Reference is made to the terms and conditions of the Securities (the ’Terms and Conditions’).
Capitalised terms used in this notice and not otherwise defined in this notice shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Terms and Conditions.
The Issuer hereby gives irrevocable notice to the remaining Securityholders that it exercises its option to redeem the Securities in accordance with Condition 6(b) of the Terms and Conditions (Redemption at the option of the Issuer) (the ’Redemption‘). The redemption will occur on the First Par Call Date (being 26 June 2023) (the ’Redemption Date’).
As set out in Condition 6(b) of the Terms and Conditions, all outstanding Securities will be redeemed at their principal amount (EUR 1,000 per Security) together with interest accrued to (but excluding) the First Par Call Date (the ’Redemption Amount‘). There will be no Outstanding Payments after the Redemption Date.
The Redemption Amount will be paid to the Securityholders through the Clearing Systems for payment to the cash accounts of each person who is shown in the records of the Clearing Systems as a holder of the Securities at the end of business on 23 June 2023, being the business day immediately preceding the Redemption Date for payment to the Securityholders.
The payment of the aggregate Redemption Amount to the Clearing Systems will discharge the obligations of the Issuer to all Securityholders in respect of the payment of the Redemption Amount for the Securities beneficially owned by them, and no additional interest will be payable to a Securityholder if there is any delay in the transmission of funds from a Clearing System or any other relevant intermediary with respect to the Securities.
After the Redemption, there will be no Securities outstanding, and the Securities will be delisted from the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, and the admission of the Securities to trading on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange's regulated market will be cancelled with effect from the Redemption Date.
This notice of exercise of the Issuer's redemption option with respect to the Securities is irrevocable.
This notice is not to be construed as an offer to purchase or sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase or sell any of the Securities.
