ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Domino's, Inc. announced today the total purchase price and tender offer consideration to be paid for its outstanding 8-1/4% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2011 (the "Notes") that are validly tendered in the tender offer described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated February 7, 2007, 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 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on Friday, March 9, 2007, unless extended.
The total purchase price to be paid for each validly tendered Note was determined using the yield of the 3.875% U.S. Treasury Note due July 31, 2007 (the reference U.S. Treasury Note), plus a fixed spread of 50 basis points. The yield on the reference U.S. Treasury Note, as calculated by J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on Friday, February 23, 2007, was 5.091%. Accordingly, the tender offer yield and the total purchase price per $1,000 principal amount of Notes are 5.591% and $1,048.50, respectively. The total purchase price is payable to holders of Notes in respect of Notes tendered by the Consent Payment Deadline, namely 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 23, 2007. Holders of Notes tendered after the Consent Payment Deadline and before the tender expiration date receive the tender offer consideration, namely the total purchase price less the consent payment of $20.00, or $1,028.50 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 Friday, March 9, 2007.
