Warning Notices and Service Failure Points


On 11 November 2020 University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire Trust ("UHCW") issued two warning notices in respect of the accumulation of Service Failures Points ("SFPs") on two of the services provided by the Hard Services Provider, Vinci Facilities ("Vinci")", causing the level of SFPs within a 6 month rolling period to breach thresholds set out in the Project Agreement. This also constitutes a Trigger Event under the Collateral Deed.

In addition, on 24 November 2020 the Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust ("CWPT") awarded SFPs that breach thresholds set out in the Project Agreement. On 30 November CWPT issued Warning Notices in relation to these threshold breaches. The level of points awarded by CWPT constitutes an Event of Default under the Collateral Deed. The award of these SFPs is disputed by the Hard Services Provider. Project Co intends to make a referral to the Dispute Resolution Procedure under the Project Agreement in relation to such.

The occurrence of Events of Default provides the Credit Provider with certain rights in respect of the Project. As at the date of this announcement, the Credit Provider has reserved its rights to exercise any of the rights available to them beyond placing the Project into distribution lock-up.
