Amsterdam, 8 November 2019
Notice is hereby given by the Issuer that in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Notes, each Put Option Noteholder has the option (a "Put Option") to offer any or all of the Put Option Notes held by it to the Issuer for redemption on the Quarterly Instruments Payment Date falling on 17 January 2020 (the "Put Option Date") provided that there is no Principal Deficiency on any Class of Put Option Notes, in accordance with the provisions of the Note Condition 5(f).
To exercise the Put Option the Put Option Noteholder must during the period starting on 8 November 2019 and ending on 3 December 2019 (the "Put Option Period"), give notice to the Issuer and the Principal Paying Agent of such exercise through its custodian and in accordance with the standard procedures of Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (which may include notice being given on his instruction by Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg to the Principal Paying Agent by electronic means) in a form acceptable to Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg from time to time.
The Issuer informs the Put Option Noteholders that it has received a letter from the Seller stating that the Seller, until further notice, does neither purchase nor accept assignment of any Mortgage Receivables on the First Put Option Date and/or on any subsequent Put Option Date.
In accordance with the Note Condition 5(f)(v)(i), the redemption of the Put Option Notes in respect of which a Put Notice was given by the Put Option Noteholder, is subject to acceptance by the Seller or a third party of the repurchase of an equivalent amount of Mortgage Loans.
In the current market circumstances, the Issuer does not expect to succeed in finding any third party which would be interested in purchasing Mortgage Receivables outstanding against the relevant purchase price as set out in the Transaction Documents on or before the upcoming Put Option Date. Consequently, the Issuer expects not to have sufficient funds available to redeem the Put Option Notes on the upcoming Put Option Date.
In the light of the Issuer's expectation that it will not have sufficient funds available to redeem the Notes which are subject to redemption on the Put Date and as to limit the period in which the Notes would unnecessarily be blocked for trading as per the exercise of the Put Option by a Put Option Noteholder up to the Put Date, Put Option Noteholders are hereby informed that a notice confirming that the Notes shall not be redeemed on the Put Date shall be delivered shortly after the expiration of the Put Notice Period. Noteholders that had intended to exercise the Put Option, would the Issuer have been in a position to honour such exercise, or who regardless thereof wish to exercise the Put Option, should deliver a notice of exercise.
Pursuant to the Terms and Conditions of the Notes, Lehman Brothers International (Europe) or any company belonging to the same group of companies as Lehman Brothers International (Europe) holding any Put Option Notes does not have the right to exercise the Put Option.
