This Amendment No. 3 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 21, 2014, as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed with the SEC on May 21, 2014 and Amendment No. 2 thereto filed with the SEC on May 23, 2014 (the “Schedule TO”) by Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc., a corporation organized as a corporation under the laws of Ontario, Canada and continued under the laws of British Columbia, Canada (the “Company”), in relation to its offer to exchange (the “Exchange Offer”) a number of shares of its common stock for each validly tendered and accepted unit of the Company’s outstanding 6.50% Tangible Equity Units (the “TMEDS”), on the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Exchange, dated May 21, 2014 (the “Offer to Exchange”), and in the related Letter of Transmittal, which, as amended or supplemented from time to time, together constitute the Exchange Offer.

 

The Schedule TO was filed in satisfaction of the reporting requirements of Rule 13e-4 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and this Amendment No. 3 to Schedule TO is being filed to (i) amend certain pricing terms of the Exchange Offer and the extend the expiration date of the Exchange Offer, and (ii) include a press release distributed on June 11, 2014, announcing such amendment and extension.

 

The information set forth in the Offer to Exchange, including the accompanying Letter of Transmittal attached as Annex A thereto, and Notice of Guaranteed Delivery attached as Annex B thereto, is incorporated in this Amendment No. 3 by reference to all of the applicable items in the Schedule TO, except that such information is hereby amended and supplemented to the extent specifically provided herein.

 

Item 4.   Terms of the Transaction.

 

Item 4 of Schedule TO is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

 

The Offer to Exchange is amended to reflect a new Exchange Ratio (as defined below) and averaging period.  Under the new pricing terms, subject to the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer, each holder of TMEDS may tender all or a portion of such holder’s TMEDS in exchange for (i) 5.3879 shares of common stock plus (ii) a number of shares of common stock equal to $1.25 divided by the Weighted Average Price (as defined in the Offer to Exchange), subject to a maximum of 5.8879 shares of common stock and a minimum of 5.7004 shares of common stock per unit of TMEDS validly tendered and accepted for exchange (the “Exchange Ratio”).  The Exchange Ratio will be rounded to the nearest fourth decimal place.  Fractional shares will not be issued in the Exchange Offer and holders will receive the cash value of any fractional shares due to them, which cash value shall be calculated by multiplying the fractional shares to be received by the Weighted Average Price of our common stock.  The new averaging period over which the Weighted Average Price will be determined will begin on June 16, 2014 and end on June 20, 2014, the pricing date.

 

The Offer to Exchange is further amended to extend the expiration date to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 24, 2014, unless further extended or earlier terminated by the Company.  The Exchange Offer was previously scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 18, 2014.
