(hereinafter referred to as “the Borrower”), in which the Issuer holds 100% of shares and votes at the General Meeting, and an entity not affiliated with the Issuer, Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. (“the Lender”), executed an amendment (“the Amendment”) to a consortium loan agreement entered into on 28/02/2008 between the Borrower and a consortium of banks comprised of ING Bank Śląski S.A. and Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. (“the Loan Agreement”), and information concerning the execution of the said Agreement was disclosed by the Issuer in the Current Report No. 12/2008 of 29/02/2008.
Prior to entering into the Amendment, i.e. on 27/12/2017, an amendment to the Loan Agreement was executed between the Borrower and ING Bank Śląski S.A. and Bank Zachodni WBK S.A., as the existing consortium of lending banks, under which ING Bank Śląski S.A. assigned (the assignment of receivables) to Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. its receivables against the Borrower arising from the loan granted within the framework of the bank consortium (“the ING's Receivables”), and Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. accepted the said assignment becoming thus the sole lender. In addition to the ING's Receivables, also all the entitlements, rights and claims, and all the risks and obligations relating to the ING's Receivables were assigned to Bank Zachodni WBK S.A..
In accordance with the provisions of the Amendment and for the purpose thereof, the period of financing provided under the Loan Agreement has been extended.
The amount of loan granted under the Amendment is EUR 25,000,000.
The loan repayment date set out in the amendment to the Loan Agreement is 31/12/2022.
The interest on the loan given under the Amendment was based on EURIBOR rate plus a margin determined under arm's length conditions.
In addition to securities provided under the Loan Agreement, and apart from the changes arising out of the loan repayment date and loan amount changed by the Amendment, the following have been included:
