HOUSTON, June 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WCA Waste Corporation (Nasdaq:WCAA) ("WCA") announced today the initial results of its previously announced tender offer relating to any and all of its outstanding 9.25% senior notes due 2014 ("2014 Notes") pursuant to its Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated May 23, 2011. In conjunction with the tender offer, WCA solicited from holders of the 2014 Notes consents to proposed amendments to the indenture governing the 2014 Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"), which would eliminate substantially all the restrictive covenants and certain events of default and related provisions.

As of 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on June 6, 2011, WCA had received the requisite tenders and consents to the Proposed Amendments. The Proposed Amendments became effective on June 6, 2011 upon execution of a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the 2014 Notes.

On June 7, 2011 (the "Initial Payment Date"), WCA intends to accept and purchase $100,969,000 aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2014 Notes (or approximately 67.31% percent of the outstanding principal amount of 2014 Notes) for a purchase price equal to $1,027.00, plus accrued and unpaid interest, for each $1,000 principal amount of the 2014 Notes purchased. After giving effect to the purchase of 2014 Notes on the Initial Payment Date, an aggregate $49,031,000 principal amount of the 2014 Notes will remain outstanding.

WCA's tender offer for the 2014 Notes will expire at 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 21, 2011, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Date"). Holders of the 2014 Notes who validly tender their 2014 Notes on or prior to the Expiration Date, and whose 2014 Notes are accepted for purchase, will receive consideration equal to $997.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2014 Notes tendered, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the 2014 Notes up to, but not including, the subsequent payment date, which is expected to be promptly after the time of the Expiration Date. WCA currently intends to call for redemption any 2014 Notes that remain outstanding after the Expiration Date and consummation of the tender offer.

Because the withdrawal deadline of 5:00 p.m. New York City time on June 6, 2011 has passed, previously tendered 2014 Notes may no longer be withdrawn, and holders who tender 2014 Notes after the withdrawal deadline will not have withdrawal rights.
