Marine Harvest ASA: MHG - EUR 340 million Convertible Bond Agreement 2015/2020 ISIN NO 001 0748742- Exercise of conversion
Reference is made to the stock exchange release issued on 7 November 2018, where Marine Harvest announced that it had exercised its right to redeem the outstanding bonds under the EUR 340 million five year convertible bond issued by Marine Harvest in 2015, maturing on 5 November 2020 (ISIN NO 001 0748742) par value plus accrued interest.
The loan agreement provided the bondholders the period up to and including 15 November 2018 to convert their bonds into shares.
Bondholders representing an aggregate principal loan amount of EUR 211.2 million have elected to convert their bonds into shares. The conversion price is EUR 13.0630 per share. Marine Harvest will accordingly issue approximately 16.2 million new shares. The new shares will be issued on or about 22 November 2018. As a consequence, some of the bondholders will receive the shares earlier than the conversion date pursuant to the loan agreement. Such early delivery shall not amend or affect the bondholders' rights under the loan agreement.
In addition, the company received a conversion notice of EUR 0.5 million on 6 November 2018, one day prior to exercising the call option, and will arrange for conversion in accordance with the bond agreement.
