The pay fixed GBP / receive fixed USD cross currency swap has a 1notional amount of USD$382 million and effectively converts this amount of Concordia's USD debt obligations into a GBP obligation in the amount of approximately GBP 297 million.

Concordia will continue to monitor its currency risks and hedging strategies.
