Pursuant to a notice of conditional redemption dated February 23, 2021, the Issuer notified Holders of its intention to redeem €50,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding at a redemption price of 103.000%, plus accrued and unpaid interest from January 31, 2021, to, the planned redemption date of March 9 (the "First Redemption").

 

Terms used, but not otherwise defined, in this notice of conditional redemption shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Indenture.

 

The terms and conditions of the redemption are as follows:

 

1.  The redemption date for the Fully Redeemed Notes or the Partially Redeemed Notes, as applicable, will be March 19, 2021 (the "Redemption Date") and the record date will be March 18, 2021 (unless postponed in accordance with paragraph 4 hereof). The aggregate redemption price for the Fully Redeemed Notes (assuming the Redemption Date for the Fully Redeemed Notes is not postponed in accordance with paragraph 4 hereof) or the Partially Redeemed Notes, as applicable, is:

 

a.  €337,746,551.37, which comprises of (i) €322,082,000 in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes (after giving effect to the First Redemption) at a redemption price of 100.000%, (ii) the Applicable Redemption Premium equal to €13,363,007.08 million and (iii) accrued and unpaid interest from January 31, 2021, to, the Redemption Date of €2,301,544.29 (the "FullRedemption Price"); or

 

b.  In the event the Financing Condition is not satisfied, €75,587,728.95, which comprises of (i) €72,082,000 in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes (after giving effect to the First Redemption) at a redemption price of 100.000%, (ii) the Applicable Redemption Premium equal to €2,990,642.99 million and (iii) accrued and unpaid interest from January 31, 2021, to, the Redemption Date of €515,085.96 (the "PartialRedemption Price").

 

2.  The Notes will be redeemed in accordance with paragraph 6 of the Notes.

 

3.  The redemption of the Fully Redeemed Notes is conditional upon receipt by the Paying Agent of sufficient funds to pay the Full Redemption Price payable to the Holders on or before the Redemption Date from the issuance of new senior secured debt securities by the Issuer (the "Financing Condition"). In the event that the Financing Condition set forth herein is not satisfied or waived by the Issuer, only the Partially Redeemed Notes shall be deemed due and payable on the Redemption Date. The Issuer will inform Holders of Notes by press release as to whether the Financing Condition will, in the sole discretion of the Issuer, be satisfied or waived. If the Financing Condition is not satisfied or waived, any Notes previously surrendered to the relevant Paying Agent in excess of the aggregate principal amount of Partially Redeemed Notes shall be returned to the Holders thereof and the redemption will be revoked.

 

4.  In the event that, in the Issuer's reasonable belief, the Financing Condition will be satisfied at a date later than the Redemption Date, the Issuer may postpone the Redemption Date for the Fully Redeemed Notes by issuing a supplemental notice one (1) Business Day prior to the Redemption Date; provided that (i) the postponed Redemption Date is at least ten (10) days and not more than sixty (60) days after the date of this Conditional Notice of Redemption and (ii) the Issuer sends the supplemental notice indicating the postponed Redemption Date, corresponding record date and the Redemption Price.

 

5.  The Fully Redeemed Notes or Partially Redeemed Notes (as applicable) must be presented and surrendered to the Paying Agent, which is Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, Winchester House, 1 Great Winchester House, London EC2N 2DB, United Kingdom (Attention: Debt & Agency Services; Facsimile No.: +44 207 547 6149; Email: [email protected]), to collect the Redemption Price.

 

6.  Unless the Issuer and the Guarantors default in paying the Full Redemption Price or the Partial Redemption Price (as applicable), interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on the Fully Redeemed Notes (or a portion thereof) or the Partially Redeemed Notes (or a portion thereof), as applicable, shall cease to accrue on and after the Redemption Date. Subsequent to the Full Redemption, if applicable, the only remaining right of Holders of the Notes is to receive payment on the Redemption Date of the Full Redemption Price upon surrender to the Paying Agent of the Notes redeemed.

 

7.  The ISIN and Common Code numbers in relation to the Notes being redeemed are as set forth above. No representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of such numbers listed in this Conditional Notice of Redemption or printed on the Notes. Reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers printed on the Notes.
