Access Bank Plc announces an intention to refinance the 2017 Notes
Access Bank Plc (the "Bank") has announced that it expects, in September 2016, to commence refinancing of the existing senior unsecured U.S.$350 million 7.25 per cent. notes due July 2017 (the "2017 Notes") issued by the Bank's wholly owned subsidiary, Access Finance B.V., a private company with limited liability organised under the laws of the Netherlands. The Bank is considering all options for this refinancing, including a potential exchange offer. The Bank's current expectation is that this refinancing, if commenced, would be for an uncapped amount, excluding U.S. holders.
