Multi Packaging Solutions, Inc. (“MPS”) announced today that it is seeking consent to proposed amendments, as revised by new proposed amendments, to certain provisions of the indenture (the “Indenture”) governing its 8.500% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”), as well as an increased consent fee as set forth below. The new proposed amendments are in addition to and supplement the proposed amendments in the previously announced consent solicitation related to the Notes.
MPS has increased the consent fee payable to consenting holders from $10.00 for each $1,000 in principal amount of the Notes for which consents are validly delivered and unrevoked on or prior to the expiration time to $20.00 for each $1,000 in principal amount of the Notes for which consents are validly delivered and unrevoked on or prior to the expiration time, as set forth below.
The additional proposed amendments would further revise Section 4.09(b)(i) of the Indenture related to permitted indebtedness to reduce the amount of dollar-equivalent debt thereunder (based on current exchange rates). The proposed amendments, as revised, shall constitute the “Proposed Amendments” under the consent solicitation statement, dated November 21, 2013, previously sent to noteholders (the “Consent Solicitation Statement”). MPS has provided a supplement to the Consent Solicitation Statement to the noteholders, dated December 4, 2013 (“Supplement No. 1”), detailing the revised Proposed Amendments.
The adoption of the Proposed Amendments requires the consent of holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the then outstanding Notes voting as a single class.
The consent solicitation is being made solely to qualified institutional buyers who are noteholders of record as of 5:00 p.m. on November 20, 2013 and on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement. MPS has also extended the solicitation period. The solicitation will now expire at 5:00 pm New York time on December 12, 2013. MPS may, in its sole discretion, terminate, extend or amend the consent solicitation at any time as described in the Consent Solicitation Statement.

King & Co., Inc. by calling toll free in the US at (800) 829-6551, or for banks and brokers at (212) 269-5550, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
