Oslo/Rhoon, 19 June 2020 – MPC Container Ships Invest B.V., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MPC Container Ships ASA, has requested Nordic Trustee AS as Bond Trustee and Security Agent to summon to a bondholders’ meeting for 3 July 2020 in respect of its USD 200,000,000 senior secured bond issue, MPCBV01 – ISIN NO 0010805872 (the "Bond"), in the context of proposing certain amendments to the terms of the Bond, as set out in the attached copy of the summons and presentation prepared in connection with the bondholders' meeting.
The background for the proposed amendments to the terms of the Bond is the adverse impact on the MPCC group's liquidity which the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, by causing significantly reduced charter rates and utilisation of the group's fleet due to lower containerized freight volumes.
DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA, and Pareto Securities AS have been appointed as financial advisors to MPC Container Ships ASA and MPC Container Ships Invest B.V.
