Adjournment of the Respective Meetings of the PNC9 Securityholders and PNC15 Securityholders
The Meetings were held separately earlier today, and NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN:
(i) to the PNC9 Securityholders that, at the PNC9 Meeting the relevant Extraordinary Resolution was duly passed, however, the Eligibility Condition was not satisfied and therefore the conditions to the implementation of the amendments to the Conditions of the PNC9 Securities in accordance with the Extraordinary Resolution in respect of the PNC9 Securities and the PNC9 Securities Supplemental Trust Deed have not been met. Pursuant to Paragraph 9 of the Extraordinary Resolution, as a result of the Eligibility Condition not being satisfied, the PNC9 Meeting has been adjourned as appropriate; and
(ii) to the PNC15 Securityholders that, the quorum required for the PNC15 Meeting was not obtained, and accordingly the PNC15 Meeting has been adjourned as appropriate.
The adjourned Meeting in respect of the:
(i) PNC9 Securities will commence on
(ii) PNC15 Securities will commence on
In the event that the Consent Conditions are satisfied at each adjourned Meeting and the Extraordinary Resolution in respect of each Series is passed, each Extraordinary Resolution constitutes (amongst others) a direction by the Securityholders of each Series to the Trustee to consent to and to concur in the amendments to the Conditions of the relevant Series and any consequential or related amendments to the transaction documents for the relevant Series in order to change the Reset Reference Rate such that (i) the Reset Reference Rate ceases to be a LIBOR linked mid-swap rate (specifically being the mid-rate for a 5 year Sterling fixed-for-floating interest rate swap (where the floating leg pays 6 month GBP LIBOR semi-annually)) and becomes a SONIA linked mid-swap rate (specifically being the mid-rate for a 5 year Sterling fixed-for-floating interest rate swap (where the floating leg pays daily compounded SONIA annually)); (ii) the Reset Reference Rate Adjustment is made to reflect the economic difference between the LIBOR linked mid-swap rate and SONIA linked mid-swap rate; (iii) the Margin applicable to each Series of Securities remains unaltered by these changes; (iv) the fallbacks relating to the Reset Reference Rate are amended; and (v) new fallbacks are included in case a Benchmark Event occurs with respect to the Reset Rate of Interest, as more fully set out in the relevant Supplemental Trust Deed and as may be necessary to give effect thereto.
