IMPORTANT: Continued pause in sales, interest, maturity, dividend, and redemption payments
We appreciate the opportunity to provide you updated information on GWG Holdings, Inc. (“GWGH” or the “Company”).
We are progressing in our work with financial and legal advisors hired to assist the Company’s Board of Directors and management in identifying and evaluating restructuring alternatives, as well as available options to best conserve and maximize the value of GWGH’s assets for the benefit of our investors and to meet the Company’s financial obligations. We expect that the process of identifying and considering various alternatives to take at least another three to four weeks, and may take longer.
While we continue this process, GWGH paused L Bond sales and will not make monthly interest and maturity payments on its L Bonds, or dividends on the Redeemable Preferred Stock and Series 2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, while continuing to defer requests for redemptions. While you are not receiving payments, interest on the L Bonds will continue to accrue, and dividends on the Redeemable Preferred Stock and Series 2 Redeemable Preferred Stock will continue to cumulate. We will inform you if and when we are able to restart these cash payments in the future.
We know many will have questions, and we don’t yet have all the answers, but we are committed to finding the best path forward. Please also review the 8-K we filed with the SEC on January 18, 2022 and GWGH’s other existing and future filings with the SEC.
Again, we continue to work diligently to make our forward decisions with the goal to maximize value for GWGH’s investors. If you have any questions, please reach out to your financial advisor or registered representative or the GWGH Investor Services team at Invest@gwgh.com.
