The Credit Facility will be raised by the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, EPO Bulgaria EOOD ("EPO Bulgaria").

The Credit Facility will carry an interest of 1.5% per month on such amount as is drawn down. As security for the Credit Facility, the shares in EPO Aheloy OOD ("EPO Aheloy", the development and property-owning company for the Resort) will be transferred from EPO Bulgaria to two companies controlled by the owners of SI Finance for the full loan term.
