We believe that the proposal is attractive, with a substantial premium offered to noteholders. The $107 offer represents a $4 premium above the $103 option on the first call date of 17 April 2017. Under the resolution, if exercised on the last date possible the return would be 11.63%, compared to 4.90% if redeemed at the first call date.
