Verizon Announces Pricing of Tender Offer for 8.95% Notes Due 2039

NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Communications Inc. ("Verizon") (NYSE, NASDAQ: VZ) today announced the pricing of its previously announced tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 8.95% Notes due 2039 (CUSIP No. 92343VAR5) (the "Notes"). 

On November 2, 2012, Verizon commenced the Tender Offer to purchase Notes in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 2, 2012, relating thereto (the "Offer to Purchase"). 

For each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted, the holders will receive $1,864.63 (the "Purchase Price").  The Purchase Price represents a yield to maturity equal to 3.75%, which was the yield to maturity of the 3.000% U.S. Treasury reference security due May 15, 2042 as displayed on Bloomberg Reference Page "BBT1" as of 2:00 p.m., New York City Time, on Friday, November 9, 2012 (the "Reference Yield") plus a fixed spread of 100 basis points.  The Purchase Price and the Reference Yield were calculated in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.  Holders must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes, and have their Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, at or prior to the Expiration Time (as defined below) in order to be eligible to receive the Purchase Price. 

Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the date on which such Notes are purchased.

The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on Friday, November 9, 2012, unless extended or earlier terminated by Verizon (the "Expiration Time").  Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to the Expiration Time.

Upon the terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, payment for Notes accepted for purchase will be made promptly after the Expiration Time.

The Tender Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.  Subject to applicable law, Verizon may also terminate the Tender Offer at any time at or before the Expiration Time in its sole discretion.

Verizon has retained Goldman, Sachs & Co., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and J.P.
