Guidance regarding expected partial repayments under the Bonds

Clause 10 (Minimum repayment undertaking) of the Terms and Conditions prescribes that the Issuer must meet certain minimum amortization levels. In addition, pursuant to clause 9.3 (Mandatory redemption pro rata in case of repayment of the Senior Unsecured Loan) of the Terms and Conditions, the Issuer shall redeem the Bonds in an amount equal to the Bonds Pro-rata Share (as defined in the Terms and Conditions) if any repayment is made to the senior lenders under the senior unsecured loan agreement. The Issuer has agreed a new amortization profile with the senior lenders under the senior unsecured loan agreement as set out int the table below. Corresponding Bonds Pro-rata Share payments will be made under the Bonds. It is expected that the amortizations that will be made with respect to the Bonds as a result of the above-mentioned provisions will meet the minimum repayment undertaking applicable for the Bonds.

Due to slightly different bases used for the purpose of the calculations and currency conversion effects, the amortizations under the Bonds will not correspond exactly with the amortizations under the senior unsecured loan, but the figures can be used as a broad indication of the amortizations that can be expected under the Bonds. The Issuer will publish information on amounts to be repaid under the Bonds and repayment dates when they have been determined in connection with the repayments.
