Talbot Hughes McKillop advises the Issuers and Borrowers on the £2.2bn Restructuring of the Punch A and Punch B Securitisations

on .

Talbot Hughes McKillop LLP (THM) is pleased to announce the completion of the financial restructuring of Punch Taverns Plc (Punch) on 8 October 2014.

Punch is one of the UK's largest leased pub groups with a portfolio of 3,835 pubs nationwide and also holds a 50% shareholding in Matthew Clark, a leading UK drinks wholesaler and distributor.  Punch is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is financed via two separate securitisation structures (Punch A and Punch B or the Securitisations) with noteholder debt of £1.4bn and £0.8bn respectively.  Punch had been in discussions with its stakeholders to agree a consensual restructuring since late 2012.  In February 2014, Punch announced that it was no longer providing EBITDA support to the Securitisations and that one or both of Punch A or Punch B were therefore likely to breach covenants at the next testing date in April 2014.
