Extension of Consent Solicitation and Invitation to Management Call to be held on 5 December

Berlin, 01.12.2023

As previously announced on 22 November 2023, Tele Columbus AG (the “Company”) and all members of an ad hoc group of its financial creditors (the “Ad-Hoc Group”) have entered into a lock-up agreement, appending a commercial term sheet, pursuant to which, among other matters, such creditors have agreed to support an extension of maturities of the debt and provide their consents to the Preliminary SSN Consents and SFA Consent Request (as defined below), in connection with the contribution by the Company’s indirect shareholder of €300 million of equity (the “Lock-Up Agreement”).

The Company requests lenders under the SFA (the “Lenders”) and holders of the SSNs (the “Noteholders”) to accede to the Lock-Up Agreement as soon as possible, instructions for which are contained in the press release dated 22 November 2023. Noteholders and Lenders who accede to the Lock-Up Agreement by 12 December 2023 will be eligible to receive the Early Consent Fee and the Late Consent Fee, as defined in the Lock-Up Agreement.

As an initial step of the Transaction, the Company has also launched (i) a consent solicitation in relation to the SSNs and (ii) a consent request in relation to the SFA seeking consents from the Noteholders and Lenders to, among other things, extend the grace period for the non-payment of interest under the SSNs and provide waivers for any defaults that may arise as a result of the Company implementing the Transaction (the “Preliminary SSN Consents” and “SFA Consent Request” (as applicable)).

We are pleased to announce that by majority Noteholder consent, certain documentary amendments (the “Majority Consent Proposals” as defined in the consent solicitation) have been implemented in respect of the SSNs by a supplemental indenture, including an extension of the grace period for the non-payment of interest under the SSNs.

We would like to announce that the consent deadline for the Preliminary SSN Amendments, which was originally 1 December has been extended further to 12 December, 2023. For a detailed description, please refer to this link: CLICK HERE

The Company requests any Lenders or Noteholders who have yet to consent to the Preliminary SSN Consents and SFA Consent requests do so as soon as possible.

In addition, and to aid Lenders and Noteholders in deciding to accede to the Lock-Up Agreement, the Company will be hosting a Management Call on Tuesday, 5 December 2023 at 9:00am GMT (10:00am CET) to give a brief summary of the current performance, business plan and contemplated transaction and also answer key investor questions.
