Auna S.A.A. Announces Expiration and Receipt of Requisite Consents with Respect to Consent Solicitation for Senior Notes due 2025

MEXICO CITY and LIMA, Peru, June 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Auna S.A.A. ("Auna" or the "Company") announced today the expiration of its previously announced solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") of consents (the "Consents") and receipt of the requisite Consents from holders (the "Holders") of Auna's outstanding 6.500% Senior Notes due 2025 (the "Notes") to effect a certain amendment to the indenture governing the Notes (as amended from time to time, the "Indenture"), as described in the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated May 24, 2023 (the "Consent Solicitation Statement"). As of 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on June 7, 2023 (such time and date, the "Expiration Date"), the Holders of at least a majority of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes had validly delivered and had not validly revoked Consents to the Proposed Amendment (the "Requisite Consents"). As of the Expiration Date, Auna had accepted all Consents validly delivered pursuant to the Consent Solicitation. Accordingly, Auna and the trustee will enter into a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the Indenture effecting the Proposed Amendment (as defined in the Consent Solicitation Statement).

Auna will pay to Holders who delivered valid and unrevoked Consents to the Proposed Amendment on or prior to the Expiration Date (the "Consenting Holders") an amount equal to U.S.$1.25 per U.S.$1,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes (the "Consent Payment") to The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") for the benefit of the Consenting Holders, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement. Auna expects to pay, or cause to be paid, the Consent Payment on June 8, 2022 (the "Settlement Date"). No accrued interest will be paid in respect of the Consent Payment. Although the Supplemental Indenture and the related Proposed Amendment will become effective immediately upon execution at the Consent Time (as defined in the Consent Solicitation Statement), such Proposed Amendment will not be operative until the Consent Payment to DTC for the benefit of the Holders is paid on the Settlement Date. 

The Consent Solicitation was made solely by the Consent Solicitation Statement and on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement. This announcement is for information purposes only and is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any security and is not a solicitation of consents with respect to the Proposed Amendment or any securities. The Consent Solicitation was not made in any jurisdiction in which, or to or from any person to or from whom, it is unlawful to make such solicitation under applicable state or foreign securities or blue sky laws.

Banco BTG Pactual S.A. – Cayman Branch, HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Santander US Capital Markets LLC acted as the Solicitation Agents for the Consent Solicitation. Global Bondholder Services Corporation acted as the Information and Tabulation Agent for the Consent Solicitation.
