  • "Principal Amount Outstanding" above gives effect to the exchange of approximately $364 million principal amount of 2022 Notes and approximately $246 million principal amount of 2023 Notes by institutional investors on December 6, 2017 for approximately $382 million principal amount of Private Exchange Second Lien Notes (as defined below) and approximately $85 million of our new 3½% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024, pursuant to negotiated exchange agreements.
  • All Old Notes that are tendered for exchange in an Exchange Offer on or before the Early Participation Time (as defined below) will have priority over Old Notes that are tendered for exchange after the Early Participation Time, even if such Old Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Old Notes tendered on or before the Early Participation Time.
  • For each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes.
  • In addition to the Exchange Consideration or Total Exchange Consideration, as applicable, the Company will also pay in cash accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the Initial Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date on the Old Notes tendered and accepted in the Exchange Offers as described in the Offering Memorandum.
  • Includes Early Participation Premium.
  • For each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 20, 2017 (as it may be extended, the "Early Participation Time"), Eligible Holders will be eligible to receive the "Total Exchange Consideration" set forth in the table above, which includes the "Early Participation Premium." The Company currently expects the initial Settlement Date to be on or about December 22, 2017 (the "Initial Settlement Date").  For each $1,000 in principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered after the Early Participation Time, Eligible Holders will be eligible to receive only the "Exchange Consideration" set forth in the table above.  The Exchange Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on January 5, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the "Expiration Time").  The Final Settlement Date, if necessary, is currently expected to occur on or about January 10, 2018 (the "Final Settlement Date" and together with the Initial Settlement Date, the "Settlement Date").

    The New Notes will be senior to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness that the Company may incur, including any Old Notes that remain outstanding after the consummation of the Exchange Offers.  The New Second Lien Notes will be issued as "additional notes" under the indenture pursuant to which the Company previously issued approximately $382 million aggregate principal amount of new 9¼% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2022 (the "Private Exchange Second Lien Notes"). The $182 million principal amount of New Second Lien Notes being offered in the exchange offers represents the maximum principal amount of second lien debt that the Company currently has capacity to issue in exchange for, or to purchase, Old Notes under the applicable terms of the indentures governing its existing 9% and 9¼% second lien notes.  The Company currently expects the New Second Lien Notes to be issued in a "qualified reopening," and, if so, the New Second Lien Notes will be fungible with, and trade under the same CUSIP as, the Private Exchange Second Lien Notes.  The New Convertible Senior Notes are convertible into the Company's common stock at any time, at the option of the noteholders, at a rate of 281.69 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of New Convertible Senior Notes, provided that the New Convertible Senior Notes will automatically convert at that same rate if the Company's stock price is at or above $3.55 per share based on a volume-weighted average price for ten out of fifteen consecutive trading days, subject to dividend, distribution or other customary adjustments. The New Convertible Senior Notes will be convertible into a maximum of approximately 41 million shares depending on the amount of New Convertible Senior Notes issued.

    In addition to the applicable exchange consideration, Eligible Holders of Old Notes accepted for exchange in the Exchange Offers will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Old Notes in cash from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date as described in the Offering Memorandum.

    All Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn will be accepted in accordance with their "Acceptance Priority Level" set forth in the table above, with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 3 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level. Accordingly, all Old Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level 1 will be accepted before any Old Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level 2 or an Acceptance Priority Level 3, and all Old Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level 2 will be accepted before any Old Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level 3, until the applicable maximum amount of New Notes has been reached. If the remaining portion of the New Notes is adequate to exchange some but not all of the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes tendered within the next lower Acceptance Priority Level, Old Notes tendered for exchange in that next lower Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted on a pro rata basis, based on the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes tendered with respect to that next lower Acceptance Priority Level, and no Old Notes with a lower Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted for exchange.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, all Old Notes that are tendered for exchange in the Exchange Offers at or before the Early Participation Time will have priority over Old Notes that are tendered for exchange after the Early Participation Time, even if such Old Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Old Notes tendered at or before the Early Participation Time.

    The consummation of the Exchange Offers is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of conditions set out in the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal, subject to the Company's right to amend or terminate any of the Exchange Offers prior to the Expiration Time. The consummation of the Exchange Offers is not contingent on any minimum exchange condition.  Tenders may be validly withdrawn at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 20, 2017, but not thereafter unless that date is extended by the Company or required by law.

    The New Notes have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or under any state securities laws and the New Notes will be issued pursuant to an exemption therefrom, and may not be offered or sold within the United States, or to or for the account or benefit of any U.S. Person, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

    Documents relating to the Exchange Offers will be distributed only to "Eligible Holders" of Old Notes who complete and return an eligibility form confirming that they are either a "qualified institutional buyer" under Rule 144A or not a "U.S. person" under Regulation S as defined under applicable securities laws.  The complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offers, as well as the terms of the New Notes, are described in the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal.

    In order to receive a copy of the Offering Memorandum, Eligible Holders must complete and submit an eligibility form.  The eligibility form may be obtained by visiting  https://web1.debtdomain.com/public/denbury/ or by contacting Ipreo LLC, the exchange agent and information agent in connection with the Exchange Offers, by calling (888) 593-9546 (toll free) or (212) 849-3880 (banks and brokers) or by emailing exchangeoffer@ipreo.com.
