DTEK LAUNCHES CASH TENDER OFFER AND CONSENT SOLICITATION


12 SEPTEMBER 2023


Full announcement available via EURONEXT


"DTEK Holdings Limited (the “Offeror”) and DTEK Energy B.V. (the “Issuer”) announced today an invitation to the holders of the 7.0/7.5% Senior Secured PIK Toggle Notes due 2027, originally issued by DTEK Finance plc, with DTEK Energy B.V. as successor issuer to DTEK Finance plc (ISIN: XS2342930521) (the “Notes”) to:

...


"Background and Rationale for the Tender Offer


The Group is launching the Tender Offer alongside the Consent Solicitation, aiming to further repay its debt and align its leverage with market levels for comparable companies. The Group’s management has carefully analysed current liquidity, near-term operational needs of the Group against its current and forthcoming receipts under accumulated accounts receivable for the past periods, the burden of further payments for the outstanding Notes, multiple risks and limitations on its trading and expenditures. Based on these considerations, management has come to the view that, under the current wartime conditions and volatile, inflationary macro-economic environment, it would be economically beneficial for both the Noteholders and the Group’s overall financial performance to conduct additional repayments via an unmodified Dutch auction mechanism. The Tender Offer is structured as an unmodified Dutch auction, in a manner identical to the Discounted Notes Repurchase announced in November 2022 and the previous tender offers recently completed by the Group."

Background


On The Group’s Operations


On 24 February 2022, the Russian Federation commenced an invasion of Ukraine resulting in a full-scale war across the Ukrainian state, which had impact on all areas of the Ukrainian economy in response to which the Government of Ukraine declared martial law and the National Bank of Ukraine imposed a moratorium on cross-border payments. On 28 February 2022, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Ukraine confirmed that the ongoing hostilities had resulted in the occurrence of a force majeure situation in Ukraine.


The situation in Ukraine remains very uncertain and volatile. The war continues and, since October 2022, the Group (as defined in the Indenture) and the nation have endured massive missile attacks targeting the entire energy infrastructure of Ukraine. The Group’s assets and operations, continue to face ongoing threats from the increased targeted illegal bombardment of civilian and energy infrastructure across Ukrainian cities, resulting in significant damage to a number of power generation, networks and distribution facilities. As the duration and impact of the war in Ukraine remains unclear at this time, it remains not possible to reliably estimate full severity of the consequences, or their impact on the financial position and results of the Group for future periods.


As a result, the Group has experienced a number of significant challenges and disruptions, which could have a material impact on the Group’s performance over the following periods and could cause actual results to differ materially from expected and historical results. Taking into account the uncertainties of the war and restrictions on the Group’s export trading, it should also be noted that any potential further actions by the National Bank of Ukraine could affect the Group’s future payments under the bonds. In this environment it remains critical that the Group continues to proactively manage its debt maturity and repayment, so as to provide for a more stable capital structure, to enable it to protect its assets, operations and employees.


The Completed Discounted Repurchase and the Tender Offer


As announced in November 2022, the Group has completed a Discounted Notes Repurchase (as defined in the Indenture) pursuant to Section 3.09(b) of the Indenture based on the daily average excess cash of approximately U.S.$32.5 million during the first half of 2022. This excess cash amount has allowed the Group to repurchase approximately $154 million in the nominal amount of Notes. The concluded repurchase process has also demonstrated that there remained significant unfilled supply from the holders of the Notes. On 16 December 2022, the Group also completed a repurchase of U.S.$80,035,658 in the aggregate principal amount of Notes pursuant to a further voluntary unmodified Dutch auction tender offer (the “Second Repurchase”).


The Group’s management has further carefully analysed current liquidity, near-term operational needs of the Group against its current and forthcoming receipts under accumulated accounts receivable for the past period, the burden of further payments for the outstanding Notes, multiple risks and limitations on its trading and expenditures. Based on these considerations, management has come to the view that, under the current unforeseen circumstances, wartime, and volatile, inflationary macro-economic environment, it would be preferrable and economically supportive for the Noteholders and to the Group’s overall economic results to


conduct additional repayments via an unmodified Dutch Auction mechanism. Based on the outlined management analysis and considerations and under the current circumstances, the Group supervisory board considers the Tender Offer to be in the best interest of the Group creditors and all stakeholders. The Tender Offer is structured as an unmodified Dutch auction, in a manner identical to the Discounted Notes Repurchase and the Second Repurchase recently completed by the Group.
