Barclays and J.P. Morgan acted as dealer managers in connection with Swissport's consent solicitation and offer to exchange all of the outstanding 6.750% senior notes due 2021 and 9.750% senior notes due 2022 for new 6.750% senior notes due 2021 and new 9.750% senior notes due 2022, and to consent to certain changes to the existing indentures.
