The Series C Resolution authorizes LHIC to make certain amendments to the trust indenture governing the Series C Debentures as set out in the aforementioned Management Information Circular and as summarized below:

  • Extending the maturity date of the Series C Debentures from June 30, 2017 to August 22, 2019;
  • Changing the interest rate payable on the Series C Debentures from 8.0% per annum to 7.0% per annum;

  • Including two additional restrictive covenants to Section 6.04 of the Series C Trust Indenture:
    • the first being to restrict the payment of deferred fees by the Corporation to Lakeview Management Inc. that would reduce the deferred fee balance owing to Lakeview Management Inc. to under $3.1 million until such time as all accrued and unpaid interest on the Series C Debentures has been paid to the Series C Debentureholders.  In connection with the foregoing, the Corporation acknowledges that any of the $3.1 million deferred fees referred to above outstanding as of the maturity date (as amended above) are subordinate to repayment of the principal amount outstanding under the Series C Debentures along with any accrued and unpaid interest payable thereon; and
    • the second to provide that the Corporation may not increase the principal amount of senior debt (other than in connection with the Corporation's hotel in Prince George, British Columbia) beyond the amount outstanding as at the date of the third supplemental indenture unless either (i) Series C Debentureholder approval has been obtained or (ii) the amount in excess of such principal amount is used to pay down the accrued interest and principal on the Series C Debentures and the Corporation's Series D Redeemable Subordinated Debentures on a pro rata basis.
