COMPLETION OF ACQUISITION

of

Arrow Global Group plc

by

Sherwood Acquisitions Limited

(a newly formed company owned by investment funds managed by TDR Capital LLP)

Sherwood Acquisitions Limited today completed the acquisition of Arrow Global Group plc. The boards of Arrow Global Group plc (the "Company" or "Arrow") and Sherwood Acquisition Limited ("Bidco") reached an agreement on the 31(st) March 2021 on the terms of a recommended acquisition. Bidco has today acquired the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Arrow (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition was completed by means of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act (the "Scheme").

The Acquisition values Arrow's entire issued, and to be issued, ordinary share capital at GBP565 million.

TDR Capital LLP has a long track record in the debt portfolio purchase sector, having helped oversee the successful growth of Lowell Group, a debt purchaser of unsecured debt, as its owner from 2011 until 2015. Arrow is a firm that Bidco has followed closely and looks forward to a new chapter in investing in Arrow as a private company.

In line with previous guidance issued by Arrow, as new shareholders, Bidco expects net leverage to be within the range of 3.0-3.5 times by 2023. The Acquisition is supported by a GBP1.5 billion-equivalent debt financing package comprising:

   --      A GBP285 million super senior revolving credit facility 
   --      Facility A - EUR725 million senior secured floating rate 6-year facility 
   --      Facility B - EUR250 million senior secured fixed rate 5-year facility 
   --      Facility C - GBP400 million senior secured fixed rate 5-year facility 

The financing package is underwritten by an arranger group comprising Barclays Bank PLC, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A, London Branch, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, NatWest Markets Plc, National Westminster Bank plc, Bank of America Europe Designated Activity Company, DNB (UK) Limited, HSBC Bank plc, Citibank N.A. London Branch and Lloyds Bank PLC.
