DFC Global Corp. Announces Withdrawal of Proposed Offering of Senior Notes and Termination of Tender Offer

BERWYN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 22, 2013-- (NASDAQ:DLLR) DFC Global Corp., a leading international diversified financial services company serving primarily unbanked and under-banked consumers for over 30 years, today announced that it has decided not to proceed with the previously-announced Senior Notes offering by its wholly owned subsidiaries National Money Mart Company (“NMM”) and Dollar Financial UK Holding PLC at this time, due principally to current market conditions.

As a result of its decision not to proceed with its senior notes offering, the Company also announced that NMM is terminating its previously announced cash tender offer for its outstanding 10.375% Senior Notes due 2016 (CUSIP Numbers 637004AC6 / 637004AA0) (the “2016 Notes”). NMM is terminating the tender offer because it has determined that the financing condition will not be satisfied. Any 2016 Notes that have been tendered will be promptly returned to holders. The Company had opportunistically sought to refinance the 2016 Notes with long-term low fixed rate capital from the withdrawn Senior Notes offering.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. The tender offer was made solely pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal, dated November 15, 2013, as amended by this press release.
