AEGEA Finance S.à r.l. Announces Successful Results Of Consent Solicitation For Its 5.750% Senior Notes Due 2024

SÃO PAULO, Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — AEGEA Finance S.à r.l. (theIssuer”), which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AEGEA Saneamento e Participações S.A. (“Aegea”), announced today the successful results of its previously announced consent solicitation involving its 5.750% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”).

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 1, 2021 (the “Expiration Date”) holders of US$341,725,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, or approximately 85% of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes, had validly delivered their consents pursuant to the consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”), upon the terms and conditions described in the Issuer’s Consent Solicitation Statement, dated August 18, 2021 (the “Statement”).  As of the date of the Statement, the outstanding principal amount of the Notes, excluding Notes held by affiliates of the Issuer (which were not eligible to vote for purposes of the Consent Solicitation), was US$399,800,000.

Based on the number of consents delivered pursuant to the Consent Solicitation on or prior to the Expiration Date, holders of a majority of the outstanding principal amount of Notes have validly delivered consents to certain proposed amendments as described in the Statement (the “Proposed Amendments”).  As a result, the Proposed Amendments are expected to become effective on or promptly following the date hereof upon the execution of the supplemental indenture to the indenture, dated as of October 10, 2017 (the “Indenture”), among the Issuer, Aegea and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee.

The revocation deadline for the Consent Solicitation has passed and therefore consents that have been validly delivered cannot be revoked. The settlement date on which the Issuer expects to pay an aggregate amount of US$6,000,000 for the benefit, on a pro rata basis, of each holder for which consents were delivered and accepted in the Consent Solicitation is expected to be September 3, 2021.

The supplemental indenture reflecting the Proposed Amendments will be effective and operative immediately upon execution thereof. Holders of Notes for which no consent was delivered will not receive the consent payment, even though the Proposed Amendments, once operative with respect to the Notes, will bind all holders of such Notes and their transferees.

King & Co., Inc. has been retained to serve as the information, tabulation and paying agent.
