Main changes to the Trust Agreement derived from the amendments to the Mexican Securities Market Law and the Mexican General Regulations Applicable to Securities Issuers
- Additional authorities of the Holders’ Meeting. The Holders’ Meeting will now have the following additional authorities and obligations: (a) approve the indebtedness policies of the Trust as submitted by the Subsidiary, and approve any indebtedness of the Trust that is contrary to such policies, (b) approve any amendment to the investment policies of the Trust, and any Investment that does not comply with such investment policies, (c) approve any amendments in the advisory fees, subsidiary fees and any other compensation plans or any management or other fee payable to the Advisor, the Subsidiary, the members of the Technical Committee, or any other third party, (d) approve the removal of the Subsidiary and (e) approve transactions with related parties that represent 10% or more of the trust equity.
- Maximum Leverage Limit and Debt Service Coverage Ratio. The maximum amount of the Trust’s indebtedness may not exceed 50% of the book value of the assets of the trust estate measured as of the end of the last quarter, and the Trust will have to have a debt service coverage ratio that is 1.0 or above. Likewise, the Trust must comply with additional periodic reporting obligations related to the leverage limit and debt service coverage ratio, and the Subsidiary must submit to the Holders’ Meeting a corrective plan approved by the Technical Committee in the event the leverage limit of the Trust exceeds the maximum leverage limit or is below the debt service coverage ratio limit.
- Indebtedness Committee. An Indebtedness Committee will be created, which will be responsible for monitoring the mechanisms and controls in order to verify that each incurrence of indebtedness by the Trust is in accordance with the applicable regulations.
- Legal actions against the Subsidiary. Holders that, individually or jointly, represent 15% or more outstanding CBFIs may initiate legal action against the Subsidiary for breach of its obligations under the Trust Agreement.
Additionally, the proposal to eliminate the provision that sets forth that the distributions to holders may only be made to the extent the financial statements of the Trust have been approved by the Technical Committee, since such provision only allows for annual distributions.
Amendments to the Advisory Agreement:
The proposal to expand the Advisory Fee definition and the manner in which it is calculated and payable to the Advisor, in order to reflect, for the benefit of the Holders, pro rata adjustments in connection with the properties that form part of the Trust Estate for a shorter period than a complete Advisory Fee payment period.
