SRV Group Plc has agreed on a capital loan of EUR 9 million

SRV Group Plc ("SRV") has today agreed on a loan arrangement, where OP Life Assurance Company Ltd, Pohjola Insurance Ltd and AS Pontos Baltic, a subsidiary of Pontos Ltd (the "Lenders"), grant SRV a capital loan in the aggregate amount of EUR 9 million, which is subject to the provisions of Chapter 12 of the Finnish Companies Act on capital loans.

Annual interest at the rate of 12 per cent shall be paid on the capital loan, provided that the prerequisites for interest payment are met. Accrued and unpaid interest on the capital loan shall be paid upon the final repayment of the capital loan.

The purpose of the capital loan, already before the contemplated rights issue announced by SRV on 6 February 2020, is to strengthen SRV's capital structure and to facilitate securing compliance in the prevailing uncertain economic situation under unusual conditions with the covenants contained in SRV's financing agreements.

The capital loan becomes due and payable on 1 February 2022, provided that the prerequisites for repayment are met. The Lenders may, however, pay for new shares subscribed for in the contemplated rights issue announced by SRV on 6 February 2020 by setting of the principal amount of the capital loan.

However, interest accrued from the date of the drawdown of the capital loan until the anticipated allocation date of the contemplated rights issue shall exceptionally mature for payment in advance on 2 April 2020. The amount of the interest maturing in advance is EUR 225,000.
