ShaMaran is pleased to announce that the Proposal has been approved with the full support of all of the Bondholders voting on the Proposal. This approval will permit the Company to use its "free cash" in excess of USD 15 million to buy back its Bonds in the market to satisfy the cash sweep redemption requirement agreed in last Summer's amendment and restatement of the Bond Terms. All Bonds so re-purchased will be retired by the Company. Should the Company not be able to buy sufficient Bonds in the market at commercially attractive rates then any remaining amount of "free cash" shall be used to redeem that principal amount of Bonds at par on a pro rata basis.
Dr. Adel Chaouch, President and Chief Executive Officer of ShaMaran commented: "We are pleased to receive today's full support of the Bondholders who voted on the Company's Proposal. The terms of the Proposal are now being implemented and will provide ShaMaran added financial flexibility to strengthen the Company's financial position."
