Update on refinancing process and summons to bondholders’ meeting
Reference is made to the stock exchange communication of Solstad Offshore ASA of October 22nd, 2018.
Solstad Offshore ASA is in the process of negotiating a potential agreement whereby interest and amortisations on financial debt of the Solstad Offshore group will be temporarily suspended and deferred commencing December 20th, 2018.
The contemplated suspension agreement will not apply to the financial debt of Solship 1 Invest AS, Solship 3 Invest AS, and their respective subsidiaries. As such, the bond loan of Solship 1 Invest AS will continue to be serviced in its ordinary course. The scope of the contemplated suspension agreement may be widened at a later stage.
The contemplated suspension agreement will be conditional that the suspension and deferral also applies to the interest falling due for payment on Solstad Offshore ASA’s outstanding bond with ISIN NO 001 0713548. Solstad Offshore ASA has therefore today on 5 December 2018 summoned for a bondholders’ meeting (the “Summons“) requesting the bondholders’ consent to such suspension and deferral. The Summons is attached to this notice.
The bondholders’ meeting will be held on December 19th, 2018 at 13:00 (CET) at the premises of Nordic Trustee AS, Haakon VIIs gt.1, 0161 Oslo (6th floor).
The summons will be sent directly to all bondholders.
Skudeneshavn, December 5th, 2018.
