Notice of Meeting

of the holders of the Company's EUR 8,990,000 7% Fixed Rate Bonds 26 July 2022

 

Eight Capital Partners plc (AQSE: ECP), the financial services operating company that aims to grow revenue through businesses engaged in "Fintech" operations, from the digitisation of banking services, through to blockchain-backed disruptive finance companies, announces that, further to its RNS of 23 May and at the request of a number of investors as part of the next steps in its proactive balance sheet reorganisation, a notice of meeting of the holders of the Company's EUR 7% Fixed Rate Bonds due 26 July 2022 ("the 7% Bonds") has been distributed today.

The notice in the form of a Consent Solicitation Memorandum (the "Memorandum") and as described in the bond agreements, requests bondholders to consider and, if thought fit, approve a proposal to modify the terms and conditions of the 7% Bonds by way of an extraordinary resolution.  The meeting is scheduled to be held at 50 Sloane Square, London, SW3 3DD at 10 am on Thursday 23 June 2022.

The extraordinary resolution to be put to bondholders seeks to align the 7% Bond terms with the more recently issued €25m 4.8% ECP Bonds due 3 September 2026.  More specifically approval will be sought for:

·    the maturity of the Bonds to be extended to 3 September 2026;

·    the rate of interest applicable to the Bonds to be set to 4.8 per cent. per annum; and

·    the interest payment date frequency to be increased to 3 March, 3 June, 3 September and 3 December in each year.

Should the changes be approved, bondholders will also be awarded warrants to subscribe for new ECP shares in an amount equal to the par value of bonds held at the time of grant of the warrants divided by the 0.0005 GBP strike price of the warrant.  The duration of the warrants will be one year from the implementation date.  They will be fully transferrable.

The Company looks forwards to updating shareholders with the result of the bondholder meeting once it becomes available.
