Altos Hornos de Mexico S.A.B. de C.V. Commences Mailing Of Disclosure Statement For April 18, 2016 Meeting Of Recognized Creditors

Feb 16, 2016

. de C.V. Commences Mailing Of Disclosure Statement For April 18, 2016 Meeting Of Recognized Creditors AHMSA well positioned for long-term growth upon lifting of suspension of paymentsSignifies important step toward lifting of suspension of payments proceeding February 16, 2016 -- MONCLOVA, COAHUILA,Mexico, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Altos Hornos de Mxico S.A.B. de C.V. ("AHMSA"), the leading integrated steel producer in Mexico, today announced that the company will begin mailing to the holders of its three series of notes and certain Recognized Creditors a Disclosure Statement for its meeting of Recognized Creditors (the "Creditors Meeting") scheduled for April 18, 2016 at 10:00am Central Time in Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico. The Disclosure Statement describes AHSMA's general payment agreement ("the Plan"). The Plan provides Recognized Creditors and Noteholders with payment in full, in Mexican pesos, of all Recognized Claims on the third anniversary of the lifting of the suspension of payments proceeding. In addition, Eligible Creditors have the option to exchange a portion of those payment rights for cash and AHMSA's common shares, as described in the Disclosure Statement. The Disclosure Statement is being provided voluntarily by AHMSA and is not an official part of the suspension of payments proceeding. At the Creditors Meeting, Recognized Creditors and Noteholders will consider and vote on the adoption of the Plan, which will provide for the lifting of the suspension of payments proceeding. AHMSA believes that the Plan will receive the requisite creditor consent as a result of ballots already filed with the First Civil Court of First Instance in the Judicial District of Monclova (the "SP Court") and the commitment of certain creditors to vote in favor of the Plan. The vote of AHMSA's affiliates will be disregarded for purposes of determining whether or not the Plan is adopted. AHMSA stated, "Securing approval of the Plan is one of the significant, final steps required to lift the suspension of payments, which AHMSA has been operating under. The successful lifting will position AHMSA to enhance its long-term potential, providing the company with the ability to realize greater financial flexibility, to maximize the rationalization of its capital structure, and to compete and grow more effectively. The lifting will also enable AHMSA to further enhance its long-term value proposition, establishing a financially strong platform from which the company can execute its operational initiatives and strategic priorities. " The company continued, "As Mexico's largest integrated steel producer, AHMSA will be uniquely positioned to capitalize on favorable growth trends in the domestic energy and manufacturing industries, including auto manufacturing, petroleum as well as natural gas pipeline projects, and infrastructure construction. Moreover, AHMSA can be an important sparkplug for the Mexican economy over the long-term. We are Mexico's only producer of plate, tin plate, and tin free steel, and our recently completed, self-funded El Fenix project added 1.1MM tons of plate capacity. Our efforts support Mexico's manufacturing hub and its ability to attract foreign direct investment, thereby increasing Mexico's global economic competitiveness. Clearly, a strong and vibrant Mexican economy means job creation and thereby, greater opportunities to improve quality of life. "Approval of the Plan and the subsequent lifting of the suspension of payments will benefit all AHMSA stakeholdersincluding the state of Coahuila, where AHMSA is the state's largest employer. Customers, business partners, and employees will benefit by being associated with a company that is better able to expand and capitalize on growth opportunities, both domestically and internationally. With strong support from a significant number of Recognized Creditors already in place, we are confident that the Plan approval process is readily moving towards a consensual resolution," AHMSA concluded. The Plan was negotiated with creditors that beneficially own a majority of the Recognized Claims against AHMSA. The suspension of payments proceeding will be lifted upon the adoption by the affirmative vote of both the holders of at least a majority of the aggregate value of outstanding Recognized Claims (as of April 18, 2016) and not less than one-third in number of the Recognized Creditors. If the Plan is approved by the Requisite Creditor Consent at the Creditors Meeting, the Plan will remain subject to approval by the SP Court.
