SIMEC ATLANTIS ENERGY LIMITED
(“SAE”, the “Company” and, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”)
SAE in discussions with Abundance Investment Limited regarding Atlantis Ocean Energy PLC debentures
SAE has entered into discussions with Abundance Investment Limited regarding extending the timing of the repayment of the Atlantis Ocean Energy PLC debentures. As previously disclosed, the Atlantis Ocean Energy PLC debentures were issued in 2017 and the principal of £4.95m is currently due for repayment on 30 June 2022.
The following communication will be issued to Atlantis Ocean Energy debentures holders today:
“As you know, we are due to repay your capital with a final interest payment on 30 June 2022. We have been making steady progress on the development of our sustainable energy projects, in particular at our Uskmouth site, and expect these projects to deliver a significant income stream to the Company. It has become clear, however, that as a result of delays to these projects, we will need more time to repay the Atlantis Ocean Energy debentures.
We will write to you shortly to provide you with full details and to formally request an extension to the repayment date of the debentures and potentially a short deferral of the upcoming interest payment. We intend to repay the debentures in full and to continue to pay interest until repayment, but we are requesting this extension in order to give us time to realise value from our projects.”
A further update will be provided by the Company as discussions progress.
