Cash distributions from the PE Funds are received by the Issuer. The Issuer then pays out available cash through the Priority of Payments semi-annually.

Below is a simplified illustration of the cash flow and Priority of Payments.

  1. Reserves Accounts
    Cash build up to repay principal of Class A-1 Bonds and Class A-2 Bonds on 20 June 2024
  2. Sponsor Sharing
    Enables a faster build up of reserves
  3. Maximum Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio
    Debt level limit at 50% - crossing this limit triggers lowering of Total Net Debt
  4. Credit Facility
    Allows Issuer to draw down from bank to pay senior payments and expenses, and interest payments of Bonds and capital calls in the event of shortfall
