Due to First Citizens Bank Limited
This represents the balance on a note issued by the Company on 30 September 1994 as consideration
for $40.0 million redeemable preference shares in the Company's subsidiary First Citizens Bank Limited
(the Bank) and a non-interest-bearing note in the amount of $58.0 million issued by the Bank.
A new agreement was entered into effective 1 October 2000, whereby unpaid interest up to that date
of $11.2 million was capitalised. Thereafter, accrued interest was capitalised semi annually until 30
September 2002 (the end of the moratorium) and this totalled $17.9 million.
The terms of the new agreement are as follows:
- Tenor of 22 years with effect from 1 October 2000;
- Interest rate of 4.5% below prime with a floor rate of 11.5% per annum;
- A moratorium of 2 years on payments for both principal and interest;
- Payment of principal and interest in semi-annual intervals thereafter; and
- Government guaranteed
As at the balance sheet date, there was no interest outstanding (2014: Nil). This note is not transferable.
GORTT is servicing the interest obligations on these loans on behalf of the Company (See Note 11).
