International Consolidated Airlines Group, S.A.

 

Admission of Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights

and notice of intention to cancel Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights

 

International Consolidated Airlines Group, S.A. (the "Company") announces that, further to the announcement on 10 September 2020, the Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights have been admitted to listing on the standard segment of the Official List and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.

The Company intends to cancel the listing of the Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights on the standard segment of the Official List and the trading of the Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange following the end of the Pre-emptive Subscription Period (the "Cancellation"). It is expected that the Cancellation will take effect on 28 September 2020. The Company is undertaking the Cancellation as, in accordance with Spanish law, the Subscription Rights issued pursuant to the Capital Increase and listed on the Spanish Stock Exchanges will automatically expire at the end of the Pre-emptive Subscription Period. Consequently, the Company intends to apply to the UK Financial Conduct Authority and the LSE to request the Cancellation as soon as possible thereafter.

All acceptances for the Capital Increase in respect of Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights must be submitted no later than 14:30 (BST) on 25 September 2020 and trading in Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange will end at 14:30 (BST) on 25 September 2020.

Shareholders who take no action will not receive compensation for any unused or expired Subscription Rights or Subscription Rights in the form of CDI Rights and will be diluted.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement shall have the meanings given to them in the prospectus relating to the Capital Increase (the "Prospectus"), unless the context requires otherwise. The Prospectus is available on the Company's website (www.iairgoup.com) and the CNMV's website (www.cnmv.es).

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements included in this announcement are forward-looking. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. By their nature, they involve risk and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements often use words such as "expects", "may", "will", "could", "should", "intends", "plans", "predicts", "envisages" or "anticipates" or other words of similar meaning. They include, without limitation, any and all projections relating to the results of operations and financial conditions of International Consolidated Airlines Group, S.A.  and its subsidiary undertakings from time to time (the 'Group'), as well as plans and objectives for future operations, expected future revenues, financing plans, expected expenditure and divestments relating to the Group and discussions of the Group's business plan. All forward-looking statements in this announcement are based upon information known to the Group on the date of this announcement and speak as of the date of this announcement. Other than in accordance with its legal or regulatory obligations, the Group does not undertake to update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

Actual results may differ from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements in this announcement as a result of any number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, but not limited to, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainties about its impact and duration, many of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond the control of the Group, and it is not reasonably possible to itemise each item. Accordingly, readers of this announcement are cautioned against relying on forward-looking statements. Further information on the primary risks of the business and the Group's risk management process is set out in the Risk management and principal risk factors section in the Annual Report and Accounts 2019; these documents are available on www.iairgroup.com. All forward-looking statements made on or after the date of this announcement and attributable to IAG are expressly qualified in their entirety by the primary risks set out in that section. Many of these risks are, and will be, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and any further disruption to the global airline industry and economic environment as a result.
