RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Genworth Holdings, Inc. (the "Company"), a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Genworth Financial, Inc. (GNW) (Genworth), today announced that it is terminating its previously announced consent solicitation proposing certain amendments to the indentures (the "Indentures") governing the Company's outstanding notes.
The consent solicitation expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 9, 2019. As of the expiration time, the Company had not received the consent of holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount outstanding of certain series of notes outstanding under the Indentures.
Rather than extend the expiration date for those series, the Company has determined to terminate the consent solicitation with respect to all series. Genworth intends to take alternative measures, as it deems appropriate, to ensure compliance with the Indentures in connection with any potential sale of the Company's interest in Genworth MI Canada Inc. (Genworth Canada), which operates Genworth's Canadian mortgage insurance business.
