In addition, in 2015 FMS-WM has - as communicated before - purchased hybrid capital debt instruments issued by DEPFA through the funding vehicles: DEPFA Funding II LP, DEPFA Funding III LP and DEPFA Funding IV LP. The remaining hybrid securities issued by these vehicles not acquired by FMS-WM were subsequently acquired by DEPFA, such that DEPFA and FMS-WM jointly hold 100 % of DEPFA's hybrid capital debt instruments with an aggregate nominal value of EUR 1.2 bn. The purchases by FMS-WM of the various debt instruments issued by DEPFA ACS and DEPFA PBI aim at enhancing the wind down of DEPFA on an accelerated basis, which is one of FMS-WM's key goals. It can be expected that in a next step, in cooperation with FMS-WM, DEPFA Group's liabilities could be reduced and the cover pools of DEPFA ACS and DEPFA PBI adjusted accordingly. DEPFA and FMS-WM will work over the coming months to implement this strategy. Such strategy may affect the future market liquidity of the outstanding securities issued by DEPFA ACS and DEPFA PBI. DEPFA and FMS-WM will assess further measures to support the accelerated wind down of the DEPFA Group. This may include in particular a removal of ratings where there is no contractual requirement to maintain such ratings. FMS-WM was founded in July 2010 as a German state owned wind down agency in order to wind up risk positions and non-strategic operations of the former Hypo Real Estate Holding AG group in a manner aimed at maximizing the value of the relevant assets. In May 2014 FMS-WM was instructed to take over the whole share capital of DEPFA in order to wind down the DEPFA group. FMS-WM acquired DEPFA on 19 December 2014.
