COVID-19 Update re: Results of Noteholder Consent Request
As previously announced on 4 March 2021, Marston's Issuer PLC (the "Issuer") formally asked the holders of its Secured Class A Notes (the "Noteholders") for a limited number of further technical waivers ("the Proposals") during the second half of 2021 following the lockdown restrictions introduced in December 2020. The waivers being requested are required solely as a consequence of the enforced temporary re-closure of its pubs in England and Wales by the UK Government as a result of the COVID--19 pandemic measures.
The meeting of the Noteholders took place at 10.00am today.
The Group is pleased to confirm that the Noteholders which were present, or represented, at the meeting held 99.93 per cent of the total amount outstanding of the Secured Class A Notes and 92.63 per cent voted in favour of the Extraordinary Resolution regarding the Proposals, thereby giving their consent to the technical waivers and amendments requested by the Issuer.
As a result, the Issuer will now proceed with the implementation of the Proposals.
