NOTICE OF THE RESULTS OF THE WRITTEN RESOLUTION AND AMENDMENT OF BOND DOCUMENTATION
Luxembourg, 26 September 2022: On 20 September 2022, the Issuer (a 100%-subsidiary of Aggregate Holdings S.A.) launched a consent solicitation process with the aim of passing a written resolution (the “Written Resolution”) to effect certain modifications to the terms and conditions of the Bonds and consequential or related amendments to the associated transaction and ancillary documents.
As of 26 September 2022, holders representing 87.32 per cent. of the outstanding principal amount of the Bonds had voted in favour of the amendments proposed in such Written Resolution.
In accordance with the terms of the Bonds, the Written Resolution has therefore been duly approved by the requisite majority of holders of the Bonds (the “Bondholders”) and shall become binding on all Bondholders with immediate effect, irrespective of whether any Bondholders did not submit a vote in respect of such resolutions.
The Issuer hereby announces that the pre-conditions to the implementation of the Written Resolution have been satisfied and the amendments and modifications proposed under the Written Resolution in respect of the terms and conditions of the Bonds and the associated transaction and ancillary documents shall be effected on or around 26 September 2022.
Copies of each of the amended documents will be made available for collection by or on behalf of Bondholders during normal business hours at the registered office for the time being of Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as principal paying and conversion agent (being Winchester House, One Great Winchester Street, London EC2N 2DB).
