NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

The holders of Delete Group Oyj’s (“Delete” or the “Issuer“) secured fixed rate notes due 2021 (ISIN FI4000252119) (the “Notes“) (the “Noteholders“) have approved certain amendments requested by Delete to the terms and conditions of the Notes (the “Terms and Conditions“) and authorised Nordic Trustee Oy (the “Agent“) to take certain actions on their behalf (the “Requests“) in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the notice of written procedure dated 16 December 2020 (the “Notice“).

However, the amendments to the Terms and Conditions shall become effective on the date when the Agent is satisfied that the conditions for effectiveness of the requested amendments set out in the Notice have been satisfied (or waived), provided that such date must in any case be no later the Long Stop Date.
