IRVING, Texas, Dec. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Vistra Corp. (NYSE: VST) ("Vistra") announced today the results to date of its previously announced cash tender offers (the "Tender Offers") to purchase a portion of Vistra's outstanding 3.550% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 ("3.550% 2024 Notes"), 4.875% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 ("4.875% 2024 Notes") and 5.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2025 ("5.125% 2025 Notes" and, together with the 3.550% 2024 Notes and 4.875% 2024 Notes, the "Notes") up to an aggregate principal amount that will not result in an aggregate purchase price that exceeds $750,000,000 (the "Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount"), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated December 11, 2023 (the "Offer to Purchase").

According to information received from Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the depositary and information agent for the Tender Offers, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 22, 2023 (the "Early Tender Deadline"), Vistra had received valid tenders from the registered holders (the "Holders") of the Notes that were not validly withdrawn as set forth in the table below.

No representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of the CUSIP Numbers listed in the Offer to Purchase (as defined above) or printed on the Notes.  They are provided solely for the convenience of the Holders of the Notes.


Subject to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount and proration, the principal amount of each series of Notes that is purchased in the Tender Offers will be determined in accordance with the applicable Acceptance Priority Level (in numerical priority order with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 3 being the lowest) specified in this column.


As of December 22, 2023.

The determination of the Total Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) will occur at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on December 26, 2023. The early settlement date is expected to occur on January 2, 2024.

Although the Tender Offers are scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 10, 2024, because the aggregate principal amount of all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Deadline exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, Vistra does not expect to accept for purchase any tenders of Notes after the Early Tender Deadline. Any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will be promptly credited to the account of the registered holder of such Notes maintained at the Depository Trust Company and otherwise returned in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.

Full details of the terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase, which were sent by Vistra to Holders of the Notes. Holders of the Notes are encouraged to read these documents as they contain important information regarding the Tender Offers.
