Deliverable Obligations

Final List

Auction Settlement Terms

Auction Settlement Terms

Note: The DC understands that holders of the Notes specified on the Final List may have blocked the transfer of such Notes prior to the Auction taking place. In addition, entitlement to the Scheme consideration is expected to be fixed by reference to the identity of the holders prior to the Auction taking place.

Therefore, the expectation is that all Representative Auction-Settled Transactions will be settled by delivery of the relevant Composite Package (being the entitlement to the replacement assets in respect of the relevant Notes under the Scheme). To the extent that the Composite Package is delivered in lieu of delivery of the relevant Notes, each asset making up the Composite Package must be delivered in the same proportion to the relevant Notes as would apply under the Scheme. Further details are provided in the Auction Settlement Terms.

Notes are only expected to be directly transferred in settlement of Representative Auction-Settled Transactions to the extent that the Scheme does not proceed and the Reference Entity’s Support Agreement is terminated.
