"Rationale for the Offer


Concurrently with the announcement of the Offer, the Offeror has also announced its intention to issue a series of new euro-denominated fixed rate senior secured notes (the New Notes), to be guaranteed by each of the Guarantors, subject to market conditions. The Offeror intends that the net proceeds of the issue of the New Notes will be used by Drax Group Holdings Limited (DGHL) and its subsidiaries and affiliates (together, the Group) for its general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment or prepayment of indebtedness, including pursuant to the Offer (as further described in the relevant Preliminary Offering Memorandum (as defined below)).


The issue of the New Notes and the Offer are intended to extend the Group’s debt maturity profile and reduce the debt refinancing risk of the Group and so optimise the capital structure of the Group. Notes purchased by the Offeror pursuant to the Offer are expected to be cancelled and will not be re-issued or re-sold. DGHL is a Guarantor of the Notes.


The Group does not intend to exercise the call option on the Notes at any point ahead of maturity.


Any Notes that are not tendered as part of the Offer are intended to remain outstanding in accordance with their existing terms and conditions."
