In connection with the revised closing date, OCBC and KS Energy have on Oct 4 agreed that the contingent deferred amount under the terms of a back-end payment, shall be equivalent to the accrued coupon payments and redemption premium owing to OCBC under the existing convertible bonds up to the revised closing date.

KS Energy and OCBC have previously entered into an agreement on Aug 1, 2017 pertaining to the back-end payment. The Aug 1 agreement called on KS Energy to use excess cash from the proceeds of the sale of KS Energy's equity interest in KS Distribution Pte Ltd to pay to OCBC up to the contingent deferred amount as a back-end payment.

OCBC, POEL and Ms Wiluan are existing holders of S$45.0 million worth of convertible bonds due 2017 with a 6 per cent coupon rate at a redemption price of 121.75 per cent of the principal amount. TAEL is an existing holder of S$7.5 million worth of convertible bonds due last year with a 6 per cent coupon rate at a redemption price of 104.19 per cent of the principal amount.
