Cramo Plc announces positive results from the Noteholders’ Meeting for its senior unsecured notes
The meeting of the holders of Cramo Plc’s EUR 150,000,000 2.375 per cent senior unsecured notes due 2022 (ISIN FI4000232509) (the "Notes") was held on 22 March 2019.
The holders of the Notes resolved to approve the proposals relating to granting consents and waivers (the “Consents and Waivers”) and took decisions to amend the terms and conditions of the Notes (the “Amendments”).
The Consents and Waivers became effective immediately upon approval at the meeting, and the Amendments will become effective at the completion of the partial demerger (the “Effective Date”) of Cramo Plc as announced on 18 February 2019 whereby all assets and liabilities belonging to the modular space business of Cramo Plc shall be transferred without a liquidation procedure to Adapteo Plc, a company to be incorporated in the demerger. Cramo Plc will issue a stock exchange release when the Effective Date has occurred. The Effective Date is expected to take place on or about 1 July 2019. In the event the Effective Date does not occur by 31 October 2019 any and all Consents, Waivers and Amendments shall lapse.
The payment of the instruction fees payable in connection with the consent solicitation process will occur no later than five (5) business days following the occurrence of the Effective Date.
Simultaneously upon receiving approval of the proposals at the meeting, Cramo Plc’s previously obtained financing commitments for a EUR 150 million back-up facility for the Notes were cancelled.
