Notice to holders ("Noteholders") of the Company's
£177,866,063 7 per cent. Extendable PIK Toggle Notes due 2022
(ISIN: XS0880578728, Common Code: 088057872)
Pursuant to Condition 5A(b) of the terms and conditions of the Notes (the "Conditions"), notice is hereby given that the Cash Payment Condition in respect of the Interest Payment Date falling on 15 August 2020 has not been satisfied and interest due on the Notes will not be paid in cash. The Interest Payment Date falling on 15 August 2020 will be a PIK Interest Payment Date for the purposes of the Conditions.
As a result of the Cash Payment Condition not being satisfied in respect of the Interest Payment Date falling on 15 August 2020, accrued interest on the Notes from (and including) 15 August 2020 will be capitalised and satisfied through the issue of Additional Notes in an aggregate principal amount of £6,225,312 (subject to rounding in accordance with the Conditions). The Additional Notes will be issued by the Company on 15 August 2020 and, upon listing, will be consolidated and form a single series with the existing Notes in issue. The aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes, as increased by the issue of the Additional Notes, will be £184,091,376 (subject to rounding in accordance with the Conditions).
As 15 August 2020 falls on a Saturday, which is not a business day, the Additional Notes will be issued on 17 August 2020 (being the next following business day).
The "record date" for determining the entitlement of the individual Noteholders will be the close of business on 14 August 2020 (being the business day (i.e. Monday to Friday inclusive except 25 December and 1 January) immediately prior to the PIK Interest Payment Date).
Admission of the Additional Notes to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's electronic order book for retail bonds is expected to take place as soon as practicable after the issue of the Additional Notes on 17 August 2020.
Words and expressions defined in the Conditions shall have the same meaning when used in this notice.
