The joint receivers of the Company, being Kris Beighton of KPMG in the Cayman Islands, and Richard Heis and Mick McLoughlin, of KPMG LLP in the UK (the 'Receivers') hereby provide an update of the auction process involving certain market participants (the 'Cash Bidders') who were invited to submit bids for the purchase of a proportion of the portfolio of debt securities held by the Company (the 'Investment Portfolio').
The Company received bids on the Investment Portfolio from twelve Cash Bidders. The Highest Bid Price for the Investment Portfolio was 16.35% (including interest). The Highest Bid Price is the highest bid price (expressed as a percentage) received from Cash Bidders in respect of Investment Portfolio (the proportion of this portfolio compared to the whole of the portfolio of debt securities held by the Company was determined by final elections by Senior Creditors and Senior Creditors’ reserve prices).
The Senior Creditor Distribution will be 17.01%. The Senior Creditor Distribution is the distribution to Senior Creditors (expressed as a percentage) based on the Highest Bid Price.
In addition to the Senior Creditor Distribution described above, the Receivers intend to make a distribution of approximately $86 million from the Company bank account to all Senior Creditors on or about 30 September 2008.
Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in this notice shall have the meanings given to them in the Master Definitions Agreement dated 6 July 2006 (as amended and restated on 13 July 2007) between, amongst others, the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon (as Security Trustee).
