SUMMONS TO BONDHOLDERS' MEETINGS IN DOF SUBSEA AS - REQUEST TO EXTEND STANDSTILL PERIOD
SUMMONS TO BONDHOLDERS' MEETINGS IN DOF SUBSEA AS – REQUEST TO EXTEND STANDSTILL PERIOD
Reference is made to the resolutions adopted in the bondholders' meetings in DOF Subsea AS' three bond loans (FRN DOF Subsea AS Senior Unsecured Bond Issue 2013/2020, DOF Subsea AS 9.50% Senior Unsecured Bond Issue 2017/2022 and FRN DOF Subsea AS Senior Unsecured Bond Issue 2018/2023) on 30 September 2020, whereby the bondholders on certain conditions approved to extend their waiver from, and suspension of, all payment obligations under each of the bond loans until 31 January 2021.
Discussions and negotiations on the restructuring of the DOF group are continuing with the group's secured lenders and advisers to the bondholders, respectively, and exploring the basis on which agreement on an overall financial restructuring of the group might be found. While progress has been made, further discussions and negotiations will be required to determine whether an agreement for the restructuring of the group can be found.
DOF Subsea AS has therefore requested Nordic Trustee AS to summon bondholders' meetings in the three bond loans to consider the extension of the standstill period initially until 31 March 2021 and with a possibility to extend to 30 June 2021 with the approval of an ad-hoc committee of bondholders.The proposal is further described in the attached summons to the bondholders in the three bond loans. A request has also been made to the DOF group's secured lenders to extend the suspension of payments of principal and interest that have been granted by a majority of its secured lenders.
