This agreement in principle is a major step in the implementation of the group's financial restructuring in view of the opening of an accelerated safeguard procedure in the course of March.

It will allow, subject to obtaining the agreement of the credit committees of the institutions concerned and the finalization of the contractual documentation, to satisfy one of the conditions precedent of the lock-up agreement relating to the financial restructuring of the Company concluded on 14 February 2023 with, on the one hand, the group of long-term investors led by the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, including CNP Assurances, MAIF and MACSF, and on the other hand, five institutions holding unsecured debt of ORPEA S.A.

This agreement in principle is exclusively part of the restructuring plan proposed by the Company, intended for the group of investors led by the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations to become the controlling shareholder of the Company.

1. Additional financing via a secured syndicated loan of 600 million euros

Pursuant to the agreement in principle, an additional financing via a secured syndicated loan in the amount of 600 million euros will be made available by lenders including the main banking partners with whom the Company had implemented the June 2022 financing.

This additional secured financing will be made available to Niort 94 and Niort 95, which will hold part of the group's real estate assets.

The implementation of this additional financing should notably enable the group to cover its liquidity needs until the completion of the capital increases.

This additional financing will include the provision of the following credit facilities:

(i) A revolving credit facility, in the amount of 400 million euros, maturing on 30 June 2026;

(ii) Two credit facilities, for a total amount of 200 million euros, maturing on the earliest of the following dates: 31 December 2023 or 5 business days following the completion of all the capital increases.

These credit facilities will bear interest at a rate equal to EURIBOR, plus a margin of 2.00%.

The drawing of these credits will be subject to usual conditions precedent for this type of financing and will also be conditional on the completion of certain stages of the financial restructuring of the Company (including approvals of competent authorities).

The other characteristics of this additional financing will be communicated to the market once the contractual documentation will have been finalised.
