Update on accession to the lock-up agreement relating to the financial restructuring of the Group

Extension of the accession period to the lock-up agreement relating to the financial restructuring of the Group

Paris, 13 October 2023

Further to its press releases of 5 October 2023 and 11 October 2023, Casino Group announces that by 13 October 2023, the following creditors have acceded to the lock-up agreement relating to its financial restructuring entered into on 5 October 2023 (the "Lock-up Agreement"):

  • creditors economically holding 98.4% of the Term Loan B1 ;

  • principal commercial banking groups and some of the above-mentioned creditors economically holding 90.0% of the RCF2 ;

  • holders of notes issued by Quatrim representing 77.8% of these notes ;

  • 44.0% of unsecured financial creditors (high yield bonds, EMTN notes and NEU CP) ; and

  • 42.7% of perpetual subordinated noteholders holders.

ANNUNCIO PUBBLICITARIO

The Group has decided to extend until Tuesday 17 October 2023 at 18:00 (CET) the last accession date to accede to the Lock-up Agreement, in order to benefit from the right to subscribe to the 275 million euros backstopped capital increase (see press release of 5 October 2023) and the support fee for acceding to the Lock-up Agreement (for unsecured creditors and holders of perpetual subordinated notes only, and it being specified that the amount of this support fee will be set at 40 bps if the plan is approved by a 2/3 majority of unsecured creditors or perpetual subordinated notes holders, as the case may be).

Creditors holding Casino Group debt are invited to refer to the press release dated 5 October 2023 regarding the terms and conditions of accession to the Lock-up Agreement.
