DENVER, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CoBank, a cooperative bank serving agribusinesses, rural infrastructure providers and Farm Credit System associations throughout the United States, today announced the early tender results for its modified "Dutch Auction" cash tender offer (the "Offer") for up to $150 million aggregate principal amount (the "Tender Cap") of its 7.875% Subordinated Notes due 2018 (the "Subordinated Notes").  As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 28, 2012 (the "Early Tender Date"), approximately $95.3 million aggregate principal amount of the Subordinated Notes had been tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Offer.

Withdrawal rights for the Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 28, 2012. The Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 12, 2012, unless extended.

CoBank today also announced the determination of the dollar range of consideration offered in the Offer.  Pursuant to the terms of the Offer, the reference yield, as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 28, 2012, for the 0.750% U.S. Treasury Note due October 31, 2017, was 0.629%.  On the basis of such reference yield, the range of total consideration offered in the Offer is from $1,248.48 to $1,294.49 per $1,000 principal amount of Subordinated Notes ("Total Consideration"). Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer, the Total Consideration, which includes an early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Subordinated Notes (the "Early Tender Premium"), will be payable in respect of Subordinated Notes validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase. Holders whose Subordinated Notes are tendered after the Early Tender Date and on or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 12, 2012 (the "Expiration Date"), will be entitled to receive the tender offer consideration ("Tender Offer Consideration"), namely, an amount equal to the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Premium. The range of Tender Offer Consideration offered in the Offer is from $1,218.48 to $1,264.49 per $1,000 principal amount of Subordinated Notes.
