Kendle International Inc. Announces Expiration of Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation for Convertible Notes

CINCINNATI, July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kendle International Inc. (Nasdaq: KNDL) ("Kendle"), announced today the expiration, as of 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on July 11, 2011 (the "Expiration Date"), of its previously announced cash tender offer and consent solicitation for any and all of its $142.5 million aggregate principal amount of outstanding 3.375% Convertible Senior Notes due 2012 (CUSIP No. 48880LAA5; ISIN No. US48880LAA52) (the "Notes").  Kendle has accepted for payment all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Offer.

Pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated June 6, 2011, as amended and supplemented, and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent, as amended and supplemented (and together with the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation, the "Offer Documents"), Kendle has accepted for purchase and paid for $140,420,000 of the outstanding $142,500,000 principal amount of the Notes.

In connection with the tender offer for the Notes, as previously announced, Kendle received the required consents to eliminate the reporting covenant in the indenture under which the Notes were issued.  In addition, Kendle also announced that all conditions to completion of the Offer have been satisfied or waived. Accordingly, a supplemental indenture relating to the Notes became operative upon the acceptance of the Notes by Kendle for purchase, and the Third Supplemental Indenture among Kendle and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee for the holders of the Notes, has been executed. Further, Kendle has notified the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes that the Company intends to discharge the purchased Notes in accordance with the terms of the indenture and has deposited the requisite funds with the trustee.

Kendle has retained Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC ("Morgan Stanley") to act as dealer manager in connection with the tender offer and consent solicitation.  Questions about the tender offer and consent solicitation may be directed to Morgan Stanley at (800) 624–1808 (toll free) or (212) 761–1941 (collect).  Copies of the Offer Documents and other related documents may be obtained from Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the information agent for the tender offer and consent solicitation, at (866) 470−4300 (toll free) or (212) 430−3774 (for banks and brokers only).

The tender offer and consent solicitation was made solely pursuant to the applicable Offer Documents, which set forth the complete terms of the tender offer and consent solicitation.  Holders should also read the Schedule TO, filed on June 6, 2011, as amended and supplemented.  Under no circumstances shall this press release constitute an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an offer to sell the Notes or any other Kendle securities.  This press release also is not a solicitation of consents to the proposed amendment to the indenture.  No recommendation is made as to whether holders of the securities should tender their securities or give their consent.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale of any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
