Reference is made to the stock exchange release on 3 May 2017, where Marine Harvest announced that it had exercised its right to redeem the outstanding bonds under the EUR 375 million five year convertible bond issued by Marine Harvest in 2014, maturing on 6 May 2019 (ISIN NO 001 0710395), at par value plus accrued interest.
The loan agreement provided the bondholders the period up to and including 11 May 2017 to convert their bonds into shares.
Bondholders representing an aggregate principal loan amount of EUR 353.9 million have elected to convert their bonds into shares. The conversion price is EUR 9.3458 per share. Marine Harvest will accordingly issue 37.9 million new shares. The new shares will be issued on 19 May 2017. As a consequence some of the bondholders will receive the shares earlier than the conversion date pursuant to the loan agreement. Such early delivery shall not amend or affect the bondholders' rights under the loan agreement.
