Interest on the Notes will be payable half yearly in arrear on 30 June and 31 December in each year. The first payment of interest will be on 31 December 2021 in respect of the period from the date of issue of the Notes to 31 December 2021.
The obligations of the company in respect of the new loan notes are primary obligations of the company. Such obligations will not be secured by the company or any other person, and will not be guaranteed by any other person. The obligations will not be subordinated to any other present or future unsecured obligations of the company, save to the extent provided by law.
Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Notes to be admitted to trading on the International Securities Market of the London Stock Exchange.
It is expected that dealings in the Notes issued pursuant to the placing will commence on or about 4 August 2021.
