Result of Bondholder Meeting

 

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, is pleased to announce that at a meeting of the holders of the Company's EUR 7% Fixed Rate Bonds due 26 July 2022 ("the 7% Bonds") ("Bondholders") held today in London, an Extraordinary Resolution to approve a proposal to modify the terms and conditions of the 7% Bonds was duly passed with the positive approval of 86% of those voting following an attendance of 79% of Bondholders.  The changes become affective on 1 July 2022.   

Specifically, the Extraordinary Resolution sought to align the 7% Bond terms with the more recently issued €25m 4.8% ECP Bonds due 3 September 2026. Bondholders have therefore approved the following revised terms:

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

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

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

Following approval, Bondholders have been awarded warrants in aggregate to subscribe for 15,367,521,368 new ECP Ordinary shares being 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 1 July 2022, the effective date of the revised terms. They will be fully transferrable.

Commenting on the result of the General Meeting, Dominic White, Executive Chairman of ECP said:

"The Company has been successful in creating and utilising debt instruments to raise finance.  Such instruments have been valuable in helping to build gross asset value.  Thanks to the positive support of the holders of our 7% Bonds, we are able to take this exciting next step forward through our proactive balance sheet expansion, which underpins ECP's wider fintech growth plans."

Related Party Transaction

Dominic White, a director of the Company, is also a director and the beneficial owner of IWEP Limited, ECP's main shareholder. Pursuant to AQSE Rule 4.6, the restructuring, including the issuance of warrants to IWEP constitutes a related party transaction.
