MINNEAPOLIS -- Supervalu here said it has paid approximately $213 million in cash to holders of liquid yield option notes due 2031 that were put to the retailer/distributor as of Oct. 1, 2006. The company said the move represents about 80 percent of the outstanding notes.
Under the terms of the notes, holders could require Supervalu to purchase all or a portion of their notes on Oct. 1, 2006 at a purchase price equal to the accreted value of the notes, which includes accrued and unpaid cash interest.
From there, Supervalu may redeem all or a portion of the notes for cash at any time for a purchase price equal to the sum of the issue price, plus accrued original issue discount as of the redemption date.
