Ukreximbank starts consent solicitation on $750 mln LPN due 2015

The State Export-Import Bank of Ukraine (Ukreximbank, Kyiv) has commenced a consent solicitation in relation to the outstanding $750 million 8.375% loan participation notes (LPN) due on April 27, 2015.

The bank said in an address to investors, a copy of which has been sent to Interfax-Ukraine, that the issuer has proposed the extension of the final maturity date of the notes from April 27, 2015 to July 27, 2015 to investors.

In addition, the bank also asked that the note-holders give their consent to a waiver of, and instruct the trustee and the issuer to waive, any potential event of default or event of default which may have arisen or may arise under the notes or the loan agreement as a result of the failure by the bank to make any payment in respect of the loan and/or failure by the issuer to make any payment in respect of the notes on the original maturity date resulting from a delay in the registration of the supplemental loan agreement with the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU).

The bank asked that the note-holders give their further consent to a waiver of, and instruct the trustee and the issuer to waive, any rights which may arise as a result of occurrence of any such potential event of default or event of default and any other potential event of default or event of default, provided, however, that if the effective date has not occurred on or before July 27, 2015, such a waiver shall cease to apply and note-holders, the trustee and the issuer will be at liberty to exercise such rights and take such proceedings as they are entitled to take in connection with a failure by the bank to pay amounts due under the loan, or a failure by the issuer to pay amounts due under the notes.

The bank also asked that the note-holders to give their consent to a waiver of, and instruct the trustee and the issuer to waive, any potential event of default or event of default which may have arisen or may arise under the notes or the loan agreement as a result of the failure by the bank to comply with any obligations of the bank under the loan agreement.

The voting deadline is April 9, 2015.

The meeting of the note-holders is scheduled for April 13, 2015.

In the event that an adjourned meeting is convened, the new voting deadline will be April 23 and the meeting will be held on April 27, 2015.

As reported, Ukreximbank placed five-year $500 million LPN in the middle of April 2010. In October 2010, the bank placed more securities worth $250 million.

Citigroup Inc. and Credit Suisse AG were the underwriters of the issue.

Ukreximbank was founded in 1992. Its sole owner is the state.

Ukreximbank ranked third among 158 operating banks as of January 1, 2015, in terms of total assets worth UAH 126 billion, according to the NBU.
