The IGT notes covered by the offer include: the EUR700 million (US$812.8 million) 4.125 percent senior secured notes due 2020 represented by the Regulation S global note; and the EUR500 million 4.750 percent senior secured notes due 2020, which were issued with an initial coupon of 3.500 percent.

The offer began on June 18 and expires on June 25.
All holders of purchased notes will also receive, in addition to the tender offer consideration, a cash amount in euro equal to the accrued and unpaid interest on the applicable notes, from, and including, the immediately preceding interest payment date up to, but excluding, the date of payment for the tendered notes, the firm said.
In its release, IGT also stated that, “to take advantage of the current market conditions it intends to launch a new offering of euro notes”.
