SANTIAGO, CHILE / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2018 / Embotelladora Andina S.A. (the "Company"), a Chilean publicly held corporation, announced today the early results for its previously announced offer to purchase (the "Tender Offer") for cash up to US$210,000,000 in aggregate principal amount (the "Tender Cap") of its outstanding 5.000% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "Notes"). The Tender Offer is being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase, dated September 20, 2018 (the "Offer to Purchase"), which sets forth the terms of the Tender Offer.
As set forth in the table below, as of 5:00 p.m., New York time, on October 3, 2018 (the "Early Participation Date"), the Company has received tenders of US$441,729,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes. The aggregate principal amount of tendered Notes exceeds the Tender Cap. Based on the Tender Cap and the proration terms of the Tender Offer, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver by the Company of the Financing Condition and the General Conditions (as such terms are defined in the Offer to Purchase), the Company shall accept for purchase Notes in aggregate principal amount up to the Tender Cap, resulting in a Total Consideration of US$221,287,500, plus Accrued Interest (as defined herein). Subject to the satisfaction or waiver by the Company of the aforementioned conditions, the Notes that have been validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Early Participation Date and that are accepted in the Tender Offer will be purchased, retired and cancelled on the early settlement date, which is expected to occur on or about October 10, 2018 (the "Early Settlement Date"). We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to extend the Early Settlement Date to a later date and time as announced by us, in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.

Aggregate Principal Amount to be Accepted for Purchase as of the Early Participation Date(1)
5.000% Senior Notes due 2023
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver by the Company of the Financing Condition and the General Conditions (as such terms are defined in the Offer to Purchase).
US$1,053.75 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase by the Company, excluding Accrued Interest (as defined herein).
Includes an early participation payment of US$30.00 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase by the Company (the "Early Participation Payment").
The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 18, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such time, the "Expiration Date"). Because the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date exceeded the Tender Cap, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any additional Notes in the Tender Offer. Withdrawal rights for the Tender Offer have expired and have not been extended.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver by the Company of the Financing Condition and the General Conditions (as such terms are defined in the Offer to Purchase), holders of Notes who validly tendered and did not withdraw their Notes on or prior to the Early Participation Date, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase (subject to the Tender Cap and proration), will be entitled to receive on the Early Settlement Date a Total Consideration of US$1,053.75 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase by the Company, which includes the Early Participation Payment. In addition to the Total Consideration, accrued and unpaid interest will be paid on all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date (the "Accrued Interest").
Holders who have not already tendered their Notes may continue to do so at any time prior to the Expiration Date, but to the extent such Notes are validly tendered and accepted for purchase, such holders will be entitled to receive only the tender offer consideration, which is equal to the Total Consideration less the Early Participation Payment (the "Tender Offer Consideration"). However, because the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date exceeds the Tender Cap, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any additional Notes in the Tender Offer.

("Santander") as the Dealer Managers for the Tender Offer. Global Bondholder Services Corporation ("GBSC") is acting as the Information Agent and Depositary for the Tender Offer.
