QGOG Constellation Announces Agreement on Further Forbearance with Certain Creditors



LUXEMBOURG, June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- QGOG Constellation S.A. ("QGOG Constellation" or the "Company") today announced that it has entered into a further forbearance agreement with respect to a $27.3 million interest payment due on its 9.000% Cash/0.500% PIK Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes").

The Company had previously 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.  These parties and the Company have agreed to a further forbearance agreement expiring June 22, 2018.

The Company's determination not to make the interest payment on the 2024 Notes at this time is 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.

Finally, the Company's subsidiary, QGOG Atlantic / Alaskan Rigs Ltd., intends to satisfy all remaining obligations under its 5.25% Senior Secured Notes due on July 30, 2018. Those remaining obligations are expected to be fully satisfied by the amounts currently deposited as cash collateral and by the Atlantic Star rig's operational cash flows until the maturity date.
