Net Gaming Europe seeks approval from bondholders regarding certain amendments to the terms and conditions of its outstanding senior secured bond loan 2017/2020
Net Gaming Europe AB (publ) (“Net Gaming”) today announces that it is, through a written procedure, soliciting approval from holders of its bonds (the “Bondholders”) with ISIN SE0010297572 (the “Bonds”) to make certain amendments to the terms and conditions of the Bonds
Net Gaming has requested that Nordic Trustee & Agency AB (publ), acting in its capacity as agent (the “Agent”) for the Bondholders, initiates a written procedure in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Bonds. The purpose of the written procedure is for the Bondholders to grant consent to certain amendments to the terms and conditions of the Bonds (the “Proposal”). The overall objective of the amendments proposed herein is to postpone the Bonds’ final redemption date by two years, to 14 September 2022, in order to allow sufficient time to improve operational performance within the group and hence increase and improve refinancing options for Net Gaming in a more steady market. The proposed amendments can be found in the notice of written procedure (the “Notice”) which is available on the websites of Net Gaming (www.netgaming.se/investor-relations) and the Agent (www.nordictrustee.com) and (www.stamdata.com).
- It is pleasing that several of our larger bondholders are positive to the proposed amendments presented. We are confident that it is for the benefit of the company as well as the bondholders and we trust it will give us time to continue to develop the company and lower the debt ratio henceforth, comment from Robert Andersson, CEO of Net Gaming.
Bondholders representing approximately 43.1 per cent. of the total adjusted nominal amount have signed irrevocable voting undertakings to vote in favour of the Proposal.
To be eligible to vote in the written procedure, a Bondholder must on 27 April 2020 be registered in the debt register (Sw. skuldbok) for the Bonds as a direct registered owner (Sw. direktregistrerad ägare) or as an authorised nominee (Sw. förvaltare) with respect to one or several Bonds. The Agent must receive a duly completed voting form no later than 15.00 (CET) on 18 May 2020. The written procedure may be completed in advance if a sufficient quorum and majority of consents to the Requests have been received before 18 May 2020.
Provided that the Proposal is approved by a sufficient quorum and majority, each Bondholder will, subject to the terms and conditions specified in the Notice, obtain a consent fee, which will be an amount equal to 1 per cent. of the nominal amount of each Bond held by the relevant Bondholder.
Net Gaming expects to announce the result of the written procedure no later than 18 May 2020. Following such announcement, a notice of the outcome of the written procedure will also be published on the websites of Net Gaming and of the Agent.
