QGOG Constellation Announces Payment of Interest on 2019 Notes and Agreement on Forbearance with Certain Creditors

LUXEMBOURG, June 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- QGOG Constellation S.A. ("QGOG Constellation" or the "Company") today announced that it made a $3.0 million interest payment on its 6.25% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "2019 Notes") within the 30-day grace period it had previously elected to utilize in connection with the 2019 Notes. The delivery of this payment cures all defaults in respect of the 2019 Notes.

The Company had also elected to enter into a 30-day grace period to defer a $27.3 million interest payment on its 9.000% Cash/0.500% PIK Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes"). The Company has determined not to make such payment at this time as it has entered into a forbearance agreement expiring on June 15, 2018 with (i) the holders of over 75% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2024 Notes outstanding, (ii) Banco Bradesco S.A. and (iii) a majority of its project finance lenders.

The Company's determination not to make the interest payment on the 2024 Notes at this time was a strategic decision to facilitate ongoing negotiations with the Company's key stakeholders.  The Company continues to advance these discussions with the aim of a comprehensive re-profiling of its capital structure to match its operating business and the industry's current economic environment.
