As further described in the Consent Solicitation Memorandum, the implementation of each Extraordinary Resolution for any series of Notes is conditional on (i) the Extraordinary Resolution having been passed in relation such series of Notes, (ii) the quorum required for, and the requisite majority of votes cast at, the relevant Meeting being satisfied solely by the participation of the relevant Eligible Holders, without taking into consideration the relevant Ineligible Holders, and irrespective of any participation at the Meeting by such Ineligible Holders; (iii) the Extraordinary Resolution having been passed in relation to all three series of the Main Market Notes and (iv) the General Conditions having been satisfied or waived.

 

While substantially all of the consents received as of the Expiration Deadline for each series of the Notes were in favour of the Extraordinary Resolutions, the quorum required for certain series of the Notes was not achieved when the relevant Meeting was convened, thereby necessitating an adjourned meeting in respect of each of these series of Notes.

 

Adjourned Meetings

In respect of each series of Notes where the quorum requirements were not met at the relevant Meetings (as specified in the table above), such Meetings will be adjourned to 26 April 2019 in accordance with a notice of adjourned meeting to be delivered to holders of such series of Notes via Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg on 12 April 2019. 

Consent Instructions validly submitted in accordance with the procedures set out in the Consent Solicitation Memorandum shall remain valid for the relevant adjourned Meeting.

 

 

Consent Instructions

Consent Instructions may be submitted in respect of those series of Notes for which an adjourned Meeting is convened until 10 a.m. on 24 April 2019.  Consent Instructions that have already been submitted in respect of such Notes and not revoked shall remain valid at the relevant adjourned Meeting.
