FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1 February 2022

 

Cineworld Group plc ("Cineworld" or the "Group")

Update on Regal dissenting shareholders agreement

 

 

Cineworld today announces that it has initiated discussions with former dissenting shareholders of Regal Entertainment Group (the "Regal Litigation Parties") in relation to a potential rescheduling of the Group's payment obligations under the unsecured facility agreement relating to the settlement reached with such shareholders (the "Unsecured Facility Agreement"), which was announced on 10 September 2021. In order to facilitate these discussions, Cineworld has obtained waivers of, or undertakings to waive, any events of default arising from non-payment under the Unsecured Facility Agreement from various other creditors. These creditors include certain holders of Cineworld's guaranteed convertible bond due 2025 as well as the lenders under certain of its existing debt facilities.

Cineworld has initiated discussions with the Regal Litigation Parties with the aim of maximising its available liquidity and is hopeful that a satisfactory agreement can be reached within the period afforded by the waivers.

A further announcement will be made as and when appropriate.
