Today, October 24, 2014, LBI and Landsbankinn agreed to extend the deadline for completion of the extension and amendment of the Landsbankinn bonds to October 31. 2014. In May this year, LBI and Landsbankinn agreed to restructure and amend the LB Financing obligations to LBI. Completion of the related amendment and extension agreements is subject to the satisfaction of conditions precedent regarding exemption requests that require the approval of the Central Bank of Iceland and the Ministry of Finance. These conditions remain unfulfilled and LBI awaits these approvals.
