In the proceedings involving PRPL, the Brazilian Court granted PRPL’s motion for clarification and recognized the original moratorium order (in respect of PRPL) in Brazil. The Brazilian Court further granted PRPL’s request to extend the moratorium period until 31 January 2022 – also in accordance with the Moratorium Extension Orders made by the Singapore Court on 13 September 2021.
Prosafe SE and PRPL further wish to announce that on 21 October 2021, the Sanction Orders were lodged with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Singapore, meaning that the Scheme Effective Date was achieved on 21 October 2021.
These are important milestones which will provide further certainty in the overall restructuring process.
