("BCRE" or the "Company")
Refinancing of bank loans in Russia
The Company is pleased to announce that certain subsidiaries of BCRE Russia ("subsidiaries") have entered into agreements with the existing financing bank concerning four major projects in Russia, whereby the main loan terms have been amended and the corporate structure of the subsidiaries will be revised ("refinancing"). The Company expects that the amendments of the existing loan facilities will have a positive impact on the debt servicing obligations and on the liquidity of BCRE Russia.
The key amendments to the existing loan facilities and to the corporate structure of the subsidiaries, among other things, are the following:
· Where relevant, final maturity dates shall be prolonged by 3 to 4.5 years
· Amortisation payment schedules shall be postponed towards the maturity dates
· Interest rates have been improved
· Some material loan covenants have been relaxed
· The financing bank shall obtain a 'golden' share in each project, which provides the financing bank, inter alia, with a veto right in respect of material decisions at the level of the subsidiaries. The 'golden' shares can be repurchased subject to meeting certain conditions.
The completion of the refinancing is subject to (i) certain other conditions which need to be fulfilled by the subsidiaries and (ii) the approval of the transfer of the 'golden' shares to the financing bank, by the Federal Antimonopoly Service of the Russian Federation ("conditions precedent"). The conditions precedent should be completed within a period of eight months after the signing of the relevant agreements. The Company shall make further announcements of the final key amendments when the refinancing will be completed.
