As a result of this, the company now has the possibility to postpone payments of a value of USD 100 million of the company's debt in 2012 and 2013 until 2016. The postponed payments will be added to the company’s 2016 balloon repayment with an interest of 4 % compared to 2.8 % as is the case with the rest of the debt.
