unallocated expenses; and specific adjusting items, including Nassau IFRIC-12 construction margin. 8. EBITDA allocated to the Cruise segment is the sum of EBITDA of consolidated cruise ports and pro-rata Net Profit of

and Singapore. - Total container volumes (TEUs) grew by 3.2%, and General & Bulk volumes fell 31.8% in certain low margin cargo

items. - Total consolidated revenues were USD13.9m for the 3M period; excluding the impact of IFRIC-12 Construction revenues

at Nassau Cruise Port, total consolidated revenues were USD3.9m. - Segmental EBITDA for the three months to end March 2021 was a loss of USD1.0m.

Other developments

During the period, GPH's wholly-owned subsidiary, Port Finance Investment Limited, launched a Scheme of Arrangement in connection with the refinancing of the USD250,000,000 8.125% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2021 issued by Global Liman Isletmeleri A.S. Shortly after the period end, after a period of extensive engagement with noteholders, including certain key noteholders who formed an ad-hoc group, GPH withdrew from the Scheme process on 6 April 2021.

On 7 April 2021, Global Liman Isletmeleri A.S. launched a tender offer, which resulted in USD44.7m excluding accrued interest, being spent on purchasing its own Eurobonds at an average price of USD899.4 for each USD1,000 of principal, thereby reducing the outstanding nominal Eurobond of Global Liman Isletmeleri A.S. to USD200.3m.

On 17 May 2021 and 24 May 2021, GPH announced that it had entered a five-year senior secured loan agreement for up to USD261 million with the leading global investment firm, Sixth Street.

The loan agreement remains conditional on a number of factors, which are expected to be satisfied shortly. As part of the financing arrangements, the Company intends to issue warrants over its shares to the lender, which will become exercisable subject to certain events. GPH is holding a general meeting today, 9 June 2021, related to the issuing of the warrants. More details can be found at the investor relations section of the company website www.globalportsholding.com.

The net proceeds from the loan will be used, inter alia, to refinance the outstanding Eurobond of Global Liman Isletmeleri A.S. The loan agreement also provides for potential additional growth funding to provide flexible financing solutions for GPH's strategic objective of growing the number of cruise ports in its network.

Balance Sheet

At 31 March 2021 IFRS gross debt was USD552.5m (Ex IFRS16 Gross Debt: USD486.7m), compared to gross debt at 31 December 2021 of USD556.0m (Ex IFRS16 Gross Debt: USD487.4m) and net debt was USD381.9m (Ex IFRS16 Net Debt: USD316.0m) compared to net debt at 31 December 2020 of USD456.5m (Ex IFRS16: USD387.9m).
