"This negotiated agreement – the first of its kind in the Commonwealth's
restructuring – is a significant positive achievement for all parties
involved. Our group has always welcomed the opportunity to reach a fair
and consensual restructuring solution for PREPA, and by working together
with the Oversight Board and the Government of Puerto Rico we have taken
an important step towards collectively achieving that goal.

"By addressing PREPA's legacy debt a pathway can be cleared to
accelerate the transformation and long-term viability of the utility.
Under the terms of the agreement, our recoveries are now tied to PREPA's
sustainable success, and we are pleased to take part in a transaction
which we are confident will ultimately further the economic revival of
not just the utility, but the Commonwealth and its people."
