Energy XXI (Bermuda) Ltd. Announces Consent Solicitation for 8.250% Senior Notes Due 2018 of EPL Oil & Gas, Inc

Energy XXI (Bermuda) Ltd. announced it has commenced a consent solicitation with respect to proposed amendments to the indenture governing the 8.250% Senior Notes due 2018 of EPL Oil & Gas, Inc., upon the terms and subject to the conditions set in the Consent Solicitation Statement dated April 7, 2014. Energy XXI is soliciting consents from holders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 4, 2014, to certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes, to waive EPL's obligation to make and consummate a COC Offer upon the closing of the Merger by amending certain provisions of the Indenture, including the definition of "Change of Control." Subject to the terms and conditions set in the Statement, Energy XXI will pay eligible holders who validly deliver and do not revoke their consents on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 17, 2014, as may be extended by Energy XXI in accordance with the statement, a cash payment equal to $2.50 per $1,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes consented. The Consent Fee will only be payable upon, among other things, the receipt of Requisite Consents and the closing of the Merger. Energy XXI is seeking the Proposed Amendments in connection with the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 12, 2014, among Energy XXI, EPL, Energy XXI Gulf Coast, Inc. and Clyde Merger Sub, Inc., pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into EPL with EPL surviving the Merger as an indirect direct wholly owned subsidiary of Energy XXI. If the Merger is consummated and the Proposed Amendments do not become effective, a Change of Control is expected to occur, which would require EPL to make an offer to repurchase the Notes at 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest. The consent solicitation is subject to customary conditions, including, among other things, the receipt of valid and unrevoked consents with respect to a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes prior to the Expiration Date. The Proposed Amendments will be effected by supplemental indenture to the Indenture which will be executed promptly after the receipt of Requisite Consents, as described in more detail in the Statement. Delivered consents may be validly revoked prior to the earlier of the Consent Time and the Expiration Date. The Proposed Amendments will cease to be operative if the Merger is not consummated or Merger Sub does not pay the Consent Fee. In the event the Merger is not consummated on or prior to August 1, 2014, either Energy XXI or EPL may elect to terminate the Merger Agreement, provided that such date may be extended to September 12, 2014 if certain conditions are satisfied, or the parties may otherwise elect to extend such date by mutual agreement. Except for amendments relating to the pending change of control and related provisions, there are no other amendments to the Indenture being sought in connection with the consent solicitation. The consent solicitation is being made solely on the terms and subject to the conditions set in the Statement and the accompanying letter of consent. Energy XXI may, in its sole discretion, terminate, extend or amend the consent solicitation at any time as described in the Statement.

EPL Oil & Gas, Inc. Faces a Class Action against Board of Directors in Connection with the Sale of the Company to Energy XXI

Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors of EPL Oil & Gas, Inc. of claims of breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the company to Energy XXI. A complaint was filed in Delaware state court. Under the terms of the transaction, EPL shareholders may elect to receive either $39.00 in cash, 1.669 common shares of Energy XXI, or $25.35 in cash plus 0.584 common shares of Energy XXI for each share of EPL common stock they own. The claims concern whether the EPL Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Energy XXI is underpaying for EPL shares. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for EPL stock at $44.00 per share.
