The Housing Finance Corporation Limited
Partial early redemption of £500,004 of 8.625% Debenture Stock 2023
ISIN: GB0004398318 (“Original ISIN”)
To the holders of 8.625% Debenture Stock 2023 (the 'Stock') constituted and secured pursuant to a Trust Deed between THFC (1) and The Law Debenture Trust Corporation p.l.c. (2) dated 13 October 1993 and deeds supplemental thereto between the same parties (together the 'Trust Deed')
Following a Borrower's Optional Redemption, Stock with an Outstanding Principal Amount of £500,004 representing approximately 0.27% of the Stock in issue will be redeemed on 13 May 2019 in accordance with clause 4(F) of the Trust Deed at a price of £134.264 per £100 of the Outstanding Principal Amount of the Stock to be redeemed together with interest accrued but unpaid. This price has been calculated in accordance with condition 3(1) of the conditions applicable to the Stock and in accordance with the provisions of the Trust Deed.
The redemption of 8.625% Debenture Stock 2023 (the "Redemption") will be effected pro rata to holdings of Stock on the register at the close of business on 13 May 2019 (the "Redemption Date").
Fractions of Stock produced by the Redemption ratio will not be redeemed and so the Outstanding Principal Amount of Stock to be redeemed from each stockholder will be rounded to the nearest whole number.
THFC currently has £188,100,000 8.625% Debenture Stock in issue. All of the Stock redeemed on the Redemption Date will be cancelled.
Payments of redemption monies are expected to be effected either through CREST (in the case of Stock held in uncertificated form) or by cheque (in the case of Stock held in certificated form) on or around 21 May 2019. Any stock certificates for the balance of the holding will be distributed to stockholders on or around 20 May 2019. Original certificate(s) will have no further value and should be destroyed or returned to the Registrar, Link Asset Services Limited, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, BR3 4TU, for destruction.
The Stock will be disabled in CREST on the Redemption Date and the Original ISIN number will expire. The new ISIN number GB00BJLSSR88 (the "New ISIN") in respect of the remaining Stock which has not been redeemed will be enabled and available for transactions after 13 May 2019. For the period up to and including the Redemption Date, Stock will be traded under the Original ISINs and as such, a purchaser of such Stock may have a market claim for a proportion of the redemption proceeds following the activation of the New ISINs. CREST will automatically transfer any open transactions as at the Redemption Date to the New ISINs.
