We refer to the announcement dated 10 May 2019, regarding a contemplated bond issue for Atlantica Tender Drilling Limited (“ATDL”). Due to adverse market conditions, ATDL was not able to conclude the contemplated bond issue. ATDL has therefore been discussing extending the maturity date of its existing bank facility (23 August 2019) and bond issue (23 September 2019) by approximately one year. The lenders under the bank facility have granted ATDL a temporary extension of the maturity date until 20 September 2019 with a view to finalise the ongoing discussions between the company and its secured creditors.

In the beginning of Q2 2019, Atlantica surpassed 4 years with a lost time injury. We are extremely pleased with the safety performance of both units. This achievement demonstrates that the teams onboard both units have committed to and embraced the need to work with the company’s QHSE management system.

Atlantica Tender Drilling Limited (the “Company”) has received credit approvals from a syndicate of new and existing lenders for a new 4-year USD 100 million first lien term loan facility (the “Term Loan”). The Company has further mandated DNB Markets and Pareto Securities as Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners and Danske Bank and SpareBank1 Markets as Joint Bookrunners to arrange a series of fixed income investor meetings. A USD 140 million, 4-year, second lien bond issue (the “Bond Issue”) may follow, subject to market conditions. Proceeds from the Term Loan and the Bond Issue will be used to refinance the Company’s existing bank and bond debt.
