DOF ASA & DOF Subsea AS Enters Standstill Agreements with Lenders

Source: 6/30/2020, Location: South America

DOF ASA and DOF Subsea AS are pleased to announce that each of the companies have entered into suspension agreements ("stand-still agreements") with, or received similar concessions from, secured lenders representing 91% of the secured debt of companies within the DOF ASA group (excluding DOF Subsea AS) and 88% of the secured debt of companies within the DOF Subsea AS.

Pursuant to said agreements, payments of principal and interest to the secured lenders, except for servicing of the NOK 100 million credit facility provided to DOF Subsea AS by certain of its lenders on 27 March 2020 to cover its immediate liquidity needs, are suspended until 30 September 2020 on certain customary terms and conditions. Such terms and conditions include customary restrictions on DOF group (the "Group") in the relevant period.

With this continued support from the secured lenders, the standstill under DOF Subsea AS' bond loans will also continue until 30 September 2020 pursuant to the resolutions made at the bondholders' meetings for DOFSUB07, DOFSUB08 and DOFSUB09 on 22 April 2020.

The NOK 100 million credit facility referred to above, which originally expired on 30 June 2020, has also been extended to 30 September 2020 with an agreed repayment of NOK 15 million at the end of each month commencing on 30 June 2020.

The agreements are entered into in order to facilitate the continued dialogue with the secured lenders and bondholders under the Group's bond loans regarding a long-term financial restructuring of the Group.

The suspension agreements comprise all companies within the Group, except for DOF Subsea Brasil Servicos Ltda.

As regards the secured lenders (other than the secured lenders of DOF Subsea Brasil Servicos Ltda.) who have not entered into the suspension agreements or provided a similar concession, DOF ASA and DOF Subsea AS have decided to impose an unilateral stand still on the payment of principal and interest to such secured lenders for as long as the suspension agreements remain in force. One of such secured lenders has requested repayment of in total USD 47 million from DOF Subsea Rederi AS, and also provided notice of repayment to DOF Subsea AS under its guarantee for such debt. Pursuant to the suspension agreement, neither DOF Rederi AS nor DOF Subsea AS is permitted to make any payment to such secured lender, but the Group will, together with its other secured lenders, continue the dialogue with the secured lender to seek to resolve the situation. None of the other lenders who have not entered into the suspension agreements have taken any similar steps under their loans.
