe, purchase or otherwise acquire the New Notes will be engaged in only with, relevant persons.
