Notification of Impairment of RedInc and Martius instruments

Vunani Fund Managers has had extensive engagements over the past few weeks with both the issuer (RedInc) and the management of the Service agent (Mokoro) regarding the two SPV structures in which the below notes reside. Despite the SPVs performing satisfactorily, financial distress at the service provider level has led to subpar collections. Unfortunately, legal restrictions prevent the issuer from providing us with the detailed data needed for a comprehensive valuation.

Based on the available information, including direct engagements and other correspondence, and our best efforts assessment, we have decided to decrease the fair value of the various instruments, as outlined below. These adjustments vary based on considerations of seniority and claims to underlying cashflows within the securitised structures.

Vunani Fund Managers is in the process of appointing an independent valuator. This step, coupled with any new information that emerges, may necessitate a review of the above adjustments.

Furthermore, VFM maintains regular meetings with the issuer, underlying service agent, and other debtholders. This approach ensures that we stay informed and can adapt strategies as the situation evolves.
