Exchange and Consent Solicitation Details


Shutterfly Finance, LLC, a subsidiary of the Company (the “New Issuer” or “New Borrower”), has commenced an offer to eligible holders of the Company’s 8.50% First-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2026 (the “Existing Notes”) to exchange (the “Exchange Offer”) any and all of the outstanding Existing Notes, together with a required cash payment (as described below), for, at the option of each eligible holder of Existing Notes, either (1) new 9.75% First-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2027 (the “New 1L Notes”) of the New Issuer and new 8.50% Second-Priority Senior Secured Cash/PIK Notes due 2027 (the “New 2L Notes”) of the New Issuer (the “First Option Consideration”) OR (2) new first lien terms loans of the New Borrower under a new first lien credit agreement (such term loans, the “New First Lien Term Loans” and such credit agreement, the “New First Lien Credit Agreement”) and New 2L Notes (the “Second Option Consideration”). An eligible participant may elect to receive First Option Consideration or Second Option Consideration with respect to all of the Existing Notes such participant tenders in the Exchange Offer or such participant may elect to receive First Option Consideration with respect to a portion of the Existing Notes tendered and Second Option Consideration with respect to the remaining portion of Existing Notes tendered (in each case, subject to the terms of the Exchange Offer).


Concurrently with the Exchange Offer, the New Issuer commenced a consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) whereby the New Issuer is soliciting consents (“Consents”) from eligible holders of the Existing Notes to certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture governing the Existing Notes (the “Existing Notes Indenture”) to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants in the Existing Notes Indenture and make certain other changes. Eligible holders may not deliver Consents without participating in the Exchange Offer and eligible holders may not participate in the Exchange Offer without delivering the related Consents. Promptly following the Early Participation Time (as defined below), if holders of at least a majority of the outstanding principal amount of Existing Notes (excluding Existing Notes held by the Company and its affiliates) consent to the Proposed Amendments (the “Requisite Consents”), the Company and the trustee (the “Existing Trustee”) under the Existing Notes Indenture will enter into a supplemental indenture with respect to the Existing Notes Indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture”) to give effect to the Proposed Amendments. The Supplemental Indenture will be a valid, binding and enforceable agreement when it is executed and delivered by the Company and the Existing Trustee, which may be promptly following the Early Participation Time if the Requisite Consents have been received by such time. The Proposed Amendments will not become operative unless and until Existing Notes representing at least the Requisite Consents are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for exchange pursuant to the Exchange Offer.


The following table sets forth the total consideration (the “Total Consideration”) per $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes if validly tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Time and the exchange consideration (the “Exchange Consideration”) per $1,000 of Existing Notes if validly tendered after the Early Participation Time but at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for exchange in the Exchange Offer:"
