GRAND CITY PROPERTIES S.A. ANNOUNCES SUCCESSFUL EXCHANGE AND TENDER OFFER SUPPORTING CREDIT METRICS AND FFO. ISSUING NEW BENCHMARK PERPETUAL NOTE.

Luxembourg, April 10, 2024 – Grand City Properties S.A. (“GCP” or the “Company”) announces the successful results of voluntary exchange offer of two of the Company’s perpetual notes (the “Offer”).

82% or €449 million of aggregate nominal amount of existing perpetual notes were submitted into the offers and subsequently accepted by the Company. As a result, the Company will issue ca. €410 million of new perpetual notes and simultaneously repurchase €34 million of existing perpetual notes via the tender offer (see detailed breakdown further below).

The result of the offer supports the Company’s credit metrics under S&P’s credit rating methodology as the new notes regain the 50% equity content under S&P methodology. Under IFRS and for all bond covenants, all notes, including the perpetual notes which have not been exchanged, remain 100% equity. As a result of the exchange and the buyback, GCP will see a long-term reduction in perpetual note coupon payments going forward, which is FFO accretive.
