Update on MBC Auction
Life Settlement Assets PLC (the "Company")
Further update re sale of Mutual Benefits Keep Policy Trust ("MBC")
Further to the Company's announcement of 27 January 2023, the Board of LSA is pleased to announce that US federal district court judge has received, affirmed and adopted the magistrate's report and, accordingly, the sale of the portfolio of life policies ("the Portfolio") to Acheron Portfolio Trust ("APT") (on behalf of LSA) has been approved.
The sale of the Portfolio to APT is for a gross consideration of $24 million (subject to adjustment for changes in the Portfolio such as maturities). The proceeds of the sale, net of all transaction, legal and wind down costs which are anticipated by the MBC trustee to be $5 million, will be distributed to MBC's investors, including APT (as a current investor). As at 1 December 2022 the face value attributed to the Portfolio was US$167 million, of which approximately 63% is attributable to APT's interests.
Whilst under US law there is a 14-day period for any appeal to be made, the Board expects completion to occur before the end of March and the Company will make a further announcement once the sale has been completed.
