Prior to the Closing (as defined below), certain affiliates of Bain Capital (“Bain”), through various parent affiliates of the Issuer controlled by Bain beneficially owned 48,520,671 ordinary shares of the Issuer (the “PIKCo Shares”).
Pursuant to an indenture, dated as of May 30, 2014 (the “Indenture”), by and among Atalaya Luxco PIKCo, a partnership limited by shares (société en commandite par actions) organized under the laws of Grand Duchy of Luxembourg whose registered office is located at 4, rue Lou Hemmer, L-1748 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and registered with the Luxembourg Register of Commerce and Companies under number B986929 (“Atalaya”), as issuer, acting through its general partner Atalaya PIKco, a private limited liability company (société à responsabilité limitée) incorporated and existing under the laws of Luxembourg, having its registered office at 4, rue Lou Hemmer, L-1748 Luxembourg, and registered with the R.C.S. Luxembourg under number B187036 (“PIKCo GP”), Atalaya Luxco Topco, a partnership limited by shares (société en commandite par actions) organized under the laws of Luxembourg , whose registered office is located at 4, rue Lou Hemmer, L-1748 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and registered with the R.C.S.

In connection with the issuance of the Senior PIK Notes, PIKCo GP pledged 100% of the shares in PIKco as security for the Senior PIK Notes (the “Collateral”). As the maturity date of the Senior PIK Notes approached, HPS engaged in discussions with the Atalaya Entities regarding the forfeiture of a portion of the PIKCo Shares in lieu of the forfeiture of the Collateral securing the Senior PIK Notes held by Mezzanine Offshore, Mezzanine Onshore, Mezzanine Partners II Institutional Lux S.à r.l II (“Mezzanine Institutional”) and Mezzanine Partners II AP Lux S.à r.l II (“Mezzanine AP,” together with Mezzanine Offshore, Mezzanine Onshore and Mezzanine Institutional, the “Holders”) in order to satisfy the obligations of the Atalaya Entities under the Senior PIK Notes held by the Holders.
