Consent Solicitation Results Announcement

RNS Number : 0276D
Polyus Gold International Ltd
21 April 2017

         For immediate release                                                                                                   21 April 2017

Polyus Gold International Limited

Consent Solicitation Results Announcement

Polyus Gold International Limited ("PGIL" or the "Issuer"), the largest gold producer in Russia, today formally announces that it has successfully concluded its consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") with respect to its U.S.$750,000,000 5.625 per cent. notes due 2020 (the "Notes") (of which U.S.$750,000,000 is currently outstanding) (Regulation S Global Note ISIN: XS0922301717; Regulation S Global Note Common Code: 092230171; Rule 144A Global Note ISIN: US73180YAA29; Rule 144A Global Note Common Code: 092311686; Rule 144A Global Note CUSIP: 73180Y AA2).

On 27 March 2017, the Issuer launched the Consent Solicitation to make certain modifications to the terms and conditions of the Notes (the "Proposal") as was set out in a consent solicitation memorandum dated 27 March 2017 (the "Consent Solicitation Memorandum"). Copies of the Consent Solicitation Memorandum were made available on the Consent Website (

At a duly convened and quorate meeting on 20 April 2017, the extraordinary resolution proposed at the meeting, adopting the Proposal, was duly passed.

The Issuer was seeking to amend the Conditions (1) to permit a transfer of all of the Issuer's rights and obligations under the Notes and the Trust Deed to a new issuer as is permitted under the terms of the Issuer's US$500 million 4.699 per cent guaranteed notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") and US$800 million 5.250 per cent guaranteed notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes" and, together with the 2022 Notes, the "Existing Notes"), and (2) to align the circumstances in which a guarantee of the Issuer's obligations under the Notes may be provided by PJSC Polyus with the circumstances contemplated by the Existing Notes.

Accordingly, the Issuer was seeking amendments with respect to, among others:

(i)    Condition 4.3 (Merger and Consolidation) to provide for the flexibility for a potential substitution of the Issuer for a New Issuer, incorporated in any of the United Kingdom, the Republic of Cyprus, Ireland, Jersey, Luxembourg or The Netherlands, on the terms set out in Condition 4.3.2(i);

(ii)    further amendments to the Conditions to ensure that, after the transfer of the Issuer's rights and obligations under the Notes to the New Issuer, the financial covenants of the Notes apply to PJSC Polyus (as the holding company and reporting entity of the Group) and its Subsidiaries (or Material Subsidiaries, as applicable); and

(iii)   adding a new Condition 6.5 (Redemption at the option of Noteholders) to allow the Noteholders to exercise a right to cause the redemption or, at the Issuer's discretion, the purchase of their Notes at 101 per cent of the value of the Notes if PJSC Polyus does not issue a Further Guarantee within 180 days after the date of the Noteholders Meeting.

The Notes held in Euroclear or Clearstream, which were blocked pursuant to Consent Instructions submitted by the Noteholders, will be unblocked following the release of this announcement in accordance with the procedures of the relevant Clearing System.

The Payment Date is expected to be no later than five Business Days following the announcement of the results of the Meeting.

With respect to the Consent Solicitation, J.P. Morgan Securities plc, JSC "Sberbank CIB" and SIB (Cyprus) Limited have acted as Solicitation Agents and D.F. King has acted as the Information and Tabulation Agent.

All capitalised but undefined terms used in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the Consent Solicitation Memorandum.

This release may contain "forward-looking statements" concerning PGIL. Generally, the words "will", "may", "should", "could", "would", "can", "continue", "opportunity", "believes", "expects", "intends", "anticipates", "estimates" or similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements relating to future capital expenditures and business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of PGIL's operations. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond PGIL's ability to control or estimate precisely and therefore undue reliance should not be placed on such statements which speak only as at the date of this release.
