(the "Existing Bonds")

 

issued by the Existing Issuer and guaranteed by Affinity Water Limited (the "Company"), Affinity Water Holdings Limited and Affinity Water Programme Finance Limited

 

The Company is considering the substitution of the Programme Issuer, an entity incorporated in the Cayman Islands, as issuer of the Programme Issuer Bonds and as guarantor of the Existing Bonds with a special purpose vehicle incorporated under the laws of England and Wales (the "Substitution").

 

The Cayman Islands incorporated Programme Issuer was established in 2013 to raise long-term finance for the Company's investment programme and operations. It was incorporated outside the UK for legal reasons that are no longer relevant. The Company's board considers it in the interests of customers and wider stakeholders to remove this entity from the financing structure.

 

If the Company proceeds with the Substitution, it will seek the consent of Secured Creditors pursuant to a STID Proposal.

 

Further information will be released in due course.
