JZ Capital Ptnrs Ltd: Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock Interest Payment

Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock Interest Payment


25 September 2020

Further to the announcement on 17 September 2020, JZ Capital Partners Limited
("JZCP" or the "Company"), the London listed fund that invests in US and
European micro-cap companies and US real estate, today announces that it has
received consent from Guggenheim Partners to make the upcoming interest
payment due on 30 September 2020 to the holders of its Convertible Unsecured
Loan Stock due 2021 ("CULS"). The Company had announced previously that it
expected it would breach its minimum asset coverage ratio under its senior
facility with Guggenheim Partners by the end of September 2020, which absent a
waiver or consent being obtained, would have prohibited the Company from
making the interest payment falling due on the CULS on 30 September.

The consent remains subject to a limited number of customary conditions
precedent, including no events of default occurring under the CULS or its
senior facility (save for a breach of the minimum asset coverage ratio), which
the Company expects to satisfy prior to the interest payment date on 30
September and therefore the Company expects to make the CULS interest payment
in full on 30 September 2020.

Otherwise, whilst the Company still expects to breach its minimum asset
coverage ratio under its senior facility with Guggenheim Partners at the end
of September, the Company and its lenders remain in ongoing discussions to
procure a waiver of this breach and make certain further amendments to the
Company's current lending arrangements with its lenders. The abovementioned
consent in respect of the CULS interest payment falling due on 30 September
requires the Company to have entered into an amendment to its senior facility
by 7 October 2020; the failure to do so would constitute an event of default
under the facility. The Company currently expects that it will have reached
agreement with its lenders as to the amended terms of the facility within that
timeframe. For the avoidance of doubt, any event of default under the senior
facility that is continuing on any subsequent interest payment date under the
CULS would prohibit the Company from making future interest payments to the
holders of the CULS, absent a waiver, a further consent or the amended terms
of the facility being agreed by such date and thereby allowing for such
payments to be made.

The Company will make further announcements as required in relation to the
status of discussions with its lenders as matters progress.
