MADRID, April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- International Airport Finance, S.A. (the "Issuer") announced today that it is soliciting consents (the "Consent Solicitation") from all registered holders (individually, a "Holder," and collectively, the "Holders") of its 12.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2033 (the "Notes"), upon the terms and conditions described in the Issuer's Consent Solicitation Statement, dated April 19, 2021 (the "Statement"), to certain proposed amendments that seek to amend the covenant (the "waterfall" provision) in the Issuer Security and Accounts Agreement, dated as of March 14, 2019 (the "Issuer Security and Accounts Agreement"), among the Issuer and Citibank, N.A., as trustee, notes collateral agent and notes account bank, that governs transfers from the Issuer Collections Account in order to permit the Issuer to use funds on deposit in the Issuer Collections Account to pay fees, costs, expenses or reimbursements related to (i) its business and operations, including without limitation taxes, and (ii) the issuance and offering of Additional Notes or any amendments or waivers to or consents under the Notes Documents (the "Proposed Amendments"). The Issuer believes that these changes would provide the Issuer with additional operational efficiencies. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein have the meanings given to them in the Statement.

The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on April 30, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Issuer in its sole discretion (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Date"). The record date of the Consent Solicitation is 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 16, 2021.

The Consent Solicitation is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary conditions described in the Statement, including receiving the consents of holders (in minimum denominations of US$200,000 and integral multiples of US$1,000 in excess thereof, subject to a scaling factor of the current par amount of US$997.68) of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes (the "Required Consents"). In accordance with the Indenture, Notes owned by the Issuer, Corporación Quiport S.A. (the "Borrower"), the shareholders of the Issuer or the Borrower or any of their respective affiliates will not be deemed outstanding, and such persons will not be able to vote for the purposes of the Required Consents needed to effect the Proposed Amendments.

In the event that the Required Consents for the Notes are received on or prior to the Expiration Date, the Issuer will pay an aggregate cash payment equal to US$0.30 per US$1,000 principal amount of the Notes (the "Consent Payment") for which the Required Consents to the Proposed Amendments are validly delivered on or prior to the Expiration Date and not validly revoked prior to the earlier to occur of (i) the receipt of the Required Consents and (ii) the Expiration Date. The Consent Payment is expected to be paid on a date promptly following the Expiration Date, but no later than five business days following the Expiration Date.

The amendment to the Issuer Security and Accounts Agreement reflecting the Proposed Amendments will be effective and operative immediately upon execution thereof as to all Holders, whether or not such Holders delivered a Consent.
