In anticipation of the scheduled test of the Leverage Ratio as at November 30, 2011 when the Company expected that the Leverage Ratio would be between 75% and 90%, the Company agreed with its lenders to waive the requirement to perform the Leverage Ratio test until November 30, 2012. Under the terms of the waiver, the fixed interest margin to be paid over LIBOR increased to 3.50%, prepayments became based on cash flow rather than a fixed amount of $10 million per quarter, and dividends on common shares cannot be paid.
In the three months ended June 30, 2012 a total of $12.1 million of debt was prepaid leaving a balance outstanding of $459.8 million. In the six months ended June 30, 2012 a total of $23.9 million of debt was prepaid.
Dividend Under the terms of the waiver of the requirement to perform the Leverage Ratio test, Global Ship Lease is not currently able to pay a dividend on common shares.
